Apple Cheesecake Bars {Recipe}

I'm a huge fan of cheesecake. Strawberry, chocolate drizzle and cherry are among my top 3 (that's why I have 4 packages of cream cheese in my fridge at all times). So when I found this recipe for cheesecake bars, I was thrilled.
These bites are delicious, small and have every single layer perfectly packed on top of each other. The only thing is that I don't like doing so many layers. But it turns out, they are well worth it.


2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons, divided

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Streusel Topping:

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup quick cooking oats

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter

with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Press evenly into a 

13 by 9 by 2-inch baking pan lined with heavy-duty aluminum 

foil. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar in an 

electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Then add eggs, 1 at a

time, and vanilla. Stir to combine. Pour over warm crust.

In a small bowl, stir together chopped apples, remaining 2 

tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon evenly over 

cream cheese mixture. Spread the apples on top and sprinkle 

evenly with Streusel topping. Bake 30 minutes, or until filling is

Feeling Blue

dress // blouse // tote // pumps // sunnies // watch // bracelet 

I'm a fan of remixing and wearing my clothes lots of different ways. Believe it or not, when I was planning this outfit, blue seemed the way to go. Although it looks monotone, I love the cohesive look of one piece.
It's really cold outside and I'm on the verge of abandoning outfit photos (again). I mean seriously! I get ready in the car, then jump out, pose for 2 minutes and jump back in. A huge thanks goes to my sister who is (still) willing to take my pictures.

Glam Thanksgiving Tablescape {Home Decor} + $50 TARGET Giveaway

I love decorating for fall but sometimes it just gets too orange-y. Of course, there is the rustic look which a lot of people adore and do great job with. My favorite though, is a fancy with a touch of rustic (the burlap pumpkins). It's always nice to sit down to a perfectly decorated table while enjoying delicious food. So if traditional pumpkins and gourds is not for you, here's a look which empress all your guest (I think). Plus you can keep all the gold stuff around for Christmas decor. A win - win in my book! 
Thank you reading and have a great day!
