Guess who’s birthday it is today???? It is my sweet Nelly’s birthday, WOO HOO!!!!! Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you!!!!
Nelly, Nelly, can you believe we met just over two years ago? I feel like I have known you FOREVER. You truly are one of my dearest, and closest friends. The day we finally meet in person…..OH MAN girl, expect the BIGGEST hug EVER!!!! I didn’t put any candles on your cake, but I did have a shot of brandy for you (you know how I like my booze!) Cheers, my friend 🙂
Nelly has a love for life, lives to laugh, adores baking, craves coffee, needs a turtle for a pet ASAP, and is extremely addicted to bananas! Her love for bananas is so strong, her favorite color is yellow!!! Soooooo, she had to have a cake for her special day, and well a banana cheesecake seemed appropriate! Only the best for my dear friend!
About a year ago I made cheesecake for the first time, peppermint hot chocolate cheesecake, I am not sure why it took me so long to make a homemade cheesecake, they are sooooo delicious! Most cheesecakes only have cream cheese of course, BUT since I am a Chobani Greek Yogurt addict, mine also contains some creamy dreamy Greek yogurt.
Whenever I go to The Cheesecake Factory, the only cheesecake I can see on the menu….banana cream pie cheesecake! I know there are others probably on that menu, but the only one that has my heart is the banana cream pie. Now that I have made my own version at home….well my waist line may hate me a little more….BUT since we only live once, let’s celebrate a VERY special day!!!!
