I thought it might be nice to share some family/ cookbook recipes/menus
Rosh Ha Shanah is approaching
I just ordered ground fish for gefilte fish-everyone enjoys my old fashioned Eastern European unsweetened fish.
need to buy a small brisket, sweet potatoes-etc
I have several Jewish cookbooks as well as websites for recipes
Tired of the usual overcooked turkey my folks make. I'm hosting this year and planning on serving a turkey ballantine for a change. White meat & skin wrapper, dark meat forcemeat; hoping it's a good one.
One of my main dishes is Chicken Marbella...with the prunes in the recipe, it's a sweet meal for the holiday. Also, I can make it one or two days ahead, and just reheat before dinner. As a matter of fact, it's even better that way.
yes. this is a wonderful moist easy cake. Make it in a tube pan if you have one. Use parchment in the bottom.
If for any reason you don't want to use the whiskey, sub coffee or strong tea.
I prefer it with half whole wheat or white whole wheat, and have subbed applesauce for half the oil, and have added walnuts and /or raisins.
I use much less sugar too , half suggested amount, but keep it if you like a very sweet cake.
The recipe is very flexible and always delicious.
Thanks again for the link to the Smitten Kitchen recipe for Honey Cake. I made a 1/3 recipe for a single loaf pan and it turned out great. I made it as a gift for my mother, who loved it. I made it exactly as written and do agree that it's really sweet. Next time I will probably omit some of the sugar.
