Ultimate Oreo Cake

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep? Happens to me more than I’d like, but often that’s when a lot of brainstorming takes place in my noggin. Sometimes I’d rather be sleeping, but that’s when an idea pops in my head that makes me wantRead More

Red Velvet Cheesecake

When it comes to red velvet, it seems to be a very popular flavor…and to the ones who love it, they don’t just love it.  They adore it.  Obsess over it.  Worship it.  Okay fine, so maybe not worship, but I’ve noticed that when the flavor is even mentioned around some people, I can almostRead More

Mocha Cheesecake

If you’re thinking “Hey, is she making a lot of cheesecakes lately?” by looking at Facebook and some of the recent posts, the answer is Yes.  Actually, Heck Yes.  I’ve been a huge fan of cheesecakes throughout my life, and up until recently, I’d never made a REAL one from scratch.  I learn something newRead More

Candy Bar Cheesecake Brownie

Four glorious words, all rolled into one delicious dessert.  I like it.  I originally found this recipe in the Philadelphia recipe book, a book filled with tons and tons of recipes using Philadelphia cream cheese.  I love cooking and baking with cream cheese!  This is one of my favorite recipe books to look through, becauseRead More

Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

During college, I worked on a dinner cruise boat as part of the waitstaff.  Cheesecake was the usual dessert at the end of the meal, and after everyone was served, you could find me back in the kitchen, hunting for extra dessert that wasn’t used.  That may have been my favorite part of the eveningsRead More
