Is cheesecake an important part of your family traditions, especially during the holidays? For my family, cheesecake is likely one of the most requested things made every holiday and it is made usually by one person – my husband. When we first started dating nearly two decades ago, I remember my husband telling me he could make two things – cheesecake and manicotti, both of which are absolutely amazing. While he can make a lot more now, his cheesecake is still one of his amazing specialties and he is constantly experimenting with this recipe. That being said, we still love to try different recipes, helping him evolve his own and giving us some variety. Recently, we were both excited to try a new cookbook that sounded perfect for our own little family – The Cheesecake Bible: 300 Sweet & Savory Recipes for Cakes and More by George Geary. Once our review copy arrived, we couldn’t wait to get started!

The Cheesecake Bible: Our Thoughts
As a cheesecake fan, I honestly couldn’t wait for this cookbook to arrive. When it did, I was completely floored. The Cheesecake Bible: 300 Sweet & Savory Recipes for Cakes and More is absolutely HUGE! I mean, I could swear I was gaining calories just by looking at all the delicious recipes. Going through the cookbook, I was even impressed they had both types of cheesecakes, both the ones that are mostly cream cheese, as well as those which add or are sour cream based. It is usually a texture thing but something many cheesecake fanatics are passionate about when it comes to making cheesecakes. Probably the recipe I am the most excited about making is their key lime cheesecake, which sounds truly amazing and looks oh so easy to make. This is not one of those intimidating cookbooks that make you feel like you have to be a professional chef. It is truly down to Earth and designed to be easy for any level of chef.
