1. Vampire Drink - Pina Ghoulada
A frothy drink is tempting enough, but one served in a red-rimmed glass is particularly enticing to monsters who drink blood. Corn syrup with food coloring tinges the classic pina colada with a devilish sweetness. Dip the rim of each glass into the red mixture, spinning slowly to coat. Turn glasses upright; the red liquid will drip slightly, then set. Pour drinks, and serve. Drinkers' lips may be stained pink -- much like those of a sated vampire.
Martha Stewart Living Special Issues, 2000

Yield Serves 10 to 12



3 tablespoons corn syrup
1/4 teaspoons red food coloring


20 ounces pineapple juice
1 can (15 ounces) cream of coconut
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup orange juice
10 ounces good-quality rum


Pour the corn syrup in a shallow bowl. Dip a toothpick into the food coloring, and stir a very small amount into the syrup to combine. Hold a glass by the stem, dip rim into the syrup mixture, and turn glass, coating entire rim. Turn the glass upright, allowing mixture to drip down sides. Dip the remaining glasses. Set aside.
Whisk together drink ingredients. Place 2 1/2 cups ice in a blender, and add 1 cup drink mixture. Blend until smooth; add more pineapple juice if mixture is too thick. Repeat with remaining ice and mixture. Carefully pour into prepared glasses; serve.

3. Veal Marsala

A tasty meal with veal

From, "Cooking by the Boot Straps, A Taste of Oklahoma Heaven," published in cooperation with your Daily Inbox Newsletter. 


2 pounds veal or boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
3/4 cup marsala
5 to 6 Tablespoons chicken broth
2 green onions, chopped


Slice the veal thinly. Pound the veal between sheets of waxed paper with a meat mallet. Coat the cutlets lightly with flour. Heat the butter in a medium skillet. Fry the cutlets in the butter for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, reserving the pan drippings.

Add the wine, broth and green onions to the reserved pan drippings and stir to loosen any browned bits. Cook over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until the mixture is reduced by half, stirring constantly. Return the cutlets to the skillet. Cook just until heated through. Serve immediately with hot pasta or risotto.
