So 2013 is here. For reals.

I have been writing 2012 on my bank deposits, checks, bills… Few of these companies have called me back to make the necessary corrections…

Today, us, old calendar peoples, are celebrating the arrival of the New Year. I think as of today I will be able to jot down the correct date – it always takes me about two weeks to get used to the number-change.

Also, as of today, I will feel that much more pressure to make some personal changes. I need something new, you know? Anything. But, I have a love and hate relationship with change; I love to find out the unknown, but hate not knowing the unknown. Make sense? As soon as I figure out the changes that I want to make, I will let you know.

However, looks like there’s one thing I won’t be changing; my love for desserts. That was a conscious decision. It always is.

Wishing I had a piece of this cheesecake to celebrate that decision…

I made this Banana Foster Cheesecake for a get-together with my aunt’s family. They dubbed me as the cheesecake dessert queen. I simply dub me as just the dessert fiend. Give me cake or give me death!

This was one of those, let me throw my favorite things together, banana foster sauce and cheesecake, and hope for a positive outcome. I do that quite often – most of the time it works, but there are those times that it doesn’t. Cranberry white hot chocolate anyone? Ewwwww! I really need to forget about that experience.

There are a couple of variations to this dessert: You may want to go ahead with the layer of pudding, or not. That is your decision. Also, you may or may not want to fold in 1/2 cup of banana foster into the cream cheese mixture. Again, that’s up to you. For a prettier presentation, serve the banana foster on top of the frozen cheesecake slice. It’s mahvelous
