The original recipe called for 2 envelopes of cream hardener. That

Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The case against low carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe for you?
Many scientific studies recently have proved that eating excess animal fats can result in increased probability of cancer, heart conditions and other serious illnesses.
Moreover, it has been proposed that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the resulting change in blood acidity levels can lead to bone loss, but some of the scientific studies testing the theory have found no evidence of kidney damage or loss of bone.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, turnip greens and sweet potatoes)
These amazing fruit and veg have high levels of alpha and beta carotenes believed by doctors to help in cancer prevention, particularly those cancers involving the esophagus and stomach. Many also help you lose weight, so you should add them to your weight loss program.
