Dessert night time food storage?
I don’t want to go to sleep with my meal in my stomach. However, because there are no trees to hang from in Southern California, I am concerned about rodents gnawing through my food. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Ben I’ve cooked little amounts of food in my cooking pot and then covered the pot with pebbles to keep the heat in. I’ve had minor success trying the same method, but using a stuff sack instead of a pot instead of a frying pan. It left me with a few little bite holes in my stuff sack, but my food was not ruined as a result.

Preparation: Whip the mousse with the dark chocolate until it is stiff, then refrigerate overnight before serving with whipped cream and chocolate shards if desired. There aren’t many more beautiful dinner party desserts than this one!
- Using a heatproof bowl, place the chocolate, butter, and 75ml warm water (see tip below) over a pan of just simmering water and stir until smooth. With a wooden spoon, gently push the chocolate and butter into the heated water to help it melt, being careful not to stir too much at this point. Remove the bowl from the heat when three-quarters of the butter and chocolate have melted. Stir until the chocolate is melted, smooth, and shiny. Set aside until the mixture is lukewarm. Working rapidly, incorporate the egg yolks into the chocolate mixture, one at a time, using a spatula to do so. In a second bowl, beat the egg whites to soft peaks using an electric mixer, then gradually add the sugar while whisking constantly until firm peaks form
- Stir the egg whites into the chocolate mixture gently, folding in approximately a fifth of the whites at a time, being careful not to knock out the air bubbles in the process. Pour the mixture into wine or dessert glasses, cover with clingfilm, and place in the refrigerator overnight to set
- Before serving, beat the cream (if used) to soft peaks just before serving. Add a teaspoon of cream to the top of each glass and garnish with chocolate shards, if desired
A good rule of thumb is to combine one-third boiling water with two-thirds cold water to get the optimal warm water temperature. More information may be found here. Recipes for desserts More information about this dish may be found here.

Never Put Hot Food In the Fridge, Here’s Why
Have you finished your steaming hot bowl of stew and are now heading to the refrigerator to store the leftovers? Stop! It’s possible that you’ll want to let it drop down to room temperature before placing it in the refrigerator. In our haste to do all of the kitchen chores in a jiffy, we frequently find ourselves storing items that are still warm in the refrigerator. Was it ever brought to your attention that this can be extremely harmful for you and your family? The primary goal of freezing food is to prevent it from losing its nutritional value while also keeping it fresh and uncontaminated for an extended length of time.
- However, it is OK to store slightly heated food in the refrigerator.
- If you must refrigerate food, you should at the very least allow it to come down to room temperature before doing so.
- By storing hot meals in the refrigerator, you put other perishable goods (such as eggs, vegetables and meat) at danger of contamination.
- Shalini Manglani, Nutrition expert from Bangalore advises that “hot food should not be kept out for longer than two hours as bacteria starts to proliferate after this.
- Rupali Dutta, a consultant nutritionist, notes that it is always preferable to keep all perishable foods, such as milk, vegetables, meat, and cooked meals, in order to prevent rotting.
- It also helps to chill the food faster; split the meal into smaller chunks so that it cools quickly and can be frozen sooner to minimize contamination of the food.
As a bonus, this keeps the odors of different meals from mingling together while also keeping bacteria out.
Dutta, frozen food may be preserved for up to almost two months, but it must be checked for edible quality by looking at the color, odor, and taste of the food.
This is not true.
When using an older model, you can opt to take additional measures, such as keeping hot food in airtight containers to minimize condensation and icing on the surface of the food.
If you must store hot food in the refrigerator, avoid storing hot food in large containers that will take up too much space.
They will take longer to cool this way.
Place them in smaller containers to save space.
Before putting the meal in the refrigerator, you can quickly chill it in an ice water bath to keep it cool.
Alternatively, you can leave it on the counter until the steam ceases.
Wrap the hot liquids that you plan to chill in plastic wrap.
Generally speaking, it is always desirable to arrange the containers (whether hot or moderate) in a strategic manner, taking into consideration the gaps between them, in order to guarantee improved air circulation and effective cooling.

