It was our wedding anniversary two days back and it seems unbelievable that so many years have gone by without my quite realizing it. I will not say it seems like we got married just yesterday because it doesn’t. It certainly doesn’t feel like its been sixteen years which suddenly seems like a very long time.
Akshaya is in the middle of her school term exams and a concert at her music school, I was getting ready for a trip out of Goa and that my husband was up to his ears with work. Fitting in a “celebration” into all this wasn’t part of the plan, even though we always make all such days “special” in our own way.
As it turned out we had a memorable evening listening to Akshaya’s school concert and an unexpected surprise from a friend in the form of dinner, cake, flowers and a musical serenade!
I’ll be away from Goa for a week (not on holiday), and I’ve set this post to be auto-published. No celebration is complete without a sweet ending however small, so here’s a no-bake cheesecake that I’ve made a few times before. This recipe is adapted from Tarla Dalal‘s Delicious Diabetic Recipes-Low Calorie Cooking and can be found on her website too.
While we are not very fond of tartness in our desserts, this particular cheesecake is a favourite. I use low-fat paneer (or creamcheese) and yogurt, both of which I make at home, and this becomes a very light dessert and the perfect way to end a meal.
You will notice two very different looking cheesecake photographs on this post. Both were taken a couple of years apart. The basic cheesecake is the same, its just the presentation that is different. One is of the cheesecake plain while the other is served with a blackberry compote.
