Guest Foodie Post: Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

We are excited to feature this post, because other than our own Jake Van Ness (yes, Jake… You’re ours) it is our first Guest Foodie post in which our guest has sent us out of their own motivation a recipe they tried, with their own photographs and a little story about the recipe.

Juan Pablo Gonzalez and Daniela Rojas are part of The Foodies’ Kitchen community, and they wanted to share this wonderful recipe with us. We would love for more of you to send us your recipes and foodie experiences to make our website more interactive.  Don’t be shy!

This recipe belongs to Tracey Cameron from Calgary in Canada.  She gave it to Juan Pablo and Daniela and told them about how she has been making this cheesecake for years… She has been making it for so long, she forgot where she got the original recipe from.

Juan Pablo is from Guatemala, and is married to Daniela who is from Costa Rica. They are currently living in Canada and were guests at Tracy’s home where they got to try this amazing cake. When they had a taste, they knew this recipe would be perfect to share on The Foodies’ Kitchen because it’s “the best thing we ever ate!”.

They also shared a photograph on themselves, this was taken just before Halloween when they got together to carve pumpkins. Juan Pablo carved his to look like Gallo’s logo, our national beer… ha ha! Daniela’s frog in one of Costa Rica’s rainforest staples. Great pumpkins!

A special thanks to Tracy for sharing her recipe and to Daniela and Juan Pablo for sending it to us and taking these great photographs.
