Shoyu Chicken Yield: 4 servings 5 lb Chicken pieces 1 cup Low-sodium soy sauce 6 tb Brown sugar 1 Whole dried star anise 2 ts Fresh ginger root, crushed 1 tb Dry sherry Chinese parsley (cilantro) Green onions, chopped (scallions) * * Both ingredients are optional. In a large pan, place chicken with soy sauce, brown sugar, star anise, ginger, sherry, and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer over a low flame, stirring occasionally to make sure that the chicken pieces are all evenly exposed to the seasoning sauce. If you use the Chinese parsley, cook a few stalks with the chicken. Otherwise, use the green onions (scallions) fresh as a garnish. If you want, you can thicken the sauce with cornstarch by removing a tablespoon of the cooking liquid to a small bowl and stirring in about 1 teaspoon cornstarch, mixing well to dissolve. Add the mixture to the cooking liquid after the chicken has been removed and stir over medium heat until the sauce thickens. Pour over the chicken before serving. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Royal Hawaiian Wedding Cake Yield: 12 Servings Ingredients For Cake: 1 1/2 pk Butter recipe cake mix 1/3 c Light rum 6 oz Instant vanilla pudding 1 1/2 c Water 4 ea Jumbo eggs 1/4 c Salad oil Ingredients For Frosting: 6 oz Crushed pineapple w/juice 4 oz Instant vanilla pudding 1/3 c Light rum 2 pt Whipping cream; whipped Coconut; for garnish Mix all cake ingredients for cake and divide into (3) 8 or 9 inch greased and floured cake pans and bake at temperature listed on the box. Divide each layer into 2 layers-so you end up with 6 layers total. Soak the pineapple with the rum for about 30 minutes. Mix in pudding and let sit until in a gelled state. Whip the two pints of heavy whipping cream, (put metal mixing bowl in freezer along with beaters before whipping for best results-I also put pints into freezer for several minutes before whipping too.) Whip cream until firm-watch it so it doesn't become butter-that's going too far! Then fold in the pudding mixture into the whipped cream-carefully. Toast the coconut in oven til lightly browned. Alternate layers of cake with layers of thick whipped cream. Garnish with toasted coconut and cover with plastic wrap tightly and place in refrigerator until the next day. I have found that if you do not wait and let these flavors meld for atleast 8 hours, you end up taking a bite of cake and frosting that has pieces of pineapple loaded with rum .
