“The Cheesecake that started it all! When Vanessa Sherwood posted her White Chocolate-Strawberry Cheesecake on the forum she got everybody salivating and obsessing over cheesecakes, begging for more! This beautiful pink and red creamy sweetness is light on the nuts and fat and as fresh and healthy as can get with cheesecake, and still be rich and delicious.” – Indulge
