Come get a slice of a good, old-fashioned New York Cheesecake! But, that’s not all… This recipe is a revolutionary dessert post for at350degrees! I’ve teamed up with Brooke, the Sweet Prima Donna, to bring you two amazing cheesecake creations! (Brooke’s fantastic dessert blog features mouthwatering, guilt-free desserts!) I baked a New York Cheesecake, a delectable, classic favorite with a sweet graham cracker crust and creamy cream cheese filling. I don’t typically like cheesecake, but this recipe had me licking my fork! The cream cheese filing is so light and tasty, and a tiny hint of lemon gives the filling an ultimate depth of flavor. I even added some cream cheese frosting to decorate the top! This New York Cheesecake is a must-add to everyone’s recipe collection!! Enjoy!

Chocolate covered strawberries are my go-to dessert for a super simple, delicious, and somewhat healthy treat! I love making these sweet snacks because there’s so much flexibility; you can be creative by using different chocolates, designs, and toppings! Have fun decorating!
Recipe: Melt chocolate of choice (I use chocolate chips, but anything would work) in a heatproof bowl. Thickly spread chocolate onto strawberries. Place chocolate covered strawberries in fridge to harden slightly (about 5 min). Melt second chocolate of choice and scoop into pastry bag. Take out chilled strawberries and decorate them as desired.
***NOTE: Try chocolate-dipping all of your favorite fruits! Also try making chocolate covered graham crackers, cookies, marshmallows, or any other fun treats!
While waiting for the cookies in the Celebration Whoopie Pies to cool, I concocted my very own inventive experiment: mini strawberry shortcakes! I’ve never actually tried a real strawberry shortcake before, but here’s me being a scientist; simply take two cookies, scoop on a heaping spoon of cool whip, add some sliced fresh strawberries and oila! A super easy and delicious guilt-free snack!

Chocolate Covered Katie is quite possibly one my favorite food bloggers. EVER. She bakes healthy and guilt-free vegan desserts that still taste fantastic! I use the non-vegan versions, though, because I think they taste richer and more authentic. Because I absolutely love her baked oatmeals, I decided to try her “Single Lady Cupcakes” for an afternoon snack. Muffins are one of my favorite desserts, and I like blueberry muffins even more, so this recipe was my soulmate! The muffins are fluffy, delicious, and best of all low-cal! Enjoy!
***NOTE: You can put whatever you like in the muffins, or leave them plain. Also, the recipe is designed to make one huge muffin, but I split it up into two medium sized ones instead.
