You can make Rey’s green bread (again)

There’s a new recipe for Rey’s bread, courtesy of the Galaxy’s Edge cookbook and previewed early via io9. While less green than Jenn Fujikawa’s version, as offered by StarWars.com in 2016, it also requires only the ingredients and a microwave.

For the slightly more advanced cook, there’s also a recipe to make your own Ronto Wraps.

Is guacamole canon?!? (It should be.)

Galaxy’s Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook is out November 5.

How to make blue milk

blue-milk

I doubt this is new, but it’s the first I can recall hearing of it, so here you go: How to officially make blue milk. You’d think it would just be a matter of food coloring, but oh no: The reality is much more disgusting: It involves milk, ‘unsweetened blue fruit punch mix’ (uh, Kool-Aid?) and sugar. (You can still use food coloring. These folks did. Or, if you want to get all adult with it, here’s a version with Blue Curacao, amaretto, and coconut rum.)

In any case, thanks, @StarWars. New JadeCon rule: She who wakes up first has to drink the fruit punch version.

May the 4th: Star Wars Day drink recipes

Obi-Wan after a Mary drinkMost people know Mary Franklin as Lucasfilm’s Senior Events Lead extraordinaire who creates the awesome Celebrations we all love. (Along with tons of other events for the company.) But Club Jade knows that her true talent lies in her awesome bartending skills and ability to create awesome Star Wars-themed drinks.

So imagine how happy we were that she has agreed to share a couple of her top secret Star Wars cocktails with us in celebration of Star Wars Day.

The Double Mistryl
1 oz blended whiskey
1 oz gin
1 oz sweet and sour mix
Splash of maraschino cherry juice
Shake with ice; strain into lowball glass or ice or cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.

Sex with a Rodian
2 oz Midori Lemon Liqeur
1 oz sweet and sour mix
Shake together and pour into a lowball of ice
Gently pour in a 1/2 oz of Chambord — it will sink to the bottom
Float: A drizzle of Jaegermeister

As always, don’t overdo it. And be sure you have a designated Wookiee to drive you home after these. You’ll need it!

If you’re going to be the designated driver or if you, like me, aren’t a fan of alcohol, Kristen Hidalgo, who you might know as a key part of the Lucasfilm event team, uses her culinary past to create some fantastic mocktail recipes on the official blog, including improvements on Yoda Soda and Blue Milk.

Is it time for the party, yet?

Turning over a new spit: Cooking with Club Jade

Classic.

I’ve been hanging around fandom a long time. But now, every year brings less and less Star Wars that actually appeals to me. The Old Republic? Not a gamer. The saga in 3-D? Meh. Novels focused on brand-new characters? That’s what the rest of the SF/F section is for. The Clone Wars? No thanks.

And there are so many news blogs out there right now, run by young, fresh names and faces. You don’t need us anymore.

So what’s left that really excites us about Star Wars? Why are we still here? What is the deep dark secret of Club Jade? Continue reading “Turning over a new spit: Cooking with Club Jade”
