The double portion of Mattot-Massei includes a detailed overview of where the Children of Israel have been since the Exodus from Egypt.  Now, standing just outside the Land of Canaan at the gates of the Promised Land the Jewish people are nearly ready to realize their national destiny in the land that was originally pledged to Abraham so many years ago.  The poet Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote: “Life is a journey, not a destination.” But don’t arrive empty handed.  One of my favorite treats to bring over for dessert is Biscotti.  This  week we’ve got a fabulous Shabbat menu, but make sure you leave room for these Almond Cherry Biscotti.

Start with two kinds of Bruschetta:

Fresh Strawberry Bruschetta


Olive Tuna Bruschetta

Tuna and Olive Bruschetta

Grilled Chicken Tenders with Cilantro Pesto

Roasted Rosemary Red-Skinned Idaho® Potatoes

Roasted Asparagus with Pine Nuts

Almond Cherry Biscotti
