i used to draw.

i went through some of my art work from high school & middle school the other day
i really used to love being artsy. i miss that sometimes.
i was not very good, but it's still fun to look through!
it makes me miss mr. miller & mrs. crowley forcing me to get to work.
i need a crafty/artsy room so i can have some fun again.

s'mores cheesecake

so i decided yesterday that i was in the mood to do some baking.
my cousin and i went online and looked up recipes that had ingredients that we would already have
{we failed to read through the whole instructions though}
so we chose this recipe.
unfortunately it ended up being EXTREMELY involved and took about 3 hours!!
and we did the steps wrong a few times and had to re-do things! ugh!
we ended up finishing it so late at night that we didn't really do the final touches on it.

but this afternoon we feasted on this masterpiece! :)
we topped it with some chocolate syrup
it was very rich, i couldn't even finish my slice.
but it was pretty good, not my favorite though.



if you're a hardcore baker than this would be a fun one to make.
i can honestly say i would probably NEVER make this again!
but i would eat it again, and i probably will right now!
