This was originally known as Morgan Hill Garlic Mushrooms, but since more people are familiar with Gilroy name from the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, CA I am posting with the Gilroy name. This was from 1979 contest and oh so good. Marinated mushrooms became very popular in the late 1970's and this is a wonderful recipe highlighting both garlic and mushrooms.
This is the only knish recipe I've made. It always turns out so great and you can alter the filling to suit your tastes. Today I made the dough with yams instead of white potato. I also added some spinach and mushrooms to the filling. I added some dill and thyme to the filling instead of the parsley. The first 6 ingredients are for the dough.
This is a recipe for gluten-free, cane-sugar-free hamantaschen. They don't have a hard sugar-cookie consistency; Rather, they are more like soft, cakey pastries. Delicious! I filled half of my hamantaschen with no-sugar-added apricot preserves. The other half I filled with lekvar, a puree of dried prunes that have been softened in boiling water. You can buy canned lekvar, which has sugar or corn syrup in it, or you can try making it yourself using a traditional recipe but omitting or replacing the sugar.
This recipe has no refined sugars. It uses agave nectar, which is one of the least refined sweeteners available. Though it naturally contains fructose, it is much lower on the glycemic index (GI) than other natural sweeteners, which can makes it more suitable for some diabetics, sugar-sensitive people, low-carbers, and hypoglycemics.

My friend Anita from Canada sent me this recipe. I love how easy this recipe is to make. It is utterly delicious on a cold winter day. If you want to make this a vegan recipe you can substitute the butter for vegan margarine, the cheese for soy or almond cheese and leave out the turkey bacon or use soy bacon.
This was my grandma's noodle kugel and is really easy to make. Leftovers are great cold for lunch the next day! It's a lot lighter than many of the other kugels I saw here, but I'm still looking for ways to make it healthier without changing the taste too much. I've already switched the sour cream & cottage cheese to 'light', and the milk to skim. I'd love suggestions for ways to lighten it even more. UPDATE: In an effort to recreate a sweet topping I tasted on another relative's kugel, I came up with a new optional oatmeal topping. I like it a lot better than the cornflakes or plain.
This recipe combines the distinctive taste and wonderful crunch of celery root with the usual starchy Russet potatoes. I loved the flavor and the texture, they taste wonderful when topped with applesauce. This recipe is gluten-free if you use a gluten-free flour mix instead of matzo meal. These freeze well, so make extra!
A quick, easy homemade applesauce recipe that I served with potato latkes this year. It has no added sugar, which makes it a better option for diabetics and low-carb people and others who avoid cane sugar. But if you prefer a sweeter sauce, add 1/2 cup of sugar. I recommend using 1/2 sweet apples (I like Braeburn) and 1/2 tart apples (Granny Smith, for example). Don't leave out the salt, it's a necessary ingredient for a good applesauce!
The traditional Chanukah jelly donut, made without gluten. So yummy! These can be made without sugar - If you omit the sugar, add 1/4 cup of the flour mix. The flour mix is made of 3 cups white rice flour, 3 cups brown rice flour, 2 cups potato starch (not flour) and 1 cup tapioca starch.
A delicious gluten-free adaptation of a traditional family Chanukah recipe. Serve with sour cream and applesauce. TO MAKE GLUTEN-FREE: The gluten-free rice flour mix I use is 3 cups white rice flour, 3 cups brown rice flour, 2 cups potato starch (not flour), 1 cup tapioca starch - Use just one cup of this mixture. TO MAKE WITH REGULAR (WHEAT) FLOUR: Use only 1/2 cup of unbleached all-purpose white (wheat) flour.
My mom always made delicious challah each week, and I was one of the lucky beneficiaries of her talents. Then I became a teenager, and everything she did was inherently suspect. Sometime in those years (thank G-d, we outgrow them), I came across this recipe for challah and announced triumphantly to my poor mother that her challah had been replaced by a superior recipe. Demonstrating her endless patience and wisdom, she smiled and asked me to share the recipe with her. I did, and she showed both her superior mothering skills and her superior baking skills by making the recipe her own, creating more delicious and nurturing challah than I did. I don't know if it was the recipe or if it is the intention, the love, the blessings she put into it. Either way, here it is, from both of us. You can double this recipe if you want to make enough to take challah with a bracha. Enjoy!!
This sweet stew is a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish dish for Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year). It's a great showcase for fall vegetables and is straightforward enough for even an inexperienced cook to make. Serve in bowls as a stew, or plate it with brisket, roast chicken or roast beef as a side dish.
I got this from a cookbook, though I forget which one, after a long search. This recipe makes a wonderful soft cookie, similar to Ostreicher's; perfect for Rosh Hashanah! My KitchenAid only fits 6 cups of flour, so I halve the recipe and use 5 eggs.
