St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time – a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic. ~Adrienne Cook
As spring (hopefully) approaches, so does St. Patrick’s Day. And Chicago takes St. Paddy’s Day celebrations very seriously. From dyeing the Chicago River green to the parades, it’s always a festive time to be in the Windy City.
But St. Patrick’s Day isn’t only about what you’re drinking. It’s also about the food. And to help you get ready for a Chicago-style St. Patrick’s Day, Baked Chicago is giving away an Eli’s Cheesecake to one lucky reader.
Eli’s Key Lime Pie Cheesecake combines slow-cultured cream cheese, sour cream and pairs them with Florida key limes. The cheesecake is baked in a traditional graham cracker crust and topped with key lime curd and whipped cream. This Key Lime Pie Cheesecake, along with Irish Mint Cheesecake and Irish Cream Cheesecake, make up Eli’s Cheesecake’s St. Patrick’s Day flavor selections.
Eli’s Cheesecake has been a Chicago tradition since 1980, when it debuted at the Taste of Chicago (America’s largest food festival). Eli’s is still a family-owned business and now also one of the country’s largest specialty cheesecake bakeries.
It’s been said that there are only two kinds of people in the world, The Irish and those who wish they were. I say there are two kinds of dessert eaters in the world, those who love cheesecake and those who haven’t had Eli’s Cheesecake yet!
