    These are Ugly-But-Good cookies, recipe from Smitten Kitchen. It’s basically meringue with toasted hazelnuts, espresso, and bittersweet chocolate chunks folded in.

    Wow....my three favorite flavors together! Must try these!!!

    Cambodian coconut custard baked or steamed in a small squash looks festive, contains a serving of vegetables and you can easily swap sugar for an artificial sweetener.

    Never tried this! Do you use a particular recipe? I used to live in Jakarta and Bangkok, I miss the types of desserts over there :)

    The last time I used a recipe I used this one.

    https://cambokitchen.wordpress.com/2014/09/19/cambodian-pumpkin-coconut-custard-sangkhia/

    Nowadays I just do this.

    Depending on thick the stem is make 4 to 6 incisions with a cooks knife so you can lift off a square or hexogonal piece of pumpkin that is big enough to fit a tablespoon through. If making for two people you can also cut off the stem end of a large butternut squash.

    Use a metal spoon to scrape out seeds and stringy bits. If you have a melon baller, it might be easier to use that as I believe it has a sharper edge. Once cleaned fill up your squash with water and pour into a measuring cup to determine how much custard you need to make.

    Sweeten some coconut milk to taste with sugar or splenda. I use 1 whole egg for every 100 ml of coconut milk. In calculating custard amounts, an egg is approximately 40 ml.

    You should check cooking time from the recipe. I sometimes cook a small squash using the lowest setting of the microwave cooking in 10 minute increments. You need to be careful in the microwave and use a thermometer because custard sets at 70C but curdles at 80C. Steamer is the most dependable method.

    I love pears in all forms... this is just a baked Anjou pear with a little butter and vanilla with homemade whipped cream. In the middle is a preserved walnut. 😋

    Such awesome looking desserts on this thread!

    That looks delish...... preserved walnut? that's a new one for me.

    I made a meringue disk for pavlova with aquafaba for the first time. It works! So folks don't throw away the liquid at the bottom of a tin of chick peas.

    Every time I tried, it just tastes weird. I can easily tell these are not egg whites. The smell and taste.... not for me.

    Torani sugar free vanilla or vanilla bean, start with a Tbs per 4 oz and adjust for taste
    Top with sliced banana

    Torani sugar free vanilla or vanilla bean
    Torani sugar free orange
    Tastes like a creamsicle.

    Torani vanilla
    DaVinci sugar free blueberry (Torani doesn’t have it )
    Fresh blueberries
    Kick it up a notch with crushed graham crackers or your favorite granola.

    The possibilities are endless with all the flavors available. I hated cottage cheese but wanted to incorporate it, so I tried this, now I crave it.

    ALL WITH COTTAGE CHEESE
