Happy National Cheesecake Day!

Blogger of the Day: Lesley at The Purple Carrot (formerly Lesley Lifting Life)

One of my best friends has a birthday this week so I'm bringing her a yumful surprise...cheesecake! Lesley's recipe is slambam easy and extraspeedy...just about an hour in the freezer. Go with her Cheezecake Bites if you need an even quicker hit of cheesecake bliss. ;)

When she's not devising delicious eats, Lesley devotes herself to new precious projects, touring the country to research Neapolitan pizza, and helping out in her husband's pizza restaurant il Lazzarone. They serve authentic Neapolitan pizza adhering to strict culinary standards, including a veganfriendly marinara version...yumza!  :)

If you had to choose...strawberry or cherry cheesecake? Raw or baked? Favorite pizza restaurant? What's the best birthday surprise you ever had?  ;)

  1. Lovely blog, this; thanks. I would always choose strawberry cheesecake over cherry, but my favourite is blackcurrant. I am going to invent some blackcurrant cheesecake ice cream some time this week ;) I don't have a favorite pizza restaurant unfortunately, as there are no vegan ones. There is a pure veg takeaway called Mr Singh's though, which has vegan options but I've not tried it yet. Surprisingly, the UK seems to be one of the hardest countries to eat out vegan in.

  2. Happy Birthday to your best friend, wishing her a fabulous day with lots of cheesecakes. I love any type of cheesecake!
