DAT DEE

HER

Fruited Angel

This dessert is kind to your health and allows for you to get a serving of fruit into you daily diet. As a kid on our family farm we ate a lot of fresh strawberries for several weeks during the month of June. Mom’s strawberry patch was way to big for our family of four and sometimes we had berries for every meal. My favorite berry desert was when she would make angel food cake. I never remember her making 8 | LAKELIFEOKOBOJI.COM | SPRING 2016

home made angel food cake, but do remember the box mix that required egg whites and she would let the cake cool upside down on a pop bottle. I liked it when the berry juices would soak into the cake. Yum! Sometimes we even had Dream Whip (a substitute for real whipped cream). It was a powdered mix that you added water to and mixed in a small bowl. It tasted horrible, but my youth taste buds didn’t know any better at the time.

Ice Cream Angel

This is my easy go to dessert for a summer gathering. Plus, it is “so good!” Sometimes I bake the angel food cake versus purchasing it. In fact I have two 18 inch Angel Food Loaf Pans. Some girls collect shoes, I collect bakeware. I am single so I don’t need to hide my newly purchased bakeware or cookware in the trunk of my car or sneak it into house and act like I have had it for years. You know exactly what I am talking about girls! This ice cream cake will be a big hit! I guarantee it. If you are not fond of raspberry Sherbert you can substitute any flavor ice cream. I suggest chocolate ice cream and smear some marshmallow cream on each layer and garnish with chocolate sauce or warm hot fudge topping.

Prep Time: 10 min | Serves 8-10

Prep Time: 5 min | Serves 8-10

Baking Time: See Box Mix Temperature: See Box Mix

1 8 oz. Angel Food Cake Loaf PURCHASED 1.75 Qt. Raspberry Sherbet SQUARE CARDBOARD CARTON (will only use about half)

1 Box Angel Food Cake Mix 12 oz. Fresh Raspberries 12 oz. Fresh Blackberries 20 oz. Fresh Strawberries 2 Tablespoons Sweetener Such as Stevia 1. Prepare cake mix according to the instructions on the package and bake in a 10” x 4” Angel Food (loaf) Pan. Cool. 2. Place the fruit in a strainer, rinse thoroughly and let it set for 5 minutes. 3. Mash 6oz. of the raspberries until a consistency of thick apple sauce is achieved. Stir in sweeter. 4. Arrange the fruit around and on top of the cake. 5. Slice cake with a serrated knife and drizzle the raspberry sauce on top. Cyndee Dather is a chef, mother, and adventure seeker with a love of cooking and baking.

If you have any questions or comments about her recipes featured in Lake Life, feel free to contact her at alwaysafish23@gmail.com.

6 oz. Fresh Raspberries 3/4 Cup Raspberry Jam 1. Cut cake into thirds lengthwise with a serrated knife. Each layer will be approximately one inch. 2. Lay a 3’ length of foil on the counter. Put the same size of plastic wrap on the aluminum foil. Place the bottom layer of the cake in the center of the foil/plastic wrap 3. Open up ice cream carton lengthwise. Cut two, 1inch slices of Sherbet and place side by side on the cake. Keep ice cream frozen for best slicing results. Slightly press in 1/3 of the washed and dried raspberries into ice cream layer. Top with another slice of cake and repeat the ice cream and raspberry layering. Place last layer on top. 4. Wrap up the ice cream cake with the plastic wrap/foil. Freeze for at least 4 hours and can be left in the freezer for up to one week. Slice frozen cake and garnish with fresh raspberries and drizzled raspberry jam. If the jam is extremely thick warm it up in the microwave for 30 seconds for easier drizzling.


The Angel Meets the Devil This recipe sounds hard but it can be prepared with success if you read the instructions over several times before you begin. Gather your ingredients and place together for each section of the recipe. I just started making homemade angel food cake. Now that I started, it will be hard to go back to a box mix. The first time I tasted homemade angel food cake was while judging the foods category at the Iowa Woodbury County Fair over 25 years ago. The sweetest 10 year old girl had entered a cake that made all the judges drool. So much in fact that we almost ate the entire cake and there was not much cake left to display with her blue ribbon. Hmmm...I wonder whatever happened to the little girl who made the cake? P.S. There is a zillion calories in each piece of this cake.

Prep Time: 40-50 min | Serves 8-10 Baking Time: 35-40 min Temperature: 350 Degrees 12 EXTRA LARGE Egg Whites ROOM TEMPERATURE 1/3 Cup Warm Water 2 Teaspoons Almond Flavoring 1 1/2 Teaspoons Cream of Tarter 1 Cup Sugar 1 Cup CAKE FLOUR 1/2 Teaspoon Salt 3/4 Cup Sugar 1. Place 1 Cup of sugar in food processor and blend for 1 minute or until sugar becomes fine. Sift 1 Cup sugar, flour and salt all together. Set aside.


