This Pumpkin Spice Latte Cheesecake has two layers--a creamy one on top and a rich coffee and pumpkin one below so it even LOOKS like a latte. The coffee tempers the sweet so this is delicious, but not one of those too-rich desserts. Just rich enough to have seconds. Or thirds. :)

Does coconut oil make unicorns fly? Possibly. Because it does everything else.  Here are 75 ways (plus many more!) you can use coconut oil and why you SHOULD use it.

I love pears, but I didn't always. Read my story about how that changed and how I almost got pummeled in a movie theater when I laughed at the wrong time. Oh! And try this Ginger Pear Muffins recipe!

How to Post on Google+ and Get Results
Google+ helps blogs get into Google search and stay there. Are you leaving this great Google+ referral traffic on the table?

Because you have unlimited space to use, Google+ posts need to have more gravitas than a tweet. On Google Plus, it’s considered link litter if you drop and link with no reason why you posted it. The bottom line is, if you are taking the time to share something, take the time to post it properly. Don’t just drop link litter, it causes people to tune out and ignore your post. It can also get you banned from communities.

Think about why you want people to read it and give them a taste of the post. Build interest and create the opportunity for people to discuss your post on it’s own.

Google+ thrives on quality content that is posted thoughtfully. Share your best content and curated content with care and you'll see more interaction in the form of +1's, shares, and comments. Give it a try! 

Read it all here: http://maximizesocialbusiness.com/post-google-plus-get-results-17168/
