Home Made Cheesecake.

Firstly I must apologise for my lack of posts. I've been exhausted. I think my Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome is playing up and I have barely been sleeping. And when I say not sleeping, I mean two hours sleep a night, then wide awake and alert. After a day at work this tends to make me lethargic and doesn't leave me a lot of energy for blogging, so I apologise. I'm hoping to be getting on top of it shortly. Fingers crossed.

Anyway. On to something more interesting. I'm not the most domesticated person I know, in fact I'd probably go as far as to say I'm the least domesticated person I know. And yet, today, I found myself making Malteser cheesecake from scratch. Not a packet mix in sight. It even tasted devine. I think I'm in danger of becoming a domestic goddess. Though that could be going a bit far in all my excitement.

Have you tried to do something recently that you haven't tried before? How did it go?

I leave you with aforementioned cheesecake to drool over. :)






EDIT: To say, you can find the recipe Here. Just scroll through the page of different cheescakes until you find this one.

    I hope you get your sleep issues sorted it out. Being awake when you want to be asleep is so miserable.

    1. Thanks Sarah. It is making everything seem like really hard work. I'm sure I'll hit a level point soon.

  4. This looks amazing. I've been looking for a recipe since it's become my fav pregnancy snack. I literally stop indulging on anything else so I can hop over to the coffee shop for it once a week.

    It's good to hear about new challenges. I bought myselfna sewing machine last week and figured out howmto thread, etc. all n my own and been sowed a comforter for my expected baby girl.
    I also bought some second hand peices of furniture that I wanted to try my hand at restoring and yesterday I stripped the first item of paint and sanded. So tomorrow me and spray paint. I think i'm in that nesting period. Especially with us moving house as well.

      I've popped over to your blog and seen your comforter. It's lovely.

  5. As I said on twitter that cheesecake looks divine! When I followed the link to the recipes I feel in love with the blueberry cheesecake (Yes, I am going to marry it, so there). Is there anything you can take for your POTS when it gets particularly troublesome?

    1. Theyt all looked heavenly didn't they! I think I will be trying one of the others as well, though I do feel an urge to make the malteser one again!

      The POTS clinic have come up with a couple of things. I'm trying the first one, then if that doesn't work by four weeks, we look at option B. I'm sad that this means I'm going to be popping pills for life, but it's a bit unbearable without them, so needs must I suppose.

    1. Thanks Talli. It's not the best feeling.

  11. Your cheesecake looks divine. I love the special touch of cherries on top. The "becoming a domestic goddess" part wouldn't be of concern to me, more the "gaining weight from hogging all the cheesecake."

    1. Yes, the weight gain with doing this is a bit worrying, but I'm not going to do such generously calorie laden things often, but it was definitely worth the treat.

  12. Malteser cheese cake sounds delicious. I've done nothing new lately and need to get out of my rut so Malteser cheese cake sounds just the way to do that. Hope you're starting to feel better.

      Let me know what you think if you make that cheesecake!
