Panna Cotta Cheesecake

"********** The instant pudding MUST be replaced by Hansells Classic Panna Cotta mix. Zaar didn't recognise this ingredient. ****************** This super-easy dessert looks really impressive, but takes no skill or effort to put together! You can turn it into a chocolate dessert by adding 125g of finely chopped dark chocolate to the hot panna cotta mixture, then stir it through until the chocolate melts. From the January 2009 issue of "recipes +" magazine."

I'm married, I have 2 kids (both boys), and I live in Australia. I have loved cooking for as long as I can remember, and have become completely addicted to browsing through Zaar looking for new recipes! I have a small animal shelter for rabbits and guinea pigs, and spend most of my time looking after kids or critters!. My favourite cookbooks are The Essential Pasta Cookbook, The Central Cookery Book, Flo Bjielkie-Peterson's Country Cookbook, and Greek Cooking (I bought that one in Greece, and it's FANTASTIC). At the minute, we are getting ready to move, which is forcing me to sort through my recipe cabinet. I have been trying out all those recipes that are scribbled on pieces of paper, or torn from magazines, so I can decide ifthey are keepers or not. So far I've found a lot of keepers, and will work at posting them on here. I'm passionate about a lot of things, mainly my kids, animals, and cooking. I won't even start on my peeves, we'll be here all night! lol
