Just before Christmas I wanted to stop by, add a recipe and share some thoughts with you.

Stopping by – a tick.
Adding a recipe – a tick (in a second)
Sharing – in progress :)

Christmas cakes are almost ready. One cheesecake is still in the oven… but almost done.
Not sure how it’s with you but I’m literally surrounded by sweets! How can I say no to them? Well, I can’t. And I don’t want to.

But coming back, I’m here to wish you beautiful Christmas. Full of peace.
I guess that’s what we all need the most nowadays. I’ve noticed so many people wishing peace to each other. We lack it, that’s for sure.
When I look at myself… last six months… I don’t know when it’s passed. I really don’t know. I’m trying not to waste time. To use every single hour, every single minute of the day… and still, something is slipping through my fingers. I can feel it.

Pay attention to little things. Keep your eyes open.
It’s good to see things. It’s better to notice them.
Good to listen. Better to hear.

Have a beautiful time.

PeanutButter MiniCheesecakes

It’s been a week or more now since I started eating peanut butter regularly. By saying regularly I mean… everyday ;)
Sometimes I’m trying to pretend that it’s only an addition to some wafers… But sometimes this pretending is pointless – I just eat it straight from the jar… My jeans started protesting.

Because of my new eating habit, I realised I forgot to post one of the recipes based on peanut butter.
I’m doing it right now… getting down to some new recipes :)

Cheesecake (made) with Passion

I don’t even want to think how long this recipe has waited to be posted… Shame on me…

——————————

Two possible ways of reading the name of the recipe.
You know my attitude to baking… Thus, Passion in the title :)
And more literal meaning – Passion Fruit as one of the basic ingredients of this cheesecake.
And here we have it :)

Passion Fruit is one of my favourite fruit. You had a chance to read a bit more about it while I was posting other recipes.
Currently, I’m trying to be patient to see it again on the shop shelves… It’s been so long. Too long, for sure :)I managed to squirrel some passion fruit curd away, though. I thought it was high time to make a use of it :)

I remember some time ago I made a cheesecake with lemon curd on top. I also remember people’s reactions to it – everyone was saying it was so tasty! (By the way, it turned out I still hadn’t posted it on Sarenka… Jesus, what’s going on with me?!)
Cheesecake with Passion has a really subtle taste. It’s not too sweet, thanks to quite sour top.
One of the most exotic baking on Sarenka :)
Check it out!
