You dip the butter biscuit (cookie, here in Texas) in CHOCOLATE MILK?? ?? ??
And it doesn't get soggy?? ??
And then you spread frosting on it?? (and it is not soggy?)

I'm having trouble picturing this...are butter biscuits impervious to liquids??
So sorry to have so many questions...please forgive me if I'm being a nuisance  Tongue

I wrote this late at night so I don't know if I forgot to write that you only put them in the chocolate milk for 1 second! NO MORE! and you don't put the bottom one in chocolate milk so it doesn't stick to the plate. I guess you could also do it without the milk but then it would be a little harder to eat in the end. with the milk it has a more caky texture.

but you really have to use the right cookies! you can't make a Petit Beurre cake without Petit Beurre Wink

Well, when I make it, two thirds of the lasagna is vegetable... which makes it quite veggy in my opinion.

well, I always put corn, peas, bell peppers, carrots, tomatoes, tofu and mushrooms in my vegan lasagna so it didn't seem THAT veggy to me  Wink

I don't know that restaurant but I'll give you my two fav eggplant recipes:

1. these are very easy. you just slice 1 eggplant (your slices shouldn't be too thick; mine are always about 1,5cm - don't know how many inch that is Smiley) , 1-2 tomatoes and mozzarella (tomato and mozzarella slices about 0,5 cm) and then you put one slice of everything on everything (eggplant/tomato/mozzarella), add some spices you like and put them in the oven for ten minutes. you can eat them hot or cold (I prefer them hot).

2. for this one you cut your eggplant(s) lengthwise and take out some of the inside so you can add a filling

for the filling I always fry garlic, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, tofu (sometimes) and half of the parts I cut out of the eggplants (the other half is for my guinea pigs Smiley). of course you have to cut all your ingredients before you fry them. you can take as much of everything as you like. I always use A LOT of chili. you can also top these with cheese.

after you've added the filling you put a little oil in a -can't think of the word-, put your filled eggplants in it and then they go in the oven for +/-20 min

I hope you like them and if you don't understand somehting I wrote feel free to ask Smiley

thanks everyone Smiley

and for the chocolate bunnies I just melted black chocolate, filled my icing bag with it, drew bunnies and then put them in the fridge to cool

I might add the recipe with the pic of the inside now - let's see how lazy I am
27  COOKING / Dessert / Just another easter nest? on: April 12, 2009 06:03:44 AM

I made these for easter.
They're made of butter biscuits and vanilla butter cream - no baking
I made the chocolate easter bunnies myself and I love how they turned out Smiley

I'll add a pic of the inside once we eat them if someone wants to see it?




all you need is butter biscuits,
chocolate milk (or sth else), butter cream and any decorations you like

I made five layers so you take 5 biscuits and dip 4 of them in chocolate milk (for 1 second! NO MORE! - the dry one is the bottom), spread every biscuit with your butter cream and put them on top of each other. I did also spread the sides and then rolled them in chocolate sprinkels.
I won't explain how I made the butter cream because I'm too lazy to look up the words  Roll Eyes

you can make them as big as you want. I just made them so small because I wanted to do the nests but normally this is a cake and we just call it "Petit Beurre cake" Smiley

I don't know if what I wrote is understandable. If you have any more questions feel free to ask

EDIT: these are no bake but they go in the fridge for at least 2 hours. I always make them the day before we eat them so I guess 12 hours would be better

C&C welcome!

thanks for looking

when I read the subject I was thinking about lasagna with lots of veggies in it... so where are all the veggies? Wink
29  COOKING / Dessert / Re: bloody birthday cake on: March 24, 2009 03:46:17 AM
thanks everyone for the nice comments (I'm a little late...)
and yes, I made all the chocolate decorations myself Smiley
30  COOKING / Dessert / bloody birthday cake on: January 29, 2009 09:47:38 AM
Today is my youngest brother's birthday and I made him a cake! Smiley
Basically all decoration is chocolate except for the candles and the toy soldiers of course.
I made the blood with orange juice, powdered sugar and red food coloring.

different views:

after the "big fire":

and this is how it looks inside:

the chocolate cake has a strawberry jam filling and the other one a hazelnut spread filling.

Thanks for looking!
