Happy National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day
OK, so if you know me - you know how much I love cheesecake and there's a day to celebrate one of my favorites. I'm a bit obsessed with cheesecake - I do make my own and buy it too. I have tried many and I think hands down Cheesecake Factory is the best. Not only for a variety of flavors, great texture and delicious tastes. No one can come close not even Juniors in New York. Two of my favorite flavors are Oreo and Godiva, the one I love to make is Oreo and Oreo with hint of orange flavor. Enjoy !!
Today- March 6th - is National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day!
and now a little history about this Delicious subject
A Greek writer named Athenaeus recorded the oldest surviving cheesecake recipe. The ancient dessert called for just three ingredients—cheese, honey, and flour. Despite its simplicity, the Greeks believed that cheesecake had special powers. Brides and grooms ate it as wedding cake, and athletes enjoyed it before the first Olympic games in 776 BC!
The cheesecake we know and love today relies heavily on cream cheese, which wasn’t invented until the 1870s. By the early 1900s, cheesecake appeared on almost every restaurant menu in New York City and soon became a nationwide sensation. People love to experiment with interesting cheesecake flavors like piña colada, turtle, pumpkin pecan, crème brûlée, red velvet, and today's reason to celebrate, white chocolate.
