Kesha Jordan's Sweet Potato Cheesecake recipe is a finalist in "Emeril's Comfort for the Coast" contest.

I am always in the kitchen doing something to spice up creativity and trying to get out of the norm of basic cooking. Two years ago on Thanksgiving Day, I wanted something different for dessert. We are always having the same dishes to pass and compare. I wanted to bring a dish everyone would talk about for holidays to come. My creation of Sweet Potato Cheesecake was a hit.
