Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars

I think one of my favorite desserts is cheesecake. New York style — because growing up in the tri-state area (NY NJ CT) this is what we got at our local diner. Now, the rest of the country may have places to eat, but I have not really found the kind of diner that has menus that run 10 pages and dishes out Italian, Greek and American food any time of day or night except back at home in the NJ suburbs of NYC.

The problem is that I’m not downstate anymore and can’t get my hands on that amazing goodness anytime I crave it.  And this body really doesn’t need any help getting curvier — so it’s actually a blessing in disguise that I have to work for it if I want a piece of really good cheesecake.

So what do do?  How does a girl satisfy her cravings? In small bites!  I’m going to experiment with this recipe and will post my pictures, but I thought I’d share it now because you might be looking for something quick to make today and well, this just looks so incredibly good! And fresh strawberries are at the store now, and they are sweet!
