Cheesecake and the Last Week of the Blog Tour!

Whew, Thanksgiving has been here and gone. I still can’t get over the fact that it is nearly December, but I guess there really isn’t any disputing that fact. So I thought I’d share the sweetest thing about our Thanksgiving dinner: the dessert, of course. We had the New York- Style Cheesecake from American Vegan Kitchen. Because I rarely make something the same way twice unless it is for a book, I had to tinker with it. I reduced the flour and milk both by about half, and added 1/2 cup of sour cream. I also used reduced the crust to 1 cup of crumbs. The baking time  had to be increased slightly, too. I was happy with the outcome and so was my omni family. Win!

If you’ve been following along, the blog book tour is wrapping up this week. I’m going to post all the links below. Again, Celine and I can’t thank all of you enough for your support of Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day! It was our first opportunity to work together, and it was a wonderful experience. It was also my first book on Fair Winds Press. It’s been a pleasure to work with the team there. In so many ways, Vegan Sandwiches has been a dream book.

Enough from me! Please visit these fantastic bloggers who graciously took part in our blog tour. Help us show them some love! Remember, there is one more week to go so be sure to stick with us until the end!

    Wow that cheesecake looks good! So those are all the changes you made to the original recipe? If so, I’ll have to add a little sticky to the recipe in my copy.

    Yes, those are the changes I made. I’m not sure if I like it better, but it was fun to play with it again. :) I feel some new cheesecake recipes coming on.

    Cheesecake looks marvy….I think it’s time for a Philly Cheesecake Sandwich–the ultimate dessert decadence. I’ll leave it to you guys! 😉

    I agree with Maggie and urban.. that is a great looking cheesecake. Now you’ve got me thinking of grabbing my AVK.

    The blog tour was so much fun! I loved reading the other reviewer’s posts. Thanks, Tami!
