Marbled red velvet cheesecake

I've been putting my weekends — and stand mixer — to good use by taking dessert requests from friends and family. Most recently, they voted for cheesecake, which I love, but isn't the most exciting thing to make. I wanted to do something a little less straightforward and decided to give this Food Network recipe a try. It was still pretty easy to whip together, but thanks to the marbled design, looks a ton fancier. The cake was tangy, creamy and not too dense, with a hint of cocoa flavor from the red velvet swirls. My favorite part? The graham cracker crust stayed perfectly crunchy, even after a night in the fridge.
