Announcing the Cheesecake Haven Blog

Hello all. I know I don't post here very often any more, but I have exciting news. My wife and I have recently become part owners of a cafe, and we will be serving my cheesecake! I'm very excited about this opportunity and started a blog to document and share my experiences (an hopefully get a movie or Food Network spot of course!) Please check it out:

Cheesecake Haven

It is pretty rough, as I haven't had a chance to polish it yet, but I'm happy to get feedback, positive or negative (as long as it's constructive!)

First thing you need to do is send me some cheesecake (Raspberry please) - then I'll take a look.

Re: Announcing the Cheesecake Haven Blog

Well, The Haven failed. Actually it failed back in February. I have really been enjoying the weekends that it freed up too. It sucks that we spent so much time and money on a place that eventually went under, but in the end I think we are better for it. We have learned that we didn't like having partners, and these ones were not great. Anyway, to the topic at hand. I let the blog die even before the Haven did, and it was mainly because I was spending so much time there, that I didn't want to then write about it in my spare time. Well, I have spare time again, and the holidays are coming up, so I'll be making more cheesecakes. I decided to revive the blog and post my individual cheesecake experiences. I've added a couple of posts about the time between The Haven's failure and now, and I re-dubbed it as Chad's Cheesecakes. It can be found at: http://chadscheesecakes.blogspot.com/

I hope you enjoy!

Re: Announcing the Cheesecake Haven Blog

so....you uh, and wow.....cheesecakes huh?

A whole blog about...cheesecakes. I actually don't care about cheesecakes until I'm eating a cheesecake. Until then, these cakes of cheese are simply words, words of which I care little of.

So unless your sending out free cheesecakes.....NO DEAL!!!!

But if you are sending out free cheesecakes then I am riveted and wish to subscribe to your newsletter!

Re: Announcing the Cheesecake Haven Blog

It was a very interesting read for me. Makes me wish I could try your cheesecakes. Didn't realize all the intricacies that go into baking one. Any chance you could send me a Chocolate Truffle cheesecake?

BTW, when I lived in NY there is a bakery in Brooklyn called Junior's that is famous for their cheesecakes. It was quite expensive too if I recall correctly. The thing that really surprised me when I bought one the was how heavy it was (weight) compared to the store bought ones. I was told that was one of the indicators that you are getting a quality cheesecake.

Sorry the venture didn't work out. The food business is tough.

I certainly didn't expect a thread on cheesecake to turn like it has. Anxiously awaiting the return of C-Mart...

I'm sure he's on a trip paid for by the taxpayers money.

That's what happens when you get wrapped up in the cheesecake game.

Then again, it's hard to turn away from Dirty Cheesecake money.

who can blame him or his...associates.
