Good times will always be remembered…..
The days in Leeds….
Just looking at the pictures makes me miss my beautiful apartment….the familiarity of Leeds….the people who made Leeds so memorable…and most importantly, where the cooking and baking first started…
I am missing my apartment sorely now…and of course my best friend too who has gone back to Malaysia.
Anyway, introducing my favourite cheesecake!
