My dining hall knows how to do seafood night. Dessert: Rice Krispie and fruit roll up sushi rolls
I discussed this idea years ago with Mandy, Kara, and Satoko in the Hoco! I’m going to pretend they overheard and took the idea from me.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING. AGAIN.
STEPH! WE GOTTA DO THIS!
I AM AMAZE.

This might look like a savoury plate of spaghetti, but friends, this is not spaghetti. It’s a delectable and distinctly German treat known as Spaghettieis.
Invented by Dario Fontanella in the late 1960s in Mannheim, Germany, Spaghettieis typically consists of vanilla ice cream extruded through a modified potato press to give it the delightfully deceptive appearance of spaghetti noodles. The ice cream is placed over whipped cream and topped with strawberry “spaghetti” sauce and sprinkled with either coconut flakes, white chocolate shavings or grated almonds, each of which work well to give the appearance of grated parmesan cheese.
We had the good fortune to try some ourselves a few years ago while travelling around Germany and happily report that it is nothing short of delicious. Sure enough, wherever you order it, it looks like spaghetti and tastes like a heavenly strawberry sundae.
AAAH, I miss this and want it!
Bourbon-Glazed Baked Tofu With Spicy Roasted Red And Sweet Potatoes
“I live in a city apartment and have neither backyard nor deck, therefore no access to a grill. This is my attempt to create a smoky, summery, barbecued tofu using just my little urban oven. I incorporated bourbon in the glaze as a nod to my husband who usually likes his over ice (he liked it this way, too) and maple syrup to play off the whiskey’s natural sweetness. The spicy potatoes are a must. To really up the ante, try making a garlic aioli in which to dip them, and serve corn on the cob with herbed butter to round out the meal.”

Nicole Spiridakis explains how to make an anything-but-rubbery homemade tofu, and shares some delicious ways to prepare it, including:
- Hiyayakko (Japanese Cold Tofu)
- Shiitake-Spinach Udon
- Bourbon-Glazed Baked Tofu With Spicy Roasted Red And Sweet Potatoes
- Edamame Herbed Tofu Dip
and last, but certainly not least, Chocolate-Tofu Pudding!
“I like a good, rich chocolate pot de creme as much as the next person. But in the interest of health, I don’t have that particular treat every day (more like once a week). Still, I do like a dessert after dinner, and I always like chocolate. This chocolate-tofu pudding is a revelation. It contains not a drop of cream (if you’re vegan, make sure to get vegan chocolate chips) but is appropriately decadent nonetheless.”
