Cooking to feed the muse…
A photographic essay to show what one simply MUST have by one’s side when one has an April deadline. According to my publisher, I must finish Gisborne: Book of Kings by then so it can proceed to the editor… so, sweet stuff needed.
The chocolate melting.
The butter and eggs being beaten.
Homegrown boysenberries picked moments before.
The cheesecake mixture ready for beating.
The chocolate base mixed.
The layers now being marbled.
The berries added.
The cup of tea and cheesecake slice after it all!
In the meantime, why don’t you enjoy the first two books in the saga.

Although my working life never went further than preparing lectures and, later, writing articles and giving talks to various groups, I can totally identify with this! In my case I craved warm, fresh-baked gingerbread with a dollop of cream to get my ideas flowing.
Anything sweet – it must be that it calms one and gets the best results. Gingerbread warm with cream sounds lovely, Erika.
To quote Paul Simon..’I prefer boysenberry more than any ordinary jam. I’m a citizen for boysenberry jam fan.’ I would add cheesecake to that sentiment….quote from Punky’s Dilemma.. 🙂
I wish I could send you some of this, Tigers68. It’s a new one for me and is DELICIOUS!!!!
Yummmo!! I’ll bet that my blackberries would work in this recipe too?!! Thanks for sharing. Now git back to writin’ woman…. 😀
Any berry at all, Your Majesty, and if you want, I can email the recipe. It’s so yummy. But it doesn’t last for long, that’s the trouble. I looked in the box this morning and we’d eaten half!!!!
Mmmmm… that looks YUMMY Prue, send the recipe this way too please! Good brain food for a great work! sure of it. 😀
Will do Susana!
