Today’s recipe is recommended by Dr. Liz Graham Lightfoot, wildlife biologist, mate to Michael Lightfoot, heroine of BAD MOON (whose story is added to in MOONSTRUCK: SECRETS), and cheesecake aficionado. She swears by these little yummies but suggests that you double the batch (or hide half of them! 😉 ). If you want any, that is. 🙂

      Signed in to what? And I gave up on the passwords. I have an “address book” with all that crap written down. I need to get a new one in my Christmas stocking so I can “copy” everything for back-up. 😆
