Feature at Anthology: Muscadine Marbled Goat Cheese Cheesecake!



The time has arrived again for my monthly feature over at Anthology. This time I decided on a dynamite dessert that's sure to please everyone. With a twist! Because that's how I do things. Think of it as the perfect marriage of grapes and cheese....

I hope you'll love the story (and recipe!) as much as we do.  Happy Friday everybody!!!

I would also like to use this dreamy dessert story to offer a giveaway of two prized possessions. The fantastic rubber spatula used in making this cheesecake crust - from none other than the inventive folks at GIR (thank y'all for such a solid product!) - and, the Clean Plates Cookbook, by Jared Koch and Jill Hough. Their savvy recipes are for people interested in sensible, sustainable, and delicious eating (that means YOU).

In order to qualify: 1. Share this story with your friends and social community, and include why my work has inspired you (even in the eensiest bit), and 2. Link your share back here with a comment, or on my Facebook Page or Twitter stream, and include one thing that inspires *you* day-to-day. With each entry, you are entered to win. The more the merrier! Continental US residents only (for shipping purposes, sorry), though I love y'all far out there in the world! You have until October 27th at 11:59pm, CST to add your piece. I cannot wait to see what you all share, as my inspiration list is a long one! Have fun!!!

    1. The first time I had goat cheese cheesecake was on my birthday some years ago in Montreal. I loved the idea (why not, right?) and tucked it away until my farmer friends made goat cheese and passed it on. What better way to take advantage of such yummy delights?

  3. I'm fairly new to your site but find it lovely! Especially the goat cheese in this cake as I'm not a cream cheese fan. Will check back in to share when I'm not at work ;)
