Healthy sweet bites-caramelized pears and chocolate coconut ganache Recipe
  The other day I was at my brother’s house; Cody (his roommate-my dear friend) asked: Do you think this crème fraiche would taste good with some dark chocolate? So I said: Actually that makes me think of caramelized pears, dark chocolate ganache and crème fraiche! What else do we need for that? He asks. The pear you have in the fridge I say, the almonds in the freezer, coconut milk-have any?,  cinnamon and that dark chocolate you have in your hand, ohh some ghee or coconut oil and honey for an additional touch of sweetness. You name it I have it says Cody, even the some coconut milk left over from the other day!   Awesome I say, in just 20 minutes we ended up making this super tasty dessert! Guess what?  Cheap, health supportive nutritious and adaptable for vegans, even diabetics if you make sure it is consumed in moderation and that there is no added sugar in the chocolate.   Check out the ingredients and look at these health benefits: The crème fraiche can be omitted if you are trying to avoid dairy or are vegan. Don’t add the honey and you practically have a medicine for insulin resistance and related disease.    Healthy fats, protein, and cinnamon are all foods that help regulate blood sugar. Almonds are high in copper, zinc, calcium, iron, magnesium, and have been proven to regulate blood cholesterol and blood sugar if consumed with moderation. Coconut oil is another wonder of nature; various studies have shown how it benefits insulin resistance and diabetes as it slows down the entrance of sugars in the blood stream and helps the pancreas secrete insulin. Cinnamon is now-a-day medicated in capsules to lower glucose and triglycerides.  (Not only regulates blood sugar, but cinnamon also will add a sweet flavor to our dessert). Pears are also a good choice among fruits since they are low in carbohydrates and very high in fiber, things you want to find in a snack for a diabetic.   Believe me I could keep on going with the health benefits, but I guess you want to get your hands dirty!

Mint
Begin the ganache a day ahead to allow time for the fresh mint leaves to infuse their flavor into the cream. Need a shortcut? Skip the fresh mint infusion and make plain ganache frosting. Flavor it with a drop or two of mint oil or some peppermint extract, to taste. Adapted from “Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-your-Mouth Cookies” by Alice Medrich.

British Chef  Robert Irvine says “The British Christmas traditions and US traditions are fairly similar in a lot of ways, besides the fact that we Brits say "Happy Christmas" instead of "Merry" and we refer to St. Nick as "Father Christmas." There are some big differences with regard to the food we serve on Christmas Day. One of my favorites that you do not see much in the States is the English Trifle, comprised of differing layers of various sweet flavors such as: fruit, whipped cream, chocolate, and Crème anglaise. This dish has a bit of everything for your "sweet tooth."
