    • Hiya! I’m Christy from the blog My Invisible Crown  It’s so nice to meet you! 😀 I’m your new Cheesecake girl but you’ll also see lots of pies and tarts, too. I’m a serious sugar addict so pretty much anything goes with me in regards to desserts. Over on MIC I share most everything that I cook for my …
  2. Brownie Batter Cheesecake Dip Recipe
    • Brownie Batter Cheesecake Dip Photo
    • I have to admit I’m a sucker for all things chocolate. Whether it’s turtles, chocolate tacos, or this brownie batter cheesecake dip. As long as it’s chocolate I’m a happy girl.  Some days I crave recipes that are just rich with chocolatey goodness. Other times I crave more subtle recipes with just a hint of chocolate. It completely depends on my …
  3. Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownie Recipe
    • Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies Picture
    • Turns out that there are three types of people in the world. The first type are the true foodie people. They would not even dream of eating something made from a box mix. Hamburger Helper? Puh-lease. The second type? Well, homemade brownies just aren’t their thing. They prefer the boxed version. Why mess with perfection, …
  4. Oreo Cheesecake Bars Recipe
    • Cheesecake Bars Photo
    • It may be my background, it may be my culture, but when I first stumbled upon a slutty brownie recipe, I raised my eyebrow and few thoughts came to my mind. Why that particular name? What was so mind blowing about the brownies that they have to be called slutty? Turns out it was the …
  5. Cheesecake Factory Red Velvet Cheesecake Recipe
    • Cheesecake Factory Red Velvet Cheesecake Picture
    • When it comes to fun festive desserts, red velvet ranks pretty high on my list. There’s just something that feels so special about a beautiful red, cocoa-laced cake. My girls love when I make them red velvet cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese icing. I’ve been known to top them off with these really cute homemade chocolate …
  6. No Bake Cherry Cheesecake Recipe
    • No Bake Cherry Cheesecake Photo
    • This is my first post for Food Fanatic. I have to admit I was really stressed out about it. I mean the first post is always the most important, right? It sets the tone, lets people know what to expect from you. So the pressure is on. Do you want to set the bar high …
  7. New York Cheesecake Recipe
    • New York Cheesecake Photo
    • We all know I love cheesecake. Pretty much any kind. I even ordered a savory cheesecake at a restaurant once and then went home and tried to recreate it because I loved it so much. I’m usually into lots of fun flavors and combinations but I thought since I’m still fairly new to Food Fanatic that I …
  8. Crème Brûlée Cheesecake Recipe
    • Crème Brulee Cheesecake Photo
    • At first glance these little individual crème brûlée cheesecakes with fresh berries look like crème brûlée instead, right? I mean exactly like it! But it’s not. I was making these cute little single serving desserts and thought why not? I love the crunch of a traditional crème brûlée. Brûlée in French means “burnt” because… well, …
  9. Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes Recipe
    • Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes Photo
    • Cheesecake has always been one of my favorite desserts. Which makes the fact that I never bake them a little strange. Don’t get me wrong – I buy the heck out of them. But baking is a whole different ballgame. Did you know that cheesecakes are incredibly fickle? It’s true! I’ve read so many different …
  10. Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie Recipe
    • Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie Photo
    • Another year has flown by and here we are again… it’s holiday season! That’s good and bad for me. I absolutely love holiday baking and the communion around food and fork with the people that mean so much to me. But I almost hate the stress that I inevitably put on myself to do everything …
  11. Cranberry Eggnog Cheesecake Recipe
    • Cranberry Eggnog Cheesecake Photo
    • You know how there are those years you’re just not feeling all the holiday prep? The cooking and the cleaning, the shopping and entertaining. Well this year isn’t one of them for me!! I am SO into all things holiday. I can’t exactly put my finger on it. Why it’s different at different times in your …
  12. Oatmeal Crumble Peanut Butter Cheesecake Squares Recipe
