Cheesecake: A dessert from heaven

July 31, 2014 - Brett Van Waus
I participated in festivities for a very important, nationally recognized day Wednesday.

I had a slice of cheesecake on National Cheesecake Day, July 30.

Cheesecake is one my favorite desserts. I love the cool, creamy texture. There are hundreds of different kinds to make or try.

The first time I had cheesecake was when my boyfriend and I went on a date to the Cheesecake Factory in West Des Moines about six months ago.

I tried a slice of Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake.

It was love at first bite.

After that we made it our goal to try every slice of cheesecake on the menu, there are dozens of options.

Between the two of us we’ve tried about a dozen so far, my favorite is still the Godiva Chocolate cheesecake.

The Cheesecake Factory offered a half-price slices in honor of the special day. So naturally, we made the trip to take advantage of the deal.

I savored every bite of the banana cream cheesecake, a new favorite of mine.

If you haven’t had yourself a slice of cheesecake in honor of cheesecake day, I recommend you do. I mean, cheesecake is so delicious, any day you could celebrate National Cheesecake Day.
