Halloween is creeping up and I couldn’t be more excited.  If I ruled the world, Halloween, along with Thanksgiving and St. Patty’s Day would be twice a year.  XMas and New Years would be every other year, and we could just eliminate Valentine’s Day all together.  What do you think?  I’d love to know.  I’ll be heading to San Franny with Ms. Cherry in tow to ring in Halloween in style, so see you back at VintageSugarcube in a couple weeks (06 Nov 2010) for more shenanigans and deelicious sweet treats. And ladies, when picking out those Halloween costumes, just keep one thing in mind, your biggest asset is a man’s imagination.

Big thanks to Phil Defalco Photography for having a zest for excitement, as we weren’t suppose to be photographing at only the coolest spot in San Diego.

Where did I score that blouse and killer scarf?  United Cerebral Palsy Thrift Store in City Heights.

Recipe here. You’ve gotta try my latest late night creation, it’s super easy and super dirty deelicious.

    Love that you broke the rules a little, both with the photoshoot attempt and that devilishly delish cherry pistachio cheesecake! I also dig your costume and the fiery red hair… and the genius name CHERRY, on Virgin Atlantic – you crack me up big time, woman!

    How do you do it? As a long time baker, I love your recipes, Jenny! I really love your “no-bake” desserts. So simple, yet so delicious and elegant. And you come up with these amazing recipes again and again.

    I love the holiday suggestion…although I actually don’t like Halloween. But I could do Thanksgiving 4x/year happily. Why isn’t pumpkin pie a year round treat? (Hey, maybe you could do a spiffy pumpkin treat Vintage Sugarcube style?)

    The pistachio sealed the deal for me, and the fluffyness of the cheescake is awesome too. How do we join the sugarcube mile-high dessert club?

    It’s all Warrant’s fault! Every single time I see cherries I think of that damned video…

    Anyway, cherries are my favoritest fruit (for true). And, cherry pie is my favorite pie, so I think it’s safe to say that my favorite cheesecake flavor would be cherry too. Badass photos as usual. You’re a creative little dynamo aren’t you?

    O Vintage Sugercube- The site of the photoshoot looks fabulous. You must stretch the rules again for another delicious experience! Great job as always. You look beautiful and the sweets look SWEET!

  44. As always.. delish! Me and my girlfriend in college used to call Valentines Day “Black (fill in day of the week that year)” We would wear black and make ourselves a nice dinner. Even with boyfriends, its still a stupid holiday. SO if you want to start a petition to the prez about your proposal of holidays I would totally sign it :)

  45. this recipe caught my eye and i’m so glad because your pictures are AWESOME and the cheesecake does look wonderful too. ohhh yum!!! and i agree with all of your holiday change ups EXCEPT i love christmas. it can be christmas all the time :)

And thank you times a million for the kind, kind words. I”m just lucky I have a dear friend that takes amazing photography and hasn’t gotten tired of my shenanigans yet. I love your passion for XMas.. I’m gonna try to have a little bit of that good energy rub off on me this year. Thank you again!

    Once again you look stunning. You always cease to amaze me with your creativity with the photos & the desserts. I love this one…but did you say “shelled” pistachios. I’m assuming this is the spot you were talking about regarding the runway & planes. It is quite spectacular, plus you sure do know how to work it! Good job. Keep on, keeping on! Looking forward to the next shenanigan!

    Steph – I can’t thank you enough. The creative process is my absolute favorite part of the shenanigans. Well, having a cute pilot slithering is a bonus too! Anyway, regarding the pistachios, yes, shell them until you have 1 cup of them, then hammer the hell out of them. :)

    I enjoy your posts and your style. I might want to eliminate some of the craziness of gift giving on on XMAS and VDAY but not the actual day. I wish I can be as creative with Halloween costumes as you. You look cherry cherry hot! Love the recipe as well.

    Adelina – first of all, thank you sooo very much for checking out my posts and for your kind, kind words! I hear you on the craziness of the gift giving. I think everyone should just bake cookies and have one ginormous cookie exchange. How does that sound?
