Caramel Pecan Cheesecake

I love making this for Thanksgiving for my family. I normally do a more intricate design on the top, but swirls are so much easier! There is no wrong way to make a swirl:)

This recipe is soooo good especially with my brown sugar whipped cream that I made in the previous post. 



1 1/2 Cup- Graham Cracker Crumbs

1 Stick- Butter Melted

1/8 Cup- Sugar 

1/4 Cup- Pecans Toasted 

3 Sticks- Cream Cheese

1/2 Cup- Sugar

3 Eggs

1tsp- Vanila

Caramel for Swirl 

Brown Sugar Whipped Cream

8 Whole Toasted Pecans 

Homemade Caramels

I can not tell you how many times I have tried to make caramel candy. I have been through so many different recipes and I was starting to get really discouraged because I thought I would never be able to make it lol either the taste would be off or the texture was too soft like a sauce or too hard and chewy YUCK! 

I didn't give up, I have created the perfect Homemade Caramel Candy 



1 Cup- Butter

2 1/4 Cup- Brown Sugar

14oz Can- Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 Cup- Light Corn Syrup

1 Tsp- Vanilla 

In a saucepan combine all ingredients except for the vanilla. Cook on medium/high heat to 250 Degrees. Remove from heat. Add the vanilla. Pour into an 8x8x2 baking dish or pan lined with parchment paper and buttered. That dish doesn't have to be exact because you can alway form them later as you cut them:) I just used pieces of parchment paper to wrap them too! 

Fall Whipped Cream

This whipped cream can seriously make any dessert a "FALL" dessert.

Only requires 3 ingredients and a hand mixer, you can also use a whisk, but it would take so long lol

I will be using this whipped cream in lots of my upcoming videos such as Carmel Pecan Cheesecake, While Cake, Pumpkin Pie, and the list goes on. It is just that GOOD.

The crazy thing is all you have to do is switch the granulated sugar to brown sugar, that is it!!

You can watch the video tutorial on how to make it 



1/2 Cup- Heavy Cream

1 1/2 Tbsp- Brown Sugar

1/2tsp- Vanilla

Hope you love it!!

Love, Cayla

Summer Peach Cobbler

I am so OBSESSED with Peaches right now!!! They are so good this time of year. I normally have to settle for the canned peaches when I make my peach crisp recipe throughout the year, but since they are in season it's PEACH COBBLER TIME:)))) 


At the beginning of the video tutorial below, I show you the best trick to peeling peaches. Its mind blowing hahah It is the easiest thing. I feel like I should have thought of that, but I learned it on a Pinterest hack! Hope you like the video:) The recipe will be under the video. 

Pre-Heat 350
1- Stick Butter
1/4 Cup- Sugar
1/2 tsp- Cinnamon
2 tsp- Flour
1/2 Cup-Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup- Sugar
1 Cup- Flour
2 tsp- Baking Power
1 Cup- Milk
1 tsp- Vanilla

Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

For all you Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream fans out there, this one is for you!

It taste just like the ice cream but better.

This cheesecake would also be good with a chocolate drizzle instead of the hot chocolate whipped cream to give it the true flavor.

If you would like it to be more green add in more food coloring for your St. Patty’s day fun 🙂

I couldn’t find the oreos that where regular mint oreos so I used the mint thins, but you can use regular oreos or even the thin mint girl scout cookies would be pretty good also I think.

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

This title is a lot to live up to! 3 amazing desserts all in one!!! It is the perfect blend of them also.

I the moist gooey texture with the creaminess of the cheesecake and the taste of red velvet 😳 It’s true brownie heaven ☁️

To get this texture it is important that you don’t thin out your batter by using a bigger pan. The smaller the pan the gooier they get!

The 8×8 pan was perf for me but you might want to use something a little smaller and bake for longer to get that extra extra gooey!!