    • Oatmeal Crumble Peanut Butter Cheesecake Squares Photo
    • Did your mom have “that dessert” that she ALWAYS brought to every.single.event that required some sort of food bring-age, without fail? My mom did. I can recall MANY church potlucks, get-togethers at friend’s places, family gatherings and even some random after-school snack-age that involved these chewy chocolate oatmeal bars. But, really, they were made of butter, …
  13. Peanut Butter Cheesecake French Toast Recipe
    • Peanut Butter Cheesecake French Toast Photo
    • I’m thrilled to be sharing delectable peanut butter treats and desserts with you here on Food Fanatic! Could not be more excited to get fanatical on you all with peanut butter deliciousness. To say I’m highly passionate about nut butter probably sounds… well, nutty, but I’m just fine with that. Color me nutty, but I LOVE the stuff. I …
  14. Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes Recipe
    • Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes Photo
    • When I was in junior high, I was obsessed with having a secret admirer on Valentine’s Day. Every year, I’d eye the balloons and candy that were being delivered to the classrooms, wondering if one of them was for me from a secret love. So, so dramatic. I think I might have been watching too much Saved By …
  15. Mini Peanut Butter Oreo Cheesecakes Recipe
    • Mini Peanut Butter Oreo Cheesecakes Photo
    • I’m in love with Oreos. That wasn’t always the case, but they’ve grown on me more and more ever since the advent of the Golden Birthday Cake Oreos. That was the gateway Oreo that got me obsessed with all other Oreos, including Mint, Lemon, even Cookie Dough Oreos, and now Peanut Butter… of course. I still give …
  16. Lemon Drop Meringue Cheesecake Recipe
    • Lemon Drop Meringue Cheesecake Photo
    • Let’s have a conversation about boozy desserts shall we? I feel like they fall into two camps, the first being the one that gets you a little buzzed while still satisfying your sweet tooth and the other merely compliments the dessert without tasting the alcohol that’s in there. However, it is most definitely there, friends, and shouldn’t be …
  17. Cookie Dough Cheesecake Recipe
    • Cookie Dough Cheesecake Photo
    • I love cheesecake. It has to be one of my favorite desserts, yet I often forget about it since I never eat it. I used to date someone who was freakishly obsessed with cheesecake. Like, that was all he ever wanted, ordered it whenever we’d go out, and requested I make it constantly. I’d say if he …
  18. Duggar Family No Bake Cheesecake Recipe
  19. Gluten Free Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes Recipe
    • Gluten Free Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes Photo
    • I recently returned from a trip to Warsaw, Poland. I have to admit that I wasn’t looking forward to the food that much. For some silly reason, I thought Polish food wouldn’t be that exciting. I was so, so wrong. Out of all the places I’ve visited, I think Poland has the best food. Or …
  20. Cherry Cheesecake Cupcakes Recipe
    • Cherry Cheesecake Cupcakes Photo
    • What is it about us that makes us try to “recruit” people into whatever new thing we are in to? I had to stop hanging out with people who are hardcore exercisers. Because look – I don’t care if it’s Crossfit or marathon running or yoga or that thing where it’s like ballet – I …
  21. Dairy Free Cheesecake Recipe
    • Dairy Free Cheesecake Photo
    • When my daughter was a toddler, her favorite nut (other than myself) was the mild cashew nut. If I gave her a bowl of cashews and berries, she was one happy camper! Back then, I had no clue that cashews came from cashew apples! Actually, I don’t recall even knowing what a cashew apple was, …
  22. Key Lime Icebox Cheesecake Recipe
    • Key Lime Icebox Cheesecake Photo
    • Key lime icebox cheesecake is perfectly sweet, creamy, and tart. Try to eat just one slice! We are in the midst of some ridiculous heat here in Arkansas, and it’s making me cranky. There are people who function well in heat and I am not one of them. I am actually the exact opposite. My …
  23. Cherry Cheesecake Bars Recipe
    • Cherry Cheesecake Bars Photo
    • I have recently discovered that there is nothing more terrifying than a sleep deprived toddler. Literally nothing. My normally calm, agreeable daughter turns into a demon when she’s running on very little sleep. Like she came straight out of The Exorcist – screaming, red faced, with snot streaming from her nose. Seeing her like that …
