S is definitely not for cheesecake, but is IS for 'scrumptious!'
This weekend Mr E asked me to make him a Lemon-Lime Cheesecake, so naturally I did.
But he also requested cherries on top.
It's not cherry season. It is winter.
But, I am a wise wife with a constant store of frozen cherries in my freezer (to make my favourite mid-afternoon snack, a Choc-Cherry-Almond-Milk Smoothie), so he got his wish.
I call this 'The Simplest Lemon Lime Cheesecake Ever'.
Would you like to make it too?
Recipe is ready and waiting for you HERE.
Today, as you may have guessed from above, we're stitching S in our Monogram Mondays.
My S words are scrumptious, simple, smile, sweet, and Saviour.
What are yours?
My Sampler is coming along beautifully; are you stitching one of your own? I'm not sure how I'll border it yet, but I'd best make up my mind soon, because....
...I'll be sharing all of the remaining monograms by the 1st of July!
The last seven Monograms will be shared over the next three Mondays because I have something new to share with you later that month. No clues...just get excited.

I didn't want to put Pam's name and 1962-2012; the reminder for the little girls seemed so harsh on their memory quilts. So, I printed onto fabric the last family photo taken before she died, and added this...
I'm all out on my own with this one, so I'm asking you all, do you think that is okay?
My mummy died when I was just 3yo, and I think I would have preferred having 'mummy and me' to life dates...but that's me.
Over the last couple of Sundays I've been sharing photos on my Facebook page of words I'm stitching on to a small inspiration pillow in the making. So far I've shown these two...
Can I leave you this morning with a couple of thoughts?
Take time every day to
...because life has challenges that can bring us to our knees. Let the things people remember about you not be sadness or disappointment, but let it be your smile, your hugs, and your unique and 'moment-changing laugh'.
...in who you are, that you make a difference, that loving you has made someone else a better person, and that God loves you more than you have ever imagined possible.
