Borrowed recipes

I am back after a really hectic, but fun weekend down at the coast. Some of you on FB might have already seen the pics. Well the pics haven't done complete justice to how incredibly beautiful Durdle Door was, but something is better than nothing right? Sandbanks in Poole, on the other hand, was a crowded beach but we still splashed around in the water and did some water sports etc. Came back super tanned and now my face is all red and hurting quite a bit.
On the food front, we ate and drank so much that Ro and myself are now living on sandwiches and salads. Until I get back to proper cooking, I'm leaving you with recipes I borrowed from two incredible food bloggers. They both came out so darn beautiful, and would definitely make its way back into our lives. Enjoy!

Cheesecake Truffles
The moment I saw them on Nags' page, I decided I was making it. It turned out so so good that it got over the exact same day is made em. These cute lil things are delicious and easy to make. Do hop on to her blog and check out the recipe. Thanks Nags for this wonderful recipe. Keep em coming :) 
PS: Like she mentioned, I gobbled down the cheesecake quite a bit, before dipping it in chocolate. It was jus yummeeee

Tiramisu Cake
Tiramisu as it is, is a favourite of mine especially after I got my free standing mixer, since whipping egg whites was initially a problem. Now tiramisu is such a make-in-advance dessert, that its made quite a few appearances while entertaining guests. Tiramisu cake, however, was a lil more tedious than what I expected, but the outcome was brilliant. The icing and layering etc. is not really my cuppa tea, and I did lose my patience quite a number of times, but the effort did pay at the end. The recipe has been adapted from the 'Tuesdays with Dorie' series and can be found here.
