How To Bake Mango Cheesecake

For me, September means my birthday, kids going back to school, and the transition into my favorite season, Autumn. Here, near the Blue Ridge Parkway and surrounding, the leaves are unreal. The vibrant foliage makes me feel like Pocahontas singing “Colors of the Wind.” Autumn conjures up the memory of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, spicy baked yummies, and soft fuzzy scarves. Despite happily anticipating Autumn, it’s bittersweet to watch Summer go. No more frolicking in the water and snow cones and slushies galore. So come celebrate the last bits of Summer with me and send it off with a hoooorah!
