The authors with my publisher, Secret Cravings Publishing are holding a Just Desserts Blog Hop this weekend. On each of their own blogs, you will find information about their books and many will be sharing a delicious dessert recipe. You can also find so many giveaways. Check out the Secret Cravings Publishing Blog for a complete list of participants.
I really think my current release. "A Kitchen Affair" fits this blog hop better than any other hop I've participated in. The heroine is a personal chef and she prepares scrumptious dishes throughout the book. If you've followed me on my guest appearances on other blogs, you've see some of my recipes already. However, I have left my best and favorite recipe for this posting. It's the first dessert that Jenny serves to Derek in the book and is probably responsible for winning him over from the start. At the bottom of this post, you can see how to enter my giveaway for a .pdf copy of "A Kitchen Affair."
1 3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs
1/3 c. melted butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 8-oz pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 t. vanilla
3 Heath Candy Bars
1 c. sour cream
1 c. powdered sugar
Crust: Mix together graham cracker crumbs, butter and 1/4 c. sugar. Press into a 9-inch springform pan and set aside.
Filling: With an electric mixer, beat together cream cheese, 1 1/4 c. sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time. Mix well and pour over crust. Top with Heath Bars that have been chopped into pieces. Back at 350° f for 60-70 minutes. Served cooled. Option: after cheesecake has cooled, it may be topped with mixture of sour cream and powdered sugar.
Now for the giveaway. Leave a comment in this post telling me what your favorite dessert is and you'll be entered. Make sure you include your email address so I can contact you. I'll announce the winner here on Monday. Thanks and don't forget to visit the other blogs in the Hop.
