Grabbed a camera last evening and quickly shot a few more whites

As Promised: A Holiday Recipe - I have made this for many years. Has never failed me. Very rich and decadent so the small slices means many servings. I am serving this at a party this year.

Frozen Mocha Cheesecake

1 1/4 cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs (about 24 cookies) - the thin ones in long yellow box
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c butter melted
1 (80z) cream cheese softened
1 (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
2/3 chocolate flavored syrup
2 TB instant coffee
1 teaspoon hot water
1 cup (1/2 pint) whipping cream whipped

In small bowl combine crumbs, sugar and butter, In buttered 9 inch spring form pan, pat crumbs firmly on bottom and up sides of pan. CHILL. In large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy, add condensed milk and chocolate syrup. In small bowl, dissolve coffee in water, add to condensed milk mixture. Mix well. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into prepared pan. Cover, (foil is fine). Freeze 6 hours or until firm. I usually make it the day before. Garnish with additional crumbs if desired. Return leftovers to freezer.

Suzan you really have the loveliest of homes. I think this would be my dream some day. There is just something about the palette that speaks to my heart. Eveytime I try to achieve this look I get side tracked by color.
Oh hubs...do you think we could buy a second home somewhere? (and have Suzan come decorate)
