Joey's Cheesecake Recipe

So for quite a few years I have been hearing about this amazing Cheesecake Recipe my Father in Law (aka. dad) is known for. Recently I had the privilege of observing the master in action making this elusive cheesecake.

Recipe was featured in a local Firehouse Cookbook

This cheesecake has a smooth velvety texture with warm vanilla undertones and with a small crunch of the gram cracker crust makes for a delightful dessert. I also love the rustic look of the gram cracker crust, quite impressive!

And yes..."This Is A Really Great Dessert"

An Ode To My Mother

This is a non-related Cupcake, apron, retro, foodie post.....and in a way it is.

Moms don't get the thanks they deserve and though it is not Mother's Day.... sometimes the best way to show someone you care can be on a very ordinary day.

I would like to take the time to give thanks to my Mother who taught me allot of different things in life from cooking, crafting, starting a business and the art of "if you want something done right... do it yourself" but most of all thanks for putting up with me and believing I could accomplish anything even when I didn't. You always have a knack of letting me know that your still here <3
