Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

The secret cake recipe
I couldn't tell you what kind of cake I was making because I wanted it to be a surprise but now I can fess up and share the recipe.
Espresso Dark chocolate Cheese cake
I start with the store bought chocolate cookie crumb pie crust, you can make your own with crumbled cookies and butter but I'm too lazy.
2 8oz packages of regular or lite Cream Cheese (softened)
1/2 cup of sugar
Espresso coffee flavoring or strong brewed espresso (1 shot of espresso will work or add to taste)
Break up a bar of Dark Chocolate and melt it.
Using a mixer whip all but the coffee and chocolate together.
Mix in the Espresso
Pour half the batter into your pie crust.
Mix the chocolate into the last half of batter.
Swirl the chocolate batter over the espresso batter.
You want the batters to be semi seperate.
***ooops I forgot to tell you how to bake it - duh.
350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until it's fully baked and not liquidy anymore.
Update on the pooch:
The tumor I could see was golf ball sized, they took out a baseball size round hunk and sent it off for cancer testing. Her scar is nasty so I'll save the description. Poor thing lost half her butt and because of the operation walking is difficult. I think she'll be ok though, I'll spend the day babying her. Thank you all for all the healing thoughts.
