With this being my very first post I didnt know what exactly to write about. I thought why not write about my lastest cooking experiment.
I'm still new to this cooking thing... even though I've been married for more than 3 years now and have been cooking since then. And I don't like it very much. Especially the normal everyday meals. But I love creating beautiful things. Baking cakes. Sweet things... I love eating them too :D
Anyway.. back to my cheesecake. I had guests over in the weekends.. my husband's relatives. I managed to make some ghee rice, chicken curry, tandoori chicken, raitha, salad... and the cheesecake for dessert. I love it! Considering food, I value my opinion more than others coz guests/friends would usually say it tastes good even if it doesnt... :)
Had come across a strawberry swirl cheesecake while browsing through Youtube and I tried it out.... it came out great though not exactly how it looks like in the video: . I used Cherry Jam instead of strawberry.
 My husband, Hafiz, and son, Ayaan, loved it too. Hafizka doesnt like sweets much, so that was quite a compliment :)
Here's how it turned out:

The instructions were quite easy to follow. After the cheesecake had baked and cooled I topped it with some grated chocolate and red colour M&M's chocolate...

It was soft, creamy delicious!!!!
In the evening we went out with them... a bit of site seeing.... went to The Atlantis in Palm Jumeirah.... had dinner at Wangs Kitchen.... love the chicken sizzlers they serve.....

All in all we had a wonderful day... :)
