Why bake a cheesecake when you can make a no-bake pumpkin cheesecake?! This pumpkin cheesecake is light and airy and so much quicker to make than a baked cheesecake!  Use the filling for a full cheesecake or fill individual muffin cups for mini cheesecakes. You could also use it to make a pumpkin cheesecake parfait!  I distinctly remember the first time I ever baked a cheesecake. It was early on in my baking days, probably about 9 years ago.

Cheesecake Cookie Dough Bars

Cheesecake cookie dough bars are exactly as wonderful as they sound. While the bars are in fact baked, the cookie dough layer stays perfectly fudgy while the cheesecake layer is velvety smooth. These little gems were a baking happy accident. I had no intentions whatsever of making what these turned out to be. In fact, I had every intention in the world of baking thick and fudgy brownies with a cheesecake layer in the middle with another layer of brownie swirl on top. I had plans. I was going to get up early on Saturday morning and have those babies …

Cheesecake is my husbands all time favorite meal. Chocolate chip cheesecake to be exact. And yes, I said favorite meal. That is always his answer when asked what his favorite meal is. One of the many reasons why I love him so much. We have gone to New York together twice and both times cheesecake is high on the must eat list. The cheesecake from Carnegie Deli has been both of our favorites. There is just something about the texture, the tanginess, and that delicious sugar cookie crust. It is just perfect. After visiting New York a few weeks ago …

My husband and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary yesterday. I cannot even believe that it has been an entire year since we spent the most amazing and fun day with our family and friends. We laughed, we cried, we danced, we sang, we hugged, we kissed, we left husband and wife. I knew before even asking what Chris would want more than anything for this occasion. A chocolate chip cheesecake. When we were first dating and Chris found out that I liked to bake, it was the first thing he asked me to make him. I had never even heard …
