This is a Faye Levy recipe for the local weekend paper. Tzimmes can be made with meat or without. We usually have it without, as a side dish, but with meat it makes a great main course, very seasonal with the leaves turning color in the fall. This is not only perfect for Rosh Hashana, it's also great on Passover, and even for Thanksgiving.
I just created this amazing dessert last night in preparation for the upcoming holiday of Rosh Hashana, where we eat apples and honey to ensure a sweet year. It's an icky, sticky, gooey mess that tastes amazing, if I do say so myself!
One of my favorite Naked Chef recipes. I make this often. I just love the trip of boiling up the garlic cloves with the pasta, and then just squeezing them out of their skins and adding them mashed to the dressing.
This is my adaptation of a recipe I found on the BBC website. The preparation can be very therapeutic, there's nothing better at the end of a stressful day then beating the hell out of some innocuous chicken breasts.
I saw this cake made on one of my favorite cooking shows, the BBC's Friends for Dinner. It's by Chef Antony Worrall Thompson, a great cook with a fantastic sense of humor. I just had to get the recipe! I haven't made this cake yet, but plan to do so for the High Holidays coming up.
Tip for oatmeal: make it in the crock pot overnight! It comes out very creamy from the slow cooking, and I love being able to get up and have that hot steamy bowl right away without having to do anything at all. You do have to clean up the crock pot, but you can make a large quantity and refrigerate the leftovers to be heated in the microwave for the next several days. I use two cups of oatmeal at a time, which is enough for four breakfasts (for me, anyway; probably more for people who don't have huge bowls like I do).
