Turtle Cheesecake



Well last week I decided to participate in my new wards Relief Society activity. It was a ward bake off, great I thought to myself I wonder if I pick something up at the store if anyone would notice?!!! I figured they would notice and I might as well attempt something good. So I got a recipe from Greg's mom... Turtle Cheesecake. I had never made a cheesecake and wondered how it would turn out. Greg was a good sport and helped me put it all together the night before. I showed up alone and very intimated! {Believe me I did have my game face on but I was ready to be completely showed up by these house moms with experience!} I will keep the boring details out of the story and get to the most exciting part...I GOT FIRST PLACE! What a surprise to everyone mostly me! It was great! I was so proud of that first place prize. I decided it was so wonderful I would make if for Father's Day since cheesecake is my dads favorite. It was just as good the second time around.

That is so awesome! I love that you really did think to just go and buy a store bought that would have been funny if you did that and then one first place. I'm not surprised it seems like you would be a good cook to me! It looks really yummy too!
