Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize?

I was helping out in kids church in the weekend. It's amazing how sometimes what's being taught to the kids can speak to you more than what's happening in church.
Anyway we were talking about the Olympics and showed this video from the '92' olympics (you may have seen it but it was a first for me).
We work for a lot of things in life but sometimes things don't work out the way we planned. That doesn't mean that we give up though we 'push on to win the prize'.
Anyway that's my 2 cents worth. Enjoy the video, be inspired and see what you can get out of it.
So today is cheesecake day - YUM! In no way good for the waist line but in every way super delicious.
I couldn't let the day go past without sharing my favourite cheesecake recipe which is always a winner with friends and family. It's a Donna Hay recipe that i've adapted so i don't have to buy expensive ingredients (cheap i know haha). Give it a go and comment below with your fav cheescake recipe.
Preheat oven to 150°C . To make the base, place the almond meal, flour, sugar and butter in a bowl. Rub the mixture with your fingertips until a rough dough forms. Line the base of a lightly greased 20cm-round springform tin with non-stick baking paper. Using the back of a spoon, press the mixture into the base. Bake for 15 minutes or until light golden. Set aside. To make the filling, place the cream cheese, eggs, sugar, lemon juice and rind and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor. Combine the cornflour and water until smooth and add to the cheese mixture. Process the mixture until smooth. Lightly grease the sides of the tin and pour the filling over the base. Tap the tin lightly to remove any air bubbles. Bake for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and stand the cake for 1 hour, leaving the door closed. Refrigerate until cold and serve with fresh berries. Serves 10.