  24. Peanut Butter & Jelly Swirl Cheesecake Bars Recipe
    • Peanut Butter & Jelly Swirl Cheesecake Bars Photo
    • Creamy and rich peanut butter cheesecake is swirled with strawberry jam, over a brown sugar and oat crust. Your childhood favorite sandwich combo is transformed into a decadent dessert! There are not many things that peanut butter doesn’t go with, and let’s face it, even if it does clash with certain flavors, I’d probably still eat it anyway. …
  25. Mini Margarita Cheesecakes Recipe
    • Mini Margarita Cheesecakes Photo
    • When it comes to the Super Bowl, there are two types of viewers – those who watch the game and those who watch the commercials. For me it depends on who’s playing. If it’s the Pittsburgh Steelers, then it’s about the game. However, if they’re not, then I’m in a third category – those who …
  26. Red Velvet Oreo Cheesecakes Recipe
    • Red Velvet Oreo Cheesecakes Photo
    • I kind of consider myself an Oreo cookie connoisseur. And I may or may not make a special trip to the store when a new limited edition flavor is released. Sometimes I’m even lucky enough to get a preview of the new flavors a couple of weeks early. Blogging does have its perks, folks! Although I think …
  27. German Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe
    • German Chocolate Cheesecake Photo
    • I decided I’m going to start a fan club – the “I Love German Chocolate Cake Everything” fan club. Based on recipes I’ve made in the past, I’m on a mission to make German chocolate everything. So far I have pecan pie, cheese ball, cupcakes, sandwich cookies, a mini cake, and (my personal favorite) ice cream. Of course being the cheesecake fanatic …
  28. Paloma Cheesecake Shots Recipe
    • Paloma Cheesecake Shots Photo
    • Can I share a secret with you? Okay, deep breath, here it goes. I didn’t have my first bite of cheesecake until my mid-twenties. Do you still love me? Did I lose my food blogger card just now? I’m always a little ashamed to admit that truth, especially because my mom is one of the best cheesecake …
  29. Chocolate Stout Cheesecake Recipe
    • Chocolate Stout Cheesecake Photo
    • With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, it’s time to break out the Guinness. Guinness is often associated with Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day because it’s made in Dublin, although you certainly don’t need to wait for March every year to enjoy a pint. In addition to drinking it, I love baking with beer, especially chocolate and stout together …
  30. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars Recipe
    • Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars Photo
    • If you’ve been reading My Baking Addiction for any length of time, you’re probably well aware of the fact that I’m mildly obsessed with cheesecake – in any form. From No Bake S’mores Cheesecake and Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake to Cherry Cheesecake Cookies, cheesecake will always be my favorite dessert in all the land. Want to know what else I’m mildly obsessed with? …
  31. White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Recipe
    • White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Photo
    • This recipe is one of several pride and joy recipes for me! I love all the recipes that I share, but I do end up having personal favorites, and ones that I love a teeeeeny bit more than others. I wouldn’t share anything that wasn’t stupendous in the first place. It has to be a …
  32. Chocolate Cheesecake Pudding Dessert Recipe
    • Chocolate Cheesecake Pudding Dessert Photo
    • Summer is the season for layered no-bake desserts, or dessert lasagna as they’re sometimes called. Who am I kidding? We enjoy them all year long with this seasonal Pumpkin Oreo Dessert! The inspiration for this particular recipe, however, is an amazing creation we call “Oreo Cake” that involves vanilla pudding and an Oreo crust. I was …
  33. Lemon Cheesecake Donuts Recipe
    • Lemon Cheesecake Donuts Photo
    • I made us a treat. I married cheesecake and donuts. I thought about putting the cheesecake into the donut batter and making this very tasty pairing happen that way. But… they weren’t cheesecake-ey enough. I also thought about making traditional donuts and filling them with cheesecake. But… when it boils down to it, I kind of hate frying …
