What an easy summertime salad! You can make this in five minutes or less and it’s so refreshing. This is also delicious served at a brunch gathering. It contains dairy so bear in mind if keeping Kosher.
I made up this dish years ago when I was a college student in Israel. In those days, my focus was on making something quick but this also happens to be a healthy dish.You can make it from start to finish in about eight minutes! Perfect for when you come home, don’t know what to make for lunch or dinner and just want something that doesn’t take a lot of time. This recipe is for one or two people, but you could certainly change up the quantities. You can also season the zucchini with your favorite herbs. If you are not a fan of eggs, don’t worry, just omit them – you can make the zucchini as a delicious side dish. Enjoy!
Not exactly a summertime recipe but I couldn’t resist – this will be one that you will keep making and making! In the European Jewish tradition, Jewish Bubbies (grandmothers) have long been making Bubka, a sweet yeast bread/cake which usually has chocolate swirled around inside it. There has been much debate on whether Bubka is a bread or a cake. Whatever your position is or if you have never had it before, now is the time to sample some. Great for brunch or as a dessert, particularly delicious with a cup of coffee. Now you will able to make it in a flash, thanks to some shortcuts. You can bring this as a gift when visiting friends or when invited for dinner. This version is especially fun to share at the table with others, just pull out the pieces and dunk (make sure you have extra chocolate glaze in a bowl for dunking). I put extra glaze in the middle of the plate so you can dunk as you take a piece!
