Cheesecake Day

July 30 is National Cheesecake Day in America. No wonder we saw different kinds of cheesecake on sale when we went to Homeplus yesterday.

How is Cheesecake Day celebrated? Simple! ^^ Just buy your favorite cheesecake from your favorite bakery and enjoy the cake with your family or friends. In the US and in some stores and bakeries in SK, you can buy cheesecake at a discount price.

Some people prefer to bake their own cheesecake to make the celebration “more special”.

I have wanted to try this no-bake cheesecake recipe which I have found on, but I can’t find graham crackers for making the crumb crust. (Why are graham crackers hard to find in Korea?) Perhaps one of these days, my husband and I can go to Costco. I’m sure I’m going to find graham crackers there.

My husband and I are cheesecake lovers. Our favorite cheesecake in Korea is the one from Ashley’s. In fact, it has been our tradition to have that cake on our anniversary and on Valentine’s Day or White Day.

“Sweet” things come in small packages. ^^

Some goodies, sweet wine and our favorite cheesecake from Ashley on White Day~~~ ^^

This is the way we like to eat our cake. We don’t slice it and put it on a dish… and we can finish half of it in one sitting! ^^

Cheesecake can be enjoyed any day of the year, but I’m glad there is Cheesecake Day. At least I have another reason to ask my husband to buy me one. ㅋㅋㅋ ^^v

Re: Cheesecake Day

I worked at The Cheesecake Factory for 1 year. On National Cheesecake Day, we release a new flavor of cheesecake and every customer gets one free slice when they order a meal. It is the craziest day to work, with the exception of Mother's Day.

But the Cheesecake is always super delicious!
