Be. Still. My. Heart. Just look at this cheesecake. Just look at how thick the ganache on top is. It’s. just. so. gorgeous. And sinful. And decadent. And in honor of St. Patty’s day the cheesecake itself is loaded with Bailey’s Irish Cream. It doesn’t get much better than this.
When I was texting a friend this week asking her if they were going to come over for a St. Patty’s day dinner, my phone auto-corrected it to St. Party’s day. Fitting.

Now a days, St. Patty’s day isn’t as much of a going out kind of a holiday for us. Instead we stay at home. Instead of greasy bar food we eat scrumptious colcannon.

I don’t know about you, but I think our new way of celebrating is much more fun and not to mention way more delicious.
Please note that you'll need to plan ahead when making this cheesecake as it needs to chill overnight and then for another hour once the ganache has been poured on. Enjoy!

Aside from tomatoes and basil. One must always have tomatoes and basil in a summer garden. This summer, in [...]
