Rich & Delicious

Here’s wishing you a loving holiday weekend. Whether you observe Passover, Easter, the Solstice—or simply the coming of spring—may your days be filled with joy and renewal.

I had intended to get this recipe to you a bit sooner, but hopefully there’s still time to include it in your holiday menus. This Classic Vanilla Cheesecake by Melissa Clark is made in an Instant Pot. I’ll admit that I was hesitant to purchase one of these devices but I’m so glad I did—this cheesecake is a revelation. While the crust is baked in a traditional oven ahead of time, the filled cake is essentially steamed, creating a moist, rich and delicious dessert. Serve it on its own, or accompanied by seasonal fresh fruit.

I look forward to seeing you in my kitchen, gathering flavors, soon.
