It's really funny how The Cheesecake Lady got its start because I never tasted cheesecake until I was 34 years old. The very thought of cheese in a cake was reprehensible in my mind (silly me)! In December, 1999, my employer took the staff to the Macaroni Grill for a Christmas luncheon. Almost everyone ordered cheesecake. When they discovered I had never had it, there was a major production to get me to try it. I did and it was the best thing I ever tasted. After that I found myself driving to the Macaroni Grill after church every Sunday for cheesecake for me and my kids. Realizing I couldn’t afford to keep up my habit, I decided to learn how to make them. During this time I was on the Atkins Diet so I decided to make a low carb version from a recipe off the Equal box. The results were disappointing. So I decided to 'play' around and try different things. After many taste tests and lots of advice and criticism from my favorite Aunt Ree (R.I.P.), I knew I finally nailed it because all she could say was, "THAAAAATT CHEESECAKE...!" over and over again. I discovered the better quality ingredients the better the cheesecake!
I use only the finest, freshest ingredients for our cakes. And, because I am a foodie, who loves to cook and loves to see people enjoy good food as much as I do, I bake each cake with love and passion. I invite you to "TASTE THE LOVE!”
