Nutella Carmel Cheesecake with a Brownie Crust

   I just had to be a rebel.
   It’s a eighty degree evening in the summertime in my small mountain town.
   I just came back from a seven mile hike.
   My cabin has been shut up all day. It’s hot inside so all the doors and windows are open now.
   It is ridiculous hot in here.
   So I decided to bake a cheese cake.
   I hiked seven miles today! In heat! I deserve some Nutella Carmel Cheese Cake with a Brownie Crust damn it!
    I’m also planning to go run another three miles after dinner and before I eat the cheese cake. (And also while my house is cooling down)
   Sounds like a plan, right?
