If you love sweets as much as we do it can be difficult to choose just one dessert to try! This weekend we served a trio of our most popular cheesecakes to give the guests a variety of different flavors. We artfully plated three mini cheesecakes- banana foster, citrus and dark chocolate for their pleasure. Try this new york style cheesecake recipe at home or for your next party!
