Since I am sidelined with my broken foot I decided to go through my photo stash and “relive” some great moments. Of course cheesecake was the first category.

I think I may open a cream cheese business. What do you think? #caramel #cheesecake My Tip Friday, 6 Tips To A Perfect Cheesecake Experience will guide you to that perfect cheesecake outcome!
