Did you know that July 30 is National Cheesecake Day?
Seems a little odd...more of a hearty cool weather dessert to me, but it is delicious all year round.
In case you do want to celebrate, here are some fun recipes from Kraft, including a few no bake options that are a little more summery, and might work a little better for you if you think the idea of turning on your oven now is grounds for institutional commitment.
Food Network is always a good source - they have plenty of ideas here. My sister (above, with a Christmas masterpiece) swears by Alton Brown's recipe - and she is the cheesecake queen, in my book. The recipe is a little fussy but the results are phenomenal.
What is your favorite kind of cheesecake? Do you have a favorite recipe? Or go-to place?
