Here is one of my favorite, very easy, recipes for a Kosher-for-Passover dessert, (or any special event dessert). I translated it for you:
|In case you want the Hebrew...|
7 oz bittersweet chocolate
4 egg yolks
1 cup heavy cream
1.5 tablespoons sugar
For the cake bottom...
Heat your oven to 360°. Beat egg whites with sugar at medium speed till stiff.
Add the shredded coconut by folding it into the egg whites.
Spread on the bottom of a 10" round cake pan or a 10" x 12" glass dish.
Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool.
For the mousse...
Melt the chocolate.
Add one yolk at a time to the chocolate, mixing each one in well.
Whip the heavy cream with the sugar until fluffy and soft.
Mix 1/4 of the whip cream into the melted chocolate until smooth.
Add the chocolate/whip cream mix to the rest of the whip cream and fold in.
Pour the mousse on to the coconut bottom and chill for 4-5 hours.
I don't usually use this blog for causes I believe in. I stay away from politics, I don't preach, I don't argue, I don't bring any of that into this place.
But this time I must.
We brought Nina home from Cambodia 11 years ago. We were part of the last group of parents allowed to bring their children home from that country. Since then no adoptions have been allowed. Children who were in orphanages in Cambodia in 2002, 6-9 months old, as our Nina was, are still in those orphanages. They have not been allowed to have a family.
Please read about this documentary, Stuck, HERE, and if you feel you can, please sign the petition to support bringing children home to families.
This is our Nina, 11 years after coming home, composing music on the piano she loves.
I just LOVE it when stitchers send me photos of my designs that they have completed stitching, LOVE it!
Here are a few of late...
