1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside. Beat white sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until incorporated; add vanilla extract.
Combine flour and baking powder together in another bowl; stir into creamed butter mixture. Mix milk into batter until smooth. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Next add half the apples and half the brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.
Pour the remaining batter over apple layer; top with remaining apples and add more brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using a finger or spoon.

While mushrooms and celery are cooking, in a large saucepan, melt remaining 5 tablespoons butter over medium heat and stir in flour. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add water in 1/2 cup increments, stirring between each addition to be sure no lumps form. Add beef base and chicken base and bring mixture to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.

Buttermilk biscuits from Kristie Layne
My recipe....3 cups self-rising flower, 3/4 cup lard or Crisco, 1 cup more/less of buttermilk. I don't usually have buttermilk on hand so I take a cup of milk and add a couple tsp of vinegar in it, that will make buttermilk. Anyway, mix the flour and lard in the mixer. I just throw it in my Kitchen Aid and let it mix until the lard is completely mixed in and you have fine granules. Slowly add the buttermilk. Turn on a floured surface and pinch off dough balls and put on greased pan. You can also roll them out and cut them with a biscuit cutter. Bake at 350 until golden brown. I usually bake a few batches, let them cool, throw them in freezer bags, and store them in the freezer. Then when I need some, just pop a few in the microwave for a few seconds. They taste just as fresh as if you had just made them.

Chef's Lo Mein recipe: (He used this to demonstrate knife skills)

I medium onion - chopped.
2 carrots - cut on the diagonal in slices.
2 green peppers - julienned
2 zucchini - julienned and diced (1/2 and half)
8 -12 ounces of baby bella mushrooms - sliced
1/4 of a cabbage - (chopped like grass)

3-5 clove of garlic, minced
fresh ginger - diced (I did a little over a tablespoon)
2 eggs
1 pound spaghetti

Kosher salt
Canola oil
soy sauce
sesame oil

Prep all veggies first (chef put them all on a baking sheet). I used our wok - on 375 for temp. Medium high heat if using a skillet.
Once heated - add some oil to the pan. Add a pinch of salt with each veggie addition! Add each of the veggies in this order one at a time - Onion, carrot, pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, cabbage, bok choi, then the garlic and ginger until fragrent. Add 2 eggs and toss everything around. Add the cooked spaghetti and separate it. Add soy sauce just until the pasta starts to turn a light brown. Add a little honey (a couple of tablespoons) and mix it. Add a little Saracha (the kids added a few tablespoons before I stopped them from adding more!), toss, then turn off heat and add a little sesame oil.
