Chocolate ganache Cheese Cake. 

Making the strawberry sauce

Not to complicate the natural flavor of the strawberry; I only added lemon zest to the sauce. Enhanced by The lemon zest (no sugar added) you can literally bite into the berry nuance 

Making the cheese cake

Beside the cream cheese, the only additive here is a bit honey and whipping cream. Undeniably decadent and delicious, just a bite into this cheese cakes, you might probably say “Cheesecake Factory got nothing on this one”.

I enjoyed this cheese cake with coffee.  Since I prefer to drink my coffee black and unsweetened, not only it allows me to pick up the subtle differences of roast in beans, but also to recognize and appreciate the actual slight bitterness of the coffee. While the black coffee complements and enhanced the sweet nuance of the cheese cake, it also helps to balance the richness of the cheese cake. 

Making Chocolate ganache & Baking Cheese Cake

I love the snow, just to look through the window.


Still fresh in my mind, when my son was a small boy, I used to watch him slid on the snow using his snowboard fearlessly.
His excitement to show off how high and fast he could slide down from the top of the hill was unforgettable. Also those moments of building the snow man together was precious.


Then as he became a young boy, he made a business out of the snow. The boy got himself a sturdy snow shovel and started to go door to door around the neighbors asking to shovel their drive ways. 


At times he would stay out shoveling snow all morning and back  home shivering, but full of smile, breaming with joy with pocket full of cash saying, "Mom! Look, how much I made."  You got to leave it to the Mammon to makes any heart young or old leap with joy.


He counted his cash, bubbling with enthusiasm and recounting who were the generous and who were the miser neighbors.  


I knew very well  my son that not only his muscles, but also equaly his charm compelled some of the generous neighbors to dig deep to their wallets. 


While counting his hard earn money, I would quickly whipped up some warm and gooey goodness adding more smile to his handsome face. He always said, “Thanks mom, you’re the best!” Music to my ears.


Wow! Time flies, indeed.