2. Place 3/4 Cup of sugar in food processor and blend for 1 minute or until sugar becomes fine. Set aside 3. Combine egg whites, water and almond flavoring in a metal or glass bowl. Using a stand mixer beat on low speed for 3 minutes. Gradually add 3/4 cup of sugar and beat on high speed until soft peaks form. 4. Gently by hand with a spatula stir in sugar, cake flour and salt mixture. 5. Spoon mixture into ungreased 18” Angel Food Loaf Pan. Bake until golden brown and cake is cooked entirely. 6. Invert cake and cool upside down in pan until completely cooled. Once cooled, carefully remove from pan by slipping a knife around the edges of the pan. FILLING 1/4 Cup ROOM TEMPERATURE Butter 2 Cups Powdered Sugar 2 Tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream 1. Mix ingredients in a stand mixer for 1-2 minutes. Cut cake in half lengthwise. Spread filling on bottom half of cake and place other half on top. GLAZE 1/4 Cup Butter 1 Cup Powdered Sugar 1 Tablespoon Heavy Whipping Cream 1. Mix ingredients in a stand mixer for 1-2 minutes. Spread and/or drizzle glaze over cake. GARNISH 6 oz. Fresh Raspberries 1 Egg White Beaten 4 oz. Sprinkles (Wilton White Sparkling Sugar) 2 3.5 oz. Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Raspberry Candy Bars 1. Using a brand new, small craft/artist brush, paint the raspberries gently with the egg white. Sprinkle the White Sparkling Sugar over the raspberries. DO NOT ROLL THE BERRIES IN THE SUGAR AS THIS MAKES THEM SOFT AND OOZIE. Place berries on a parchment lined pan and let air dry for 4-12 hours. DO NOT REFRIGERATE! 2. Gently cut chocolate bars on the scored divisions. Garnish cake and plate with sugared raspberries and candy pieces.

Gardening TIPS & TRICKS

We are not claiming to be experts on gardening so we did a little research. What we found were such simple and brilliant ideas we just had to share them! We can’t wait to try them in our own gardens this year.

1. You can easily repurpose your wine bottles for your garden. Use the bottle to water your soil and the cork to mark your plants. Wash the wine bottle thoroughly and then fill it with water. Quickly flip it upside down, pushing the open end deep into the soil. It will provide a steady supply of water and save you a few days of watering your plant. You can choose to use a green or brown bottle to better blend in with your garden.

processor. Sprinkle the shells around the base of your plants. Store any leftover crushed shells in an airtight container for later use. 4. You can use everyday kitchen supplies to make two easy sprays for your plants. One keeps pests away, and the other kills weeds.

Insect repellent: In a large pot, mix two heads of crushed garlic, 3 cups of crushed mint leaves, 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper and 12 cups of water, and bring to a boil. Let the mixture sit overnight and then strain it into a couple of spray bottles, adding a few squirts of dish soap to each. This should yield 12 cups of liquid. Weed killer: This is as easy as filling a spray bottle with white vinegar and adding a teaspoon of dish soap. Be careful when spraying this solution because it can kill your plants too.

2. Instead of buying plant markers, you can use a Sharpie to write out your plant names on corks. Carefully drill about an inch into the center of each cork and then insert the end 5. The next time you boil or steam of a bamboo skewer into the hole vegetables, don’t pour the water before planting the marker in the soil. down the drain, use it to water potted patio plants, and you’ll be amazed at 3. Crushed eggshells are an effective how the plants respond to the “vegand inexpensive way to enrich your etable soup.” soil and give your plants a calcium boost. They also deter pests like 6. Use leftover tea and coffee grounds snails. to acidify the soil of acid-loving plants such as azaleas, rhododendrons, caRinse your saved eggshells thorough- mellias, gardenias and even blueberly and then spread them evenly on a ries. A light sprinkling of about onebaking sheet, broken-side down, and quarter of an inch applied once a bake them for 20-30 minutes at 200 month will keep the pH of the soil on degrees. Once they’re dry and cool, the acidic side. you can grind them up using a mallet or a food

BOOK NOOK b y

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

In love we find out who we want to be. In war we find out who we are. I was swept off of my feet and transported to 1940s France with this beautiful, multi-layered novel. The Nightingale revealed World War II through a lens I hadn’t seen previously, that of two sisters in France doing whatever they could to survive the Nazi Regime. We enter the story just as the war is beginning in 1939. Vianne is a happily married woman whose husband, Antione is leaving to fight for France. The French people are completely convinced that the Nazis cannot defeat their army, and that Germany could never invade France. They are soon proved terribly wrong, as France quickly falls under Nazi control. Suddenly, Nazis are everywhere, one even housed in Vianne’s own home. As it is still the early stages of the war, it is clear things will only continue to get much more difficult and the decisions she has to make will be increasingly based on survival. Vianne’s sister, Isabelle, is just eighteen when the war begins and she is filled with reckless abandon. She flings herself into the Resistance and defies the Nazis in every way as the war continues. This novel is one I would recommend to absolutely anyone. The reader journeys with Isabelle and Vianne through acts of heroism to horrible atrocities. It is a unique, sweeping tale of women during war time in an occupied country, which is both heartbreaking and eye-opening. This story will stay with you long after you read it.

