Kids in the Kitchen – Strawberry Cheesecake

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen. This week I picked up some strawberries which were on offer at the supermarket so Boo helped me make some yummy treats.

First let me say a thank you to the lovely children and Twm Tedi from Mummy To Mum blog for sharing their lovely Banana muffin recipe along with some great photos. I do hope you will join us again here at Kids in the Kitchen, we love sharing.

We have just over one week left of this months linky, that’s still plenty of time to come and share what you have been up to with your kids in the kitchen. I share all posts on Twitter and Pinterest and give you a mention here on my weekly recipe post. It’s all about the sharing.

Strawberry Cheesecake

I decided to use our strawberries to decorate a yummy cheesecake. This is just a classic cheesecake recipe which is pretty easy to make, but sometimes it takes a while to set.
I used a loose bottom 7″ tin for our cheesecake


100g digestive biscuits
50g caster sugar
50g butter, melted
500g full fat soft cheese (like Philadelphia)
100g icing sugar
200 ml double cream
punnet strawberries


Boo really enjoyed the first stage which was to bash up the digestive biscuits to fine crumbs
We then added the biscuits and the sugar to the melted butter and mixed them well
We put the mixture into the bottom of the tin and pressed it down firmly with a metal spoon.
We put the tin in the fridge to set.
Then we made the filling by mixing the cheese with the icing sugar until really smooth.
We whisked the double cream up into peaks and then folded it into the cheese mixture.
We carefully poured this mixture over the biscuit base and put it back in the fridge to set.
This can take a couple of hours.
Once set we made the strawberry topping.
Boo carefully sliced the strawberries in half
We picked out the nicest looking ones for the decoration and popped a handful into the blender to make a strawberry sauce (what was left over Boo put in her tummy)
When the cheesecake was set I carefully removed it from the tin and we decorated it with the strawberries and strawberry sauce.

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
