Whatever It Takes

Whatever it takes, this class must go on”, that was what I embedded in my head.
Whatever it takes, my students must learn from this class”, that was what I pinned in my heart.

At the end of the day, it was an enjoyable and fruitful day for myself and my six students, in making macarons! Jennifer, you are lovely….Sandy, gosh we meet at last…. YokeSze, isn’t it easier than the tunes!….. WeiZhi, gosh you watch every step without blinking!….. Kim, you are so adorable ….a mystery guest….. you are learning well! Thank you to you all for making it so successful, I totally forgot my worries. I will definitely be posting this special day very soon.

Before I take a minute rest, I leave this special and easy recipe for your indulge,

A Lite Cheesecake

    Well, it just so happens that I was about to go on a cheesecake odyssey. I just received ‘Cheesecake Cookbook’ by Alan Rosen of Juniors in New York. So your post will just have to go into the lineup. These loaves just look too good!

    Also, I added your wonderful site to my blogroll.

    Nice fluffy cheesecake. I like both the Japanese light cheesecake and the slightly heavier New Yorker-type cheesecake. They are all good!

    Hope your class went well.

    Thanks Sunny. I tried out your recipe on Saturday and it’s a success! For once my cake did not sink…nor crack. I’m going to bake it for reunion dinner at my mum’s house as well as for my friends and relatives visiting me over CNY. Can’t thank you enough ;)). Cheers, Yasmin
