My Love Affair with Cheesecake

I am a huge cheesecake person, but I’m a bit picky when it comes to cheesecakes, because they have to be just right! And if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. That’s why I spent so long creating The Best Homemade Cheesecake Recipe Ever!

A Thick and Creamy Slice of Vanilla Cheesecake on a Plate

My Love Affair with Cheesecake

I have a bit of a thing for cheesecake. And I’m very particular about the texture of it. I like it thick and creamy. In fact, I don’t even order cheesecake at most restaurants because I’m afraid it just won’t be right. And if something isn’t right, why waste the calories?

Growing up, I always got a hard time from my family. They found it fascinating how I’d eat cheesecake. Every bite had to have crust. And before I moved onto the next bite, I made sure there were no remnants of the previous one left on the plate. When I was done, you wouldn’t even know the plate ever had food on it. It was wiped clean. No joke.

Can you tell I’m a little OCD at times?

Well, this homemade vanilla one is definitely awesome. The flavor and texture are just right. It’s quick, easy and delicious! And you cook it right in the oven without a water bath.

It’s perfect for taking a fork and just digging in while nobody’s looking. If nobody’s looking then the calories don’t count, right? RIGHT?!?

Phew! That’s what I thought. 🙂
