So something strange happened to me this afternoon - i had the urge to clean! As i am almost over the flu, i have had a great burst of energy. I decided the kitchen was going to get it.
Before: The sink area = messy!
Before: The breakfast bar area
After: The shiny sink area!
After: The sparkling breakfast bar!
I played the best music on youtube to help me get through the crumbs and grease including;
The Veronicas - Untouched
Muse - Super Massive Black Whole
Thom Yorke - Hearing Damage
The Killers - All these things that i've done
Elbow - One Day Like This & finally
Placebo - Running up that hill
So once the kitchen was shiny looking, i decided i wanted to mess it up by making a baked cheesecake. It wasn't the healthiest recipe (can cheesecake be healthy?) but i made it for dessert tomorrow. We are going around our friend John's house for a roast dinner, so the cheesecake is for 2 strapping men - of course i will have a thin slice as it would be rude not too! :)
- Approx 15 digestive biscuits
- 5oz melted butter
- 4oz butter
- 85g icing sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- 4 tbsp double cream
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 whites, whisked until stiff and folded in.
The base = digestive biscuits and melted butter
Poor the mixture onto fridge cooled base
Level off and bake at 170 for 1 1/4 hour
I do confess to licking the whisk!
O yeah....and the bowl!
My kitchen is once again a mess!
and there is a new mound of washing up!
But it was all so worth it....check out my first baked cheesecake - it smells delicious but will not be consumed until tomorrow - the hubby wants to eat it now!
Well kitchen is back to its shiny state....now to mess it up again, it's dinner making time in the UK!
