Strawberry No Bake Cheese Cake + More Easter Recipes.

Strawberry No Bake Cheese Cake + More Easter Recipes.Good morning everyone!!! Easter is right around the corner and sneaked up on me faster than I realized. For some reason I was thinking Easter was at the end of April. I don't know where my mind has been lately. Today I am posting a recipe for a Strawberry No Bake Cheesecake that I served at my Spring Brunch last weekend. This cheesecake was a huge hit and at the end of the morning there was only one slice left. When I was preparing this cheesecake the night before I was thinking, this would be a great dessert for Easter.

It just reminded me so much of spring. I don't know if was the pretty pink color or if it was the strawberries themselves. Since this cheesecake is a no bake recipe it's really a snap to throw together. I also thought that if you played around with the different flavors of jello, I bet you could come up with all different variations of this cheesecake. Maybe peach, lemon, lime or a mixed berry cheesecake. Have you stared planning your Easter menu? If so what are you serving?
