In one of my mom's old cookbook's this page was bookmarked. I started to cry because my mind was flooded with memories of her making this orange cheesecake. Of course, the photo is not my mom's or mine, but it looks fairly close and it tasted sooooo good! Thanks mom, for the memories. Love you, always!
