Instructions
  1. Form the dough by mixing the flour, egg, water and salt. Knead the dough until it has the same touch as your earlobe. Let it rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Divide the dough into 8 little balls. Spread flour over a clean surface and roll the dough, stretching it into a 6x7 inch rectangle sheet.
  3. Make 30 thumbprints on each rectangle.
  4. Make the filling by combining the yogurt, cheese, chopped parsley and adding a pinch of salt. Add half a teaspoon of filling to the thumbprints on 4 of the rectangle sheets.
  5. Use the other 4 rectantgle sheets to cover the sheets with the filling. Try to match up the thumbprints and seal them around the edges.
  6. Cut 6 strips into each sheet and gently place the strips into boiling water for a minute. Remove with a skimmer or straining ladle.
  7. Raviole taste great on their own or with just a little butter and salt, but you can make it so many different ways.

  2. Make a hole in the middle and crack 3 eggs into it and mix.
  3. Add the butter, lemon juice and orange blossom water. Incorporate into the flour mix and knead.
  4. For two balls of dough and let rest in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight (preferably).

  7. For a more traditional shape, make 1 1/2 long slit in the center of the diamond and take one of the diamond's corners through the slit.
  8. Heat the oil in a deep pan. Temperature should reach 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. Dip beignets in the oil for a few seconds on each side (just enough time to get them to a blond, even color).
  10. Let them dry on a paper towel and for a fun effect, sprinkle confectioner's sugar on them. Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. For best results, bake your cake the day before you want to make the lamingtons. Cut the cake into 21 squares.
  2. To make the icing, sift your sugar and cocoa into a bowl. Mix in remaining ingredients except coconut and stir until smooth and shiny, using a little more water if necessary to reach the right consistency.
  3. Use immediately, keeping the bowl over hot water. Add a little more boiling water if the icing begins to thicken as you work. Dip the squares of the cake into the icing. A carving fork or skewer is useful. Allow to drop for a minute and then roll in coconut. Leave on a wire rack to dry.

Instructions
  1. Set your oven temperature to 275 degrees fahrenheit. Place egg whites and a pinch of salt in a bowl and begin to beat until frothy, increasing the speed until they are stiff and dry. Gradually add sugar, while still beating, until the mixture is very stiff and stands in peaks. With a metal spoon, fold in the vinegar and corn starch.
  2. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a sheet pan. Draw a 9-inch circle on the paper, using a 9-inch plate as a guide, then turn the paper over so the circle is on the reverse side. Pile the meringue into the middle of the circle on the parchment paper and smooth it within the circle, making a rough disk. Bake for 1 1/2 hours. Turn off the oven, keep the door closed, and allow the meringue to cool completely in the oven, about 1 hour. It will be crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
  3. Invert the meringue disk onto a plate and spread the top completely with sweetened whipped cream and cover with your glazed strawberries. Optional: around the holidays you can also sprinkle peppermint chocolate over the top, for an extra minty flavor.

Instructions
  1. Prep your potato mixture by cooking a potato and mashing it with butter. Mix flour and egg with enough water to make a soft dough. Knead well on a flat surface.
  2. Roll out on a floured cutting board or counter until the dough becomes thin.
  3. Cut the dough into squares.
  4. Place 1 teaspoon of potato filling on each square. Fold in half to make a triangle. Pinch the edges well to secure the filling inside.
  5. Drop each triangle into boiling salted water and cook until they rise to the surface. Cook them for five minutes longer.
  6. Remove from the water and place in a colander. Rinse them with hot water. Drain and pour melted butter over the pirohy and serve (with grated cheese if you want!).

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, rinse and carefully drain 8 cups of mochigome rice multiple times until the water runs clear.
  2. Cover with water and leave to soak for a minimum of 6 hours, to a day.
  3. Drain the water out of the soaking rice, shaking to remove any excess water and let it sit to completely drain for 15 minutes. It's better to use a wooden sieve or metal colander vs. a plastic one.
  4. Follow the instructions on your mochi maker and add two cups of water to the reserve area beneath the mochi maker bowl. Attach the bowl and stirring mechanism.
  5. Add the thoroughly drained rice to the mochi maker bowl and even out the top so it's flat. Make sure the cover attachment is locked.
  6. Set your machine on steam. It will automatically go to pound mode when it is ready and the grains of rice can be smashed with your finger.
  7. Watch as the mochigome turns into a glutinous mass when it's pounding. When finished, turn out the big ball of pounded rice onto a table that has been sprinkled with mochiko (rice flour) to avoid sticking.
  8. Very quickly, start forming the mochi into little patties by pinching off a small mound with your thumb and index finger.
  9. You can add anko (sweet red bean paste) in the center for a special treat.
  10. When you are ready to eat your mochi, preheat your toaster oven or oven to broil. Make a dipping sauce made up of 3/4 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of soy sauce mixed together.
  11. On a tray lined with tin foil and sprayed with cooking spray, line up your mochi in rows so that you have at least in inch in between them. As they puff up, this prevents them from sticking to each other.
  12. Cook until the mochi puffs up and gets toasty brown on the top. Do not be surprised if the mochi patties double in size and start melding into each other. You can always pull them apart later. Enjoy!
