Summertime seems to be the time of the year when the neighbors get together for potluck parties and picnics. With all the standard things people bring such as bruschetta, layered salads, and the popular S’mores we are always the hit of the party when we bring in the Triple-Citrus Cheesecake by Kraft. It’s an easy recipe that features the delicious citruses of lemon, lime, and orange. It’s a great twist on the “normal” cheesecake and it screams summer. If you have never had a cheesecake made entirely from scratch, be sure to try this one and you’ll be the hit of the potluck party this summer.
