1 1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp vanilla sugar
2 cup milk
9 egg yolks
1 1/2 cup grain alcohol (95-percent)
Mix sugars. Boil milk with half of sugars for two minutes. Let it
cool down. (For the milk it is easiest to use a pot which can later
be used with a mixer.)
Mix well (mixer at high speed) the yolks with the other half of the
sugars. Using mixer add to milk. Then (still using mixer) add alcohol
slowly. (The result is quite fluid, sweet and strong.) Bottle and
let rest for two weeks to let the mixture thicken.
* Egg-cognac: a potent sweet alcoholic beverage -- Advokaat is the
Dutch word for egg cognac. It is highly recommended for A. I.
(Alcohol Imbibing) meetings. This recipe is my modification of a
recipe I obtained in Poland. It makes a potent, superb advokaat (or
egg-cognac). The milk and eggs are healthy, the sugar and alcohol are
not. Yield: Serves 4-8.
* This advokaat can be drunk or, better yet, eaten with a spoon; it
is quite thick.
: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 5 minutes preparation, 2 weeks aging.
: Precision: Measure the ingredients.

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Understand the food labels
Watch out for the food label that proclaims 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the rear of the can or package. Some are only a little less and in some cases still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your tasty chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soy flour, it would be madness to mix in those high carbohydrate standard chocolate. Chop up a reduced carb bar of chocolate into tiny chunks and use that in its place.
Healthy foods with carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and winter squash)
These orange and green vegetables and fruits have high levels of the carotenoids believed play a key role in cancer prevention, spefically cancer of the esophagus. Many are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss program.
