Dark chocolate and coffee plumcake – Cakes and pies

Have no idea why pound cake is plum cake. I think it’s a mistake of French and English influences in the modernization of the Italian language through the prior millennia since the medieval age.

Our 25 Best Tiramisu Recipes – MyRecipes

It’s with great pleasure that I get to make some serving and consumption advice about desserts at the after dinner table — hopefully this isn’t going to be tiramisu for lunch, because the advice is double fold. Although it’s considered a light dessert, this is in comparison to the general list of grand tortes that might fit the banquet 3 to 5 course dinner — and I mean this of course in the sense of everyone who will entertain in multiple course dinners at some time — and not just to seem obsequiously French, which I’m not — I’m usually out and about shopping and not even pretending to be French.

Besides all this introduction, and particularly concerning this Charlotte — you (should I say ‘one’?) might want to take caution that tortes generally and cakes of high merit like tiramisu, however interesting at the bon appetit released restaurant buffet spread, is actually a banquet table dessert and is best served at the close (this is why it’s light) of a heavy meal.

In very short, if you’re eating light and especially if your not starving on the particular day of feasting, but have been excessively “good” — this Charlotte will ruin your day. So might the other tiramisus. Please save it for a large meal gathering or a large meal night.

I just couldn’t stand not posting it and I just couldn’t stand thinking I was leading dieters down one of the most typical mistakes of their lives.

Tastes like a pizza, cuts like a pizza, yet there is no dough so you will need a fork! This smells wonderful while it is baking and IF you have any leftovers they taste just as great the next day – maybe even better! We love our pizza with pepperoni slices, onion, green peppers, banana peppers and mushrooms. Serve with a tossed salad and you will have yourselves one fabulous meal!

2C. Shredded Mozzarella cheese
1C. Italian Blend cheese
1 – 16oz. Jar Pizza Sauce (I use Mid’s)
Green pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, brown the ground beef – I season the ground beef with Pepper, Garlic Salt and dried onions as I brown it; drain off grease. Place meat in a mixing bowl and mix with 2 cups…

I am not from Philly nor do I claim to be a Philly Cheesesteak expert – BUT – according to my family this is a Philly Cheesesteak to them, and they love it! This sandwich is melt in your mouth delicious!

When it comes to the onions and peppers – I like my meat cooked with them especially for the flavor BUT I don’t like the fact they cook up to a mushy nothing SO I also like to sauté extra onions and green pepper just until they are al dente to add to the top of my meat before melting the cheese.

Please be sure to read my notes below – there are…
