Gluten Free Cheesecake

Gluten Free Cheesecake

Well, today is the big day! I’m not sure how I was supposed to plan for that one, but now I need to try and get one before school this morning, or after school. I wish I was just fully prepared to go into school today. I am excited because today I actually do get to start teaching geometry! I am a little nervous about how class will go, but I can’t wait to meet the kids and jump right in! I will let you all know how it goes soon!

Today I also wanted to share a recipe for a gluten free “healthy” cheesecake that I made. I brought this in for the last day of middle school as a treat along with a bunch of cookies. One of the students was gluten free and so I wanted to make sure I had an option for him to enjoy. He must have enjoyed it because he said, “YOU ROCK!” on the way out of class. It was pretty darn cute.
