A low calorie, low-fat, scrumptious-sounding recipe I have just found in the Australian Women's Weekly's 'SLIM: low-fat eating for life', and which I am posting for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge. The recipe didn't specify the heat level, but my guess would be that the figs are cooked over a medium to low heat.
This is from a cookbook entitled "Creative Cooking", and somehow manages to be both refreshing and decadent. It's so good. If you can only get small figs, use a few more; the glasses should be full almost to the top. Why not just make a double batch anyway? I usually do. :) I hope you enjoy this! Please note: Cooking time is chilling time.
Desserts were never a large part of the African diet. For a long time, sugar was really expensive. Desserts were usually reserved for Christmas. This is a fairly healthy and easy to fix dessert. Recipe from Angela Shelf Medearis.
Received this in email today when our heat index was 102F! It was so hot I did not even brew a pot of coffee this am! This gelatin recipe will replace coffee tomorrow - I listed it as a dessert but think I'll be having for breakfast! Will make as written first then try with Splenda (1:1 substitution). Three hours is chill time. Thank you, Ms. Bertha Robbards - this is going to be mighty refreshing!
I found this in a box of very old recipes. It is listed as one of Mrs. Harry Truman's Favorites. can be served with whipped cream, ice cream or sherry sauce. The original recipe only says nuts but doesn't say what kind. Walnuts sound good in this.
