Spam Musubi Ingredients 5

cups cooked rice, room temperature

5

sheets nori (seaweed)

Instructions

Add Spam slices, coating them in the mixture. When mixture has thickened, remove spam from pan. Lay a sheet of nori lengthwise on a clean surface. Moisten lower half of musubi maker, and place on lower third of nori.

5

Fill musubi maker with rice and press flat until the rice is 1½  inch high. Sprinkle rice with Furikake.

6

Top with slice of Spam. Remove musubi maker.

7

Starting at the end towards you, fold nori over Spam and rice stack, and keep rolling until completely wrapped in the nori. Slightly dampen the end of the nori to seal it.

8

Repeat with the other nine Spam slices, making sure to rinse off musubi maker after each use to prevent it from getting too sticky.

1

Get all of your ingredients ready, tomatoes diced, onion diced and so forth because the recipe goes together fast once the shrimp is cooked.

2

Toss the shrimp in 1 tbsp of the Creole Seasoning, set aside.

3

Fill a pan with water adding salt to season the pasta. When water boils add pasta and cook until al dente.

4

While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil and butter in a skillet. Add the mushrooms and garlic powder when the butter has melted, cook for about 1 to 2 minutes, next add 1/2 cup of the onions and cook for another minute then add the shrimp. Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes or until the shrimp turns pink.

5

When the shrimp has cooked add the cream and the other addition of creole seasoning (the 1/2 to 1 T). Bring this to a simmer then turn the heat down to medium low.

6

Add the cheese, egg yolk, and the tomatoes. Heat until the sauce thickens. The heat needs to be low to keep the egg from curdling.

7

When the sauce has thickened add the other 1/2 cup of onions and the drained pasta. Toss until the pasta is coated. Garnish with extra diced tomatoes and cheese if desired.

Instructions

Instructions (6-8 Servings)

1

Set a large non-stick saucepan on medium heat and coat with nonstick spray.

1

2

Wisk together the eggs in a large bowl and then add milk. Then, in a separate bowl combine the sugar, flour, and salt. Whisk in this mixture little by little to the eggs and milk, until there are no clumps and the batter is creamy.

Combine all ingredients except for ribs in a large bowl or plastic bag, make sure the bag is big enough that it can fit the ribs in later.

2

Mix all ingredients until sugar has dissolved.

3

Submerge ribs in the marinade making sure they are completely covered. Meat can be touching but make sure to mix it so that the marinade gets in between the ribs. Cover the bowl or close the bag with no air so that the marinade is always touching the ribs.

4

Refrigerate for 4 hours, but the longer the better, letting it marinate overnight is highly recommended. Half way through resting, or in the morning if doing overnight, make sure to turn the meat or flip and mix around the plastic bag so that all parts are getting an even marinade.

5

Remove from marinade, wipe or shake off excess marinade on meat, too much excess soy sauce, sesame seeds, or sugar on the outside of meat can burn and give a different flavored than desired. Cook on a preheated grill for about 4 to 6 minutes, or until meat is at desired doneness. Finish up by garnishing with toasted sesame seeds and chopped green onions, though not required.

Ingredients

Flip the pancake when the thin edges start to brown by using a large spatula after delicately peeling the edges, and then the whole pancake from the pan. It should be a very light brown color on the side now facing up. After a little more time when the edges start to get crisp, roll the pancake up and place it on a warm plate.

This recipe was is a family heirloom passed down from my grandmother, to my mother, and then to me. This recipe is one of my favorites and reminds me of my grandmother’s homestyle cooking and is a perfect and sweet breakfast treat.

2

Melt the butter in a small, heavybottomed saucepan over medium heat. Continue to cook, swirling the pan occasionally, until the butter browns lightly and smells slightly nutty, about 15 minutes. Transfer the butter to a medium bowl and cool slightly.

3

Meanwhile, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in another medium bowl. Whisk the egg yolk, sugar and vanilla into the cooled browned butter. Stir the dry ingredients into the butter mixture to make a uniform but crumbly dough that looks like wet sand.

4

Scoop out dough with a small teaspoon (the kind you set the table with, not the ones you measure with). Rock spoon gently back and forth against the side of the bowl, packing the dough into the spoon, then scrape/slide the spoon against the inside of the bowl to make spoon-shaped cookies. Trim excess dough with your fingers and slide out onto the prepared pans, preserving their shape. (Try to make sure you form an even number of cookies, since these sandwich together.)

5

Bake cookies until just browned, about 12 to 15 minutes. Cool almost completely on the baking sheets, and then transfer cookies to a rack to cool.

6

When cool, spread 1/2 teaspoon jam on the flat side of a cookie, and then sandwich together with a second cookie. Repeat until all cookies have met their match. Lightly dust the cookies with the confectioners’ sugar. Serve.
