Mini Cheesecakes with Chocolate Topping

Here’s an easy dessert that can be served as is or with a delicious and quick chocolate topping. Great to make for guests, birthdays, holidays, “just because” or even for the summer holiday of Shavuot. It’s more figure friendly than the typical cheesecake and fun to eat as a “mini”.

Granola Bites

Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish Arbor Day, that occurred this week, reminded me that we traditionally eat fruits and nuts from trees in Israel. Here is a quick and easy snack that incorporates some of those delicious foods. You can also break it up into small bits and serve as “Granola Crumbles” or package them as a yummy treat in your “Mishloah Manot” gifts for the upcoming holiday of Purim. Feel free to be creative. Enjoy!

Super Bowl Layered Dip, Jewish Style!

Super Bowl Layered Dip, Jewish Style!

Here is a great “Noshable” (appetizer): I’ve taken two of my recipes (found on this website) and modified them to create this new and easy dish just in time for the Super Bowl! It has different layers and is best served with pita chips, tortilla chips, toasted pita bread or crackers.The layers can be made a day or two in advance and then assembled right before the game.  Just remember that if you have people who keep Kosher, don’t serve this with a meat meal or if having a meat meal, substitute a non-dairy sour cream for the regular sour cream. Go teams!!

Chicken Supreme

“Chicken Supreme” is one of the easiest dishes that I make and it makes its own gravy! Perfect for a winter dinner, it can also be doubled for a larger group. I’ve made it  with chicken breasts and thighs but it really is works best with chicken legs. Use whatever veggies you have on hand, but always add mushrooms – they help to make the gravy. You can literally pop it in the oven for an hour or so, busy yourself with odds and ends, come back and your dinner will be ready. It’s a “one-pot wonder”!! The Recipe

Chanukkah Cookies

Chanukkah Cookies

As I have always said, “No Patchke in the Kitchen”, which means, “No Fuss in the Kitchen”.  And I am true to my word! For these cookies I’ve used the dough from my delicious  “Hamantashen – A Traditional Jewish Pastry for Purim” recipe (found on this website). The dough has a mild orange flavor and is perfect when made as a cookie. I roll it out to a 1/4″-1/8″ thickness, then I use Chanukkah cookie cutters. Lo and behold…Chanukkah Cookies!  Read on for the Recipe