Cheesecake Truffles

These are so easy!!!! If you have leftover cheesecake (doubt it) lol but if you do then perfect. You can also just make a double batch next time and freeze that one for another time to make these perfect treats.

I feel like I would make these instead of chocolate covered strawberries for fun treats to give to people, a nice elegant box of them would be an awesome gift.

They are also so easy to decorate also!

SugarCookie Cheesecake Cupcakes

Such a long title, but it is all that and more! I was going to add topped with buttercream icing, but that was way way to long hahahaha.

Making the cheesecake with the ooey gooey sugar cookie vs. the decorating sugar cookie makes all the difference. I think I am just in love with that cookie LOL

The best part about this is no crust! I don’t if the crust is your favorite part? If it is you can add it for sure, but I like how everything is so soft and sweet:)

Decorating TIP! Make sure you make your swirl from the inside out because if you do it form the outside in it will look totally different.

Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

I never thought you can make a cookie with using some of the same ingredients as cheesecake! I was skeptical about making them at first to be honest.

I actually thought they might be just a dry Oreo cheesecake slightly on the sour tasting side 😖(I don’t know why lol), but they were NOT they were amazing!

Its because they are nice and buttery! Butter makes everything better 😊 and with Oreo in every bite you can’t beat it. ANDDDDD they are so easy its crazy. They have a short bake time and can be made in 30 min total!

Strawberry Cheesecake

Sorry so this video was up like 2 weeks ago and I just noticed I didn’t post the blog, it has been here the whole time 😩, but here you go lol

It’s all about the strawberry jam in this recipe!

The cheesecake is exactly like making the original recipe one that I make but with strawberry jam folded into it… so easy right?

I love how just one ingredient can make the cheesecake totally different.

This this cheesecake because it give the cheesecake a nice light sweet tart flavor 😍

Apple Pie Cheesecake

I know I should have waited till the holidays to do this one. It is a little out of place because spring is in full effect right now, but I couldn’t help it. I wanted to share this recipe with you because it is so different from all of the other cheesecake recipes.

This one is truly for my beginner bakers. The cheesecake is so simple because you don’t have to worry about it cracking, the apples hide every imperfection your cheesecake might have. The crust is easy, but you can also just go buy store bought crust if you want it extra extra easy!

The apples play a big part in how it turns out. Make sure they are nice and thin and not all one type because you want a flavor taste not something flat. I found that when baking this the apples get a little bit on the gummy side, I liked it BUT to avoid it place foil on the top for the first 15 min so they still cook they just don’t dry out as fast.

Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake

It is really just a lemon cheesecake I just thought raspberry whipped cream would go great with it!

It is a very spring like dessert, perfect for all of your spring holiday gatherings🌼. It is that perfect amount of tart with that perfect amount of sweetness and creaminess.

Some people use extract, but I am always so nervous using extracts because that can get so chemically tasting. I choose fresh juice every time!

Hopefully you all enjoy the recipe just as much as I enjoyed making it for you 🙂

Smores Cheesecakes Sammy

I am NOT a smores girl at all!!! I know I’m weird, but I have never been a fan. Maybe I just haven’t had it in the right way, but this one I guarantee you will love because I love it. If you stay to until the end of the video then you will see just how much I love it. lol

It is the perfect blend! I think that I just don’t like the gram part because it is dry, I fixed that problem. The marshmallow center is to over powering so I made it cheesecake marshmallow:) The chocolate is just chocolate there was nothing I changed about that LOL

I think you get the point though…. It was good.

You should definitely try it. The first time I tried the recipe I baked the chocolate into the crust and it burned 😩 so thats when I learned that it just melts pretty easy and I can just set them on top till they melt 🙂 So don’t do what I did!

Carrot Cake Cheesecake

The smell of it alone is amazing, but it looks amazing. The swirls look so pretty!

