Why I Love This Recipe

I have always loved cheesecake (who doesn't?), but it is an expensive dessert to buy. So, I thought, I can make this. I found a recipe online somewhere years ago, and I just kept playing around with it until I got it to the point where my family loved it. A lot of the girls I work with request this cheesecake for special occasions. It is not difficult to make; it just takes a little time.
