A little Cheesecake for the Ladies...


THIS POST FIRST APPEARED ON JULY 30, 2014. ENJOY!!

I was so happy when I heard that

It gives me a chance to show you THIS:
Before I tell you where this cheesecake came from, allow me to say that I was:

 IN NO WAY contacted to post about this, nor was I paid. I absolutely ADORE the cheesecake from:

that I wanted to give them a shout out today!

I have always LOVED cheesecake (as evidenced by my insanely girlish figure which I know you are all sooo jealous of!). I prefer virgin cheesecake. Say what? VIRGIN CHEESECAKE. Plain. Tight. No fruit, not even a single cherry,  no nothing!

Last fall while visiting New York for a blogging event, I was discussing my love of cheesecake with one of my BFF's, Jaime, from the fabulous blog,  Thoughts Fur Paws. During that discussion it was decided that while in the city known for having the BEST cheesecake in the land, we had to set out to find it!

Being the "take charge" kind of a gal that she is, Jaime asked the hotel concierge, and a few other people where we could find THE BEST CHEESECAKE, and it was unanimously decided that Junior's Cheesecake was the place to be!!

From Juniors website:

Hail a taxicab anywhere in New York City and tell the driver, "Take me to the best cheesecake in New York." Odds are you will end up at the corner of Flatbush and DeKalb Avenues in Brooklyn, at Juniors.

The hotel we were staying in was at Grand Central Station and as luck would have it, there was also a Junior's Cheesecake located there!! Jaime and I high-tailed it over and THAT is where the photo of the delectable cheesecake above was taken!

The cheesecake at Junior's is made the way cheesecake SHOULD be made! Melt-in-your mouth, dense enough in texture to KNOW you are eating REAL NEW YORK CHEESECAKE (none of the light and airy stuff for me thank-you-very-much). It is PURE CHEESECAKE  HEAVEN!

Since I am not a one-night-stand kind of a cheesecake gal, or a hit-and-run, I have ordered from Junior's a few times since I returned to Michigan.

I ordered their Pumpkin Cheesecake (Seasonal) to bring for Thanksgiving and a Sampler Cheesecake as a present for my husband's birthday last February.
The sampler I bought for my husband

Ordering from their website was fast and easy...there are different shipping options so if you need your cheesecake sent in a timely manner, it WILL BE! It arrives in perfect condition as well!

So, if you have a craving for cheesecake, if you are in New York, head on over to Junior's and have a piece (or two or three) for me, PLEASE!! If you want to give them a try, hop online and order some!

OR....

WOULD YOU PREFER 

A LITTLE OF

THIS???

Nibble gently Ladies!
I'm ticklish!!
Love, Cody

  7. Sounds like you enjoyed it! Actually Cody, I would prefer your cheesecake. Your mom might think it's weird but I don't really like cheesecake. I don't hate it, but I just don't really like it so I never eat it. Maybe if I had some of this cheesecake, my mind would change :)

  17. I love cheesecake and so does my mom - last weekend was her birthday and I made her a homemade one from scratch - the kind that takes four big blocks of cream cheese and takes over an hour to cook in a spring form pan that is slow baked in a bath of water surrounding the pan!! Very time consuming, but so, so, so creamy and delicious!! I topped it with a fresh raspberry topping and I am still dreaming about it!!

    Replies
    1. Hi Deb! Ok you just totally disproved my theory for Sue from Katsrus lol!!! OMG YOUR CHEESECAKE SOUNDS AMAZING!!! FOUR BLOCKS OF CREAM CHEESE??? OMG!!!!! You are sooo patient! I never make them because the kind I like, (like the one you made) take a long time and you have to be a talented baker to make them. I can't bake worth a darn but I am a great cook! How do you stay so slim????? YUM!!!

      Delete
    2. If you are ever in our neck of the woods, I promise I'll make one special just for you!! It's worth the price of airfare!! LOL!! And I stay slim because I am a neurotic lunatic!!

      Delete
    3. OMG Deb! One day I will take you up on it!!!! I just re-joined Weight Watcher's yesterday, so I am afraid that won't be for quite some time! OMG you cracked me up!! You are NOT a "neurotic lunatic!!!" LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Mom grew up in NYC and Juniors has always had the best cheesecake ever. Well, except for the cheesecake at Jack Dempsey's, but that restaurant closed in 1974. I wonder if they got their cheesecakes from Juniors? MOL Anyway, happy that you discovered them.

    1. Did you know my Mom was born on Long Island? YEPPER! Her mom and dad were from Brooklyn and she still has family there. Mom moved from LI when she was 2, that is why she didn't know about all of these great places! OMG Juniors is the BEST!!

  33. Our ShopRite sells Junior’s cheesecake. TW axed Pop for a sampler cheesecake instead of a birthday cake. The absolute best cheesecake she ever ate was years ago. When she worked, a coworker (who happened to be a Red Sox fan) made the best cheesecake. They had a bet and the Yankees actually won the series. He baked one for her.

  34. I LOVE cheesecake to the point of obsession! My son can make a delicious pumpkin cheesecake. It is one of those recipes that I refuse to ask for because the last thing I need is to know I have the ability to bake my own! I'll take a slice of your naked cheesecake and snuggle from your furry one!

    1. Thank goodness we don't live by each other! I am always grateful that I am NOT a baker, that is a blessing! That's one less thing that I need! lol. Cody says you can snuggle with him any day!

    I'm weird that I don't really like cheesecake. It's really just too rich and not sweet enough for me. My hubby thinks I'm crazy!

  41. Too bad, it is really difficult to find some in France.
    I remember, many years ago, I was an "au paire" somewhere in Long Island, and one of my neighbour was (perhaps still is) an expert ! Her cheesecakes were like paradise.
    My 14 years old niece who lives in San Francisco is here this week. She told me she can make one for me, but in order to do it she needs Philadelphia cream cheese. I cannot find any !

    1. Ohhhh nooo! Mom wishes you didn't tell her about QVC offering Junior's!! But, I guess it is the same as Junior's shipping the cake too, (only less expensive probably)...Mom just rejoined Weight Watcher's, so no cheesecake for her til maybe her birthday in October :) Oh and tell the lady cats, come and get it! xoxo Love, Cody

  58. Oh, No!!!! Did you have to say that Junior's does Mail Order??! My all-time favorite cheesecake although, I have to say, back in the day when there was a real Lindy's, theirs was wonderful. I was in the City for BEA (Book Expo America) and the publisher put me up at a hotel across the street from Junior's! In fact, my window overlooked it. In the Theatre District. Bliss. But no time for theatre, however, I ate at Junior's every chance I could that weekend! I used to make cheesecake. Those days are over. I would treat myself when I had a chance on a trip to Mad-hatten. They ship. Is there any way in which I can un-read that part?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ha!!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT! I am sorry!! lol!!!!!!! Ohhh I know Lindy's! Both of my parents were from Brooklyn and when my grandparents would visit us after my parents moved, they would bring Lindy's!!!!!! Thankfully I don't make cheesecake (I cook, but I hate to bake, thank God!!!) xoxoxo
