    You work at a cheese cakery? Yay!!!
    It almost sounds so good and tasty at first , then when you hear factory it is all like machine sounding and hateful, then you think about cheesecake again then it's like a friendly machine that makes cakes. Cheese cakes. So then it becomes a cheese cakery. I could see everyone being super happy too. And if a cake gets messed up they can eat it and every one gets happier. How could anyone not love a job a like that.

    I don't know if I could eat a whole tray all at once but I could eat a few. I don't know what it is, I can resist them if I see them at the store but.. I can't hardly help myself when they are baking in the oven.. then they come out smelling all tasty and undulating with various delicious smells, then that icing gets slathered on and its all melty and gooey... Meow.

    So it has sauteed onions and takes a quarter of a day to prepare? How can it take so long and be so tasty sounding at the same time? After that rice got made and some meat was cooked I'd be eating it.. I might try roasting an egg too. Because that sounds fun.. you just toss that egg in the oven at 400 degrees and dance around waiting for it?

    To clarify, I do not work at any cheese cake bakery.

    It was just there was a restaurant called "The Cheesecake Factory" where I probably ate my first cheesecake and inspired me to bake cheesecakes.

    I'm a college trained cook, but in all honestly I just like to create my own things. I have several clients I make candy for; my recipe uses coconut oil for the benefits.

    If you wanted to try to make some...

    1. c sugar.
    1/4 cup coconut oil
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1 dram/ 1 tsp oil flavoring (lorann is a good one)

    Mix first 3 ingredients in small sauce pan, you're going to need a candy thermometer and a whisk. Insert candy thermometer into the sauce pan, making sure that the thermometer doesn't touch the bottom of the pan. Turn your heat onto medium high, you can stir/mix your sugar mix up until it starts to boil!... it boils, you don't touch anymore...

    boil mixture until it's reached slightly under 300oF, then once it's reach this temperature remove from heat and rapidly stir in flavor oil. REMEMBER this mixture will be molten hot!!! DO NOT TOUCH IT!

    pour mixture into heat appropriate molds, or pour on tinfoil until set. There you go, yummy candy.

    @KanaX That is pretty darn near the perfect dessert. Tons of textures and different flavors in each nook and cranny. Mmmmm!

    Here are a few things I've made to get back on track this week. I spent the weekend at a b'nai mitzvah, so that means twice the cakes and twice the sweets were served, haha! I have some coconut flour pancakes, raspberry chia jam, cocoa nibs, pineapple + spinach smoothie for breakfast. For dinner, I have salmon burgers, roasted sweet potatoes, and farro salad. That should calm down the jumpy stomach.

    @evmaster your photos are a temptation...
    To all lactose intolerants out there, there is hope! Lately, when baking something that requires some sort of milk product, I just use the lactose free option and it works! I mean, probably you guys know all about this, but for those who don't, use a normal recipe and lactose-free ingredients!
    @KanaX that looks delicious! I love desserts that utilize apples on the recipe and those look really yummy. You have an autumn feel on your photo that warms the belly of those who see it!
    @Harrumi going to give it a try soon! Thank you for sharing!
    @Ms Littlefish Again, such delicious photos, you really know how to plate up! I need to try to cook sweet potatoes like that, they look tasty!

    Here is my try with hubby, we did a cake from... Our imagination!
    Mixing ingredients like crazy and it actually work xD
    Purple Cake!
    [​IMG]

    Unlike @Ms Littlefish I can't plate, so...
    But it has an heart on it! And it was really yummy, didn't last more than a couple of hours xD

    @Guiguimu D'aww. Thanks! I think the trick to plating is using the right one. Put something on the wrong size plate and it will never look nice! I think your cake looks fine! Sweets are pretty appealing all by itself! :p

    I've also found that plant-based milk works in baked goods just fine. I think milk is used mostly for moisture and richness and isn't undergoing as many chemical reactions as say the salt and baking soda. Even egg and wheat flour have many viable replacements now! Those of course aren't the concerns of lactose intolerants but I really enjoy making low allergy sweets so almost everyone can enjoy them without worrying if it suits their allergies. I use canned coconut milk in a lot of soups/bisque in place of half-and-half. It works pretty well most of the time! There are a few times it doesn't pair well but for most vegetable soups I enjoy it.

    @Ms Littlefish thank you too! ^^ Ahah yep, everything that has sugar on it looks good to me xD

    I never used coconut oil before, only learned about it a couple of months ago but already heard it does wonders... On soup it sounds actually fun! Nowadays, with the amount of healthy replacements there is, we can really enjoy those forbidden desserts with almost no worries. Even for sugar, we can now replace it for stevia, which apparently is more healthy (gotta give it a try)...

    @Guiguimu I use stevia a lot, but a lot of people have trouble with the aftertaste. The aftertaste is a bit bitter, so a little bit of honey or maple syrup can help take the edge of it off. Those two are still added sugars, but replacing even part of the sugar in a recipe with stevia lowers the overall sugar content, of course. A sweetener is still a sweetener, so sweets in moderation still! At least, that's how I feel. Though, it definitely is nice that we can make them a bit bitter for us now. Also, coconut milk for soup, not oil! Though, coconut oil is great for many things as well! That would be a very oily soup, lol.

    @Ms Littlefish read it well, on my head I said milk, dunno why I wrote oil :yswt: Well, sometimes people use oil in soups, like olive oil. Don't know if it would work, tho xD
    Exactly, every type of sweetener should be consumed with caution, I agree with you. Using fruit, like apples or strawberries in desserts also helps to lower down the sugar in recipes, it's also a more healthier option when possible. I only use fruit when these are starting to get... Spoiled? so nothing gets thrown away.

    @KanaX , that looks lovely! I love an omellete with fresh veggies.

    I had this tonight. Fish tacos with a sauce, a tiny bit of cheese, fresh pico and avocado on jicama "tortillas":
