I was told a while ago: ‘Every dish tells a story.‘ At the same time, food is meant to be savored with every bite. Since leaving the FoodBuzz event last week, I have had more desire to achieve more than I had since starting this blog. Joy’s been an incredible inspiration for my cooking and […]
Here is my take on a classic cheesecake recipe and adding one of my favorite combination of flavors: coffee, chocolate and Bailey’s Irish creme.
