Unlike an office job, where a resume and an interview can be enough to get on the payroll, applying for a culinary position usually demands a "try out".

When I was in my early twenties, weekend nights with my hometown buds were built on Fuzzy Navels, White Russians, and throwing down some sweet moves at a club called Let's Dance in Poughkeepsie, NY. After hours of drinking and sweating it out, some serious munchies were in order. We'd hit up one of the few spots in the area that was still serving. We'd sometimes land at Denny's, but if there was too much of a line, we'd head over to the 84 Diner. The atlas-sized menu spanned the cuisine of the world, but I only had eyes for one thing: the bright red cherry cheesecake that was spinning around in the revolving pastry case. The massive slice of sweet cream cheese, canned-cherry-topped, graham cracker-y goodness hit the spot and readied me right for bed.

So good, in fact, that in a fit of white chocolate lust I downed the whole batch in a sitting, the thought of pausing for a moment to take a photo about the farthest thing from my mind. So here we are, now in 2012, and writing this paragraph is slow going because I keep stopping to scrape the last edges of ice cream from my tupperware. Suffice it to say, I like this recipe. A lot.
