Shabbat Menu – From Heart To Mouth

5 comments | Leave Comment


This week’s double portion includes a most beautiful conceptualization of our Torah.  Moses teaches that “the laws which I command you this day, it is not beyond you nor is it remote from you.  It is not in heaven… It is not across the sea… Rather, it is very close to you, in your mouth, in your heart, that you may do it.”  We have the potential to reach for what seems impossible and bring heaven down to earth.  I love the connection of the heart to the mouth – whether it is a kiss from someone you love or a special dish that will make someone you care about smile.  It’s why I love to cook.  And it’s why I am so excited to share this heavenly hearts of palm recipe along with our Shabbat menu.

    How do you keep your pot stickers crisp and avoid it going soggy?

    I’m making a vegetable soup; salmon with tomatoes, peppers, and onions; mashed baby red potatoes; and of course challah.
