Last weekend was the last weekend of the Winter Olympics 2014. We’ve got to be saddened by Team USA’s defeat in hockey on Saturday and then we’ve got treated to an excellent win by Team Canada on Sunday. All in all, we were very happy with our country’s performance and we celebrated by eating some sugar busting chocolate chip cheese cake.
This chocolate chip cheesecake marks the start of something we were looking forward to doing here at Smell My Kitchen: featuring guests recipes for all the world to enjoy.
Véronique made us the honor with this dessert recipe.
We’ve had this chocolate chip cheesecake a few time over the past few weeks with her and it has always been delicious. Prepared to perfection, it could be featured in any high-class restaurant.
Even Nate the difficult loved it! He actually asked for a second piece.
