Classic New York Style Cheesecake with Fresh Summer Berry Coulis

Happy Thursday my loves!
While you guys are always my first love, you just know I have a little twinkie on the side. It’s just how I roll. If we’re going to be together, you need to know up front: I’m going to cheat on you.
…With cheese. 
Obviously. C’mon. And I don’t blame you if you do the same to me. I don’t know a single person on the planet who doesn’t love cheese. Even lactose-intollls like cheese. They might not be able to eat it – but they still love it.
Cheese. Oh yes. 
Berries-Two-WaysAnd cake. Oh my heavens! I love cake! Cakes (or cake like things) I love:
  1. Apple Brownies Cake
  2. Chocolate Beet Cake
  3. Breakfast Skillet Cake
  4. Ginger Pear Skillet Cake
  5. Golden Plum & Blueberry Snack Cake
  6. Grandma’s Chocolate Cake
  7. Lemon Pound Cake Parfait
  8. Molten Chocolate Lava Fondant Pudding Cake with Pomegranate & Candied Ginger
  9. Mom’s Home Baked Chocolate Chip “Cake” Cookies
  10. Punkin Doughnuts
  11. Rhubarb & Strawberry Bran Muffins
  12. Saturday Pancakes
  13. Strawberry Buttermilk Cake
  14. Dad’s Strawberry Shortcake
  15. Vanilla Cake with Buttermilk Frosting and Dark Chocolate Ganache Filling
  16. Zeppole (Italian Doughnuts stuffed with Blueberry Compote)
 …I know right? 16 shameless plugs right there. Point being: I LOVE CAKE! …(no wonder I’ve gained 20 pounds in the last 5 years, right?).
My newest love? ….Number 17….. Classic New York style cheesecake. I didn’t love cheesecake growing up. In fact I downright hated it. It was right up there with pizza, science fiction and talking politics for me. Luckily, I’ve come around. Now ask me what my ideal date night would be? Watching the new Startrek movie, followed by an intelligent debate about the Syrian crisis all while mowing down on homemade pizza and cheesecake! Okay, maybe not exactly. But you get the idea.  
A couple of weeks ago Beth from Young Idealistic Baker guest posted her Wine & Pine Galette Experiment. That day, I guest posted at her blog. 
P.s. Could I have inserted any more links into this post? Jesus!
