Advocaat (Dutch Eggnog) Recipe
1/2 level teaspoon salt
275 g sugar
4 deciliter cognac
1 1/2 level teaspoons vanilla essence, (extract, i think)
Separate the eggs and beat the yolks with the salt and the sugar,
until the mixture is thick and creamy. Beat in the cognac, very
slowly and put the mixture into a double saucepan. Heat gently,
whisking all the time until the advocaat is warm (not hot) and thick.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla essence. Pour
into a jug. Advocaat is served in a glass and eaten with a teaspoon.
It can also be topped with whipped cream.
Also, might I add, that advocaat is nothing like the eggnog here in
America...it is thick and creamy---not foamy at all. Boy, is Advocaat
(I usually get a bottle of it from the Dutch-America store and skip
This delicious Dutch drink is actually eaten with a spoon!

Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
The problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its extremely popular, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one fact that is frequently overlooked, it is very difficult (although not totally impossible) for vegetarians to take up a low carbohydrate diet.
The majority of the undesirable side-effects observed, such as tiredness, stomach disorders, or headaches seem to be just temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and green onion)
The onion and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not much scientific evidence published, allyl sulphides are also thought by many experts to aid in colds, arteriosclerosis and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every diet.
