Be it plain, or swirled, topped or naked, Cheesecake is the number one dessert in my books. It is silky and creamy and rich. I love it in all of its cheesecake-y glory.
But did you know that cheesecake has a history. A very long one indeed. Marcus Porcius Cato of 234 to 149 B.C wrote a treatise on agriculture depicting the first known (written) recipe for cheesecake. It was called Libum, and was a cheesecake offered as tribute in temples. Libum was also fed to athletes at the first recorded olympic games in 776 B.C.
Much much later, in 1872 a cheese maker by the name of William Lawrence in New York, invented a creamy, spreadable cheese. It was packaged and sold as Philidelphia Cream Cheese, which was later purchased by Kraft. Cream cheese is now the cheese of choice when making cheesecake.
This cheesecake is fantastic. You can use cherries instead of strawberries if you like, but I prefer strawberry with my cheesecake. Awe inspiring when shared, but great to keep all to yourself too. Enjoy.

With winter still battering us in the northern areas of North America, a good stew is just about the best thing you can eat. It warms you from the inside. It’s lighter than a beef stew too.View Details
