Dessert foodie selftaught HomemadeChocolateMousse

2 slabs Dark chocolate
5 eggs
100g Caster sugar
170g Unsalted butter


Melt the chocolate in the bowl. Remove from the heat once melted and let it cool slightly. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Beat the egg yolks and most of the sugar together until creamy and pale in colour (keep two teaspoons of sugar to one side for the egg whites).When it has cooled slightly, whisk the chocolate into the egg yolk and sugar mixture.

Melt the butter in a pan over a low heat, whisk the melted butter into the chocolate mixture. If it gets too thick, add a couple of tablespoons of water. In a bowl, whisk the egg whites and the remaining two teaspoons of sugar with an electric whisk until they’re light and fluffy and hold a soft peak. Do not over-beat.

Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture then spoon the chocolate mixture into a bowl or ramekins and refrigerate for about two hours.

Hi everyone, its been a while since I posted.

Potatoes with kidney beans, bacon, coriander, red onion and sour cream served with beef stew

Preheat the oven to 180 and scrub the potatoes, poke holes with a fork, and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour until tender. Remove from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 190. When cool to the touch, slice each potato in half and scoop out the flesh, leaving a ¼-inch lining of the potato in the shell. Drizzle the potato skins with olive oil, salt, and pepper and place the side you down. Roast for 10 minutes, turn, drizzle with more olive oil and a very generous sprinkle of salt, and roast for an additional 10 minutes, or until crispy. Save the scooped out potato flesh for another use.

Kidney bean filling- In a medium bowl, mix together the kidney beans, red onion, garlic, lemon juice, chili powder, coriander, bacon, black pepper and salt.

Pour the kidney beans fillings into the potatoes and garnish with sour cream and chilli explosion salt

Beef stew- Fry the stew, add garlic and ginger masala, babeque spice, salt, tomato sauce and continue frying, then add onion. When it starts sticking to the pot add water. When the beef stew is almost cooked add carrots and cook until the carrots are cooked. Then add a bit of beef and rosemary dry cooknin sauce and simmer for few minutes.

Also cut potatoes into wedges and boil them till soft (banters potatoes are red list im not gonna eat them also )after they soft set them aside in a strainer
While boiling beans and potatoes cut pumpkin into cubes then drizzle with oil and honey then grill it in the oven till soft
On the side cut red and yellow pepper ,red onion,baby marrow/zucchini into big chunks and fry them in a pan with hot oil and immediately after putting them in a pan add 2 tbsp of dry white wine season with salt and pepper fry till wine dissapears becarefull that the baby marrow dont get mooshy