Making this is a little time consuming, but it is worth it. It will be especially time consuming if you don’t have a food processor. The best thing for me is always making my whipped cream the day before because I hate washing my mixing bowl when switching to other parts of the dessert..hahahah #solazy.

Quick Tip: When mixing the carrot cake part of the cheesecake be sure to NOT over mix anything, mix just till incorporated 😊

Thin Oreo Cheesecake

When I got done making this recipe I thought it looked like a big cheesecake cookie lol I don’t know if it does to you, but it is so thin that it just looks like a big cookie!

I love Oreos, it’s kinda strange because I am not a huge chocolate fan. I ate this for like 3 days nights straight. This recipe is so good and pretty hard to mess up. There are only a few ingredients that just all tie in together, and the drizzle on top is the perfect touch to make it look classy!


Just a quick tip also, don’t mix in the Oreo crumbs all the way because your batter will end up looking grey so just fold it in to create swirls:)

Banana Cheesecake


I love banana flavored things 😍 its my favorite!!! I get that flavor every time I go to get ice cream or a milk shake…. Soooo good.

When I made this simple NO-BAKE Cheesecake it was so easy I didn’t even have to put it in the oven. I just had to put the crust in the oven to make it nice and crispy 😙


When you are building your cheesecake make sure all the bananas are covered, if they aren’t they will brown extra fast!

Coffee Cheesecake

I didn’t mention this in the video but this is my best friends favorite cheesecake of all time! If you have seen my VLOG #2 on on my channel she also does my hair 💇🏼

It is sooo good and creamy! I was inspired by the coffee ice cream from cold stone. That particular flavor is so yummy I get it without toppings 😂

If you are a coffee drinker you will love this! It almost tastes like a mocha since it is so sweet, then you get the chocolate from the Oreo crust, and to top it all off whipped cream and chocolate drizzle. 👌🏼

The water and coffee makes the batter thin and cracks BUT no worries! we cover it with the whipped cream anyways.

Strawberry Cheesecakes

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these things. They are sooo pretty with that strawberry on top, it makes all the difference. Any fresh fruit on them is pretty, but I especially love the strawberries. 🍓

You should defiantly take them to what ever function you have because they are perfect individual portions.

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Better than Baskin Robins Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream! 🍀

And it is so easy and quick to make for St. Patricks Day coming up. It would also be really cool for kids to have their own pint of ice cream at home so if you want to wait for it over night than I would use pints or those little mini mason jar to make it personal size instead of the dish:)

I made an Ice Cream Sunday in my video, but you can have it how ever you want. I was even thinking (since it melts so fast) to make a milk shake out of it 😋 that used to be my favorite thing to get when I was little. MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP SHAKE PLEASE!!!! But I would get it at my local Ice Cream Parlor in Sacramento VIC'S Ice Cream.

2 Cups- Heavy Whipping Cream

1 Can- Sweetened Condensed Milk

1tsp- Vanilla

1/2tsp- Mint Extract

1/2 Cup- Semi- Sweet Chocolate Chips(or more lol)

2 Drops Green Food Coloring

Hope you liked this easy ice cream dessert tutorial!!! 

Green Velvet Cupcakes

Perfect for St. Patty’s Day!!!! 💚

I never would of thought of this until I found a picture on Pinterest of a Pink Velvet Cake hahah. I thought to myself, you CAN make different colors!? Duh? lol

So that leads me into making these green gems for the festive holiday coming up  🙃  The batter looks so weird to me because I am so used to RED, but ill get used to it.

The thing I love about cupcakes is that they have a super quick bake time, and at the same time you get that same cake flavor and moist texture that you would get if you had to bake an entire cake.

Not to mention how easy they are to to decorate! All I used was a BIG open tip(807), but if you don’t have that size tip you can also use an open coupler, or just a zip lock bag with a big whole lol

I crumbled up a little bit of an extra cupcake I had to ad a nice elegant touch, but if you would like to go with a more festive touch for kids you could use those shamrock rings in the center.
