Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle

Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle


This is my favorite time of the year.  I love the warmer weather because it means I can get on my bicycle and ride into the canyon.  I love how the mountains are green instead of brown, and I love all the beautiful flowers that appear in my neighborhood.  And I love seeing fresh berries in the stores because that means its time to make some yummy fresh berry desserts like Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle.

This recipe calls for an angel food cake that you will cut into cubes.  I just purchased this one at my grocery store.

This dessert is sort of a cross between strawberry cheesecake and strawberry trifle, and I’ll just bet you’re going to love it.

Creamy Pear Pie

Creamy Pear Pie



Several years ago, I got this Creamy Pear Pie recipe from the blog Our Best Bites.  The “creamy” part is made with sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger.  The first time I made it, my father-in-law told me it was fantastic and that it could win a blue ribbon.  I thought it was good, but I was sure that it could be even better.

Since then, I’ve made it several times.  I added an extra pear and doubled the cinnamon and ginger.  I also added a great pie crust that is made with real butter.  In fact, this is my new favorite pie crust.  It’s super easy to work with—and by that, I mean that it doesn’t tear easily when you are rolling it out.  And it tastes great, too.  I would even recommend using it with other pie recipes that you make.  If you just need a single crust, it can easily be halved.

I recently looked for the recipe on Our Best Bites so that I could link to it, but it’s no longer on their site.  I’m guessing that they put it in one of their cookbooks and removed it from their blog.  But here’s my version of it.  I think you’ll agree that it’s a blue-ribbon recipe.

Eggnog Cheesecake

Eggnog Cheesecake



Christmas is getting close, and I have a really good dessert to share with you that is perfect to serve during the holidays.  This Eggnog Cheesecake is probably the best homemade cheesecake I’ve ever tasted.  I have another cheesecake on this website that I’ve been making for years, and if you want to make a cheesecake in a hurry, click here:  Simple Cheesecake Pie with Fruit Topping.  But when you want to serve a beautiful, elegant dessert at Christmas, and you’re willing to put just a little more time into it, I suggest making this Eggnog Cheesecake.
