I have to admit. I don't really know who Donna Hay is. Apparently she is a well known chef. Though not so well known that I know who she is.
I've seen a cookbook or two of hers at the book store, but only after I started seeing Hay Hay its Donna Day events at some of the blogs I read. I didn't pay too much attention to the events until Peabody won (and from what I saw, a well deserved win it was!)
By winning HHDD #9, Peabody won the right (?) to host the next event, and choose the category. A girl after my own heart (but not waistline), she picked cheesecakes as the theme for HHDD #10.
I can tell you right now - my cheesecake is not winning prizes for the most beautiful one, or for the most picturesque one. It might, however, win for taste, especially if those voting are into chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Oh, and butterscotch.
I looked through a whole bunch of recipes before I picked one to take apart and make. I wanted to make a savory cheesecake but couldn't find anything I thought my family would eat. And I was not up for eating an entire cheesecake myself this week. With this cheesecake I at least had an event to go to that I could bring it to.
