Rainbow Cake

Yield: 16 serving

  • 2 boxes White Cake Mix
  • 4 drops Food Coloring
  • 4 packages Cream Cheese (8 oz)
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 5 cups Powdered Sugar (Confectioners Sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla
    1.For the cake, make one box cake mix according to the directions on the box. Separate batter into 3 bowls with roughly about 1 cup of cake mix per bowl. Add desired food coloring to each bowl (purple, blue, green). 

    2 Bake cakes in round pans according to box instructions, but make sure you check the cake about 10 minutes before it’s supposed to be done. With less mix in each pan, they can cook faster. 

    3 Repeat for the remaining colors (red, orange, yellow). You will now have six layers of different colors. .

    4 For the frosting, mix together softened (room temperature) butter and softened (room temperature) cream cheese until well combined. Add vanilla. Combine. Slowly add in powder sugar. 

     5 After the 5th cup of powdered sugar, taste the frosting and see if you would like it sweeter. I tend to use the full 6 cups, but some prefer the frosting less sweet. 

    6 Try to level each layer of cake with a large bread knife. For the rainbow cake especially, if all the layers are level, then they will evenly display when you cut into it. 

    7 Start with the PURPLE layer first. Put the purple layer on your cake stand or plate. Add enough frosting to cover the layer and some to spill over the edges, anywhere from 1/2 to one cup of frosting. Run the flat, straight side of a knife around the cake to smooth out the edges. 

    8 Add the BLUE layer of the cake. Put frosting in the middle, start spreading out frosting with the flat, straight side of a knife so that it covers the cake and falls out over the edges. Then run your knife around the outside edge of the cake to smooth out the sides. 

    9 Put the cake into the fridge for at least 2 hours or freeze for 1 hour. 

    10 Repeat with GREEN layer, then YELLOW layer. 

    11 Put cake into fridge for at least 2 hours or freeze for 1 hour. 

    12 Repeat with ORANGE layer, then RED layer. 

    13 Cover cake with frosting and run the flat, straight edge of a knife around the edges of the cake to smooth out the frosting. 

    14 Once you have finished frosting the cake, add any decorative touches or words that fit your occasion! Good luck!

    Beef Shawarma

    Shawarma is like the ultimate on the go meal. Thinly sliced meat, 
    wrapped in a pita bread with veggies and sauce is a delicious quick meal.

    Yield: 6 serving

    • 2 lbs beef, prime rib is best
    • 1 cup plain yogurt
    • 1/4 cup vinegar
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 1 teaspoon pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 cardamom pods
    • 1 teaspoon allspice
    • juice from 1 lemon
    • 1 cup tahini
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 1/4 cup lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons yogurt
    • 8 loaves of pita bread or 4 large
    • thinly sliced cucumbers
    • thinly sliced onions
    • 1/2 teaspoon sumac
    • thinly sliced tomatoes
    • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
    • pickle slices (optional)

                                        Combine all ingredients except for beef, fillings, and sauce ingredients to make marinade. If it seems a little dry, add a little olive oil 

                                        Add beef, cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours, preferably overnight. 

                                        In a stockpot or large saucepan, cook beef over medium heat for 45 minutes or until done. Be sure not to overcook! If beef becomes a little dry, add a few tablespoons of water throughout cooking duration.

                                        While beef is cooking, prepare the sauce. Combine sauce ingredients and mix well. Set aside. 

                                        Take the onions, tomatoes, cucumbers and sprinkle with sumac. Add other filling ingredients in a large bowl and combine well.

                                        When the beef is done, you can shred it, slice it, or leave into large pieces. As long as it it thinly cut, there is not much difference. I prefer to cut mine into wide strips.

                                        Prepare the Pita
                                        Place enough beef on pita that cover 1/4 of the loaf. Add veggies and pour sauce. Roll like a soft taco or burrito and you have shawarma! You can also stuff the pocket of the pita if you like. I prefer to roll large pitas .

                                        Serving Shawarma
                                        You can serve shawarma with fries, falafel, hummus, or with a salad like tabouleh.

                                                                          See top right.

                                                                          Step 2: Prepare the chickpeas
                                                                          Take a large bowl and put in the chickpeas. Then, pour over enough water to cover the chickpeas and an additional 2 cm more. Leave to soak overnight. In the morning they will look plump and swollen.

                                                                          Step 3: Drain and purée chickpeas
                                                                          Hold the chickpeas over the sink and drain off the water with your hand over the bowl.

                                                                          Now spoon the chickpeas into the blender bowl.

                                                                          Don't overfill the blender! If the blender is small, you will have to do it in batches. If you have a bigger mixer you can do it all at once.

                                                                          Close the blender and pulse a couple of times, then blend on full power until you create a breadcrumb like mixture. Check the consistency by stirring with a spoon. If necessary, blend again on full power until you create a fine purée. Then transfer into a bowl.

                                                                          Step 4: Purée the rest of ingredients
                                                                          Introduce the parsley, coriander, chilli, garlic along with 2 tablespoons of the puréed chickpeas into the bowl of the blender. Put the lid on and blend until well combined.

                                                                          Step 5: Mix and season
                                                                          Spoon the blended mixture into the bowl of puréed chickpeas. Then add the flour, the cumin, the crushed coriander seeds, the baking soda and about one and a half tablespoons of salt. Finally, add some pepper. Combine it all together thoroughly with a spoon. If it looks too dry, a few drops of water can be added.

                                                                          Step 6: Preheat the oil
                                                                          Place the saucepan on the hob and add the oil. Then heat it up on a medium high setting.
                                                                          Step 7: Make the Falafel balls

                                                                          Take a small amount of the blended mixture in your fingertips and mould into small balls. Then place onto a baking tray.

                                                                          This amount of ingredients should make around twenty five to thirty balls.

                                                                          Kept covered, this mixture will keep for one day in the fridge.

                                                                          Step 8: Fry the Falafel balls
                                                                          The oil should now be hot enough to fry. Individually, spoon half the batch of falafel balls into the oil. Allow to fry for 2 minutes until golden brown, stirring with the slotted spoon, so they brown evenly. Then remove and drain on a tray prepared with some kitchen towel. Now repeat the process with the remaining falafel balls.

                                                                          Step 9: Serve and enjoy
                                                                          The falafel balls are now ready! They are usually served inside pitta bread with tahini, humus, or chopped salad.

Place almonds in a single layer in a dry skillet; cook over medium heat, stirring often, until lightly toasted and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Transfer almonds to a bowl to cool. When cool enough to handle, roughly chop almonds.

                                                                                        2. Place racks in upper and lower thirds of oven and preheat to 350°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat butter with both sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl and beaters. Beat in eggs and extracts. Stir in flour mixture on low speed until combined. Stir in almonds, all chocolate chips and coconut.

                                                                                        3. Spoon dough by rounded tablespoons, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets. Bake until edges are brown, 12 to 15 minutes, switching sheets from top to bottom and front to back halfway through. Let cookies cool on sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes, then transfer cookies to racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
