New York Style Pumpkin Cheesecake. High, dense, rich, smooth, creamy. (Move over, Cheesecake Factory!) Favorite thing on the holiday dessert table!
my dream. the dog, the stone fireplace, and the cabin.
Slate fireplace! 1- build your wooded box around the firebox you pick out using 2x4 and ply board. Leaving the opening for your firebox to slide in. 2- use slate, tile, or any other stone. Lay on the ply board like lying a tile floor. 3- any boarder stone will serve as a mantle 4- pick out your grout color 5- and you have a finished fireplace that looks like it was build with your home.
***DANGER***This recipe came from someone who actually worked at a Mexican restaurant and passed along this recipe on how to make Queso Blanco Dip (white cheese dip) like they do in their restaurant. Hallelujah!!!!!
donut.- I literally became a supermom after making these super easy donuts for my girls..my only twist to the original recipe was instead of dipping it in butter after frying the dough (I just felt too guilty..) I added 1 tsp of cornstarch to the cinnamon sugar mix and does the trick to stick to the donut..(my mom's secret..). Definitely will make this!!
