I spent 16 years living in Seattle and became a coffee junkie! I had to relocate across the country, so I created this cheesecake with the flavors of salted caramel, coffee and espresso to lift me up on those days when I feel blue about leaving Seattle (one of the great coffee destinations of the world). —Julie Merriman, Cold Brook, New York
This creamy cheesecake is a family tradition; I've even shipped it to my daughter as a special treat. Using seasonal berries, it's an excellent dessert any time of year. —Jeanette Volker, Walton, Nebraska
It's a snap to spell out sweet sentiments on these quaint cupcakes when you bake a batch ahead of time using convenient cake mix. You don't even need a heart-shaped muffin tin to make them.

I went through a phase when I couldn't get enough cheesecake or coffee, so I created this rich dessert. Its brownie-like crust and creamy mocha layer really hit the spot. It's excellent for get-togethers because it can be made in advance.
Pretty layers of graham cracker crumbs, creamy filling and fruit topping make this dessert a standout! For a nice change, you can substitute blueberry pie filling or another fruit flavor for the cherry filling called for in the recipe.

If you want to offer family and friends a dessert that really stands out from the rest, this is the cake to make. Beautiful high layers of rich sponge cake are drizzled with a succulent chocolate glaze. —Erma Fox, Memphis, Missouri
"Like my mother and grandmother, I have special recipe for every occasion," notes Beverly Coyde of Gasport, New York. "For Valentine's Day - one of my favorite holidays - this beautiful cake is an outstanding treat."
My daughter and I trimmed down a recipe from a television cooking show, and these bite-size cheesecakes were the result. We shared them with neighbors and friends, and no one suspected they were light. —Lori Lewis of St. Johns, Michigan
