Super simple little cream ‘fat pots’, which are topped with tart raspberries to cut through the rich creaminess. The recipe makes 4 small pots, and can be done in ramekins, but I used little plastic pots which I found on amazon– (ignore the product description that says they are disposable – I wash and re-use them.) Simply wrap in clingfilm and take these babies to work with you!
No long-winded headnote needed here: it’s a creamy, delicious blueberry cheesecake that will make 8 people VERY happy! Enjoy!
Sweet, acidic, creamy… whip this superstar out at your next dinner party (it serves 8), or simply do what I do: slice and freeze individual slices – and save for a rainy day. Just too delicious… sigh…
I first tasted dark chocolate-and-macadamia nut cookies on honeymoon in Malaysia more than 10 years ago. This was LBK (life-before-keto) and Funnyman and I were literally eating our way through Kuala Lumpur and Penang (it’s a foodie heaven!) One afternoon, when strolling through one of the enormous department stores* in KL, we found a mainstream cookie kiosk called Famous Amos. Their dark chocolate and macadamia cookies were sublime – and here I am, still thinking of them 10 years later! My version is chewier than I remember theirs being, but just as fab.
When hosting dinner parties and braais, Funnyman and I don’t make a big deal of our keto journey (unless asked). When hosting, I simply make exact versions of the desserts I serve my guests and serve as normal, making sure we get the keto-friendly versions (this is mainly due to artificial sweeteners which not everyone has a taste for). This past summer, when making little berry meringue baskets for my guests, I whipped up a sugar-free version for the two of us. While my rustic meringue baskets weren’t snow-white like the store-bought versions my guests received, they were still pretty damn tasty and hit the sweet spot. If you prefer to make a mess of this (I mean, to literally make a Berry Mess), simply use the Mini Meringues recipe and mix it all together just before serving… (as opposed to making a pretentious, deconstructed version like I have done here by piping them into baskets…)
