Pink Flowers and Chocolate Cheesecake

My hubby loves buying me flowers and my favorite colour is pink. Today he surprised me with a gorgeous pink bouquet after popping out to the shops. Below is a pic of one of the gorgeous blooms from the bouquet. Maybe it's the girlie girl in me but the pink of this flower is the perfect pink ;o)

Who can resist a slice of decadent cheesecake? I certainly can not! I love cheesecake. It is the perfect dessert for entertaining guests or family and so easy to make. In celebration of the lovely spring-like weather we have had this weekend I thought what better choice of dessert than a cheesecake, so Chocolate Cheesecake it had to be. My son loves chocolate cheesecake and his been feeling unwell with a cold/sore throat for a few days, and what mother doesn't hate seeing her kid poorly, so I knew this would put a smile on his face :o). Lately with the cold weather, steamed puddings and crumbles with custard have graced our table after our Sunday meal but this cheesecake was a lovely change and a reminder of the eagerly awaited spring and summer.
