Baked Cheese Cake

Homemade Cheesecake with Strawberries and syrup.


Homemade Gluten-Free Cheesecake

 

This is a family cheesecake recipe.

I usually make for a large group of people or a family gathering since it cuts into about 15 slices.

 The graham cracker crumbs can be eliminated in order to make it totally gluten-free.

It’s quick, simple, and requires very few ingredients. It’s a very thick cheesecake.

It can be garnished with fresh strawberries and other fresh fruit or, fruit compote.

Lens Artists Challenge – Negative Space

The photo challenge this week is ‘Negative Space’.

Negative space is the area around the main subject of your photograph.

This space is empty or unoccupied.

 The use of negative space is a key element of artistic composition.

Lens Artists Challenge – A Labor of Love

The photo challenge this week is ‘A Labor of Love’: a task done for pleasure not reward.

Generally, our eyes devour images of food far quicker than our palates taste them.

Food preparation onboard cruise ships are meant to capture our desires for delectable scrumptious foods.

The chefs are creating ‘A Labor of Love’ with food for you.

We were fortunate to be able to take a tour of the ship’s kitchen.

There are specific chefs for carving fruits and vegetables to delight your eyes.

It’s quite a skill. I’ve added a video below showing the technique.
