Warm summer evenings will be transitioning into cooler nights by crackling fires with cocoa
in hand.... but I am not ready to zoom right into pumpkins just yet...
 I am thinking summer as long as I can get away with it. Which here on my blog as I work ahead seasonally- will be probably until next week :) 




 I didn't get any dinner parties together with friends in August as planned- but, I am going to try to get one together in September and have been looking at older posts for some ideas.

Of course, since I am a cheesecake kind of girl- I had to include my favorite cheesecake recipes.
And this fresh blueberry topped cheesecake is a winner.
No extra gooey sugar- just fresh goodness with thick cheesecake.

And this one... delicious and so easy. This was actually made in a pressure cooker.
Talk about hand off baking- I put it together and the pressure cooker did the work.

I am a peanut butter and chocolate kind of girl
and this cheesecake literally takes the cake.
You can't make it all the time- each slice probably has the entire days allowance of calories in it lol
but it is a decedent and delicious treat.

all chocolate all the time- this might be your dream cheesecake.
