I used to stress about dessert, but this easy recipe for ooey gooey cheesecake bars totally changed that

What happens when you've been invited to a party or meeting on short-notice and you're required to bring some type of food?

Most people end up stopping at the store and grabbing something quick. Me? I feel guilty doing that, especially when I know other people have put in a lot of effort to make something at home.

I used to stress about it, but now with this quick and easy pecan cheesecake bar recipe I love getting invited places! I even make them for my family sometimes when I'm in a good mood!
