Do you watch Last Resort? It’s one of those new shows we decided to give a chance and we’re pretty much hooked. Only this week, for the first time, I kept expecting Scott Speedman’s character to morph into a creepy hyrbid werewolf creature or for Felicity to come strolling up on the beach. I guess the good thing is that he plays different roles, unlike so many other actors that basically play the same role in every show or movie they’re ever in. Nice range but still strange. I think I like him best in Last Resort though.

Before we get carried away here… these cheesecakes should absolutely be on your holiday party menu. Mini eggnog cheesecakes, topped off with homemade sweetened whipped cream, a dusting of nutmeg and served on top of a drizzle of tart cranberry puree. It’s a simple but luscious treat that you won’t want to share.

I think mini desserts are my new favorite thing. Add them to the same category as cupcakes and cookies. Betcha can’t eat just one. I do love a full pie but there’s just something great about individual servings. No slicing required. You can prep the dessert table and have your guests serve themselves. You shouldn’t be slaving away at your own party anyway. Sit back and enjoy with a glass of spiked eggnog or cider, and of course one of these mini eggnog cheesecakes. Tis the season.
