    More good ideas, thank you!! I did lose weight very fast with DD, however I just don't want to stack on 30 kilos and then be stuck with it. And normally I am health conscious so I generally feel better being healthy anyway. I have enjoyed the first trimester and pigging out, but now I don't feel sick so I don't need to. Better for bub if I am being careful about what I eat. Thanks again xoxoox

    Default non sweet dessert

    My turn for ideas. I have racked my brain and can't think of anything.

    It's my mums birthday on Wednesday and I'm cooking dinner. I can't think of anything to make/buy for dessert for her. She is not a fan of sweet things like mud cakes, cheesecakes, pies, flans, puddings.

    What else could I serve? I had thought of a cheeseboard but we are having cheese beforehand with antipasta so I can't do one again after the main course or can I? Besides I'd love to have something other than cheese.

    Help!

    ** edited to say - the recipes I have posted below I have not made so can't be sure how sweet they are **

    Crepes sound delicous, I'm not how they'll go with gluten free flour though? I might make panackes as I can use buckwheat and do a yummy berry sauce.

    Thanks so much for your recipes Sarah, I appreciate that! Those BBQ bananas look very very yummy!

    Thanks everyone.

    Nell there is a gluten free pancake shake mix in the health food section at coles, I hear its not too bad. You could water it down to make crepes I am sure!

    Otherwise here's a recipe I found:

    Delicious Gluten-free Crepes

    (5 servings)

    1 cup brown rice flour
    egg replacer for 3 eggs
    1/4 to 1/2 cup water (My Dad guesses. He says he goes by consistency. The crepe batter should be smooth)
    1 to 2 Tbsp. of oil

    Choose any of following for the topping:

    Your favorite berries (rasperberries / blueberries / strawberries /etc)
    your favorite nuts or nut butter
    maple syrup
    Mix together 1 cup brown rice flour, egg replacer, oil, and water in a bowl. Pour a small amount of batter in a frying pan, and cook each side throughly.

    Crepes should be slightly golden brown when done. Top with nut butter, fruit, and maple syrup.

    Default Nigella's New York Cheesecake...

    Well I just put it all together and its got probably another 4 hrs to go LOL! It takes roughly 4.5 hrs to cook (well 1.5 hrs cooking time, 2 hrs with the temp off and the door closed and then 1 hr with the door slightly ajar, then you can fridge it LOL) and about 40 mins in prep, but I tell you its soooo light and fluffy I am sure it will be worth it. So once we've taste tested it I'll let you know And I'll post the recipe!

    *hugs*

    Ooh sounds good. My question is: how do you stop yourself licking the bowl with raw egg in it? I'm sure I wouldn't be able to resist the temptation!

    OMG it was divine. Sorry I was away all day guys, I guess I should tell you why. Today was a sad day for us, it was my late (he passed in dec. 04) BIL's birthday and the cheesecake was for him as he loved cheesecake. Well it wasn't as "perfect" as I would have liked it to be on the outside, a few cracks here and there. But quite honestly after I put a whole heap of strawberries & blueberries on it it looked fantastic! I whipped up some creme anglais and we had it tonight shortly after when he would have been born, and it was DELISH! I will post the recipe later, as I am about to head off to bed.
