Ghosts of blogfests past

I can tell that life is getting back to normal again.

We are back to Mayhem Monday, and another world-famous Botanist curry is doing its hubble-bubble-toil-and-trouble thing on top of the stove.

But in between various kitchen-ey things I wanted to find time to share this.

I can't believe it's only three weeks since I took part in Jen and Melissa's Be Jolly By Golly blogfest. Follow link here to my post, which links back to the owners' blogs and all the other entrants.

We have actually used two of the recipe suggestions now. First off, the frozen cranberry ice cubes (sorry, I can't now find who suggested that) went a treat at Christmas in our celebration fizz.

Then yesterday, I dug out L'Aussie's toblerone cheesecake recipe. I decided the recipe looked simple enough even for me, but I only got as far as the base before Ali pitched in and carried on with the topping. Probably just as well. I deal with a lot of the savoury specialities, but Ali is the undisputed pastry chef and dessert queen.

We then had a tough time for the rest of the day defending the fruits of our labours from marauding fingers until after dinner.

So, let's ask our tasting panel what they thought of it...

Yep. I think that is two cheesy grins and one big thumbs up!


  1. Darn it, me wants -- ME WANTS! *Cries piteously*

    Okay, fine. I guess I'll check out that there recipe and give it the ol' Bott family try! :)

  2. Checking out that Toblerone Cheesecake! Yum!

  3. Hi David and Charmaine, yes, I honestly recommend checking out the recipe. I love cheesecake, but I'm not overly partial to the cooked variety, which seems to be the norm over here. So I was overjoyed to see this recipe, and to see how easy it is!

    Now, of course, I'm thinking up all sorts of variations to try. Mmmmm...lemon...strawberry...

  4. I'm always hungry when I read your posts! That Toblerone Cheesecake sounds to die for. I mean, it's Toblerone and cheesecake... really, can it get any better?

  5. Hey, Jennifer, that's pretty much what went through my mind when I first saw the recipe!


I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