Fates and Furies by Laruen Groff This highly praised novel has caught the eye of many, including the President who named it his favorite book of 2015. This is no small feat, and neither is the incredible piece of literature that Lauren Groff has constructed with Fates and Furies. One of the reasons it stands out is the uniqueness of the telling of the story year after year, through scene, almost as if it were a play. It’s also told from multiple points of view which is always fascinating to me.

We meet our main characters Lotto and Mathilde when they are young and in love at age 22. Everything is laid out before them to fall into place and the glamorous life they are both destined for seems within reach. We follow these two, year after year, through trials and tribulations seeing a marriage in all stages as 24 years pass throughout the novel. At its core, it is a novel about relationships and how delicate the balance is between reality and façade, between happiness and misery. I’m an avid reader of thrillers, but never have I been so unable to guess what would happen next in a novel. It is, simply put, a wild ride. Groff is a brilliant writer, with skill and language that garnered nomination after nomination for this book. It’s truly a must-read.

The Power of Habit: Why We do What We Do in Life and Business

by Chrales Duhigg A new focus on the importance of harnessing one’s habits has emerged in a big way in our society, and after reading Duhigg’s, The Power of Habit, I understood why. This book delves into habit in every way, from people’s day to day lives, to how major corporations have found success. It’s full of interesting examples to convince the reader of the power of habit. While reading, you will learn about the habits that propelled Michael Phelps to a record-breaking, eight Olympic medals, that helped to create the monster success of Starbucks, that transformed NFL teams from losing record teams to Super Bowl Champions, and so many others. Duhigg also looks at the negative influence of habit through examples in gambling, drinking, and even how sleep terrors are related ultimately to habit. This little book is useful is so many ways with science and years of research to back it all up. If you are looking to change an aspect of your life, or have wanted to do something for a long time but can’t ever make it stick, this is a perfect choice.

LIFE JACKETS

CA PAC I T Y

All vessels must have at least one USCG–approved life jacket for each person on board.

The number of passageners on board (including persons being towed) should not exceed the capacity number recorded on the Registration Certificate and displayed on the right side of the vessel.

USCG–approved throwable flotation device must be on board vessels 16 feet or longer except canoes or kayaks. Children Must Wear Life Jackets: While underway on a recreational vessel on any Iowa waters, a child under 13 years old must wear a USCG–approved life jacket unless the child is below deck or in an enclosed cabin.

BOUYS Obstruction Markers are white with black vertical stripes and indicate an obstruction to navigation. You should not pass between these buoys and the nearest shore. Circles indicate a controlled area such as speed limit, no fishing or anchoring, ski only or no skiing, or “slow, no wake.”

SPEED LIMITS 25 mph between one-half hour after sunset an sunrise on any lake in Dickinson County 10 mph within 300 feet of shore 5 mph within 100 feet of another vessel that is underway at 5 mph or less 5 mph within 50 feet of another vessel that is underway at greater than 5 mph

44 | LAKELIFEOKOBOJI.COM | SUMMER 2016

Crossed diamonds indicate areas off-limits to all vessels such as swimming areas, dams, and spillways. Diamonds warn of dangers such as rocks, shoals, construction, dams, or stumps. Always proceed with caution.


N AV I G AT I O N MEETING HEAD ON Power vs. Power: Neither vessel is the stand-on vessel. Both vessels should keep to the starboard (right). Power vs. Sail: The powerboat is the give-way vessel. The sailboat is the stand-on vessel.

AUTHORITY Officers have the authority to stop and inspect a vessel being launched, being operated, or being moored on Iowa waters to determine whether the vessel is properly registered, numbered, and equipped. ■Officers may board a vessel in the course of an inspection if the operator is unable to supply visual evidence that the vessel is properly registered and equipped.

CROSSING SITUATIONS Power vs. Power: The vessel on the operator’s port (left) side is the give-way vessel. The vessel on the operator’s starboard (right) side is the stand-on vessel. Power vs. Sail: The powerboat is the give-way vessel. The sailboat is the stand-on vessel.

ALCOHOL & DRUGS Iowa law states that a person is considered to be boating while intoxicated (BWI) if he or she: Is under the influence of alcohol or other drug or a combination of such substances or ... Has a blood, breath, or urine alcohol concentration of 0.08% or more or ... Has any amount of a controlled substance present in his or her person, as measured in blood or urine.

LIGHTS Sidelights: These red and green lights are called sidelights (also called combination lights) because they are visible to another vessel approaching from the side or head-on. The red light indicates a vessel’s port (left) side; the green indicates a vessel’s starboard (right) side. All-Round White Light: On power-driven vessels less than 39.4 feet in length, this light may be used to combine a masthead light and sternlight into a single white light that can be seen by other vessels from any direction. This light serves as an anchor light when side- lights are extinguished. In Iowa, an all-round white light is required on manually powered vessels while underway and at anchor.
