CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE
CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE
I have only attempted to make cheesecake a few times so I was happy when this attempt came out PERFECT! I had seen this recipe on Pinterest and tucked it away for a baking day, that baking day came when I baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies that came out a flat mess. (I've got pictures to prove it, next time I will listen to negative comments on a blog before I make a recipe). But, the cookies tasted SO good and I couldn't bring myself to throw them away, they were just flat and all broken to pieces and I knew I needed to make "Lemonade out of Lemons", ya know what I mean.
I wanted to make a really cool recipe for today and well this recipe is just that. It's super delicious and super cool and just perfect for a flop cookie recipe made into an AMAZING Cheesecake recipe. Enjoy!
We have completed our ONE YEAR of CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGES, this month completes my goal of a 12 month challenge and I couldn't be more proud. I started this CRAZY challenge one year ago on my blogs one year anniversary and it has been a HUGE success, I've met some amazing bloggers and one very special blogger that I even got to meet in person and I am sure we will be friends for many years to come. (Yes, that's YOU Nicole at The Daily Dish)
I know this FINAL month is going to be a real big treat with all the yummy cheesecake recipes. My second BLOG-anniversary is coming up and I will be taking on a different-challenge for the next year, so please Stay-Tuned as to what the will be.
I do want to say one BIG HUGE THANK YOU! to all of you, to all the new folks who just joined in, to all the bloggers who have been here for all tweleve months and to everyone else inbetween. All of your posts and recipes have been SO wonderful and now maybe this year's bucket list will be to try and re-make SO MANY of the great recipes I've came across on this CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE.
