Blueberry and Lemon German Pancakes

Chef Aaron May is in the kitchen making piping hot blueberry and lemon German pancakes. He jokes that no matter how busy he is, there is always time for pancakes! Instead of the traditional pancake that is cooked on a griddle, he places his pancakes in the oven. When done baking, the pancake will be puffy and ready eat. He tops his German pancake with lemon juice and blueberries, but says you can use any seasonal fruit of your choice. If you want a sweeter version, you can always add caramel and chocolate.

Bangkok BBQ Chicken Skewers with Red Curry Street Corn

Chef Arnold Myint from the Institute of Culinary Education is in the kitchen today making delicious Bangkok BBQ chicken skewers with red curry street corn. His recent trip to Thailand to honor his late mother is what inspired this dish. When it comes to the BBQ marinade, he uses coconut milk for a sweeter taste. Remember when you are using lemongrass to bruise it first to help release the oils. Place the chicken thighs and marinade in a Ziploc bag and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight.

DIY Golf Ball Christmas Trees

Maria Provenzano is in the Christmas Corner showing you how to make your own golf ball Christmas trees. Because real golf balls can be expensive, she uses plastic golf balls. For the base, she uses styrofoam cones, that you can find at a craft store or online. Because you are attaching the balls to the styrofoam, use your hot glue gun on a low temperature. She spray paints the balls for extra decoration. When done, she makes a tree topper out of golfing tees.
