Vanilla No-Bake Cheesecake

In the heat of summer, I rarely turn on my oven. I get it from my mother, who cooks very seasonally. I thought everyone cooked this way but I was wrong. It never ceases to amaze me how many Texans will roast a chicken in the dead of summer. Not me! I live in Dallas…

Mini Lemon Cheesecakes

A bright and happy miniature cheesecake just in time for summer! Sometimes you want cheesecake but you don’t want to wait 24 hours to eat it. If you’ve ever baked a cheesecake at home, you know what I’m talking about. I love baking mini cheesecakes because they only need a couple hours to chill and they…

Mini Lemon Blueberry Cheesecakes

A bright and vibrant miniature dessert! This is not a new recipe to me but it is a new recipe to The Rose Table. I’ve been making these mini cheesecakes for years topped with jam but I’ve updated it with my homemade blueberry sauce, which I just published last week. This is a great make-ahead…

Mini Pineapple Cheesecake

If you love pineapple, you’ll adore this dessert. The mini cheesecakes are rich and creamy and the pineapple is bright and cheerful. Pair with caramel sauce, coconut whipped cream, crunchy macadamia nuts, and toasted coconut, and you’ve got a luau-worthy dessert! I served these cuties at Disney Dinners: Moana and am proud to say that…

Cheesecake Mason Jars with Blueberry Sauce

What is more delightful than cheesecake in a jar? Get ready because I’ll be making variations of this recipe all summer long. I love it because it does not require turning on the oven and you only need the stove for minutes. It gets hot here in north Texas so any delicious dessert that doesn’t require…

Mini Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecakes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

I have long thought I should start a support group for those of us who liked pumpkin before the Pumpkin Spice Latte. As a lifelong pumpkin lover I find it incredibly frustrating that all pumpkin things seem to now be pumpkin spice. These are not. Like my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread, these mini cheesecakes are pure…

A Mistletoe And Holly Affair 2015

Oh by gosh, by golly, it’s time for mistletoe and holly!” Last night I hosted my annual Christmas cocktail party, which started at 5 pm and ended up going until 1 am. I suppose that’s the sign of a successful cocktail party! Last year I wanted everything to look snowy and shimmery. This year I…

Summer Garden Party

There are few things I love as much as cooking good food for good people. I recently had friends over for a summer garden party on my flagstone patio. We played croquet, drank wine and champagne, and enjoyed each other’s company. For the table, I chose a simple white tablecloth. Since I had an umbrella in…
