Indulgence for the Weekend: White Chocolate and Bailey's Cheesecake

I have been invited to a dinner party tonight (sound posh I knooow) and we all need to bring a dish - Panic - I need to think fast.

I remember a friend mine, John, once telling me that when he went into a new place/party/met new people, he always brought a signature dish that people remembered him for and then loved him forever (so he said). I remember he made a  White Chocolate and Bailey's Cheesecake  which he brought to a barbecue we went to. It is true, people still remember the cake (less him), but the cake - Yes.

Ok I can try this: I got the recipe and I can follow instructions. I have no idea who first invented this cheesecake, if he/she is a famous chef or not; I just know it tastes D-I-V-I-N-E, (makes 8 good portions):

For the biscuit base:
1 packet 250gr plain digestives
2/5th of a standard block of butter

Melt the butter and mix with biscuits in a food processor, evenly distribute the mix onto a removable base cake tin(any cake tin will do but it's easier to get the cheesecake out this way) and chill in the fridge whilst you make the topping.

For the topping:
400 grms Philadelphia, 2 standard supermarket packets  
200 grams good,full fat greek yogurt
200 grams cream,double or single
200 grams sugar
200 grams melted white chocolate
100 ml   Bailey's

I am so utterly delighted that my book is now out, available to order both on paperback and on Kindle edition just in time for Business Women's Day - YES!!!!!! :-) 

STOP IT! It's all in your head   is my labour of love and my way to encourage, inspire and empower women to achieve what they want professionally and not be confined by societal, religious, family paradigms of what " women should do/are like" and, most importantly, the restrictions in their head.
If that is being CEO of a Global Company or a stay-at-mum or Director of Paperclip ( whatever grabs your fancy) so be it.

Writing this book was also a personal challenge ( the 30 days thingy) which confirmed to me once and for all that you can really do whatever you set your mind to, if you really want to that is.

Couple of tips for writing a book from me:
  • write about what you are passionate about, you know more than you think.
  • free-write about the parts/chapters in the book you like the most and you are most interested in first - that will give you a great boost at the beginning - you can edit and add the boring bits later - by then most of the book will be almost there
  • keep your own voice - write as you speak so to speak ( people do need to understand you though..)
  • keep an open mind, ideas will flow into you mid-way through the project
  • a deadline and going public is good to beat procrastination ( but if that stresses you out too much don't do it) - the deadline certainly helped me.
You can do it too!!!

The time is getting closer and closer to the release of   STOP IT, It's all in your head   my new book ( 22 September for Business Women's Day - US) .

I have now  received the proof copy of the paperback which looks absolutely fabulous: a couple of things to correct but overall I am super happy with the result.
A lot of marketing to do now between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+ ( which is PS: looking like more work than the actual writing of the book).

The book event/launch/talk is live on Eventbrite and you can buy an Early Bird ticket now:
