"Submarinos" (Argentinian Hot Chocolate)

(Argentinian Hot Chocolate)
I’ll always remember the first time I drank one of these.  I was in a café in Argentina with my Mormon missionary companion, and some people at another table had clear glass mugs of hot milk. They were pushing pieces of dark chocolate with spoons down into the milk until it melted—a fun process for making hot chocolate.  I asked what it was called and when I was told they were called “submarinos” (submarines) I immediately wanted to order one so that I could sink my own bar of chocolate like a submarine.

Per serving:
1 C whole milk
1-ounce dark chocolate (traditionally about 1- by 3-inches long)

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the milk to scalding.
  2. Pour into a clear glass mug and drop in the chocolate bar so you can sink the submarine.  It will bob to the surface over and over, getting smaller and smaller as you keep sinking it with your spoon.

Easter Babies (Croatian Easter Bread Dolls)

  Easter Babies                                                     ******* Makes 12 Easter Babies These Easter Babies (Croatian Easter bread dolls a.k.a.   primorski uskrsne bebe )  are a new tradition in our family. The egg dying, dough mixing and braiding is so fun for children and grownups—it’s contagious. Traditionally, they are made with red-dyed eggs, but we use the colors we already have dyed. They make sweet gifts and they also look charming laying next to each Easter dinner plate.  This lady  uses naturally dyed eggs for her Easter babies. If you're already making  challa bread , use extra challa dough for these babies (simply make enough dough for 2 loaves, only bake one challa, and use the remaining dough for the Easter Babies).

Challa Bread

Challa Bread *******  Makes 2 loaves My neighbor, Bonnie, grew up with a Jewish friend and learned to love their family traditions, songs and the Hebrew language. Every Sunday she taught our Mormon young women a lot about the Hebrew alphabet and about many Jewish traditions (I was a teacher in Young Women so I got to hear her lessons). Even though she didn't talk about food, her lessons gave me the nudge to learn how to make something I'd always wanted to try . . . challa bread.  Check out h ow to braid a six-strand challa .

Pumpkin Pie-Coconut Cream Ice Cream

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Makes 1 quart I spy some dietary restrictions in my future. The doctor’s verdict will be in within a month, so I was hoping that some of the few remaining approved edibles (including coconut) could turn out something muy bueno. They did. This ice cream is excelente. The gingersnap cookies won’t be an option for the Paleo eater at the table, but everyone else will love them.  Modified from the nourishing gourmet
