From Denny: Hurricane Bill has been busy in the Atlantic Ocean bringing a deluge of rain to Louisiana this afternoon, delaying my posting. With that much lightning I turn off the computer and wait... and wait... :)

While searching for a great or unusual chocolate recipe I ran across this one from the morning show from NBC called The Today Show. There's a new cookbook out to help you keep or re-acquire, whichever the case may be, that flat belly. But what to do? Give up our beloved chocolate? I don't think so say millions of women worldwide! :)

I once had a really good tofu chocolate mousse as it tasted great and didn't have as much oil to make it as rich as the original recipes do. Now I've run across another version we all just have to try! Take a look as it's simple, fast and easy.

From: Flat Belly Diet Cookbook

Serves: 4

Time: 10 minutes (now that's a winner in my book!)

From the author: As a garnish, pretty chocolate curls turn a humble fruit cup into a restaurant-worthy confection. Making them is as easy as drawing a vegetable peeler along the edge of a bar of chocolate. Use the short wide edge to make small tubular curls; use the longer, narrower edge for thinner, longer shavings.

Ingredients:

• 12 ounces soft silken tofu, drained

• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

• 1\8 teaspoon almond extract

• 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted

• 1\2 cup fat-free Greek-style yogurt

Directions:

1. Place the tofu, vanilla extract, and almond extract in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the chocolate and blend for 1 minute. Scrape the sides with a rubber spatula and blend for 1 minute longer or until incorporated. Pour into a large bowl.

2. Fold in the yogurt just until blended. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tips:

Note: For chocolate semifreddo, place the mixture in a 9" loaf pan lined with foil. Cover and freeze for 3 to 4 hours or until just set. Serve immediately.
