Marbled Cheesecake Brownies

I'm a foodie- a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food. A foodie, "seeks new food experience as a hobby rather than simply eating". Did you know that's like, a real thing! To say food makes me happy is an understatement. Am I a little ashamed? Not at all. I own it. I enjoy every aspect of food, the colors, the textures, the display, the smell, the fact that it brings everyone together and obviously, the taste. These marbled brownies embrace all of those aspects, so let's do this.
