“I have forever been challenged with making a truly delicious cheesecake,” Kelley told Standing Room Only in a recent interview. “I did not want my cheesecake to just be an 'average-everyday cheesecake' that you could walk into any restaurant and order. I wanted to make my cheesecake, the one that you walked out of the restaurant saying, 'Damn, that was good! Who made that?'... and over time, I honestly feel like I have accomplished this.”

And the proof is in the pudding... err, the cheesecake! From the positive feedback Meredith gets from restaurants that offer Sweet To Eat - to the repeat customers who keep coming back for more - once you taste one of these delicious flavors, you are hooked and want to try more. “I have a loyal following of customers, who inquire about which flavors I will be delivering each week throughout the Lakes Region, so they can literally pick their favorite flavor and choose the restaurant that they will go to! I am proud to tell you that this is my passion and my cheesecake recipe has literally taken years to develop!”

Originally, Meredith started out by creating her cheesecakes in a commercial kitchen in Guilford, New Hampshire, but as her business kept growing, she needed more space and time in the kitchen. “Of course, being so busy is a great thing, Meredith interjects. “I have since, moved to a new establishment in Meredith (New Hampshire), and this new kitchen (called Genuine Local) has been great, allowing me more time to create delicious new recipes.”

There are several Sweet To Eat flavors to choose from, and Meredith is always busy perfecting new recipes as well. A few of these delicious flavors include Lemon Blueberry, Raspberry Lemon, Classic Cherry, and Cookie Dough. “As far as the ladies go, the number-one seller is my 'Chocolate Explosion'... a chocolate cheesecake loaded with mini-chocolate chips and smothered with a thick chocolate ganache... its basically death by chocolate! As for the men, they tend to like the the lighter flavors, like my 'Caramel Latte Cheesecake' or my 'Original Cheesecake' recipe.”

After spending some 20 years in the compassionate healthcare profession, it is easy to tell that Meredith puts her heart and soul into everything she does, and it truly shows in her dedication to these cheesecake creations. “I am finally following my true passion in life, and that is to be cooking and creating tastes and textures that people will love! Owning your own business is not always easy, but I love what I do and thankfully, I always have my husband by my side, always encouraging me... and helping to keep things in perspective when things gets a little hectic!”

As of now, Sweet To Eat solely offers cheesecake, but they are always considering whether to expand and offer other sweet products as well. “I go back-and-forth about one day, offering different items on my menu, but for now, I concentrate on creating the best cheesecake you will ever taste. So much thought and love goes into each and every cake that I make... you just need to try it and you will understand!

Currently, you can find Sweet To Eat cheesecakes (in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire) at Patrick's Pub and Eatery, The Local Eatery, Sal's Pizza, Fratello's, Italian Farmhouse, and The Lakehouse Grill. But for those not in that area, do not fret, for all you need to do is visit their website to order your own Sweet To Eat cheesecakes to devour! “Yes! Customers can place an order through our website, as well as our Facebook page. However, we do have a goal of eventually being able to create, sell and deliver cheesecakes from my own store-front!” Rest assured, SRO will be all over that story... but in the meantime, we're going to order a couple cheesecakes for the office.
