AKA White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie Recipe
Everybody loves cookies! One type of cookie or another. Some prefer crisp cookies, others prefer them soft and chewy. The other day I posted a Bosskotti (Biscotti) recipe for you which is a dry cookie meant for dipping. Today, I'll share with you my base recipe for various "chip" cookies. In my family it's known as Giulianna's Killer Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe, killer being a descriptive for "the best ever." However, because I 💓 Star Wars...I transformed it into Star Wars Rebels Chopper Chip Cookie Recipe and you can print the free party food label!!! 😁Don't forget you can substitute a gluten-free flour mix, such as Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Baking Flour 1 to 1.

Barely Russian Vegetarian Stroganov Stroganoff AKA Star Wars Supreme Snokeanoff

Supreme Snoke-anoff AKA Vegetarian Stroganoff
Vegetarian Stroganov / Stroganoff AKA Star Wars Supreme Snokeanoff
According to my DNA, I'm less than 1% from the area of Siberia/Russia. And what a great excuse to make a Vegetarian version of Beef Stroganoff. I turned it into Supreme Snokeanoff for a Star Wars Recipe.

Is it any coincidence that RUSSIA has been in the US news recently and I made Stroganov?  Do you think the cooks at the Kremlin ever google Stroganov recipes and will end up making my version of their beloved classic?  

Vegetarian Ingredients for Stroganoff
Perhaps you will be surprised to learn that my family and I eat vegetarian meals about half of the week. I try different vegetarian meat substitutes, as I do prefer them to be soy and gluten free when possible. I actually like the vegetarian substitute for ground beef much better than the real thing.

However, when I eat barbecued meat...it's still the real deal! Oh, but I digress, so here is our family's Vegetarian Stroganoff recipe, AKA Supreme Snokeanoff. Прия́тного аппети́та! (Prijatnogo appetita!)

Star Wars Rebels Hera-shey's Italian Chocolate Cake Recipe

Star Wars Rebels Hera Shey's Chcocolate Italian Cake Recipe
Oh, it's "Synful!" Star Wars Rebels Hera-shey's Italian Chocolate Cake Recipe.

When I get a request to make something, my creative mind shifts into gear and develops a Star Wars and Italian spin on whatever dish I'm kicking up.

Thus, when my best friend requested chocolate cake I immediately knew it would be Hera Syndulla's from the Star Wars Rebels series.

It just so happened I had some imported Italian Buffalo Butter that was sent to me from Cheese Importers in Longmont, Colorado. I had been waiting to use it in something very "Synful," rich, and special. It's this perfect creamy butter. It's nothing like the butter I purchase that is made from cow's milk in America. Butter made from Domesticated Italian Water Buffalo is perfectly lovely in flavor and texture. It's unsalted, but so divine. Where has it been all my life???

Delita Buffalo Milk Butter and Bel Gioioso Mascarpone CheeseAnyhow, my Acquired Italianism is showing. Here is my recipe for chocolate cake. We also have a chocolate frosting recipe from The Star Wars Chef Bretto. You can use whatever type of baking cocoa you desire in the cake. In the US, it's common to find Hershey's Chocolate brand and works for my word play for Hera-shey's Chocolate Cake!

Don't forget the free printable party food label to make eating this cake feel like a Star Wars Holiday!

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup butter, salted

Instructions
1. Cream together softened butter and mascarpone cheese. Add melted chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla extract. Mix well. 2.

Vivaldi and Lemon Balm Tea - My Favorite Natural Focus Solution

Lemon Balm Tea Time to Calm Me
My pot of Lemon Balm Tea in my "The Art of the Brick" cup.
Have you seen Nathan Sawaya's Lego Exhibit?   It's amazing, don't miss it if you enjoy Legos and/or art!
Sometimes I find it hard to focus and I have a couple of tricks which help me on days like this. I thought since I'm implementing them with success right now, I should share them with you, though I may have mentioned them previously.

1. Vivaldi! Oh my goodness, his music always puts me in a great mood and helps me crack the whip on finishing whatever project I've started. Any other Vivaldi lovers out there?  My kids may have been caught laughing at me when they catch me directing the symphony or playing my air violin. More proof of my Acquired Italianism!!! 


2. Lemon Balm tea. I make a pot of Lemon Balm tea with some Stevia thrown in and if anything has my mind stressing out...I find my shelter, my calm. I'm on my second cup now. 😀 I hope your day is going calmly, too!

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, salted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions

In a medium bowl, beat the butter, sugars, almond extract, vanilla extract, baking powder, and eggs until the mixture is creamy smooth.3. Stir in flour and chocolate chips. Mix until well blended. 4. Divide the dough in half and place half on each parchment lined baking sheet. Shape into logs, about 10-12 inches long and 3-4 inches wide. Straighten the edges of the logs somewhat. 5. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Rotate pans on racks half-way through. Remove from oven and let set for 10 minutes. Turn down oven to 325. 6. Using a bread knife or a chef's knife, slice the bosskotti diagonally in about 1/2 inch slices. Slice straight through so that you can place each slice on its side for the second bake. 7. After setting each slice on it's side, return pans to bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 more minutes or more if needed to bake them firm enough to dip. The cookies will set firm as they cool, as well. 8. Transfer to rack to finish cooling and drying for an hour. Then place in an airtight container. Enjoy dipping in coffee, tea, or milk.
