Jewish Whitefish Salad

Saturday, April 10, 2010

Finally! We moved, but it’s not all smooth sailing yet. We’re living out of boxes and we don’t have a kitchen yet. While our perfect kitchen is being built (which we will be talking about soon), I’m going to have to get crafty. I do have many plug-in appliances (rice cooker, toaster oven, panini press, […]

Haroseth Balls

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

The delay in posting was due to technical difficulties. Yes, it’s quite technically impossible to overcome food coma, at least for me. Has anyone found a cure? Passover Seder on Monday night and Tuesday night is the probably cause, but I can’t promise to refrain from this dangerous activity. Isn’t there like a morning after […]

Breadbox Cafe and Two Minute Salmon Salad

Rugelach

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Rugelach, not to be confused with arugula (a lovely peppery green), is a traditional Jewish pastry. To pronounce correctly, you should sound like you’re coughing up phlegm at the end.

Rugelach is the perfect thing to make this time of year. First of all, you can use it for Hannukah or Christmas because everyone loves it. […]

Kasha Varnishkes

Friday, April 17, 2009

Growing up, there were many Jewish delicacies that I truly loved. The nature of them ranged widely including items like smoke white fish (whole or as salad), knishes, wursts, etc. But one of the easiest, most enjoyable items was Kasha Varnishkes.

Carol’s Matzoh Brei

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

On Sunday, we were invited to Carol’s for Matzoh Brei and it was such a treat, surely the best matzoh brei you’ll ever have. I guess this shouldn’t be surprising since this comes from award winning cookbook author (and my mentor), Carol Gelles. Armed with some clear instructions, we came home and replicated it, wrote […]

Matzoh Balls

Monday, April 13, 2009

There can not be a person on this planet who doesn’t like Matzoh Balls, and if there is, I’m not sure I want to meet them! Known in Yiddish as knaidelach, which literally means “dumplings”. They’re super delicious and easy to make.

Schmaltz & Grieven

Monday, April 13, 2009

We realized that we cover many Chinese dishes on FoodMayhem, but with the exception of the recent Matzoh Brei post, we rarely discuss Jewish dishes. Tonight we took on that task full charge. Making quite a few dishes at once.
First things first. One of the key ingredients in Jewish cooking is rendered […]

Matzoh Brei

Saturday, April 11, 2009

There are two standard breakfasts that my family eats during Pesach (Passover): Matzoh Cereal (which is basically cream of wheat, made of matzoh meal) and Matzoh Brei. I absolutely love both! Maybe it’s because I only eat them a few days a year and distance makes the heart grow fonder. Or maybe […]

Chocolate Chip Pecan Mandelbrot

Thursday, April 9, 2009

Every year at Passover, I can’t wait till we get to dessert, mostly because of Bonnie’s (Lon’s mom) Chocolate Chip Pecan Mandelbrot. If you haven’t had Mandelbrot, it’s a cross between biscotti and scones. I love it!
