What, you made your own birthday cake?? That’s not fair.
I <3 What’s Cooking too, but it seems to hate me. I sign up, I get like 2 magazines, and then they just disappear. Then I sign up again, get a couple more, then they stop coming again. Lather, rinse, repeat.
It went down kinda like this:
“Hey Stuart, would you mind if I made my own Birthday Cake this year?”
Stuart: “Um, I guess not, why, what are you making?”
Stuart: “Nuff Said”
He knows better than to mess with a girl and her cheesecake! lol
I came upon your website by “accident” looking for a recipe and was amused by it as it is oddly similar to mine… I have recipes also and a blog that has the same “look” as this website.
Keep up the nice work!
You realy can’t mess w/ a girl and her cheesecake. I made my twins a mango panda bear cheesecake for their birthday last year. There should be more cheesecakes for birthdays. yummy
First of all, great article! I’ve got a small question bothering me, I really enjoy the design of your blog and tried to download the same theme on my Worpdress site. Anyhow, there is some kind of strange php error in the sidebar. Do you have any hints, what settings are you using? Please PM me on Twitter @FitTipz or via e-mail.
