I love going to grocery stores and Whole Foods is one of them. I don't know if its the piles and piles of neatly stacked fruits and vegetables that fascinate me or it just I love anything in it's natural form, do you get me? hahaha. So during my recent trip to Whole Foods, these round oranges piled up at one end of the aisles caught my eyes, I rushed over & start sniffing them. Do you know how much I love drinking fresh squeezed orange juice or the scent of freshly grated orange zest? You won't know til you've tried. Anyways, so I start reading all the signs of all these different oranges, then I read Blood Oranges...wow...then mindlessly 4 of these gorgeous crimson fleshed citrus made its way into my cart. I don't know! I get attracted to non-common things for some reason. This is going to be made into a sauce for my cheesecakes, Lemon Goat Cheese to be exact.
This, my honeys, is the Lemon Goat Cheese Cheesecakes, made with half cream cheese & half goat cheese. My first encounter with these were on the infamous Tartlette's blog, trust me goat cheese is the last thing in my mind to put in a cheesecake. I'm not a big crazed about anything Lamb or Goat, I mean I will eat it if it's put in front of me but I wont put it as my first option. However, I will never say I don't like something unless I try it at least once. [I do give second chances because I'm sure not everything is created equal, let alone cooking/baking skills >.^]
However, these are actually pretty good! the Lemon comes to the tongue first then followed in by the obvious goat cheese taste, it has a very...ummm...goat-y? taste. If you like lamb or goat you may like this very much, an adventure for daring/curious eaters & not much for people that don't enjoy the goat-y taste. hahaha...I know goat-y is not a word but hey! its my expression hehehe.
Today is also Little Eddie's younger sister's 15th birthday! So he came to me asking me to make her a cake, like VERY last minute, all he said was "she likes Domo & chocolate" Then he asked me to make these sponge cakes filled with cream and fruits, like those typical cream cakes sold at chinese bakeries. I kindly reminded him that its his sister's birthday, she like chocolate, then at least give her something chocolate. At last, I did a compromised, I made a chocolate cake, filled with whipped cream & fruits, which I topped with a sugar topper of her favorite character, DOMO! <3
|Happy15th Birthday Maggie!!|
