If you have read my posts about food you know that I love to cook from scratch, but i love a good cheat too, and that's where Bisquick comes in. I can make pretty much any meal on short notice if I have a box of Bisquick.
Last week my cousin came over for a visit and I wanted to have something yummy to eat but had a pretty awful night (first tooth!) so I needed something quick and easy, so I made these guys which were like two bite brownies.
To celebrate Canada Day I asked my twitter followers what truly Canadian dish they'd like to see and "Maple Anything" was the winner. When I told my hubby about this he suggested Maple Bacon Cheesecake, and since I like maple, bacon and cheesecake I thought it was a great idea.
This is actually pretty easy to make, just takes a little time because you have to bake the bacon at a really high temperature so you can't do the cheesecake at the same time.
Top your maple cheesecake with the maple bacon and enjoy!

This week my husband and I celebrated four years of marriage and seven years of being together. It was so nice to take a quiet moment and think about our time together.
What better way to reflect than with a bottle of our favourite champagne and Skor Cheesecake. You may not know, but "Skor Cheesecake" were the first words I exchanged with my husband, so the dessert holds a special place in our hearts.
I normally make a baked cheesecake that you can also read about here, but since it was summer I wanted to do something that was a little cooler and felt almost like ice cream. This is super easy and if you're making it for a group you can double the recipe and make it ahead of time.
* I used two 5 inch dishes for ours, but you could easily double the recipe and use a spring form pan*
To remove from a non-springform pan: warm a butter knife under hot water and slowly work your way around the edges. Then put a plate on the top and flip it over, give the bottom of your dish a good pat so that the cake falls out, then remove the dish and place another plate on the bottom on your cake. Flip right side over and voila!

I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
