Coffee-Swirl Cheesecake

Coffee and cream is a classic combination – a combination that usually comes in liquid form. Instead of whipping up a hot beverage, I took a cooler route and made a Coffee-Swirl Cheesecake.

Vanilla Caramel Affogato

Vanilla Caramel Affogato

An affogato is a traditional Italian espresso-based dessert. The full name is really “affogato al cafe” or “drowned in coffee,” in Italian. The name really suits the dessert, as it consists of a scoop of ice cream/gelato with a shot of hot espresso poured over the top. I like the classics, so vanilla ice cream or gelato with strong espresso is always my default affogato, ... Read More »
