Mushroom Medley and Meat Salad -a real favorite with men
Three Color Gefilte Fish -for the gourmet heimish cook
The Rebbetzins Gefilte Fish -great pesach and all year round. This is the recipe I make each year…..
Mushroom Moch Chopped Liver -great on matzo!
Potato Beef Latkes -these may remind you of Chanukah, but served with applesauce, this can be a delicious pesach treat too.
Mom’s Matzo Balls -nothing like homemade matzo balls
Roasted Red Pepper Soup -great for color as well
Creamy Carrot and Ginger Soup -use large carrots, they sometimes are sweeter, and there is less peeling that way.
Lamb with Lemon and Mint Sauce Lamb’s Gamey Flavors are said to be a natural pairing for Syrah. The 2010 Tulip Syrah is bold enough to hold up to the game flavors and has ripe fruit and subtle pepper notes to boot.
Roast Duck or Chicken with Orange Cherry Sauce Pair this course with Baron Herzog Zinfandel. This ripe and fruity wine won’t taste bitter with all the sweetness in the duck’s sauce and will hold up to the rich and bold flavors of the duck.
Tangy Potato Chip Shnitzel Pair this course with Gamla Chardonnay. This Chardonnay from Israel will complement the sweet and tangy flavors in the dish with its own creamy tartness, rather than overpower them.
Seder Celery Root Chicken a family tradition- and personal favorite
Coke Brisket most popular searched meat on the site!
Creamy Turnip Mash with Crispy Shallots -a new twist on mashed potatoes.
Apple Fritter -great for a sweet side dish, or try as warm dessert.
Crispy Baked Root Vegetables -goes well with fish, meat and poultry.
Italian Wine Salad -one of my favorites. Light and refreshing.
Roasted Radishes -I make this with the leftover radishes from the seder.
Roasted Vegetables -can’t go wrong with colorful roasted vegetables.
Stuffed Mushrooms -neat and elegant!
Potato Beet Salad -a classic.
Colorful Beet Salad with Oranges, Fennel, and Mint -love this combo!
Filbert Cake -a family classic .
Toasted Coconut Ice Cream -all coconut lovers line up!
Fruit and Chocolate Crumble -a great crumb recipe, if I may say so myself:)
Baked Apples with Walnuts and Raspberry Syrup -so simple, so delicious.
