Brownies Ya'll!!

12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 sticks butter

4 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 T vanilla

1 cup flour-sifted


Pre-heat oven to 350. In a double-boiler, melt butter and chocolate together. Allow to cool slightly, then add eggs, sugar, vanilla, and flour to make a batter. Pour batter into a greased 13x9 pan (I use a glass one) and bake at 350 for 25-35 minutes. (Due to the large amount of chocolate in this recipe, the brownies will appear to be underdone, but they are not. They are very 'fudgy'.) Allow to cool and enjoy at room temp with ice cream-YUM!

Rustic Italian Bread

3 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 tablespoon salt
7 cups all-purpose flour


Directions
1• Add the sugar and yeast to the warm water and let proof.
2• Stir in 4 cups of flour and beat until smooth. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
3• Beat in the salt and then add enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Knead until as soft and smooth. Turn in a greased bowl, cover, and let double in size. (I put it in the oven with the light on - perfect rising temperature.)
4• Once doubled, punch down and divide into three. Place back in the bowl, cover, and let rise.
5• Once doubled again, punch down and form into three fat "footballs." Grease heavy cookie sheets and sprinkle with corn meal. Place the bread on the sheets, cover with a towel, and let rise.
6• Once risen, mist with water and preheat 450 degrees, leaving bread in oven during preheat cycle. Mist loaves with water and turn occasionally while they bake. Bread is done when golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Makes three (3) loafs.

Note: This is the recipe as it came to me (except for the part about leaving it in the oven during pre-heat). I also use a bread machine for the mixing (instead of my hands) and, sometimes I use self-rising flour in case the yeast fails (more likely in winter). Bread will be hard when it comes out of the oven, but softens as it steams from the inside during the cooling process.

Italian 'Butter' Dipping Oil

1/8 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon basil
1/8 teaspoon rosemary
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (or according to your taste)
fresh ground pepper
1 dash red pepper flakes
1 large clove of garlic (crushed)
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 drop balsamic vinegar

Mix together your dry spices. Add crushed garlic to the dry spices. Place on small saucer. Pour olive oil over mixture. Pour a drop of balsamic vinegar in the center and enjoy with your bread!

Desserts

Mock Mint Girl Scout Cookies

(Makes a great Christmas Cookie)

Chocolate flavored melting wafers (NOT chips)
Peppermint Oil (NOT extract)
Ritz Crackers
Sprinkles

Melt chocolate wafers in a bowl in the microwave. Drop 1 - 3 drops of peppermint oil in and mix together. Dip crackers into the chocolate mixture and place on wax paper. Decorate with sprinkles.

Sorry there are no measurements for this recipe...you just keep on melting, mixing, and dipping until you get the amount of cookies you'd like. The amount of peppermint oil depends on how much you like the taste of mint; the oil is strong. I also use reduced fat Ritz crackers. Don't use Low-salt....you need the salt!

Enjoy!

Summer Fresh Lemon Cheesecake
Yield one 8 or 9-inch cheesecake

Crust:
3/4 cup coconut (dried, shredded and unsweetened)
zest of 1 lemon
pinch Himalayan crystal salt
1 3/4 cups hemp seeds
3/4 cup golden raisins

Filling:
3 cups cashews, soaked 1-hour, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup Raw (light) agave nectar
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon extract
1 teaspoon turmeric pinch Himalayan crystal salt
3/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil
2 tablespoons soy lecithin, optional

For the crust: Using a food processor, fitted with the S blade, grind the coconut until its like a coarse powder. Add the lemon zest, salt, and hemp seeds and process briefly to thoroughly mix the ingredients together. Add the raisins and process until the mixture begins to stick together when gently pressed between your fingers. Press the crust mixture into an 8 or 9-inch spring form pan. Place the crust in the freezer while you make the filling.

For the filling: Process all of the ingredients together, except the coconut oil and soy lecithin, until smooth. This could take 5-7 minutes, and you might need to stop every couple of minutes to scrape down the sides of the food processor and make sure its not getting too warm. Add the coconut oil and process until incorporated. Add the soy lecithin and process briefly to mix. Pour the mixture on top of the crust in your spring form pan. Freeze the cheesecake for a couple of hours or overnight. Let it thaw in your refrigerator for at least an hour (or on top of your counter) before serving. Summer Fresh Lemon Cheesecake will stay fresh for up to a week, when stored in an airtight container, in your refrigerator. Or, freeze it for up to 6 months (or more).

Hope is never lost. It exists within you - it is real. It is not a force in and of itself - it is something that you create with every thought, action, and choice you make. It is a gift that you create for yourself.

One suggestion, Ser, on that recipe: Make sure to let it cool before cutting or it gets kinda messy.

Tastes great tho!
