Honey Hot Dogs
Honey Hot Dogs
By Jamie Stolper @ 16:00 :: 4781 Views :: 125 Comments :: :: All, Entrees / Main Courses, Meat, Holidays

This is an easy, easy, easy dish that can be an hors d'oeuvre for a larger dinner or a quick treat of a meal for your family.  Kids absolutely love this, but so do the adults.  It tastes best when it is freshly made, so prepare just before serving – it will only take about 10 minutes.

Herb and Spice-Roasted Beef
Herb and Spice-Roasted Beef
By Julie Weisman @ 15:56 :: 3480 Views :: 125 Comments :: :: All, Entrees / Main Courses, Meat, Holidays

This is a recipe for a special occasion, when you want to serve meat, but dressed up in some way. My family and guests have enjoyed the flavors of this recipe, but they are quite strong and a bit unusual for beef. The meat ends up with a nice sort of crusty outside. I usually prepare it a day in advance of cooking it.

Food Editor's Note:
This dish is easy to prepare and makes a very nice presentation. I used rolled Delmonico roasts, but you can splurge and use a sirloin roast as well. The leftover beef is excellent served in sandwiches.

Haman's Ears (Orecchi Di Aman)
Haman's Ears (Orecchi Di Aman)
By Edda Servi Machlin @ 15:52 :: 6617 Views :: 203 Comments :: :: All, Entrees / Main Courses, Holidays, Pareve

For the Italian Jews orecchi di Aman are as synonymous with the festival of Purim as the Hamantachen are for the Ashkenazim. There are perhaps as many versions of this sweet as there are Jewish families in Italy. I regard this recipe as the finest. From this basic recipe you can create variations limited only by your own imagination.

Grilled Country Bread with Tomato
Grilled Country Bread with Tomato
By Lisa Chodosh @ 15:48 :: 25168 Views :: 1586 Comments :: :: All, Entrees / Main Courses, Poultry, Holidays

This easy treat is adapted from the traditional Catalan recipe, Pa amb Tomaquet, which translates simply to Bread and Tomato. In Barcelona and the surrounding countryside it is eaten both as a snack and as an accompaniment to meals. It also makes a delicious and portable breakfast. Use the most fresh and fragrant tomatoes you can get your hands on. Never refrigerate tomatoes - it spoils their delicate texture and flavor.

Glazed Corned Beef
Glazed Corned Beef
By Jamie Stolper @ 15:37 :: 9595 Views :: 344 Comments :: :: All, Entrees / Main Courses, Meat, Holidays

This is a wonderful dish to serve company, because it is easy to make, can be made in advance, and is not a run-of-the-mill entrée. It is great for fancy buffets or casual sandwich meals and will elicit oohs and aahs from your guests, guaranteed. Serve the corned beef with a good quality roll, half-sour pickles, and, on Chanukah, potato latkes and applesauce.

 

Thanks to Julie's Auntie Barbara for the basic recipe. She cooks the corned beef in a pressure cooker, as do I, but you can also make it in a regular pot. The ingredients for the glaze are not hard and fast. Try adding a few teaspoons of a bottled sweet and tangy glaze, a half-cup of pineapple juice (instead of some of the ginger ale), or, to dress up the dish, canned pineapple or mandarin oranges. The sugar and fruit will add sweetness, the mustard provides the tang, and the overall effect is pure gustatory delight

Gazpacho II- Made with Fresh Tomatoes
Gazpacho II- Made with Fresh Tomatoes
By Frances Stolper @ 15:28 :: 12650 Views :: 1397 Comments :: :: All, Soups, Entrees / Main Courses, Holidays, Pareve, Vegetarian

This is easy and delicious. I sometimes add any of the following: 1/2 cup frozen or canned corn niblets, thinly sliced avocado, small can of crushed pineapple. This is best if served after being refrigerated for at least a day. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and chopped basil if you like.

Food Editor’s Note: Everyone who tasted this gazpacho loved it. I added some diced avocado to my own serving and enjoyed the contrast in textures between the crunchy vegetables and the smooth avocado. Serve the gazpacho in a large glass bowl or cookie jar for a colorful presentation.

Gazpacho
Gazpacho
By host @ 15:27 :: 3499 Views :: 116 Comments :: :: All, Soups, Entrees / Main Courses, Holidays, Pareve

This gazpacho is the best ever, says my son-in-law, David. (And he has a very discriminating palate.) Prepare this cold soup a day or two before serving to allow the flavors to blend. Garnish with croutons, diced pepper, or diced cucumber. Gazpacho makes a refreshing summer appetizer. Served with salad and bread sticks, it makes a delicious summer lunch. It keeps well in the refrigerator for many days, if it lasts that long. Enjoy.

This is easy to prepare and have on hand in the refrigerator.  Use it on sandwiches or to accompany grilled fish or chicken.  Serve it cold – with warm fish or chicken it is delicious!  Try this in a Tuna Burger – yummy!

Italian Style Garden Tomato Salad
Italian Style Garden Tomato Salad
By Lisa Chodosh @ 15:24 :: 5516 Views :: 154 Comments :: :: All, Salads, Entrees / Main Courses, Holidays, Pareve, Vegetarian

This salad is best prepared when garden tomatoes are at their peak. It can also be used as a topping for bruschetta. Try topping a grilled chicken breast with a few leaves of fresh arugula and some heaping spoonfuls of the salad - it makes a quick, light and summery dinner.

Food Editor’s Note: This is delicious - it was gobbled up by our staff (and my husband had three servings!). If you are using this as a topping for bruschetta, you might want to cut up the tomatoes in smaller pieces.
