New York Vanilla Bean Cheesecake with Fresh Strawberries

strawberryvanillacheesecake3Another cheesecake recipe :D Back to back to baaack. This one is also equally incredible. Everyone who knows me, knows that I am a huge fan of anything vanilla based. It's such a powerful, potent, yet delicate flavor that I simply cannot get enough of. This cheesecake embodies everything that is right within the world. It's tall, it's thick, it's rich, it's creamy, and it's easy to do. I sound like I'm describing a Hollywood housewife...

Thin Crust Pizza

thincrustpizza13Aside from tacos, my other food addiction is pizza. I grew up on the stuff. It's like a drug. I want it all the time. Who doesn't love the stuff?? Never in a million years did I think I'd be able to get a thin crust pizza out of my oven that looked like something you'd get from an actual professional pizza parlor with a 1400degree oven. I was wrong -- so very wrong.

blueberrymuffins24I don't like blueberry muffins at all. Yes, you heard me right -- I do not like blueberry muffins. In fact, I damn near despise them. They taste so...artificial and I find them to be rather headache inducing. However, these mothersmuckers right here?? Oh my God...I love these. I still won't eat any one else's blueberry muffin, but these are from the heavens above. If you like lemony blueberry muffins, you have to make these -- I swear you will be pleased.
