Blueberry Cheesecake

OOH BOY hello it’s been a while. /insert embarrassed emoji. How are we almost halfway done with 2014?! The last few months have been a bit of a whirlwind – I’ve been involved in a little project – which I can’t really talk about for the next month or so, but hang tight for that – and that’s been, sadly, keeping me a little busy on the cookery front. Since the little spate of sweatshop labour, I…went snowboarding (again), and was in Sri Lanka (for the first time!) celebrating the wedding of one of my closest and oldest friends. After said beach extravaganza, I also went off my diet in a rather spectacular fashion and that ended up with me more or less scarfing M&Ms and McDonalds for the better part of two months. But!

Yamazaki and Yuzu Glazed Carrots

Happy 2014! I know I’m hardly the first person to make this observation, but it always confounds me how the last quarter of the year flies by. It probably doesn’t help that the most significant birthdays in my life are bundled between end September and early November, and they’re quickly chased by Thanksgiving, Christmas and the turn of the year, all of which have become little traditions in the circle of my surrogate HK family of friends, and which make the most amazing and delicious excuses to go all out in the kitchen for.

Merry Christmas!

And have a fantastic, delicious new year!

PS: Yes, this is the only way we get to have our tree without the three monsters strewing pine needles all over the living room. But this one is awesome, and thank you to A for our tree that’s the perfect mix of Charlie Brown and 21st century. :)
