Amazing Johnathan’s car collection has been covered by various media outlets over the past several years as the collection has grown. What once began as a collection of two classic cars has taken on a life of its own and become a massive fleet of 27 rare vehicles including a 1932 Pierce Arrow, 1967 Pontiac GTO and a 1972 Dodge Challenger. Amazing Johnathan takes his high-end collection seriously and even employs a full-time mechanic to ensure that all vehicles are street-legal and in pristine condition. When the vehicles are not being driven, the collection is housed in Amazing Johnathan’s 10,000 square foot, climate-controlled warehouse, which is modeled after a drive-in movie theater. Amazing Johnathan is among several other celebrity comedians famous for car collecting including Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld and Tim Allen.

Amazing Johnathan poses with a vehicle from his collection that will be on display for his first-ever car show and sale on Saturday, Dec. 15.

EPICUREAN CHARITABLE FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS PREPARE FAVORITE HOLIDAY RECIPES

 

EPICUREAN CHARITABLE FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

PREPARE FAVORITE HOLIDAY RECIPES

 

The scholarship recipients of the Epicurean Charitable Foundation of Las Vegas (ECF) bring the culinary spirit of the holiday season with their favorite Thanksgiving recipes.

 

A freshman at the Culinary Institute of America in New York City, Ciro Fodera loves to bake his specialty, pecan ginger pumpkin cookies. Before moving to the Big Apple to pursue his love and passion for the culinary industry, Fodera interned in Canicatti, Sicily, as a prep chef at La Torre Home Services.

 

Cheyenne Vallette, a sophomore at the University of Las Vegas, Nev., is majoring in culinary arts management. For a traditional Thanksgiving side dish, Vallette’s specialty recipe is the sweet potato soufflé made with marshmallows. With a genuine passion for food, Vallette hopes to own a pastry shop one day.

 

Pecan Ginger Pumpkin Cookies:
 
Ingredients (3 dozen cookies)
1 cup pecan halves, divided
1 cup 100% bran cereal
1/4 cup light molasses
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar, divided
3/4 cup Powdered Sugar Icing (see recipe below)
3/4 cup candy corn pieces
 
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Remove a couple of the pecan halves; set aside. Finely chop remaining pecans; set aside. Mix cereal, molasses and egg until well blended; let stand 5 minutes. Mix flour, baking soda and spices in separate bowl; set aside.
 
Beat margarine and 3/4 cup of the sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add cereal mixture; mix well. Stir in flour mixture until well blended. Add chopped pecans; mix well. Shape into 36 balls, each about 1 inch in diameter; roll in remaining 1/4 cup sugar until evenly coated. Place, 2 inches apart, on lightly greased baking sheets. Flatten the balls. Insert 1 whole pecan into top edge of dough round for the “pumpkin’s stem.”
 
Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies feel set to the touch. Let stand 1 minute; remove to wire racks. Cool completely. Spread each cookie with 1 tsp. of the Powdered Sugar Icing. Decorate with candy corn, using about 3 pieces on each cookie. Let stand until icing is set.
 
Powdered Sugar Icing:
2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. milk
Mix sugar and milk until well blended.
Note:
If a thinner consistency is desired, gradually stir in up to 1 Tbsp. of additional milk.
 
Sweet Potato Soufflé with Homemade Marshmallows:
 
Ingredients
3 pounds sweet potatoes                                           
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups softened butter                                                         
6 large eggs
1/2 cup self-rising flour                                                 
3 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon                                               
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Marshmallows (recipe follows)
 
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Peel and cube the sweet potatoes. Boil the potatoes in water with the salt until tender. Drain the potatoes and cool to room temperature. Blend the potatoes with the remaining ingredients in a blender. Pour the blended mixture into a 9 by 13-inch casserole pan that has been greased with butter. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes until almost set and lightly browned. Turn the oven up to 400 degrees F. Top the soufflé with the marshmallows and then return to the oven. Continue baking for 5 to 10 minutes until the marshmallows are golden. Enjoy!

EPICUREAN CHARITABLE FOUNDATION CONTINUES CLOTHING AND LAPTOP DRIVE FOR STUDENTS THROUGH AUGUST

EPICUREAN CHARITABLE FOUNDATION CONTINUES CLOTHING AND LAPTOP DRIVE FOR STUDENTS THROUGH AUGUST

Epicurean Charitable Foundation Las Vegas (ECFLV) is continuing to accept donations of new and gently used laptops and new professional business attire for students the entire month of August before the 2011 fall semester begins.

While ECFLV offers financial assistance through scholarships, many of these students do not have the resources to purchase laptops and other necessities, such as appropriate attire for professional networking functions.

“The majority of students within our scholarship program do not have their own computer, or even professional attire to wear to a job interview,” said Kevin Dimond, president of the Epicurean Charitable Foundation. “While our program provides funding for tuition, books and fees; there is still much more that our students need to be successful. Plus, this is an opportunity for our community to come together to help benefit the education of these bright, young students.

Sting Systems, a local leading provider of advanced security and monitoring systems, is donating services to repair and uncover any operating system issues, remove viruses and spyware, and optimize all student laptops for improved performance.

ECFLV will collect laptops and new professional business attire donations for the month of July at the following locations in the Las Vegas Valley. Any remaining clothing and laptops will be re-donated to other children’s and educational foundations by the Epicurean Charitable Foundation.
