This is my entry to the Hotpoint family baking competition



This is my entry to the Hotpoint family baking competition

I found the recipe for this triple chocolate cheesecake last year while searching for a Thanksgiving dessert to make. My first attempt was a disaster! I took the spring-form pan off before it had cooled all the way. Cheesecake oozed all over my kitchen counter!! I managed to scrape it into a bowl and salvaged it by making it into a trifle with peanut butter, chocolate shavings, and whipped cream.
This was my 2nd attempt and this time my daughter helped out. We patiently waited for it to cool and it turned out beautifully. Ta da! It was soooo yummy...

I need a fashion overhaul



Since my recent pregnancy and the birth of our newest sweetie-pie, and subsequent weight gains/losses, my wardrobe is a mess! I recently got rid of everything that was too old, too big, or too small, and all the stuff I'd never really wear again. What used to take up the whole closet is down to just a handful of outfits. Very sad! So I'm entering to win $100 to spend at Karen Kane http://www.motherhoodthetruth.com/2012/01/karen-kane
