    I have a few that you might like.

    Chili chocolate cheesecake

    You will need

    Large Xmas cake tin (type with detachable base)
    Tin foil

    3/4 pack digestives
    75 grams butter
    500 ml whipping cream
    600 grms Philadelphia cheese
    150 grms sugar
    600 grms dark chocolate
    1 lemon
    1/2 to 1 teaspoon chili powder - you decide how much depending on your taste

    Crush the biscuits and mix with the melted butter (you can add a couple of ginger snaps if you fancy a change). Pack the mixture evenly over the bottom of the foil lined cake tin. Put in fridge to chill.

    Mix together the cheese, sugar, chili powder and finely grate in the peel of the lemon.

    Whip the cream until firm and add to the mixture and mix well with a whisk.

    Melt the chocolate and add to the mix.

    Mix it all together well and spread evenly over the biscuit base. Chill for 24 hours and it will last a week if kept refridgerated.

    Add a generous splash of baileys to the mixture for a variation.

    Other Versions to try.

    1) Leave out the chili and use white chocolate. Once fully mixed add either 250grms frozen raspberries or finely chopped yellow kiwi fruit to the mix and fold through carefully.

    2) Leave out the chili and make the mixture exactly the same but with milk chocolate. Put 4 crunchie bars in the freezer for half an hour then batter them with a rolling pin in the wrappers. Open and pour the bits into the mixture and mix well. Decorate the top with malteasers.

    These recipes will makes cheesecakes for about 18 generous portions so use a smaller tin and half the amounts if you wish.

    Enjoy and be comforted :smile:

    Latka, I would be willing to prepare you anyway you'd like. But i would have to gut you first. Then skin you and truss you. The final process is your choice.

    I know you didnt mean food for you to prepare. You can go without eatting for at least a year and still have those pudgy cheeks and love handles

    Ultimate Mac & Cheese.

    Preheat oven to 175C.

    Add macaroni to slightly salted boiling water. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes (or until dente). Drain.

    Grate equal quantities of goats cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, Monterey cheese and smoked gouda and add to the just cooked macaroni. The more cheese, the better. Also include a generous knob of butter, a few shots of tabasco, pepper, a splash of worcestershire sauce and enough milk so the sauce is thick like pancake batter (not at all runny). Add to a suitable baking dish.

    Add to hot oven for approx 15 minutes. After 15 minutes remove and sprinkle enough breadcrumbs mixed with parmesan cheese to cover the top of the dish. Cook for a further 15 minutes or until topping is golden brown.

    Remove from oven and leave to sit for a few minutes before serving.

    Baking something comforts me.

    Pannukakku -- oven pancake

    3 1/2 cups milk
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/2 cup flour
    4 eggs
    pinch of salt

    Mix or blend all together into a smooth batter, then pour into a greased pan and bake in oven at medium heat until the center is set. It will be golden brown and bubbly like a cross between custard and pancake. Serve in slices with jam or syrup.

    Muffins

    1 egg
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 cup oil
    2 1/2 cups flour wholewheat is best
    pinch of salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 cups buttermilk
    1/2 cup rolled oats or cornmeal
    1/2 cup of fruit, choc chips, nuts or other goodies

    blend wet ingredients and dry ingredients in two separate bowls. Then fold them together not too vigorously with a spatula. Add water to make a thick dough. Use spatula to fill up six greased muffin cups or one loaf pan. Bake at 425 degrees until a skewer or knife blade inserted into the center comes out clean. They should get quite brown. Serve individual muffins right away and let a loaf cool wrapped in a towel until it can be sliced.
