Happy Mardi Gras!
I’m not Catholic, but am generally surrounded by them, so I keep up with the spirit of it all. I think I’m a sympathetic Lent-er. I had quite a full weekend, what with Valentine’s day and Chinese New Year’s coinciding on the 14th, so I’ve had my fill of delectable treats and am ready to go on another one of my self-imposed sweet treat fasts. Well, sort of. I just find that around the holidays, I tend to become a sugar-craving madwoman and I really dislike that feeling. When I suddenly start craving candy for no reason, I know I’ve had too much sugar in my system and the time is ripe for a break from the Sweetsville. So, adieu cookies and cakes.
Valentine’s cheesecake (my first perfect, no-cracks cheesecake!), you provided a wonderful farewell.
