The Cheesy Ladies at it Again! (part 2)

Here we are yet again with more cheesy displays of joy!  I tell ya people I absolutely love making and eating this Peanut Butter Brownie Cheesecake <sigh of happiness>.  Nevertheless, this isn’t about me today, it’s about my niece.

A Cheesy Family

Yesterday was National Cheesecake Day!  So in celebration I have decided to share a couple of cheesecakes my family and I have made.

I absolutely love baking and being in the space.  I’m a true believer of this place being the heart of the home.  It’s a space filled with a little joy for everyone and brings people together.  A place children can learn right from wrong and adults hold private conversations.  It creates messes, but acts as a platform for some of your best creations.  It’s where you run to for a drink or a late night snack when you simply can’t take it anymore.  It’s called the kitchen everyone!

A few years ago my grandmother passed away and I decided to make a baking apron using her clothes.  She was always in the kitchen therefore this was my creative and personal way of keeping her close.  Every time I bake it’s important to wear my apron.  If I don’t wear it I feel like I’m cheating or doing her wrong – like it’s a sin, weird huh?  I even went out and bought aprons for my nieces and nephews.  LOL “Kids, go put your on Nanna!” <chuckle>

Well, while passing down the baking apron torch, my niece has been baking and cooking away with my mother over the summer.  Once a week they create something new to share with everyone and guess what they made?  You got it – cheesecake!

Isn’t it adorable!  I’m not a hater on her pre-made graham cracker crust for its one I use on a regular.  I also appreciate her nicely thin cut fresh strawberries.  I’m very proud of my niece for making her first Strawberry Cheesecake and look forward to many, many more.
