Rice Dishes; HORCHATA

This is a Mexican rice water or rice milk. It is a dessert.

* 1 cup rice, washed 2 quarts water
* 1 cinnamon stick

Sugar to taste Mix together all ingredients; let stand 3 hours. Simmer for 1/2 hour. Puree in a blender and strain through a cloth. Taste for sweetness and add sugar if necessary.
Chill and serve over ice.

Breakfast Recipes; Chocolate Pancakes Recipe

* 2 cups baking mix - can be reduced fat * 1/3 cup dry powdered milk
* 2 T. cocoa powder
* 2 T. sugar
* 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, substitute large chips or leave out, I've used nuts

To use entire mix, add 1 cup water and 2 eggs. To use only half, use 1 1/2 cups dry
mix, 1/2 cup plus 2 T. water and 1 egg. If you are using dried eggs, add corresponding
amount of water to reconstitute the egg product to equal 1 egg.
1/2 mix will make 12 small pancakes. Entire mix will make 24 small pancakes or 16-
18 large pancakes.
Freeze well. Freeze in stacks of three - reheat in microwave for 1 minute 15 seconds.
We particularly like these with Karo (white) syrup, but other syrups and jams will work
as well. Occasionally we also sprinkle on powdered confectioner's sugar. Kids and lots
of grown men like these! Try serving them as an option at your next men's pancake
breakfast at church. You might want to identify them with a sign, as they do turn out
rather dark in color.
I've done these using strawberry drink mix, like Nestle Quick's in place of the cocoa,
and used the cherry flavored chips when I've had them. Try using a few tablespoons
of pumpkin puree and nuts, or a zucchini quick bread batter, or a banana bread
batter thinned to pouring consistency. I often use my blueberry muffin mix to make
pancakes. Try something different in your cooking today. It's fun!
You can package the mix into zip lock baggies for storage or gifts, or use immediately
by adding 1 cup water and 2 eggs. The dry mix will equal apprx. 3 cups. I like this
recipe as an inexpensive gift item to give to those working women on my gift list.

Breakfast Recipes; Cheese Baked Grits Recipe

* 1 cup non-instant grits
* 2 cups water
* 1 cup milk
* 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese -- grated 1/4 cup butter

Cook the first 4 ingredients until very thick. Add the cheese, butter, and Tabasco.
Beat 2 eggs and gradually add the hot grits to them. Pour into 1 1/2 quart greased
casserole and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until moderately browned on
top. To reheat, cover casserole, put in oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Turn off
oven and leave in another 20 minutes. It firms up upon reheating. Also reheats well in the microwave. (you could thrown in crisp bacon, some ham,....I usually just take it as is.
