I love playing with cheesecake recipes :) I used coconut sugar in the cake. It's far less sweet tasting. You can also use all butter in the crust. I like the texture coconut oil gives. The time does NOT include giving the cheesecake 24 hours to sit. You can make the syrup the next day so it's warm when you serve it.
This is one of my favorite quick meals. It's very thai-ish but not traditional in any way. The recipe is very versatile. You can use any meat (chicken and salmon are my favorites) and any fresh, dried, or frozen veggies you have. You can add any kind of noodles, although I don't like the taste of wheat noodles in this dish. Rice, bean, and kelp are the tastiest.
ZWT7.... This is exactly how the recipe was posted and I'm still not sure if it's a raw fish recipe or the halibut is supposed to be cooked. I'm guessing raw since it says to eat immediately and discard all leftovers. Since I'm in Colorado and we don't get fresh fish, I always cook my meat.
These were great fun to make :D These are very sweet without adding anything. Since these are for a holiday party, I wanted to add liquor. But my mom doesn't do any alcohol so we are not using anything but cream and chocolate when she and I make them. I divided the chocolate in half and used a half cup of liquor in each (Bailey's mint and Kahlua). Adjust for whatever sweet you are using. If you do not like dark chocolate, do a bar of milk and a bar of dark. I like a very dark, rich chocolate. Times include refrigeration
For the maple syrup, ANY sweet, such as maple syrup or honey, is fine. I used Godiva's Caramel liquor. It was amazing. But honey, maple syrup, hazelnut syrup... anything will work. Prep time includes melting down the chocolate and cooking time includes refrigeration.
This amazing Spice Company is at my local Farmer's Market: http://www.frombeginningtoendfoods.com/ ... I bought his Bacon Chive Dip and made a chicken pot pie with it. So this recipe stars the dip :) PLEASE let me know if any measurements seem really off. I never measure and forgot to pay enough attention.
I got tired of peanut butter and almond butter cups and wanted something a little less heavy, but still with tons of fat. Cooking time is refrigeration time. I use a 72% chocolate baking bar or 88% green & black's chocolate. I use Gherredeli's 100% unsweetened chocolate. I get freshly ground almond butter at the health food store. **** add 145 calories to each bar and 119 of fat and 1.5 net carbs for the coconut butter.
