July 30: National Cheesecake Day

Today is a day for all flavors of cheesecake, not just cherry(4/23,) blueberry (5/26,) white chocolate (3/6), or pumpkin (10/21).  I'm a fan of the Cheesecake Factory and I'm willing to try any of their cheesecakes that has fruit or caramel on it. 

Some sites say there's only two major types of cheesedake - New York Style and Italian Style.  Food Editorials claims there are many different regional cheesecakes in the US.  Wise Geek tells us there two main types - bake and no-bake.  (Personally, I think baked is the  better of the two.)

Whatever type you prefer, you're bound to find a recipe in either the AllRecipe cheesecake collection or that of Food Network and What's Cooking America both give us some interesting background on the history of cheesecake.  What interesting fact did I learn?  Cheesecake was popular with the ancient Greeks.

I think we can safely say that cheesecake is not a fad and will always be a hit.
