I love baking this time of year. I’m such a geek :) Last night I started experimenting with making pumpkin cheesecake–because I’ve never cared for pumpkin pie I’ve never even made one of those. But last year, Nicholas tried a sample of pumpkin cheesecake at a store while we were shopping, and he fell in love with it. And he asks for it all year long.

Happy Thursday!!
