Last night we celebrated a friend's birthday in a beautiful house outside of town. They have this stunning view of the bay and we got to watch the sunset before stuffing our faces with a fab dinner and (yes, I'm so modest!) an amazing cheesecake that mom and I made. It was taken from the Joy of Baking website but we modified just a few things. We made the crust from chocolate graham crackers and then I made a kind of blueberry coulis from local blueberries to drizzle over the top - heaven!
