Cake Batter Mini Cheesecake Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

Check out our funfetti cheesecake recipe perfect for spring!

I love cake batter anything -- cake, cookies, milkshakes... The flavors remind me of birthday parties when I was a kid. Plus I think they look so colorful and festive.

So when we were coming up with an idea for a fun spring dessert using Philadelphia Cream Cheese, I immediately thought... cake batter cheesecake!! Plus, we just got this new mini cheesecake pan that I read good reviews about, and I couldn't wait to try it out.

Coconut Blueberry Bar Recipe

Healthy Coconut Blueberry Bar Recipe |

My daughter is a very picky eater. Getting her to eat healthy can be a challenge. So when we were asked by PAM to come up with a healthy and seasonal dish, I decided to focus on blueberries. Not only are they a super food and taste so good in spring, they are also my daughter's favorite berry. Here is my delicious coconut blueberry bar recipe, perfect for the picky eater.

What makes these blueberry bars so successful is the blending of flavors. There's nuttiness and a touch of saltiness from the almond flour in the crust, tartness and fruitiness from the blueberries (with no added sugar), sweetness from the crumble, and crunch from the sprinkled toasted coconut slices.

Crustless Bacon Spinach Cream Cheese Quiche Recipe

Crustless cream cheese quiche recipe, low carb with spinach and bacon |

With Easter coming up, we were asked by Philadelphia Cream Cheese to create a recipe that would be easy to serve at Easter brunch. So enter my... crustless bacon spinach cream cheese quiche recipe. I know, what a title!

I made the quiche crustless by serving it in individual ceramic tart dishes. I thought I would miss the crust, but the quiche is so light and fluffy and flavorful, I honestly didn't.

Easy Chocolate Banana Brownie Recipe |

My daughter loves to bake and has been baking with me since she was a toddler. It's one of our favorite activities to do together, especially on a rainy day (hence the slightly darker photos). But let's face it, cooking with kids, is a messy proposition.

So when we were asked by Bounty to help introduce their new Bounty with Dawn Paper Towels, I couldn't think of a better way, than to start baking with Lainey! Enter our delicious and easy chocolate banana brownie recipe.
