Okay Shelley !!!!!!!

My "Passionate Coconut Cheesecake" (TA named it for me Ok) was a huge success - there's none left - mainly because daughter and son both took home what was left - and the only reason there was some left was because I also made this:

http://www.aftouch-cuisine.com/recipe/chocolate-fo.....ant-76.htm

This was my cheesecake recipe:

200g coconut cookies, whizzed to crumbs and mixed with

60g butter, melted

Line the base of the 9" cheesecake dish with this and refrigerate.

Meanwhile, whisk together:

300g soft cheese

250g mascarpone cheese

120g creme fraiche (not light)

400g tin of condensed milk

large teaspoonful of Madagascan Bourbon vanilla extract

Pour mixture on to cookie base.

Refrigerate.

Lastly, spread with lime curd.

Everyone said how lovely it was. (Hubby had seconds - a rare event!) However, another dimension we discussed was that perhaps we could have used some coconut cream in the cheese mix.

That'll be the next trial Cool .

Thanks again, Shelley, for the lovely curd recipes - btw, I plan on trying some orange curd this week.

Will report back!

That sounds very ------sweet? 

On the link you gave for the Chocolate Fondants I was reading about Asparagus and found this quote:  'They were first growned up in the King's vegetable gardens'.  There are several Translator's notes which made me smile.  Well worth a read if you need cheering up.

I'll try that again!

Funny thing, TA, it was very creamy - though not over-sweet, surprisingly. The only sweetness added was the condensed milk. I used the stick-whizz attachment of a whisk to blend it together and it became like thick cream - and very more-ish, too. Mmmm

The translation difficulty, I am sure, is what I have, too. (Or maybe I'm trying too hard, who knows!)

In English, we have male and female - and when I was speaking to my neighbours, and referred to wifey and me as 'femelles', her husband rolled about laughing. Apparently 'femelles' only refers to animals - not humans! For some while after, her hubby took the mickey out of her by calling her a 'femelle' ........

The rotter ......

yup, I only found that one out recently; was told it is considered really quite rude to call a woman a femelle!!

However living here, I am continuously making errors; I try to sort them out but..

The recipe looks yummy; I'll make it for daughters b'day in a couple of weeks.

Thx again

Made some orange curd last night - unfortunately not thinking straight and used the same recipe as for lemon curd - erm, it's a little sweet .........

However, my son said it was delicious!!  Ok

The "femelle" comment reminds me of one of Fiona's favourite stores - when a relation of hers had to go and consult a GP in Germany many years ago.

One of the questions during the diagnosis was "How is your manure?"
