I bet this is a real treat that would dazzle non LCing guests.
However, many of my guests are wary of my cooking, afraid of my crazy low carb WOL/WOE, and want to see the package from which I serve things, such as Cheesecake Factory, or they think I'm poisoning them (aren't people weird? about LC?). I think I will save one packing carton and pull out something like this!!!! AWWWWW, I'll just feed them the poison they demand and save this for me, DH, and the few who KNOW!

Yum -Cherry topped cheesecake is one of my favorites! I need to invite guests for dinner real soon so that I can make this one. A whole cheesecake for DH and I is really too much, we eat it forever--, however, that doesn't stop me from making them.
Great pics Kevin.

Just goes to show once again that all the good cooks, er um, Men, are taken!
I sure have enjoyed the recipes you've posted, and look forward to trying some when I've collected all the ingredients.
