Matt’s birthday was last month, and despite the fact that life was chaotic that week, I made up for my negligence with a yummy cake a few days late.  He claims that his favorite cake is plain vanilla with store bought chocolate frosting…yes the kind from a jar.  He has a wife that makes from-scratch […]

Clementine Mousse Cheesecake

So this cheesecake seems complicated and full of too many steps.  It really isn’t, I swear.  If you break it down into steps to complete across a couple of days, it’s totally a manageable dessert.  Or if you have a whole afternoon to dedicate, you could do it in one day as well.  I’ll describe the steps how […]
