Caramel Apple Cheesecake – THE BEST FOOD RECIPE

1 min read

Cheesecake – my first true love when it comes to dessert. The very first one I learned how to make, the first dessert I made for my Hubby and the one I always make for special occasions. Like holidays. This past weekend, we celebrated our Annual Family Day. It’s a tradition we started right after my Hubby and I got married. We kept at it every year, making a big dinner and doing activities. It’s always the first Sunday of October. 

Now that we have three children, it feels like we are a big family and everyone can participate which makes for a lot of fun! Pumpkins are carved, Thanksgiving and Halloween decorations are hung and placed and a big dinner is served. It is a kick off to the holiday season. It let’s us focus on our family and doing things together. We tend to get distracted by meetings and get-togethers for Thanksgiving or Christmas so this holiday is just for us. Just being together with our kids. Being a family.

Through out this week, I will be sharing all of the dishes we had on our special holiday. But let’s start with the dessert. 🙂 Because, why not?
