I took the day off today, and baked a blueberry cheesecake. It has been ages since I baked anything that is more complicated than blueberry muffins. Okay, aside from pineapple tarts…
To me, blueberry cheesecakes are a visually appealing dessert. The deep purplish hues of the blueberries are a lovely contrast to the paleness of the cheesecake, and the look of it makes me want to take a huge bite of the cake. And when I do, I remember immediately why I don’t enjoy cheesecakes – they are too heavy and rich for my palate.
But I had fun making the cheesecake. And in many things, it is the journey that counts.
Goodbye 29 February 2012. See you in 4 years time!
