I obviously love creating music and am much more confident at it than I am at cooking, but lately I've really enjoyed spontaneously trying new recipes and making up my own too! It's a bit like making music - you try putting new ingredients together and eagerly await the final result. Often it can be a pleasant surprise what you come up with!
Anyway here's something I made the other day. Night actually. In fact, I decided at 10:30pm that I wanted to make cheesecake. Don't ask me why - I just did. At about midnight the cheesecake was ready and it turned out to be a light and fun dessert! And here's the amusing bit...I found the recipe on the back of a pack of cereal. But I did modify the recipe quite a bit along the way, so here goes (and apologies in advance for the unamazing photo! Hehe...)
Mini Ricotta Cheesecakes with Strawberries
To make the base:
1 crushed up packet of Nice biscuits (any biscuits will do but I like Nice biscuits because they're coated in sugar, making the base nice and sweet!)
Melted butter (sorry I'm really bad with amounts...just enough to moisten the crushed biscuit and help it stick together slightly. Just stir in the butter bit by bit until it's enough.)
300g of fresh ricotta cheese
250g (a pack) of cream cheese
