Cheesecakes & Cheesecake Concoctions

Cheesecake is a sweet dessert consisting of one or more layers. The main, and thickest layer, consists of a mixture of soft, fresh cheese (typically cream cheese or ricotta), eggs, and sugar; if there is a bottom layer it often consists of a crust or base made from crushed cookies or graham crackers. It may be baked or unbaked. Cheesecake may be flavored or topped with fruit, whipped cream, nuts, cookies, fruit sauce, or chocolate syrup. Wikipedia

Brownies & Bars

Dessert bars, or simply bars or squares, are a type of American bar cookie that has the texture of a firm Cake or softer than usual cookie. They are prepared in a pan and then baked in the oven. They are cut into squares or rectangles. They are staples of bake sales and are often made for birthdays. They are especially popular during the holidays, but many people eat them all year.

Apricot Tart

I can’t tell you how excited I was to see apricots at the store last week. While they may not be my all time favorite to die for fruit, I was like, “Well, hello old friend!” Seriously, I spotted a lady carrying some to her cart and went back to produce to find them.

Instant Pot Chicken Tinga, Mexican Style Shredded Chicken

Hey, I’m a planner but this still happens to me! It’s 4:30 and I open the fridge to make dinner and *duh* I forgot to take out the chicken to thaw. The ravenous octogenarians (my folks, or maybe for you, it’s your kids; I’ve been there, too…) and are emitting hangry noises, circling like sharks ready for the kill.
