Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour for the flavors to combine while you make the pineapple poi and taro chips. 3. Place ¼ cup water in a blender, followed by the xanthan gum. Add the pineapple chunks and blend on high speed until the pineapple is pureed and the mixture is smooth with a sticky consistency. 4. Transfer to a container, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.

Grandma’s Swedish Pancakes Recipe submitted by: Rebecca Reid Recipe Credit: Lavina DeNatale

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. D I R E C T I O N S Set a large non-stick saucepan on medium heat and coat with non-stick spray. 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. Add a few tablespoons (depending on how large your pan is) to your heated saucepan and swivel the saucepan around so the batter covers the entire bottom portion of the pan. This should be a thin coating on the saucepan and should rise up to the edges a little bit. 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. Serve with powdered sugar and melted butter and lemon juice mixture. Also add on any topping of your choice like fruit, nutella, peanut butter, syrup, jam, etc.

INGREDIENTS Pancakes 3 eggs 1¼ cup of milk ¾ cup of flour ½ tsp salt 2 tbps of sugar Lemon Butter 4 tbs of butter 1 lemon powdered sugar

Makes about 3 servings

Korean Barbecue Short Ribs (Kalbi) Recipe submitted by: Paul Washington Recipe Credit: Joyce Washington

DIRECTIONS 1. 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 4 pounds of Korean-style short ribs (LA style cut ribs also works) ¾ cup Soy Sauce 2 Tbsp Sugar 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar ½ onion Yellow onion; chopped 2 stalks Green onion; chopped 2 tsp Ginger; minced 3-6 cloves Garlic; minced 1 Tbsp Honey 2-3 Tbsp Toasted sesame seeds 1 tsp Sesame oil 1 tsp Oil ½ tsp Cayenne 2 Tbsp Mirin aka Rice Wine (or White vinegar)

Moscow Mule Recipe submitted by: Emma Dowling

In 1941, John G. Martin of Heublein, spirits and food distributor in east coast and Jack Morgan, Owner of the Cock’n Bull bar in Sunset Strip, Hollywood met in a bar in Los Angeles. Together they invented Moscow Mule by mixing Morgan’s singer beer with Smirnoff Vodka and lime in order to market the proprietor’s struggling Cock’n Bull’s ginger-beer franchise. They ordered specially engraved copper mugs and Martin set off to market it in the bars around the country. He bought one of the first Polaroid cameras and asked barmen to pose with a Moscow Mule copper mug and a bottle of Smirnoff vodka. Then he would leave one copy of the photo at the bar and take a second copy to the bar next door to show them that their competitors were selling their concoction. Between 1947 and 1950, thanks to their invention, Smirnoff vodka case columns more than tripled and nearly doubled in 1951.

INGREDIENTS ¼ cup lime juice ¼ cup vodka ½ cup ginger beer

DIRECTIONS In a copper mug, pour vodka over ice. Add sugar syrup and lime juice. Top with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with mint sprig and lime slice.

Buckeye Brownie Cookies with Easy Fudge Frosting Recipe submitted by: Chelsea Lightfoot Adapted from Cookiesandcups.com

DIRECTIONS

Buckeye Brownie Cookies Preheat oven to 350°.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl combine brownie mix, butter, cream cheese and egg. Stir until dough comes together, it will be very thick and sticky. I used my hands. Form rounded tablespoons sized portions of dough into balls, placing on baking sheet about 2 inches apart, making an indentation with your thumb in the center of each. In another bowl stir together peanut butter and powdered sugar. Form peanut butter into teaspoon sized balls and press into the indentations in the brownie cookies. Press peanut butter down slightly because the peanut butter won’t spread and you don’t want the cookies to be too tall.

INGREDIENTS Buckeye Brownie Cookies 1 box (18-19 oz) brownie mix ¼ cup butter, melted ½ cup cream cheese, room temperature 1 egg ¾ cup peanut butter ¾ cup powdered sugar ¾ cup chocolate frosting sea salt flakes Frosting 1 cup butter, room temperature ⅔ cup boiling water 1 cup Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder, sifted (you can use regular cocoa powder if you prefer, that tastes great too.) 8 cups powdered sugar 1 tsp vanilla You could also use canned frosting. The cookies also taste great without frosting.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are set, then let cool until they are room temperature. When cooled, top each cookie with about a tablespoon of chocolate frosting and a pinch of sea salt flakes.

Browned Butter Spoon Cookies Recipe submitted by: Madison Mar

Recipe from Food Network Kitchens (www.foodnetwork.com).

DIRECTIONS Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Melt the butter in a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Continue to cook, swirling the pan occasionally, until the butter browns lightly and smells slightly nutty, about 15 minutes. Transfer butter to a medium bowl (be sure to get all the tasty brown bits) and cool. 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.

INGREDIENTS 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter 2 cups all-purpose flour ¾ teaspoon baking powder Pinch fine salt 1 large egg yolk ¾ cup sugar 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract ¼–⅓ cup raspberry jam Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting

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 spoonshaped cookies. Trim excess dough with your fingers and slide out onto the prepared pans, preserving their shape.

51


(Try to make sure you form an even number of cookies, since these sandwich together.) 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. When cool, spread ½ 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. Yield: about 32 sandwiched cookies

Oat Nut Bars with Sweet Lemon Coconut Icing Recipe submitted by: Jason Shindler

Originally posted on http://www.veggienumnum.com/2011/06/oat-nut-bars/

DIRECTIONS Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/356°F Sift the flours into a large bowl. Add the oats, coconut, seeds and nuts and stir to combine well. Combine the baking soda with the warm water and stir to dissolve. Heat the butter and molasses over a low heat in a small saucepan stirring until the butter is melted and combined with the molasses. Remove from the heat and add the baking soda mixture; stir through allowing it to foam. Combine the molasses and butter mixture with the dry ingredients, stirring well until combined. Transfer the mixture into a lightly greased 10 in. x 10 in. non-stick baking tray, smoothing it out to cover the base evenly.

INGREDIENTS ½ cup unbleached self raising flour ½ cup unbleached plain flour ½ cup rolled oats ½ cup shredded coconut ¼ cup sunflower seeds ¼ cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds) ½ cup chopped walnuts 1 tbs linseeds (flax seeds) 3/4 cup dairy-free or dairy butter 2½ tbs molasses (or treacle or golden syrup) ½ tsp baking soda ¼ cup hot water for the lemony icing 1 cup icing sugar ½-1 lemon, juice & zest 1 tsp dairy-free or dairy butter ¼ cup shredded coconut

56


Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the baking tray for 5 minutes before turning out onto a cake rack to cool completely. Meanwhile prepare the icing by combing the sugar, butter and enough lemon juice to bring the sugar together into a runny icing, over a very low heat in a small saucepan. Add enough zest to taste and add the lemon juice a little at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Drizzle the prepared icing evenly over the cooled bars and sprinkle with coconut before the icing sets. Once the icing is set cut evenly into bars. These oaty nut bars should keep well in an air-tight container for 5 days or so. If the weather is overly hot keep them in the fridge to be sure the icing doesn’t melt. Preparation time: 25mins Makes approximately 20 bars
