Yes, fabulous, smart and kind YOU.

And if it +40 C outside you still can make this recipe.

It is the recipe for the summer of 2020 or any year or any month from now on.

WHY CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES NOW?

Because…let me start again.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen this chocolate truffle (full of alcohol) is your to make any time any place in the future.

It is safe … in quarantine or in our real life.

Although I am not sure what real life is right now?

Are we the fictional story or experiment for some “dreamy writer” in different universe?

Where is the quantum physics when you need it? Tesla are you really dead?

He is not answering so I will have to assume he is dead and in different dimension.

Until I go to sleep…then I will report to you. Just kidding. At this point you know that nobody reports the truth.

Even when they make 26 millions per year. Usually they are sexual predator. (NBC, CBS, ABC…)

No name … just use your imagination.

Well, as you know life doesn’t matter anymore…everything you see or experience might not be the real life.

It can be just the fictional story.

So, if that bitch in your kitchen shows 225 lbs tell her: I am over you, you son of weighted bitch. I am so over you.

And I am going to make this recipe and with that determination we are moving towards the kitchen or

to the balcony (in case you are you are using electric cooktop)

SHOPPING LIST

For this amazing boozy chocolate recipe you will need only 3 ingredients:

  • chocolate
  • heavy cream (33%)
  • vodka espresso

Alcohol used for this recipe

I used premium tall grass espresso vodka made in Winnipeg, Manitoba. You use any kind you like.

Chocolate

What kind of chocolate should you use for this recipe?

If you search internet and if you start reading about what kind of chocolate you should use for making homemade truffles you will see the following names:

Ghirardelli, Lindt, Baker’s, Scharffen Berger Chocolate, Valrhona and so on. If you have the money buy the best you like.

For this recipe I used Baker’s chocolate. (semi-sweet). You can use unsweetened or any kind you like.

To me it is important that you love the chocolate. Of course, if you are worried about calories or amount of sugar, please use the chocolate with 70 % cocoa. My favorite is Lindt.

Since we know what chocolate to buy and alcohol to add we can start making…

IMPORTANT: Don’t use chocolate chips for this recipe.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of pasta do you use for oven baked chicken pasta?

Use pasta that you like and prefer. It can be classic, whole-wheat or gluten-free.

Same answer is when it comes to shape. Use any shape you like (penne, fettuccine, ziti…).

How long do you cook pasta?

I like to use my favorite method which is:

-boil salted water

-add pasta

-boil for 1 minute

-remove from heat

-cover with kitchen towel and lid. (picture 2, in the middle below)

-let it sit for 30 minutes

-remove lid and kitchen towel.

-you have the perfect cooked pasta.

Important:

You can also cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.

What kind of chicken did you use and how much?

I like to use organic chicken. (you don’t have to.) Use the best one you can buy.

My advice to you is to visit your local farmers market. Very often the best and the cheapest chicken your can buy is there.

On top of that you are supporting locals which is super important in my book.

Now to the second part of your question.

The recommended single portion of chicken is 3 to 4 ounces. Also, the question is are you on diet?

Of course you can use 6 or 8 ounces per person if you don’t care about weight.

But if you are looking to by chicken for 4 people the answer is one pound or 425 grams.

Remember when life used to be so simple and so healthy. Fresh air, healthy meals and love in the air.

Why can’t we have that now?

Of course we can. That’s why our post today is about making healthy homemade cheese.

BTW, this is the easiest and cheapest recipe for homemade cheese.

Ready?

making homemade cheese and green whey drink at home

Our first step is shopping unless you have a cow standing in your front yard.

Since you are laughing at me I guess we are going to Superstore.

And your shopping list include the following:

  • Milk (organic if you can)
  • Apple Cider
how to make the best cheese at home

Before you start be sure to have the following:

  • Strainer
  • Cheesecloth

How to make cheese at home?

Ingredients

8 cups or 2 L milk

1/3 cup apple cider

Instructions

IMPORTANT: What kind of milk you are using is very important.

organic milk used for making cheese
organic milk used for making cheese

Don’t use ultra-pasteurized milk because it was so modified that will not produce or form curds.

If you can please use raw milk. (which is more expensive)

Also, you can use milk 3% from the store. (it will work)

So, let’s go back to the process of making cheese.

Pour 2 liters of milk into pot and heat until boils. (stir in order to prevent burning)

When milk boils, turn heat on low and add 1/3 cup of apple cider. Keep stirring.

The mixture will separate into curds and greenish liquid called whey.

If separation doesn’t occur, add more apple cider. (don’t be shy)

Then remove from heat and pour them through a strainer.

Rinse the curds with cold water.

Add salt if you want to use. (add to your taste. You can start with 1 tsp)

After you add the salt, your next step is to wrap the cheese in cheesecloth.

Put something heavy on top of your cheese. ( I used jar of honey). Let it sit for 1 hour.

After one hour transfer your healthy, homemade, delicious cheese to the fridge.

And you are done. Yes, you just made your cheese.

Can you make cheese using store bought 2% milk?

Yes, you can. There is difference in taste but you will never know if you never tasted cheese from the organic milk,

I took the pictures when I made cheese using 2% milk. You can see the pictures below.
