Dulce-ious Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Recipe

Take time to do what makes you happy.

How would you make a delicious dessert even more delicious? By adding some dulce de leche touch! I know, cheesecake itself is already awesome. It is nothing but a source of pure bliss (well any kind of dessert is). Now I tried to smash it with much more awesomness by adding   dulce de leche caramelized sauce into it! It is basically a cheesecake with dulce de leche sauce and of course everything is homemade! Let me show you how to do it in an easy step by step process.

Road to heaven / diabetes: 😀

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 3 package of  cream cheese (250g) each
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of crushed Graham Crackers
  1. Preheat oven 425 °F.
  2. Crush Graham crackers and mix it with butter.wp-image-583536542jpg
  3. Press the mixture in a 9 inch spring form pan. This serves as the crust of the cake.(You can use spoon or glass or your bare hands to press the mixture firmly.)
  4. Pour on the condensed milk in a pie pan, cover it with foil and steam it under an inch of boiling water. Use the preheated oven from the step 1 to do this. Wait for an hour. (Caramelization process)
  5. While waiting, beat the cream cheese until soft then mix in the sugar.
  6. After an hour, get the  caramelized condensed milk, whisk it and get 1/2 cup of it. Leave the rest and put it in the fridge for latter use.
  7. Mix in the 1/2 cup of caramelized condensed milk onto the mixture of cream cheese and sugar. Blend well.
  8. Add the eggs gradually and whisk the mixture slowly.
  9. Preheat again the oven this time for 350°F.
  10. Pour on the mixture onto the spring form pan with pressed crust.
  11. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
  12. Let it cool. Chill it for minimum of four hours and serve it with the remaining caramelized milk. *Heat the caramelized milk in the microwave first before pouring it onto the cheesecake.

Other Ideas for topping:

  • any kind of fresh fruits
  • peanut butter
  • chocolate/nutella

Beef Broccoli Recipe

We were college students when me and my partner went out for our first  movie but we only have enough money for the tickets. He was still courting me then. He was too straightforward to me admitting that he did not have enough money. ( Maybe it’s one of the things i liked the most about him. 🙂 ) I planned to pack a lunchbox for us to eat inside the cinema. I know it sounds crazy but the hell who cares hahaha. It was one of the most embarrassing yet unforgettable experience for us. I knew that beef broccoli is one of his favorite dishes so I tried to cook it for him. The night went well and we had big smiles and laughter after that night. 🙂 Continue reading “Beef Broccoli Recipe”

Stir-fried Chicken and Vegetables

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

If people gets bored, so does the food! Makes sense? Yes! If you occasionally buy a pre-packed ready to fry chicken and you eat it every single dinner of tour life, are you not going to complain? Or think out of the box? That’s what happened to me. There was a week when my freezer only contained chicken chicken chicken. I love fried foods. I know they are not healthy but im really inlove with the smell of oil and garlic! i cannot help it. One night as i was planning to cook my food ritual which is the great fried chicken, i thought of a plan on how to make it different just for a change. But at the same time i wanted a fried chicken. I’m thinking to cook two different kinds of food both made with chicken but it was a lot of work for me to think i am gonna be the only one who’s gonna eat it. So there came the idea of making it stir-fried.   Continue reading “Stir-fried Chicken and Vegetables”
