Thoughts

Autumn is officially here! That means a few things: my birthday, new wardrobe, leaves changing colors, chilly mornings, and pumpkins…pumpkins everywhere and in everything. When I found this recipe, I knew I had to make it. I love cheesecake and this one is perfect for the season.

It is a heavy cheesecake, but has a very gentle flavor. The orange gives it a wonderful twist. It is a finishing touch that this cheesecake can’t without. It is best served chilled. The flavor is much more prominent when it is cool.

I would also like to add that today is my 2 year anniversary of starting this blog! Thank you to all of you who have been following and here is to another great year full of recipes!

Enjoy!
