Key Lime Pie Cheesecake

"I found this recipe on the internet and have to say it is divine. I use Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Juice to save time and I like to add a little more zest than what is called for in the recipe. Sometimes a crack will develop and I really don't know what to do to prevent it. I've tried every suggestion and sometimes it just cracks, but at least the flavor won't be affected. The cooking time includes chilling."

Living in the south we are very lucky to have an abundance of fresh seafood and other ingredients at our disposal when trying new recipes. My husband and I both love to cook and have learned a lot about cooking from our native Louisianian, Paul Prudhomme (we learned to be very careful with his recipes as they are very spicy - even for us), native New Orleanian, Frank Davis and transplanted Emeril Lagasse. It would be very difficult to pick an all time favorite cookbook since I have approximately 200. I enjoy collecting local cookbooks as well as others from different areas. This picture is obviously when DH and I got married. I cooked all the food and even made my wedding cake.
