I am so excited to have Shelby from Go Eat and Repeat visiting my blog today! Her blog is filled with all sorts of sweet treats, and delicious meals. Today she is sharing a recipe that even I can’t wait to make in my own kitchen. I will let her take it away from here!
Hello all! Shelby here from Go Eat and Repeat! I’m a fellow food blogger who is obsessed with sugar, fresh cut flowers, and golden retrievers. I’m super excited today that I get to guest post on Marsha’s lovely blog! Isn’t her site awesome?!
We started our blogs around similar times and have been following each other closely for months. It is so fun to get to see how we grow and change as we near our 1 year blogiversaries!
So to celebrate, I have a real treat to share today. A Caramel Pecan Cheesecake. I mean, come on, how could you say no to that?
Caramel Pecan Cheesecake
I can’t even take full credit for the idea because it truly came from my boyfriend. One night as my boyfriend (Matt) and I were eating dinner, he turned to me and asked if I could make a cheesecake for my blog. But not just any cheesecake. A caramel and pecan cheesecake, he said.
Never one to turn down a challenge, or a cheesecake for that matter, I immediately started brainstorming how I wanted this masterpiece to go.
The result? Delicious.
Now I will say it does take a little while to put together, but it is totally worth it. The cheesecake is super moist, rich and amazingly decadent. With the tang of the Greek yogurt, it pairs perfectly with the deep and rich caramel sauce. Finally, toasted pecans add a nice crunch and toastiness to this perfect cake.
As soon as Matt got home from work he scoured the fridge looking for the cheesecake, only for me to tell him he had to wait until after he ate his lunch to have some. (Little does he know I snuck a sliver or two myself while photographing it…)
Once he did get some, however, he loved it! He cleared off his plate in record time! It was a big hit with Matt and I hope it is with you too!
Happy Cooking and thanks for having me!
