Brown Sugar Cookie Crust Cheesecake

Did you survive the Holidays?  Eat too much? Shop too much?  Get a face full of pepper spray while trying to secure a $2 waffle iron? (I already have a waffle iron, and I hope you do, too. Pepper spray sucks.) No matter…I hope you had a great long weekend full of friends and family, […]

Toasted Coconut & Raspberry Cheesecake…and a Giveaway!

I adore cheesecake.  Thick, creamy, sweet.  I have to say, my favorite cheesecake is plain, nothing baked in, just the cream cheesy goodness.  Sure, I’ll top it with a variety of different things, like chocolate ganache, whipped cream, fruits, lemon curd.  But when it gets right down to it, just keep the cheesecake portion PLAIN. […]

Chocolate Malt Cake from Bon Appétit

Have you ever gotten a magazine, been flipping through, and then…BAM.  There it is.  The recipe. The picture.  The one thing you MUST make immediately?  Well, in the latest issue of Bon Appétit, I had that experience. Towards the back of the magazine, the picture of Christina Tosi’s Chocolate Malt Cake pulled me in. There […]

Lemon Meringue and Fresh Raspberry Cheesecake

It would appear that I cannot leave cheesecake alone.  Poor, sweet, delicious cheesecake.   You never stood a chance. A couple of weeks ago I found myself craving Lemon Meringue Pie.  One of my first experiences baking with my blog was to make the freeform lemon tartlets from the Daring Bakers Challenge and I quickly and […]