How to Keep Baked Goods Moist Overnight
Images courtesy of Jupiterimages/Comstock/Getty Images Fresh baked items are at their finest when served immediately, whether they are hot from the oven or fresh from the bakery down the street. Unless properly preserved, baked products have a tendency to dry up during storage, moving from moist and melt-in-your-mouth to dry and crumbly in as little as a day if not properly stored. Making your favorite baked products moist and tasty while storing them may be accomplished by properly packing them to maintain their moisture overnight.
Freshly baked items should be allowed to cool to room temperature on a rack before storing them. Wrapping a heated object causes the moisture in the box to condense, resulting in a dry inside and a wet exterior, depending on the temperature.
Wrap raw baked items in two layers of plastic storage wrap, or in a single layer of plastic wrapped with a layer of aluminum foil, to prevent them from drying out. Wrap the object securely to ensure that no air is trapped between it and the plastic. Place little baked products such as cookies or rolls in a ziptop bag and push out all of the air before sealing it. Preventing the baked food from drying out early is accomplished by sealing it off from the air.
Place frosted baked products, such as cakes, in an airtight container that has been carefully closed. Plastic storage containers or a cake box can be used for storing items. Cakes with whipped cream frosting and cakes with cream fillings should be stored in the refrigerator.
Baked items with frosting, such as cakes, should be stored in an airtight container that is securely covered to keep out moisture and air. If you need to store something, use plastic storage containers or a cake box. Cold storage is recommended for whipped cream-frosted cakes and cakes with cream filling.
In order to ensure the freshest taste and moistest texture, the baked items should be served within 24 hours of baking. Baked products may be stored for up to three to five days if they are properly wrapped, but they will begin to dry up if they are left out for an extended period of time.
20 Healthy Dessert Ideas To Satisfy Your Night Time Sweet Tooth (Week 30)
I’m sure we’ve all been there at some point. At the end of the day, we all want something to show our appreciation for a job well done. Relax, unwind, and indulge in a sweet tooth indulgence. Whenever things have been going well for a time, it appears that clients are interested in knowing how to keep on track towards the end of the night.

2.Coconut Cream Berries
A teaspoon of canned coconut cream on top of berries or other fruit is a delicious dessert.
3.Baked Nut Butter Apples
Core one apple, fill the cavity with oats, and spread in your favorite nut or seed butter (peanut, sunbutter, nutella almond, etc.) Place on a baking sheet that has been coated with cooking spray and bake for 35 minutes or until the apple is soft (30-40 minutes).
4.Nutella Stuffed Strawberries
Fill cored strawberries with Nutella and serve immediately. In addition, I’ve packed them with a peanut butter yogurt dip that is quite amazing!
5.Magic Shell Banana Bites
Freeze banana in chunks, then combine heated coconut oil (1-2 tablespoons) and 1 tablespoon chocolate powder. Roll the frozen banana in the chocolate mixture, and it will freeze instantly, allowing you to enjoy!
The best way to gain the greatest health advantages is to consume 70% or more of your calories.
7.Plain Yogurt With Vanilla Stevia topped with Dark Chocolate
Desserts made with yogurt are a terrific way to obtain a lot of nutrients while also staying on track. To make your yogurt more chocolaty, mix in a teaspoon of cocoa powder, or sprinkle chocolate chips on top before serving. Plain yogurt, chobani naturals, and siggis are some of my favorite low-sugar options. I do, however, occasionally indulge on higher-sugar types and consume them as a sweet treat. For example, the Trader Joe’s coconut yogurt is a personal favorite of mine.
8.Dark Chocolate covered almonds handful
Or any flavored nut; there are a plethora of varieties available, including cinnamon, chocolate, and honey roasted nuts, among others.

11.Cottage Cheese with fruit
If you like it a bit sweeter, pour a little honey on top before serving.
12.Coconut Peanut Butter Fudge
There are a thousand different freezer fudge recipes, just like there are a thousand different brownie recipes. Every week, I prepare some variation of this and have a tiny piece of it after dinner as a dessert.
13.Mini Protein Shake (other than chocolate flavor)
Simply avoid protein shakes that include a high concentration of vitamins. A high dosage of B-Vitamins, which may be found in many post-workout protein smoothies, may help you stay awake.
14.Chia Pudding or Chia Protein Pudding
When I post a chia pudding dish, I usually categorize it under the breakfast area. Most of the time, what happens is that I consume half of it for breakfast and the other half for dessert. Cocoa coconut chia pudding, chia protein pudding, sunbutter chia pudding, and Butterfinger chia pudding are some of the variations.
As a treat, I really enjoy sun buttersweet potato protein cookies, but there are several protein cookie recipes to choose from online.
Experiment with several recipes until you discover one that you really like!
16.Pumpkin Protein Pudding
I created this multiple times last fall but didn’t take any pictures of it. Combining 1/2 cup of pumpkin with your preferred sweet protein powder will result in a delightful sweet pudding consistency.

Paleo bread recipes frequently use ingredients such as coconut or almond flour, which are abundant in protein and beneficial fats. I prepare paleo bread on a regular basis and eat it for dessert instead of breakfast. You may eat them hot or cold, but I prefer to cook mine for 20 seconds on the stovetop and top them with a slice of salted Kerrygold butter. My favorite paleo bread recipes are chocolate cranberry pumpkin mini loaves, coconut almond paleo bread, and cinnamon raisin paleo bread, among others.
