It's snowing outside. It's gorgeous. And I'm in a comfy mood. So I decided to post this recipe. It is DELICIOUS. It's like flourless chocolate cake, but better because it has good flours and REAL chocolate. That's what I'm talking about. We made this for my Mom's birthday which was on Christmas day, saved the extras in the freezer and indulged in them on my birthday. Nevertheless, it still tasted great two months later! My mom was pretty surprised when we pulled this cake out and being the chocolate connoisseur she could tell it was a high quality cake. Stamp of approval from chocolate addict = a good cake. And to top it off? My brother whipped up some amazing chocolate frosting to layer on top. Are you drooling yet? Scroll down to check out my recipe...
This fried rice dish is, like most of my recipes, pretty easy. I love white rice, especially after a work-out because it provides glucose to replenish your muscle stores that have gotten depleted. It also has basically no sugar so it is one of those dishes that you can eat to satiety, but won't over eat on because of its sweetness (that's sweet potatoes for me!!). I am constantly getting more and more influenced by asian foods. Just the other day in the grocery store I went down the international section and found rice noodles with two ingredients-- rice and water. For me I always find those things once I become aware of them. I may have passed that a hundred times, but never thought of looking at it because it was mixed in with all the other noodles! I ended up making a yummy stir-fry with that, which I will post sometime in the future (I am doing some trial and error to get the most delicious dish). Anyways, here is the fried rice recipe...
I finally got down a good crust that was crunchy and smooth at the same time-- amazing! I am so happy I finally forced myself to make this recipe. It is a lot easier than it looks. This quiche will provide me with breakfast for the next few days (if the rest of my family doesn't eat it by then!). Next time I am going to try it in a muffin pan so I get smaller quiches that are more portable. To be honest, though, it really isn't that much of a pain to just cut a slice and be on your way. And I just wanted to announce that this is the first recipe that I am finally using my new fancy camera I got as an early birthday gift! I am so excited to start using "bokeh" to turn out some kick-butt shots. Now, here's my recipe...
