Everybody loves homemade food gifts for Valentine Day.ANZAC biscuitsBy bobrich18There is a bit of a language clash: what in Australia we call a biscuit, ignorant Americans refer to as cookies. But the Cookie Monster does love ANZAC biscuits.
The First World War was inflicted on humanity soon after the colonies on the Australian continent formed a new nation. They thought of themselves as proudly British, and thousands volunteered to fight. The Brit generals, however, didn’t value such colonials, and sacrificed them at Gallipoli, in Turkey. Combined with their brothers from New Zealand, they were put into an impossible situation, and suffered a terrible defeat that nevertheless forged them into the pride of the new nation.
There was no refrigeration yet, and transportation was slow. So, the women back home invented something they could bake for their boys that would last the trip, be nourishing and tasty. Thus was the ANZAC biscuit born.Signature Macadamia Nut Cheese (Mahina Mele Farm)By Breakfield_BurkeyMy dear friends at Mahina Mele Farm in Hawaii, Kollette and Jason Stith, have a certified organic farm which produces both organic Kona coffee, and Macadamia nuts. They are amazing and they ship these products all over the world. Kollette gave me permission to post this recipe as Breakfield and Burkey featured a character in The Enigma Gamers, George, drinking and talking about the great Kona coffee from this farm.

I make these pies to take for gifts, and my friends always love to get one of these pecan pies. I make these pies with Moonshine syrup that I buy at Green Tree Pecans in Powell Texas.
* If you can not find the Moonshine syrup, you can substitute 3/4 c. Dark Karo, and 1/4 c. Maple syrup.
(Just a suggestion, but you can blend in some rum, cognac, or bourbon with the syrup to take it up a notch. KR)
