For all the time and effort that went into my Cheesecake of Shame - it lost to peanut butter cookies, something mint and a pumpkin something or other. I think the judges had their heads up their fifth point of contact. Bitter...me...noooo...never.
Ok, I feel better now. I acted all of 4 years old yesterday, but I eventually got over myself. That 1/2 a bottle of wine didn't hurt anything either. Kidding. I did get a couple of really positive comments today from people who thought I was robbed of the win. Of course it was a 21 year old who said she could feel herself getting woozy from the Irish Cream, so I'm not sure how to take that. :) Ego...it's not a good thing AT ALL. I learned to be happy with the fact that there was only one slice left and I thoroughly enjoyed eating a slice myself, so...all better now.
Can't help but share the recipe, so I hope you'll try it sometime and let me know what you think. Now to finish off the other 1/2 of that bottle....
I lied. I can't find the recipe lying around anywhere. Hold on...let me go look.
