Apple & Pear Tart with Stevia

Apple & Pear Tart with Stevia
This separate apple-pear tart is based on the large amount of the fruit in relation to the very small amount of batter. Do not be surprised by the amount of the slurry. There will be perfect, in my view, result. These ratios give us a light in taste, texture and tart apple calories.
A quick and delicious way to consume fruits, which accumulate in our fridge and enjoy a very tasty dessert for our Sunday breakfast.

Chilli con Carne

Chilli con Carne
Chili con Carne (Hot Peppers with meat) are among the most famous, typical dishes of Tex-Mex (Texan and Mexican) cuisine. There are infinite variations on the basic recipe of this dish, which has its roots in Mexican cuisine and was the dish of the poor Mexican population. For sure it contains meat, hot peppers and spices. The rest -red beans, tomatoes etc.-, probably added in the course of transition in every continent.
It is intensely spicy to very spicy and what you need for this season of the year and for lovers of very spicy flavors. In our house we have one of those lovers and this dish is his favorite. So the more spicy the better. You moderate a little bit the hot doses of ingredients and enjoy it completely plain or on boiled rice, yogurt, mashed or baked potatoes, sprinkled with grated cheddar cheese and tortilla chips or wrapped in tortillas with a little corn and lettuce leaves. Consumed with zest as it is!

Healthy Chocolate Truffles

Healthy Chocolate Truffles
After a long period where most of us indulged in anything that contained more than "a thousand hundredweight of sugar" it is time to enjoy a sweet very different.
For the beginning of the year, in 2016 the first post of Kitchen Stories proposes to you an idea of chocolate truffles, with raw ingredients with no sugar. The joy of pleasure without remorse and lighter feeling of dessert.
Bright aromas of orange and cocoa, with a sour aftertaste from the juice of orange and cranberries. Dried fruits that are used are very tasty and quite sweet. This is why sugar was replaced here by a spoonful of stevia and this is optional because some people can and do not need this extra sweetness.
Members, friends, readers & others we wish you all a hopeful 2016!
