Happy Valentines!

Oh well, my greeting may be a day late but what the heck right? Better late than never. So there. Haha! I celebrated valentines with my family. My mom prepared a feast and it was superb I must say. Complete with the presentation. And it's really tasty. Yummy to the eyes and to the tummy, like I always say. :)

The special menu for the day included Pumpkin Soup with Croutons, Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp Salad, Steak with Mashed Potatoes and Buttered Carrots and Corn, plus the dessert which I made, the Strawberry Cream Pie. It was a feast I'm telling you! Awesome food and company. Love love love <3

Food is love <3 Again, stay in love everyone!

NY Cheesecake with Strawberry Compote

I just love desserts! I think it is the highlight of every meal. Haha! I'm a sucker for sweets so I keep a lookout for new dessert recipes to make (or bake). Anyhoo, the other day I was really craving for cheesecake. And since we have lots of strawberries since my parents just came from Baguio (and strawberries was my only great request from them) I made a strawberry compote as a topping for my homemade NY Style Cheesecake. I researched a lot of recipes and watched videos of how to make a cheesecake because I don't want to screw it up.

So yea, it was a success and (I think) everyone likes it.

 Fresh from the oven. NY Cheesecake. Yum!

And here is the finished product. Yummy to the eyes and to the tummy!
