Cranberry Cheesecake

Sponsored by The Cheesecake Factory At Home
Cheesecake has become my obsession as of late. As a little one, my dad would always fuss at me for stickin' spoon after spoon in the cream cheese and eatin' it for a snack leavin' none for our morning bagels. Many a Sunday after church we'd eat lunch at the famed Cheesecake Factory; classic cheesecake with extra strawberry toppin' was always my order of choice. Momma would scoff when I beggged to eat dessert before the main course.


In Hs, my best friends worked at a local cafe, and we'd always show right before closin' after the Friday Night Football game and use their discount order a strawberry cheesecake. I know the waitress probably had a chuckle or two when she would see us comin'.


In College, I won the campus Iron Chef with a good friend for our White Chocolate Cheesecake.






I once heard my Grandma say, " in the south food is our love language. It’s how we show our love." I find that statement to be right during the holidays. Days on end spent in the kitchen learnin' to bake from my grandma.  As the days move faster and age slowly creeps upon I have fond memories of many a time spent in the kitchen masterin' a new skill.
