Some weeks ago Blaga, from Broken Sparkles proposed to me (in a post dedicated to Bluejellybeans, what an honor!!) a couple of recipes for me to do and then write a post with pretty pictures and so on;) Today I bring you the cheesecake (obvious, I have a sweet tooth) the Tagliatelle will have to wait a bit.
Blaga is a wonderful writer, her poems come from her heart and the way she writes…I’ll call it word portraits. This is how she describes herself, “I’m crazy about the blue of the sea, the green of the eyes and the purple of the rainbow”, beautiful, isn’t it?
This is the link to her post; there you will find the recipes. The cheesecake is amazing, it looks beautiful and it tastes even better! I have to make a confession though, I didn’t have one orange at home, but I did have mandarins, so I use two mandarins’ peel and the flavor was ah-mazing!!. I strongly suggest that you too give this recipe a try, it is very easy to make and best of all, it requires no oven! Ideal for these hot days we’re having lately…
I made the recipe as Blaga wrote it, but I think that a little unflavored gelatin would not hurt, because even after having spending the night in the cool, cool fridge, the cheese was still a little bit soft. But it unmold perfectly, so I leave it to your discretion.
Thanks Blaga, it was a wonderful recipe that I’m planning to make over and over and over…
