I made a cheesecake for a dinner event the other night. Husband likes cheesecake. This one in particular turned out really, really good. It was a Pumpkin Walnut Cheesecake.


Driving home from this dinner event, a conversation took place between my husband and myself.

It went like this.

Husband: Why is it called cheesecake?

Me: Umm, because

Husband (while cutting off my explanation): It’s not like there is actually cheese in it.

Me (trying to contain my laughter): Dude…really? Yes, there is!

Husband: Really? Well then, what kind?

Me: Cream cheese

Husband: Seriously? So cheese cake is mainly just a giant pile of cheese?

Me: Yeah, pretty much.

Husband: I just figured it was called cheesecake but didn’t really have cheese in it…you know like hot dogs….it’s not like those have…….
