Normally my photography style is more… Classic? I like to take pictures BEFORE we eat, not after a slice is gone. However, we were too impatient.. OOPS! Haha, I shared a slice for breakfast with my bf, mom and brother. Good start of my birthday!

When you visit my blog more often, you may notice that lately the way I post recipes has changed a bit. Down below you see my ‘old’ way: I used to use the Recipe Card plugin from Yumprint. In other blogs you see my ‘new’ way: I’m now using WP Recipe Maker!

I’ll quickly explain: the old plugin I used was having a lot of issues lately, with the server being down almost all the time. Server down meant I could type my recipe, but not save it… So annoying!

Which is why I decided to use Recipe Card instead. I really like the clean look and overall working method: I’m glad I switched!

So, why do some recipes still have the recipe card template? Well, I started writing this blog over a month ago… 😉 Some recipes are put on the blog within days, and other recipes stay in Drafts a little longer!

Onto the cheesecake part of this blog! This simply perfect pie was made for my birthday, and everybody absolutely loved it. It was the first time I made a cheesecake with condensed milk, but it’s definitely something I’d do more often!

This cheesecake is, in my humble opinion, the best ever because:

  • It’s done in no time
  • It’s highly customizable: add berries, chocolate, more cookies or other fruit if you like
  • The bastogne cookies simply make the best crust
  • The cream cheese and condensed milk together are super creamy, making a melt in your mouth cheesecake
  • Everybody will love it!
