Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes

Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes

It’s hard to believe, but it’s time to start thinking about summer desserts.  School is almost out, the temps are warming up and it’s time for Memorial Day.  I think we should celebrate with Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes. These are little bites (or two) of delicious, summery, cheesecake perfection, topped with homemade strawberry sauce and anchored […]

Cheesecake Bars And A Messy Life

Caramel Cheesecake Bars

Sometimes the best things in life are a little messy.  Like these Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cheesecake Bars With A Pretzel Crust.  Much like my life, they are a little crazy, they are packed full of “stuff”, and they can get a little (or maybe a lot) messy. Messy isn’t always a bad thing, and these […]

Cheesecake Minis

Salted Caramel Cheesecake

Chocolate, caramel and a touch of sea salt come together with cheesecake to create a delicious bite sized dessert in these cheesecake minis. May is one of those months that never seems like it will be busy, but I’m surprised how full our calendar is.  With Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and the last day of […]

Margarita Cheesecake Pie

Margarita Cheesecake Recipe

I love margaritas.  I love pie.  I love cheesecake.  So I figured that combining the three might be a good idea.  And let me tell you, it most certainly is. What takes this pie totally over the top is the crust.  It’s made of Ritz Crackers.  Buttery, salty, perfection.  It’s the perfect compliment to cream […]

Coconut Cream Cheesecake Bars

Today I’m sharing a delicious and easy dessert recipe that is perfect for Easter, and the best part (aside from it tasting amazing) […]

Chocolate And Peppermint Striped Delight

“Key Lime” Cloud Squares

Key Lime Cloud Squares

When you say dessert, I almost always think, “chocolate!”.  But there is something I really love about lime.  It’s refreshing, it’s tart and sweet, it hits a lot of flavor notes and is so fabulous for summer.  Every time I eat a lime dessert, I am reminded how much I enjoy them and that I […]

Frozen Chocolate Mousse Squares

Frozen Chocolate Mousse Squares

Living in Arizona, I am always looking for no bake recipes during the summer.   With Father’s Day and a slew of family birthdays for us in June and July, as well as the 4th of July, we always have many occasions that call for special desserts in our home. While cake is great, a nice […]

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes With Gingersnap Crust

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes With Gingersnap Crust

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away.  Where did the year go?   It’s time to start figuring out the Thanksgiving menu.   In our family, the Thanksgiving dinner menu pretty much stays the same from year to year, but I like to try and work some new recipes into dessert.  These […]
