Challenge Week 1 - Cooking

When Posie mentioned her 'Limp Bits' Challenge I thought it would be a great idea to join in.  If nothing else it would give me something else to blog about other than my Handstitch Quilt that everyone must be sick of seeing already!

I decided to make a cheesecake.  I have never made one before which is surprising because I really LOVE cheesecake.  A lot.  And in honour of the fact that this is an Olympic inspired challenge I thought I would make a Mars Bar Cheesecake using THIS recipe.  Why start with a 'regular' cheesecake?!

Mine does not look like the photo in the recipe.  Somehow I also managed to dirty every saucepan and jug in the house too.  I also used both the Kenwood Mix-Master and Food Processor.  I am STILL cleaning up!  I also think that the choc and  caramel sauce was overkill.  Next time (if there is a next time) I will put the Mars Bars in but leave out the sauces.

It does taste ok, so all was not lost.  The Mr likes it more than I do.  I think I will try a regular cheesecake next time; if I ever get the kitchen clean after this one!

Next week's challenge is craft; I am training hard already with an idea brewing :)


  1. Oh yay, it looks delicious!! I really like cheese cake too & have only baked a couple in my lifetime. They are scrummy & something you can eat in small portions & make it last days!! Congratulations, so thrilled you joined in & made something new to your skill set. Shame about all the washing up, hilarious, such a bummer though!!
    Can't wait to see what you put forward for the craft, i'm still a bit at sea with crochet, desperate to nail it. Love Posie

  2. It does look indulgent. Well done for trying something different.
    We love cheese cake here. Could I recommend a black forest for your next one:)
