Who doesn't love cheesecake? You probably think you have to hit up a restaurant or bakery to get a decent slice of cheesecake, but we're showing you how to make your own right at home with four very different recipes.

No. 1: Slow Cooker PBJ Cheesecake

This clever peanut butter and jelly-flavored cheesecake is hard to mess up, because it’s cooked entirely in a slow cooker! PBJ in a slow cooker?! ‘Nuff said.

No. 2: Italian Ricotta Cheesecake

This rich and splendid treat from Cake Boss Buddy Valastro would make a beautiful centerpiece of any dessert table.

No. 3: Potato and Salami Cheesecake

Mario Batali’s savory cheesecake has our mouths watering just thinking about it. Eggs are combined with milk, ricotta, Parmigiano Reggiano, and Asiago cheeses, salami, parsley, and potatoes and paired with a toasted breadcrumb crust. Best of all: You can find all of the ingredients at your local farmers’ market. Delicious AND convenient -- what’s not to love?!

No. 4: Carla Hall’s Slow-Cooker Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake

This pumpkin-flavored cheesecake (also cooked in a slow cooker) would be great for fall, but really, is it so wrong to love pumpkin year-round? This delish dessert features all the flavors of pumpkin pie, but with the addition of a chocolate-y crust.
