Lemon Raspberry Cream Cheesecake

 (I couldn't find my camera.  So you get mediocre cell phone pics instead.)

On our anniversary, my husband and I went to the Cheesecake Factory.  For dessert we ordered a piece of their Lemon Raspberry Cream Cheesecake.  I took one bite, closed my eyes, and told him: "THIS is the dessert I wanted last weekend." ("Last weekend" had contained a really rough date night, with tantrum-throwing children keeping us close to home and the whole thing topped off by a complete failure to find the really delicious fresh-tasting dessert I was craving.) Of course, I didn't KNOW that Lemon Raspberry Cream Cheesecake was exactly what I was craving at the time.  I had a only a general idea of what the perfect dessert would taste like . . . which is probably why we didn't find it.  This cheesecake, though, was definitely it.  The slightly tart, summery taste of lemon was perfectly complimented by the raspberries and . . . well, if you've ever tasted it, you know what I mean.

Aren't the pictures pretty?

So, while I was making Lemon Raspberry Cream Cheesecake for my sister's birthday today (and, oh my goodness it is SO GOOD), I decided I should do some work on the blog.  So I logged in and tried to see if I could add some pretty pictures to the background and accidentally saved it and lost the previous format for forever.  Oops.  But the new pictures in the background are pretty, if rather distracting, so I suppose it'll serve until I get the motivation to figure out how to make it look exactly how I want it to look. 

And the cheesecake recipe?  Well, you'll just have to wait until tomorrow.  :)
