Chocolate Coconut Ganache Truffles

Chocolate Coconut Ganache Truffles
Kitchen Stories contain a respectable selection of truffles: With black or white chocolate with dried apricots, plums and spices, with cranberries, with nuts and dried fruit and many other ingredients.
This time we chose to recommend a raw food truffles recipe gluten free, with grated coconut, velvety cream and topped with a ganache of black, bitter chocolate with high cocoa content. It is very mild in sweetness and you can use stevia instead of sugar and any chocolate you prefer.

Artichokes with Carrots

Artichokes with Carrots
Classic recipe for this dish. Artichokes fresh, spring, with carrots, potatoes and lemon sauce. If you are a fan of fresh artichoke, I suggest you make this dish!
Older cooks from us, certainly they know it and cook it excellently. But there are newer, which would like to try to make it. It's a bit troublesome with regard to cleaning the vegetables and the artichoke, but it is a tasty and healthy food. The vegetables, sources of vitamins, minerals and fiber, are cooked easily and quickly and still remain juicy and delicious.
