I am rediscovering my love for art after putting in over 10 years as the classical music critic for The Buffalo News. It's a dream come true to join the community of They Draw and Cook because I have always admired the artists on this site. I continue to be a big fan of classical music, and I am working on finishing up the authorized biography of the great American pianist Leonard Pennario.

The Turgeon Brothers restaurants were famous in Buffalo, N.Y., in the 1970s. Among them were the Boardwalk Cafe, the Crouching Lion, the Sign of the Steer and the famous Roycroft Inn, restored now and revered nationwide as home of the Arts and Crafts movement. Buffalonians loved the restaurants for their magnificent Sunday brunch. This is the recipe for the great Turgeon Brothers cheesecake, passed down to me by the daughter-in-law of the chef who used to prepare it.
Easy to make, and goes down easy! Last Christmas, I couldn't find the peppermint vodka that I like, because our local distributor stopped carrying it. So I tried making my own. This recipe is fun and a great introduction to the art of making your own liqueurs. Cheers!
