Brownie Bottomed Swirled Cheesecake Bars: You won’t believe they’re sugar free!

We spent a long weekend in Vermont, which first meant a road trip with Marley, Lexi, and Beenie! For those who do not know, Marley is my new rescue puppy, Lexi is a rescued cat, and Beenie is a rescued bunny 🙂 . Suffice to say, it was a packed car!  Vermont was a relaxing few days; we stayed in a beautiful house with architectural details that never-ended (like a rainforest bathroom – where the entire bathroom is the shower, complete with a waterfall).  On our drive home back to the heart of the Catskill Mountains, I exclaimed, even though Vermont was gorgeous, it does not beat coming home!  We camped out at a Wilderness Area just 7 minutes from the house and enjoyed watching the sunrise over the lake.  The reason for this background story? Well, as I was away & couldn’t be baking, I HAD to make some goodies for the trip: enter these brownie bottomed cheesecake bars with strawberry & chocolate swirls!  It’s a good thing these were packed away in the back of the car, otherwise I’d have eaten them all on the drive.  That’s not unheard of…while waiting in the car when we were driving to our camping location, I ate a box of cookies.  Yes, in the long 7-minute drive I couldn’t control myself.  Oy vey!post1 post3 post2post4Lexi & Marley had to check out the rainforest shower with me! post7 post9 post10 post5 post6I think someone was tired out over her long-weekend…. 😉 Continue reading

Apple season is in full swing here in the Hudson Valley of New York!  I thought I’d make apple fritters two ways: baked & fried, and why not use some hard cider in the batter to emphasize the delicious apple flavor?!  I’m warning you now, the caramel dipping sauce is addictive!!  Continue reading
