Cheesecake. Mmmm. CHEESECAKE :D Anyone else loves this dessert? I for one, loves a good piece of cheesecake but it always leaves me feeling bloated and gassy.. And get a sugar crash afterwards! So is this deliciousness worth the aftermath? Not so much.. One thing you need to know about me is that I LOOOOOOOVE baking and coming up with healthier version of recipes. I have been trying to perfect a dairy and gluten free cheese cake and it is AMAZING! I hope you Enjoy :)
