Flashback and Foodie Friday

Each Friday, my friend Suzy encourages us to join her in "Flashback Friday". We enjoy looking back at the food we have served, the gardens we tended, and the trips we have taken over the last year or so. I am sharing a delicious cheesecake that I made during the winter, using a recipe that Ann shared.

I love Fridays for many reasons, and always look forward to Foodie Friday where I can get inspiration from the many wonderful cooks out there. To see what else is cooking for Foodie Friday, check out Gollum's blog. Designs by Gollum

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. This does sounds wonderful, Debbie, and it looks so beautiful too! I love how you did the criss-cross pattern over the cheesecake. I'll bet this would taste wonderful with fresh raspberries - oh, yum!

  2. Well, this cheesecake sounds wonderful, but I'm sure I'd need to climb 46 peaks to burn off the calories! Nancy

  3. That cheesecake looks awesome, Debbie!

  4. Debbie - the cheesecake looks delicious...I don't think it would last long!

  5. What a stunning cheesecake. The crust looks marvelous, and I can just imagine my fork cutting through all of those lovely layers--the crisscrossed chocolate, the creamy center, and finally, the crunchy-crust. Heaven!

  6. Beautiful cheesecake, Debbie, and it sounds delicious. I'd imagine that it disappears fast.

  7. Debbie, that looks sinfully delicious!

  8. Can't believe I missed this post. It looks so good ;) I don't remember seeing this one before and I will have to try it for a special occasion. The criss cross pattern is stunning!
