Heday’s Pizza Mochi

A Japanese take on an Italian classic!

You will need:

Mochi (PLAIN)
Shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat oven to your favorite temperature.
2. Put ketchup on mochi and then shredded mozzarella cheese on top of it.
3. Put mochi on aluminum foil and cook it for 6 mins or so till the mochi gets soft and stretchy.
4. Eat.

Valerie’s Spicy Garlic Surprise

You will need:

16 oz. angel hair pasta or spaghetti
5-6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
10-14 (!!!) cloves of garlic
cayenne pepper
black pepper
crushed red pepper
fresh basil (for garnish)

Finely chop your garlic cloves. Only put them through a garlic press if you are really lazy. Bring large pot of HEAVILY SALTED water to a boil. Water should taste salty. Add pasta and cook until al dente. Don’t overcook your pasta or Valerie and Heday will eat you alive. Drain.

In the meantime, heat olive oil over low heat in a large saucepan. Add garlic and cook until soft. Sprinkle a generous amount of cayenne pepper, black pepper, and crushed pepper flakes over the garlic and oil.

Add pasta and toss, adding additional salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with julienne-cut basil leaves.
