Pineapple Lhassi!

I've never seen how they make it in the restaurant. If I can find some canned mangoes, I will definitely try it. (I'll try fresh mangoes in July/August. Not sure if you can use fresh pineapple or not.) I think strawberry banana would be good, too. This is a very healthy mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack, too... especially if you don't need to add sugar. (I'm finding I don't or need very, very little -- just to soften the sharpness of the yogurt.)

  • 20 oz can of pineapple without the juice (you can use juice for a thinner lhassi)
  • *1 cup milk
  • *1 cup plain yogurt
  • crushed ice (optional)
  • sugar to taste (optional)

Pineapple Sweet Potatoes

This is another super simple recipe. I serve this at Christmas and Thanksgiving holiday meals and with Curried Salmon and a green salad.

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes or yams
  • * 1 can of pineapple tidbits or slices in natural juice
    (Crushed pineapple does not have enough juice.)

Cook the sweet potatoes. (I nuke them until the skin peels away easily). Peel away the skin and add the pineapple with as much juice as desired. Mash until well blended. You can also put it all in the blender and have the consistency of applesauce. This can be eaten hot or cold.

Makes approximately 8 half cup servings

Curried Salmon

This is a super simple recipe. It takes a little time because the salmon tastes better if you let it marinate in the curry before cooking it. I generally serve this with pineapple sweet potatoes and a green salad.

Shiba's spice is an important ingredient. The yellow "curry powder" easily found in most American grocery stores will not taste as good. If you don't use Shiba's make sure it is an authentic Indian curry powder.

Place the salmon into a plastic food bag (or bowl with a lid that seals) with the spice and shake to cover well. Pour in the lemon juice and shake some more. The spice and lemon juice will make a paste. Let it marinate for at least an hour. Broil on both sides until the fish is done. The spices may char, but this doesn't detract from the taste.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 cups flour
  • tsp. soda
  • * tsp salt
  • * butter, marjarine or butter Crisco
  • * cup granulated sugar
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • peanut butter (I like crunchy)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions: Sift flour, soda and salt together. Cream butter and sugars until well blended but not fluffy. Add egg, peanut butter, vanilla and chocolate chips. Add flour mixture, stirring until well blended

Drop by spoonful about 1 inch apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet and press lightly. Bake at 350F. for 12 to 15 minutes.


  • For a less pourous cookie, roll the dough into a ball before placing onto cookie sheet and pressing.
  • With crunchy peanut butter and chocolate chips, you can't make the traditional criss cross by pressing with a fork.
  • For cookies about 1 to 1 inches across, a melon scoop grabs the right amount of dough.

Potato Salad

When summer is here, it means picnics and cooler foods. We love macaroni and potato salads. There isn't anything terribly unique about these recipes except that, to us, they just don't taste right with anything but Miracle Whip salad dressing, but if you prefer a blander taste, mayonnaise will work.

  • 1+ ONION

Finely chop all the vegetables. Cut the eggs into small pieces. Mix eggs and vegetables with enough Miracle Whip to make it gooey ( C.?) Slowly mix in potatos. It shouldn't be too sloppy when it's all mixed. Salt and pepper to taste. For a little different taste add a sprinkle of dill, parsley and/or garlic to the mix.

This makes a big bowlful and lasts the 3 of us for 2 meals.
