Just picture a cheesecake that ISN’T sweet. It may be hard to imagine, but I promise it is possible and delicious. Other typically sweet treats like fruit and chocolate don’t have to be limited to dessert, either. You don’t have to decide between the two not only because THIS IS AMERICA AND WE HAVE CHOICES, but also, we put together some recipes found below to help you turn your fave sweets savory. You’re welcome.
