Annual Cheesecake now delivered

As has been the tradition since 2009 I once again presented Jim Thompson (a local South Dakota radio personality). It is a treat that I decided to give Jim because of how welcome he made me feel in 2008 when I put out a booth for Teas N More. I was giving samples of some of my baked goods, including home baked Strawberry Cheesecake. He tried a sample and said he would love to have this. I told him that I would bring one to him all for himself the following year. He didn’t take me seriously. He does now! He has received one a year ever since.
Jim is a wonderful man with down to earth values. I didn’t get photos of him, but I did of the cake. I also found that he will not his hourly show at the end of May, though he is doing a small 5 min. segment twice a day for a bit now. He will be missed. Oh, and I did tell him I will continue the once a year cheesecake for as long as I can even if he doesn’t have his radio show.

Annual Cheesecake day!

It is that time of year again.  The local farm and home show is tomorrow and it is time to bake the Cheese cake for the radio host of JT Live from Spearfish. This has become an annual tradition since 2008 when he first tried my cheese cake and said (teasingly) he would love it once a year. I told him I would and he didn’t believe me. Six years later I am still making and delivering my cheesecake, made from scratch and baked then topped with a ton of strawberries. I will post pix of the finished products tomorrow. The tradition gets my baking known to the public even though I never asked for that. Some people are really kind that way!
