Golden Girl-ee Cheesecake

"I laughed at the Golden Girls when they faced their conundrum, over a cheesecake and this is the cheesecake to end all cheesecakes, not to mention conundrums! Simple to make and really to die for.. Thanks to a cousin and his part-time job in a local deli, this secret recipe, sold by the slice, is truly worth its weight in gold. So, thank you David, and everyone enjoy!"

I'm a "newbee" to this site, but not to cooking. I love great food and to share recipes and this site is great! I don't know where the information of a "fry cook" came from, but I would consider myself anything else but that :) A NYC girl originally, lived in London and Canada where I am now. Met lots of interesting people along life's way who taught me a great deal and enriched my life with their knowledge of cooking. With my children now adults, the family has doubled in size and my commitment to making memories to pass down to another generation inspires me to cooking. I find cooking a creative expression of one's personality and never tire of new challenges in the kitchen.
