We really like foccacia bread and hate to always buy storemade with their prices. This is a quick & easy method to get homemade foccacia when time is short. You can tailor this recipe to your own tastes by changing the herbs, spices and seasonings. Add some chopped veggies for a different spin on it. I use a store-bought crust, such as Boboli. Can use large pizza crust, as desired.
We had this kugel at seders when I was a child. It has been hidden away for years. Last year we broke it out again and it was a nice addition. Recipe is for a 9 or 10-inch square dish but can easily be doubled into a 9x13-inch dish. Farfel can be substituted for the matzo but I don't know the conversion factor. The original recipe called for a lot of salt and sugar. The amounts can be reduced per one's own taste. Any flavor pie filling may be used. I have had both apple and cherry flavors and both are quite tasty.
This recipe comes from the Jewish Holiday Feasts cookbook and is a recipe for Purim. All times are guesstimates and do not include cool times. These are wonderful as candy or cookies, after dinner or with wine. Kids can help roll up the dough into balls.
This is posted per a request. The recipe is from The World Of Jewish Desserts cookbook. This is a traditional Passover and Purim candy. The candy should be chewy since it is cooked to less than 300F, the temperature at which syrup becomes brittle. Also, the candy is sticky since honey absorbs moisture from the air. Therefore, do not make this on a very humid day (unless you have on the air conditioner). The base recipe indicates to cook until soft-crack stage (280F). Cook times do not include cool times.
This is something fun to do with your children (or yourself) in the winter. It will keep you entertained during those snow days off of school or work. You could even have an art expo in the neighborhood. I saw this in MetroParent magazine.
Saw this made a few years ago on Good Morning America. Thought I'd give it a try. My, oh, my, did it get rave reviews at the Thanksgiving meal. And, of course, it is easy to prepare. It does have a lighter taste than the traditional pumpkin pie. Times do not include refrigeration time.
Saw this made on the Barefoot Contessa and just had to try it. We've now had this for a couple of years for the Thanksgiving meal and it tastes wonderful. And it is so simple to prepare. It does appear "soupy" when finished cooking but will thicken upon cooling so no need to cook until it appears thick and gel-like. Times do not include cool time.
This is posted in response to a request and I have not yet made it. The recipe comes from the "Gifts for the Cookie Jar" cookbook. Times are guesstimates to assemble the jar mix. Substitute a different dried fruit for a different taste.
This is posted per request. The recipe is from the "Gifts for the Cookie Jar" cookbook. I have not yet made these. Times are guesstimates for assembling the jar mix. Note: dried orange peel is generally available in the spice section of a grocery store.
This is posted in response to a request and I have not yet made these cookies. The recipe comes from the "Gifts For The Cookie Jar" cookbook and describes these as light and delicate with cinnamon flavor. Times are guesstimates for assembling the jar mix ingredients.
