I almost forgot to share this recipe, the photos were lost in my endless photo library.
I've created a new portfolio from 500px as you can see I've added a new badge & a new tab at the top :)
So, I'm reorganising my photo library at the moment.

I found the photos from the library & then I've to find the recipe...
Luckily, I have an iPad & I've used it to jot down note & recipe.
I barely remember what I liked about the cheesecake but the chewy bits & the subtle note of wine.. from my note.
