Did someone say - PINK!


When I found this Starbucks coffee mug today at Goodwill, it instantly became my #1 favorite mug. Ringing up at $1.06 didn't hurt matters either.

So I thought I would share a recipe for a wonderfully delicious cheesecake pie that goes so well with coffee, Hot chocolate or hot tea.

Brownie Swirl Cheesecake
1 pkg brownie mix (I used Dark Chocolate)
2 pkgs (8oz ea) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
Whipping cream, whipped with 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
mini chocolate chips

Prepare brownie mix according to directions on box, for chewy brownies. Spread into a greased 9 inch springform pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes (brownies will NOT be done). Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Pour over the brownie crust. Using knife, run through both layers to gently mix them and bring some of the brownie up to the top--- bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, til center is almost set--- loosen sides by running a knife along edge--- remove sides of pan-- cool completely for at least 3 hours--- garnish with whipped cream and mini chocolate chips---- 8-10 servings Enjoy!!!

(I would love to share a picture of this Cheesecake, but unfortunately it disappears right before my eyes :-)

What a cute blog background - oh how I want to learn how to do that! And what a cute mug. It must be teapots, cups and mugs today on Beverly's Pink Saturday. Of course, I've only been to 2 places and chose the teapot and mug. But I think I saw more . . . That's funny - it disappears before your very eyes! Got it. mmmm. Sounds good. Thanks and Happy Pink Saturday, Jenn

I love the mug! I have a Starbucks mug that my kids got me a few years ago, and it's still my favorite. I think I wouldn't enjoy my coffee as much if it broke. :) And the brownie cheesecake...yum!
