No Bake Cheese Cake with Fresh Strawberries

While it should still be winter here, the temperature rose to around 24-26°C the last few days. This borrowed summer made me miss the chilly mornings when the shrill ring of the alarm clock isn't enough to jolt me (because I usually go back to bed and snooze for a few more minutes) and the warm water from the shower wakes me up more than it cleans my body.

And since it's a bit hot, I decided to make something perfect for summer and something that's delicious, easy and the kids will love. The No Bake Cheese Cake. I just copied the recipes online such as this from my favorite baking site, Bakerella and this from Best Recipes and made do of what I have in the kitchen. And although I believe that the result was perfect for a first-timer like me, there were still things I should've done or should'nt have done to make this more delicious. And maybe next time, I'll try the layered ones - the crust first, then cheese mixture, then a layer of graham crackers then cheese mixture again, then the toppings.

I also realized one thing. It doesn't have to be summer and hot to make me do this again. And the weather doesn't have to be perfect to wake up early and exercise (after all these sweets)! I won't blame the weather anymore (or use it as an excuse not to do things), and instead get up, do what I've been putting off, and enjoy God's blessings!

Wahh.. nakagawa ka na ng Cheese Cake, ako hindi pa rin!! Hahaha.. Inggit ako! I so love this Beth! How lovely your picture especially the bright color of strawberry! Just by the looks of it,I'm sure, it's super masarap talaga!

Alam mo ba na I should have done it last Xmas with the complete ingredients here, pero iba ang nabuo ko. Tiramisu ang lumabas. Lol!

Happy eating Beth! Can I have a share? hehe..

It's the start of Gabby and Sunday's vacation! And I'm back to the things that I always take for granted: reading and blogging. I've always looked forward to posting here but life has been a whirlwind for the past months. Gabby graduated from primary school and will be in high school this June. Yes, you read it right. I now have a high school kid. How time flies! I got so sick after that and was rushed to the ER and was given antibacterial medicines intravenously. But now, I'm back and raring to blog again.

Don't think that I don't like my job when I tell you that I took a leave of absence just to accompany my daughter to her field trip. I do love my job. But my daughter is growing up fast and I don't want to miss the chances of being with her on times she asks me to.

Ever read or heard about the famous deathbed regret quote? It says, “No man ever said on his deathbed, ‘I wish I had spent more time in the office.'” That thought reminds me to always have time for my family, no matter how busy I am at work. So on times I need to choose between being a mom and an office employee, I always choose the former. And I haven't regretted that choice since I started making it.

Let me be honest here. One of the reasons I went to that field trip was to check out places that aren't included in my must-go-to list here in Riyadh. I am so sure museums and exhibition centers are way below your list too, if they're there at all.

Almarai Dairy Farm and Factory Visit

Whenever I chat with my friend based in Abu Dhabi, I always ask her what she will cook for an upcoming occasion, and she would promptly send snapshots of dishes I only dream of cooking. And when I posted the photo of my husband and me on my Facebook account, with a short "A trip to Almarai Dairy Farm" caption, she later on commented that she and her partner like Almarai products especially the yoghurt and fresh milk. That's when I realized that although we're miles apart, my friend and I still have something in common: we enjoy the same brand of milk and juice drinks.
