    Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Meatballs
    Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Meatballs

    Makes 18-22 meatballs

    Meatballs

  • 1 ¾ - 2 pounds ground chicken (or turkey)
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Hawaiian bbq sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 1. Position 2 racks near the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 475ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
    2. In a saucepan, combine the ingredients of the Hawaiian BBQ sauce over medium high heat, allow to come to a boil, reduce the heat so it simmers. Let simmer for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the sauce to cool. The sauce will thicken as it cools so don't worry if it looks thin.
    3. In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, garlic, salt pepper, eggs, panko, paprika, and onion powder. Use your hands to mix all the ingredients together. It's easier to tell when the ingredients are combined when using hands. DO NOT OVERMIX, it will result in drier meatballs.
    4. Shape the meat mixture into ball, about 3 tablespoons of meat per ball. You can also do this with an ice cream scoop. Place shaped meatballs on prepared baking sheet. bake for 11-13 minutes or until the meatballs are completely cooked.
    5. Using 2 tablespoons, dip each individual meatball into the sauce. Alternately, you can brush each meatball with the sauce. Place back on the baking sheet and bake for an additional 1-2 minutes. Drizzle or brush with additional sauce as desired.

    Mop selection can be tricky. Here are some tips to help:

    Yarn Type Finish and Nylon mops are used for applying floor finish. Cotton and Blend mops are used for general-purpose mopping.
    Tailband Type Tailbands prevent tangling and improve floor coverage for more efficient mopping. Woven Tailband allows for commercial laundering, while a mop without a tailband requires handwashing or is disposable. End Type Looped End mops reduce fraying and unraveling and are launderable, extending the life of the mop. Cut End mops are more economical but are also disposable.

    Absorbents
    HDi Maddie Absorbents
    Maddie agrees-
    absorbents are the best!
  • GRAY is known as the Universal Absorbent. This will pick up both oil based and water based spills. This is the best choice for almost any situation.
  • WHITE is for oil-based spills such as gas, diesel and solvents.
  • DRIRITE premium absorbent is a quick and easy way to absorb a wide range of liquid spills and leaks around machinery, hoses, pumps, and on floor areas.

    Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse
    HDi Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse

    Makes 4 servings

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (cold)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar (sifted)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (sifted)
  • 1/2 cup hot fudge sauce
  • 1. Place the cold heavy cream in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat on medium speed on 1-2 minutes, or until soft peaks form. Remove the whipped cream to a bowl.
    2. Add the cream cheese and vanilla extract to the mixer bowl (no need to clean it). Mix to combine.
    3. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the sifted powdered sugar and cocoa powder.
    4. Once all of the dry ingredients have been incorporated, turn the mixer to medium high speed and beat until the mixture becomes light - about 2 minutes.
    5. Add half of the whipped cream to the mixture and fold it in gently - this should be a bit of an arm workout. Once the first batch of whipped cream is fully incorporated, add the remaining whipped cream and fold it into the mousse as well.
    6. Warm the hot fudge sauce according to the package directions just until it is pourable - you don't want it to be too hot or it will melt your mousse.
    7. dd a few tablespoons of hot fudge to the bottom of your serving dishes and top with mousse. Garnish with your desired toppings.
    8. Store any leftovers in a refrigerated airtight container for up to two days.
