Andrea's White Chocolate Mousse Recipe
1 lb white chocolate
1 cup whipping cream
3 eggs, separated
1/4 cup brandy
1/4 cup hot water
1 tbsp vanilla
2 oz sugar
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over medium-low heat. It's a
good idea to stand over the chocolate while it's melting and stir
until it has melted completely; take it off the heat immediately.
Whip the cream and set aside.
Pour the brandy and hot water slowly into a bowl with the egg yolks,
whisking briskly as you go until completely mixed. Whisk in the melted
chocolate. Keep whisking even after the mixture is completely
combined; this will help cool the chocolate.
Whip the egg whites and the sugar, adding the vanilla as you beat,
until peaking but not dry. Fold the egg-white meringue into the
chocolate mixture carefully with a wooden spoon. Fold in the whipped
cream. This is the most critical part of the recipe. The key to a
great chocolate mousse is incorporating cooled chocolate into whipped
cream. The chocolate must be cool to the touch or the cream will
separate. Lightly blend the two mixtures until uniform.
The mousse is actually at its best texture as soon as mixed.

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
The case against reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Whilst there is anecdotal evidence that suggests that reduced carb diets can help achieve weight loss, some of this considerable evidence has resulted in much debate between nutritionalists, and their safety has been challenged
Eating more animal-based products may lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which many authorities believe will increase the chance of heart conditions.
Foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a natural compound and one of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is behind the red color of quite a few fruits and vegetables.
Usefully, unlike numerous nutritional compounds, it does not become less effective if cooked but is observably increased in efficacy by the cooking process.
Lycoprene's main advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the chances of developing cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to impede the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
