Am I bringing to you two cake recipes in a row? Yes, yes I am indeed. I was planning on waiting with this one, but as I was going through the recipes I am sharing with you this week, I got a little excited when I looked at these images. Given the fact that the cake no longer exists, I couldn’t help but wanting to relive my recent cheesecake experience in the form of today’s post. I hope you can indulge me in yet another cake talk.

Since Friday’s recipe was quite an unusual cake and because cheesecake belongs in its own category, I am actual quite alright with what’s happening right now. Don’t worry, I’ll be giving you lots of variety in the days to come ;).

But let’s move on to the best cheesecake recipe I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. With my recent trip to NYC, which inspired me to whip up my own version of New York Cheesecake, I can only tell you this much. New York City is absolute boss when it comes to all things cheesecake. It simply can’t be beat! [Read more…]

Cheesecake Fig Slice

One of our favorite good-for-you desserts. Juicy figs, a silky cream cheese layer, and a nutty base. You’d never guess this is healthy even in the slightest!

If you’d asked me two years ago if I would ever make a recipe using figs, you would have heard a resounding no from me. I was beyond intimidated by this gorgeous fruit. Even though they’re pretty to look at and have intrigue written all over them, I couldn’t bring myself to picking up a few. And then Costco happened on a Monday morning. Proudly displaying case upon case of the most gorgeous figs I’d ever laid eyes on. Just like that I grabbed a case, made my way to the register, and started this figgy relationship.

Things quickly got serious. I found myself going back for just one more all day long. I don’t even care to admit that I’m completely and totally addicted. And I suppose I have this little blog to thank for that. It’s the one thing that pushes me to try new things, invent new recipes, celebrate the classics, and keeps my life more interesting and exciting than I could have ever dreamed. Which also means that I have to thank you. Because none of this would happen or could be possible without you. Cheesy, but oh so true.

So I hope you indulge me for another couple of minutes as I share with you my new fig obsession. I have a feeling you’ll really like this one. [Read more…]

Welcome to another Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine can basically be summed up by these pictures. Celebrating Mother’s Day was the main event, of course. After making these tarts a couple of weeks ago, I knew it wouldn’t be long before they’d make their appearance once again. Being inspired by individual desserts, the giant pack of Costco’s strawberries in my fridge, chocolate, and Friday’s smoothie, I knew exactly what to whip up for Sunday’s occasion.

Welcome to another Hump Day! Today’s recipe is for all the chocolate lovers out there. Especially those that can’t be bothered to bake or are short on time and still want to indulge. Although I love being in the kitchen and spent considerable amount in our little space, I can certainly appreciate a no-bake dessert that doesn’t need much work, is no fuss and has everything I could possibly want as a self-proclaimed chocoholic.

I actually decided to make this one on a whim and couldn’t help but share once I realized how incredible tasty it was. I just knew that anyone who adores chocolate as much as I do, would be thrilled to have a bowl or two of this in his/her hands.

This is Chocolate Mousse at its best – made extra delicious with a Cheesecake twist! [Read more…]

Happy Monday, friends! Our outdoor adventures turned into full on spring cleaning over the weekend. Both of us were exhausted by the end of Sunday, but it was well worth it. As long as the weather is nice, I don’t even care what we’re up to. After being cooped up inside for quite some time while winter lasted, I find it funny how excited we were to sweep the garage or take down our outdoor Christmas lights, ha! Hopefully we’ll continue to feel that way once weekly lawn mowing duties come around too… Even though I was running low on energy, I still had enough strength to whip up something delicious in our tiny little kitchen.

The result was anything but small. If you’re deciding to give this a go, you are in for an utterly satisfying, rich and decadent treat. Though it requires a little bit of work and patience, it is well worth it in the end.
