Thank you SOOOOOOOOO MUCH for your sweet birthday wishes for Shannon! You all made a special day even MORE special for her.
Although she is feeling a wee bit tired from all of her celebrating and could hardly keep her eyes open for me to take this photo ...
I can share that it is a happy tired for my birthday girl! She loved turning 21. And my other girl is very happy too that Shannon isn't too old now to hold her on her lap.
And if Maggie is happy, well then EVERYBODY is happy.
I saved a piece of birthday cheese cake just for you too.
I use this recipe. It is really easy and because the graham cracker crust is my favorite part of cheesecake, I double those ingredients.
Do you like your cheesecake plain, as it is often described in restaurants when not topped with something fruity or saucy?
I like it plain.
But I really do NOT like the word "plain." It is, oh I don't know - plain. I think it might be my least favorite adjective. I mean honestly, what IS plain? Plain can be subjective. Plain can be beautiful. Plain can be just perfect.
Like this cheesecake.
It is rich, moist and delicious. Absolutely delicious.
Did I mention that it was delicious?
D E L I C I O U S.
This is a great recipe that you can count on. It makes a classic cheesecake.
So please help yourself to this delicious and so-not-plain cheesecake and thank you for being a part of our family! Because you really and truly are.
Shannon is taking a little nap and Maggie - well guess whose lap she is in now?
