      1. This looks delicious!!!
        I love recipes made for two. Especially lemon dessert recipes as I am the only one in my home that enjoys these. I will definitely have to try this.
        Thank you for sharing :)

      2. Oh boy that looks too good! I definately have to try it! I love things with lemon! Thanks for sharing it!

      3. This looks so yummy! Love anything with lemons. Seems like a nice and quick dessert for the two of us.
        Have a wonderful week

      5. I LOVE your crochet dish towel! Pattern? I am the only one in this house that likes lemon flavor, so lemon for 2 is a great recipe for me and, well, me!

        1. Sorry no crochet pattern, I purchased it. Thanks for stopping by Jennifer!

      6. This looks delicious-it would end up as a cheesecake for one though, (my husband isn't a cheesecake fan-I know, he's crazy!) and I'm ok with that! :)

      7. I am really as close to drooling as I think I have ever been. I am definitely pinning this delightful treat! Thank you for sharing!

      21. YUM! Thanks for sharing at my Pin Me Linky Party!

      22. Hi Marcie,

        Thanks for linking up last week to Sugar & Slice Sunday. You've been featured on tonights link party - hurrah!

        I'm such a H.U.G.E. fan of lemon so your cheesecake really caught my eye. Is it bad that I want to put my hand through the screen, grab this cheesecake, run off to the bedroom and eat it all to myself under the covers? Umm, yeah! I think my kiddos would get seriously jealous if I made this recipe just for two though. More reason to double it! :)

        Also, we don't get cool whip here in the UK. I hear it's kinda like a lower fat sub for heavy cream, is that right? I'm guessing I could just sub that out for heavy cream then?

        I do hope you'll stop by and link up to this weeks party again.

        1. Thank you so much Lisa, that is so exciting. I will proudly display your button on my feature page. Yes you could use heavy cream and whip your own. That would taste even better!
          Thanks again,

      23. Love that this is just for 2! And cheese cake is my favorite dessert! Thanks for sharing at All Things Pretty!

      24. It looks delicious! I love limon recipes, thanks for sharing!
        Have a fabulous weekend!
