  1. In am a big cheese lover. Thanks for sharing this heavenly recipe. Today i cook Shahi Halwa in my friend home in Narela which is a state near delhi in India. I hope you will love Shahi Halwa after trying 1st time. It’s a semolina pudding of india. This dessert is healthy & yummy. Recipe link is Keep share more soulful recipes. I will soon visit your great blog again.

  2. Looks delicious, I think I’ll give this one a try. Hey – I went to a friends for dinner the other night and was served that ‘crack’ slice you posted recently. It was sprinkled with dried raspberries and chopped pastachio nuts. I had three pieces, definitely addictive!

  3. Oh my goodness, deliciousness! My husband doesn’t eat cream cheese (or sour cream or cottage cheese or…), so I haven’t made a cheesecake in a decade because I really can’t (ok, shouldn’t) eat an entire cheesecake by myself. Somehow, this seems more reasonable size-wise.

  4. Reblogged this on Recipe Dreams and commented:
    Got me on cheesecake. One of my favorite deserts. This is a great option to have various flavors. Some with strawberries others with lemon.

    Mouth watering.
