Well… have you missed us?

We’ve taken a bit of a hiatus over the past few months from blogging for some very good reasons! A lot has happened during 2014, almost all of it unexpected.

There have been some difficult things that happened in our family such as major health issues, hospitalizations, and job loss. But on the bright side, there have been some wonderful events that have occurred as well! New job opportunities, health recoveries, and most exciting of all, BABIES!

Though I’m not expecting at the moment, there have been some new additions in our extended family AND some new additions on the way! We couldn’t be more thrilled!

Anyway, we apologize for our absence, but we all know that “life happens” for better or worse. But we praise God through the highs AND lows, and thank Him for bringing us through all of it! I can’t make any promises on how often we’ll be posting on the blog over the next couple of months, BUT we hope to be bringing you some more delicious recipes soon!

Today’s recipe is the cheesecake I made for Herb’s birthday this year. He is a cheesecake fanatic! Cheesecake has always been a little intimidating for me, but this one was super easy AND extremely delicious. So if you are also a cheesecake novice, this is a great beginner recipe to get you started.
