totally divine recipes that should only be eaten on special
occasions. It tastes fabulous but, like many other dessert
recipes, it is totally unhealthy.

There is no redeeming
feature in this recipe apart from a little nutrition from
Eggs are one of the most
versatile forms of nourishment available.
Nutritionists recommend we eat a maximum of four
eggs per week, although a study by the Harvard
School of Public Health found that there is no
significant link between eating eggs and
developing cardiovascular disease in healthy
individuals. Most eggs sold today are infertile
because there are no roosters housed with the
laying hens. There are no nutritional
differences between fertile and infertile eggs.
Eggs contain all nine essential amino acids,
making them a complete protein food. An egg
shell has as many as 17,000 pores over its
surface. It is said that a mother hen turns over
her egg as many as 50 times per day. This is
done so that the yolk doesn't stick to the
inside of the shell. A fresh egg will sink in
water, but a stale one won't. White shelled
eggs are produced by hens with white feathers
and ear lobes. Brown shelled eggs are produced
by hens with red feathers and red ear lobes.
