Oh my gosh guys this pumpkin cheesecake is just to-die-for!  It’s soo creamy and has a hint of maple, vanilla, cinnamon, and a dash of the very necessary, for this pumpkin cheesecake, allspice.  The hint of allspice is barely noticeable but if it was left out it would taste more like a vanilla maple cheesecake than pumpkin cheesecake.  It gives it just the right zing without being overly spicy.  This recipe is not as spicy as pumpkin pie or bread and more on the maple vanilla side.  To try this pumpkin cheesecake recipe is to fall in love with it.  Read more

This stollen recipe is an authentic German recipe passed down from my grandmother.  It is called quarkstollen in Germany.  It’s moist and very shelf stable (it does not dry out like a yeast stollen at all).  This recipe features quark, a German farmers cheese.  You can make quark or use substitutes such as cream cheese, ricotta, mascarpone, or crème fraiche.  You can also blend cream cheese and ricotta.  Another benefit of this recipe is that it is fast to make since you use baking powder instead of yeast.  My family always preferred this version for it’s moistness and simplicity to make, a plus when it gets eaten up too quickly like it does in our house!
