White Chocolate Cheesecake
OK, I know the tofu glaze sounds way over the top, but the reality is that it rocked -- the whole dinner rocked. Almost to the point of "considering this for Thanksgiving dinner" kind of rocked. ;)
The combo of the chipotle in the sauce and the smoked papkrika in the sweet potatoes was a perfect match for each other. The cranberries and orange added the right balance of sweet and tart along with the heat from the chipotle.
The white chocolate cheesecake was requested by our son -- personally, I'm not a huge fan of white chocolate in general, but this cheesecake just changed my opinion. None of that waxy taste, just creamy tofu goodness...
