i had such a blast being in front of the camera again.  i may have been the geek asking gear questions… but i just loved watching the creative process of our camera crew.

the interview portion was relaxing after we filmed the “hand shots” and “wide shots” for the cooking segment.

in celebration of the holidays, kahlua has created a contest you can enter called “taste the spirit of the holidays…” you can win $1000 by pinning holiday inspiration.  fore more information, visit kahlua’s facebook page.

so thankful for the fun opportunity, and for my wonder-hubby who held down the fort (quite efficiently, i might add!) as i was off gallivanting around the city.  and thank you, jen, for the photos!  (if you remember this post, i was bemoaning my decision to “leave the real camera at home and soak in the memories…”)  click here to visit jen’s blog and see her adventures!

Here’s the recipe.  But to print all nice and pretty, save to an online recipe box, and watch the video, head to allrecipes!

“In this rich, marbled cheesecake, Kahlua imparts warm, coffee notes to a classic autumn dessert.”



1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

4 eggs

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 cup Kahlua




Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter in a bowl. Spread evenly onto bottom of springform pan. Bake 5 minutes; cool.


Beat cream cheese in a mixer bowl until smooth. Gradually add sugar and beat until light. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.


Transfer 1 cup mixture to a separate bowl and blend in pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and Kahlua. Pour half of pumpkin mixture into prepared crust, then top with half of cream cheese mixture.


Repeat layers using remaining pumpkin and cream cheese mixtures. Using table knife, cut through layers with uplifting motion in five places to create marbled effect.


Place springform pan on baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Turn off oven, but do not open oven door. Let cake stand in warm oven 1 hour.


Remove cake from oven, cool to room temperature, then refrigerate. Remove from pan before serving.
