Decadent and Lustful

Chocolate-FigsW1Don’t we all want a little more lust and passion in our lustful lives? If you answered no to this question you were either lying, or you were just lying. Of course we’re all looking for lust and passion in our lives. Sure, you could turn to the movies for some titillating ideas. Or there’s books, for the more cerebral folks out there. Maybe some toys or costumes (or both) are your go to things. The lustful accounts for specialty, just the fact of celebrating this in 2013 is justifiable reason in itself! Who would have thought that the Mayan’s would ever think up this incredible recipe?

My Man’s Belly has a better idea. Hit the kitchen! These lusty figs contain everything you need to get those passion juices flowing. A little sweet, a little alcohol and a whole lotta chocolate. The sexy fig recipe can be found here.

 

Sexy Figs for Love!

Figs and Chocolate

I happen to go with these lines of thought for this “Lustful holiday of hearts.” But I do like to use it as a reminder that we all need a little kick in the butt sometimes to re-calibrate our lust-o-meter, and any day is just as good.

Also if your idea of fig recipes starts and ends with Fig Newtons or cheese stuffed figs wrapped in bacon, prepare to have your mind blown! In my world, fig recipes will begin and end with this one.

Valentines chocolate is one of those aphrodisiac food items that simply oozes sexiness. I’m pretty sure there’s not one other ingredient that I would deem worthy of causing me to be photographed naked for. Remember my chocolate recipe for the charity book Nudie Foodies? Calling these lusty figs, chocolate figs, just does not do this little bite of decadence justice.

We start with a curvaceous fruit, the fig, which is soft and supple. Once opened, the soft center reveals an almost honey scented and flavored flesh. The rich chocolate ganache filling adds a bit of firmness to the soft fig as well as a fullness that escapes into your mouth immediately upon biting into this delicacy. Of course there needs to be a touch of spirits in this treat.

After all, spirits add to seduction….don’t they? So the sexy little figs are soaked in a bath of ruby Port. Not only does the Port add a nice bit of red fruits flavor to the confection, but it helps to soften the dried fig as well. And how are these little treats finished off? They’re enrobed in a thin coat of chocolate so you get a bit of a crunch to go along with all of the softer decadence. Are you drooling yet?

Chocolate-FigsW1

These chocolate figs aren’t your cutesy little Valentine’s Day recipes that you’re probably finding all over the internets or Pinterest. No, these are for grownups. Sexy, lustful grownups that appreciate the art of seduction.

Nothing about this recipe is difficult, it just takes some time to put all the steps together. Think of it as kitchen foreplay.

Oh, and you’ll have plenty of the chocolate ganache left over after filling these chocolate figs. Wondering what to do with it? My suggestion is to take it into the bedroom with you and use it as a unbelievably delicious body paint.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Dairy Free Pasta Alfredo

Dairy Free Alfredo!A little about the history of Alfredo Sauce. Alfredo sauce also known as Fettuccine Alfredo, is a very rich and creamy, dairy based sauce blended with Butter, Heavy Whipping Cream and Parmesan cheese. A dairy lover’s delight, it is usually served over a bed of Fettuccine. Various combinations of Chicken, even occasionally served with ham or bacon. Either way it does not have to include meat. A great variation is shrimp or even steamed clams.

The dilemma however is, what can a non-dairy person like me do to enjoy the wonderful flavor of this culinary wonderland? Well many variations of non-dairy are out there for the culinary appetites but none of them come close to satisfying the essence of a true Alfredo sauce, until now.

I have been an avid consumer of dairy products for some time. With a passionate love for milk, cheese, and ricotta and of course Parmesan and mozzarella, I have countless number of recipes that include one or more of the various types of cheeses, creams, butter and milk.

Since my recent discovery on how milk and dairy affects the digestive system, and since the increasing need to use antibiotics in dairy cows, I have lost the taste or even desire to consume anything to do with milk products.

However my desire for a rich and creamy sauce has not gone away and I spent hours and hours trying to formulate a copy that comes close to the richness and flavor of this Italian staple.

Many trial and errors and countless disappointments I finally managed to create a “Non-Dairy” version of Alfredo Sauce with the same texture and essence. I trust you will enjoy this substitute as much as I.

Please try this at home!

Ingredients;

1 Cup of Almond Milk
½ Cup of Coconut Milk
2 Egg Whites
2 Tbs. of Olive Oil
½ Cup of Finely Crushed Pine Nuts
2 Tbs. of finely chopped Garlic
1 Tbs. Garlic Powder
¼ Tsp. Cream of Tartar
½ Tsp. of Ground Cumin
¼ Tsp. Nutmeg
½ Tsp. Salt

Preparation;

In a glass bowl add 1 Tbs. of Olive Oil, Egg Whites and Cream of Tartar. Whisk rapidly together until egg whites come to a rich froth. Add the coconut milk and whisk some more until well blended, add the almond milk and continue to whisk until the mixture is very well blended.

Heat a saucepan to medium heat, add the remaining olive oil and chopped garlic. Cook the garlic just prior to browning and add the blended egg white mixture from the bowl. In the saucepan whisk until mixture thickens slightly and add the finely crushed pine nuts and dry spices. This will cause the foam of the heated sauce to settle.

Cook until the sauce thickens and serve over pasta or your choice. Add desired pasta toppings and you’re done!

Dinner is served, and sauce is enough for pasta to serve 6 hungry, lactose intolerant guests who have been craving pasta Alfredo for years!

Broiled Basa Fillet with Cashew

Basa and BeetThe Basa fish, Pangasius bocourti, is a type of catfish in the family Pangasiidae. Basa are native to the Mekong River Delta in Vietnam and Chao Phraya basin located in Thailand. These fish are important food fish with an international market. They are often labeled in North America and Australia as “basa fish” or bocourti”. In the UK, the species is known mainly as “river cobbler”,with “basa” also being used on occasion. In Europe, these fish are commonly marketed as “pangasius” or “panga”

 

Even fish aren’t safe from bureaucracy;

In 2002, the United States accused Vietnam of dumping catfish, namely Pangasius bocourti and Pangasius hypophthalmus, on the American market, charging the Vietnamese importers, who are subsidized by Vietnam’s government, of unfair competition.

With pressures from the U.S. catfish industry, the United States Congress passed a law in 2003 preventing the imported fish from being labeled as catfish, as well as imposing additional tariffs on the imported fish. Under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ruling, only species from the family Ictaluridae can be sold as true catfish. As a result, the Vietnamese exporters of this fish now label their products sold in the U.S. as Basa fish or Bocourti.

With all this said, the United Sates Food and Drug Administration is now allowing Genetically Modified Salmon to endanger the wildlife population.  This fish rightfully labeled “Frankenfish” is going to add to the ever so great GMO Labeling issues we are now being faced with.  Not only is the bureaucracy adding to lawmakers job security, the health risks being uncovered from GMO’s being linked to cancer and other life threatening disease is securing the jobs of countless doctors and hospitals, giving the U.S population more issues to deal with.

Personally I’d rather eat a mislabeled catfish than consume what the FDA deems to be a species that’s man made vs. created by our mother earth.

Calphalon Savings!
