Celebrate National Cheesecake Day With These Sensational Recipes

 July 30th is National Cheesecake Day! What better way to celebrate than by making a cheesecake? I mean, if you love cheesecake, what can be more soothing to the soul, tummy-filling and sociable than eating a piece of cheesecake? This is just one of the reasons why so many people love cheesecake – it’s a comfort food.

Get creative – after all that is what cooking is all about!

The first documented cheesecake was served at an Olympic game in the seventh century in Greece. It then spread to other European countries and eventually made its way to North America when immigrants crossed the ocean. Little did they know that the recipe they brought with them would eventually launch a huge following of people who love cheesecake and would balloon into a multimillion-dollar industry across the world.

The decadent taste and texture of cheesecake belies the fact that it is fairly simple to make. Cheesecake lovers know that they can have this delightful delicacy anytime they want by stirring up a few basic ingredients including cream cheese, sugar and eggs, and then pouring it into a pie shell which can be made of graham cracker crumbs or other conventional pie crusts and baked. So what’s not to love about cheesecake? It can be eaten anytime of the day or night, it’s easy to make and even easier to buy, it tastes divine, and on top of all this, it creates a feeling of well being that only comes from being good to yourself.
