I always says eat dessert before the appetizer or entrée because it's the most anticipated part of dinner.  Life is too uncertain, let's get to the best part!

From the graham cracker crust, to the rich filling, to the very first bite, there has never been a time when cheesecake has failed to make my stomach happy.


After I discovered this sweets shop nestled in Rochelle, Illinois, my love for this dessert won't be dying any time soon.

Illinois Woman-Owned Dessert Shop Whips Up Heavenly Cheesecakes

CheeseKaKe Ko. is a woman-owned business operated by Katelyn Glavac and her sister Keri Creason!  Wait until you see the gorgeous cheesecakes they make.

Plus, Hy-Vee started selling CheeseKaKe Ko., too!

I tried the variety sample size box... boy, I could eat the entire box if I really wanted to.

I'm tellin' you, I love cheesecake.  I had probably half the box within the first 5 minutes of opening it.  The smell is incredible, too - from the moment you open the box!


I'm looking at their website and all their cheesecakes look soooo good.

From the Snickerdoodle, to the Death by Chocolate, to the Pineapple Upside Down Cheesecake, it's easy to see why CheeseKaKe Ko. is a big hit.

They're also at Rockford's City Market this year and I saw they sold out of all their product for the second week of the Market being open.  That's awesome!
