I’m a big fan of stuffing. I love simple stuffings – like the old Stove Top stuff (don’t judge).  Of course it is sadly full of gluten so we can’t touch the stuff, but we can recreate our own.  And guess what?  It is smashingly easy and way less expensive.

Here’s how you do it. Get some of your favorite gluten-free bread. The bread counts for a lot of the flavor. Whether you buy the loaf or make it doesn’t matter. Just make sure you love it.

It is that time of year, Turkey day is only 9 days away.  While the rest of the world is going crazy preparing for the big meal, we are used to huge weekly dinners.  Meals where everything has to be cooked ahead of time.  And don’t forget the three day yom tovim.  Thanksgiving is a piece of pie and is actually fun to be able to cook food that doesn’t have to stay hot for hours.  But, we all do need reminders and pointers on making that Roast Turkey.  I mean how often do you make one of these enormous birds?

We at JoyofKosher.com got you covered with recipes and menus for a kosher Thanksgiving as well as tips, tricks and videos for a perfectly Roasted Turkey.

The new show, ‘My Grandma’s Ravioli’ debuts on October 24th on the Cooking Channel.   The show will follow, Mo Rocca as he learns treasured family recipes from grandparents across the country.  Mo grew up on his grandmother’s ravioli and although the memories will never be forgotten, the recipes are.  In each 30-minute episode, Mo will learn from other people’s grandparents how to make traditional specialties from their families.

In the first episode Mo visits 76-year-old spitfire grandmother Ruth Teig in Scarsdale, NY for a lesson in classic Jewish cuisine.  He will learn to make kreplach, gefilte fish from scratch and coffee cake.  Ruth includes family anecdotes and gives Mo a hilarious tutorial in Yiddish expressions.  As a holocaust survivor, Ruth shares her true appreciation for all the wonderful things in life and we look forward to watching her.


 

DIY – Make Your Own Applesauce

When I was growing up, Thursday afternoon was applesauce day. I can still picture the fragrant pot of simmering apples holding court on the stovetop. Once the softened apples burst out of their skins, my siblings and I used to fight over who got to churn the cooked fruit through the food mill.

With kids of my own, I’ve come to value the simplicity of homemade applesauce and its complex, aromatic taste that is so superior to store-bought brands.


 

Making the Best Out of Leftover Pumpernickel Bread

A few months ago I brought my daughter to the supermarket and she walked around asking for everything in sight.  Sound familiar?  When we got to the bread aisle, I figured I would let her choose which loaf to buy this week and she chose this gorgeous fresh baked pumpernickel bread.  She loves pumpernickel bagels and she vigorously shook her head yes when I asked if she would eat it, so I figured why not.  Fast forward three days and I had more than a half of a loaf left and couldn’t get my daughter to eat a single slice of toast.

I really hate to waste, so I knew I had to get creative fast.  I often make croutons with leftover bread and figured that these would actually taste really good in a hot split pea soup and they were phenomenal.

Before we know it the summer will be over and our children will be back at school. Instead of being consumed with new shoes, backpacks, uniforms, and school supplies, we will readily turn our attention to our Rosh Hashanah menus.  As a crafter of sorts my brain works a bit different.  I see the Yom Tovim in texture and color, and I think to myself what can I make (AKA CRAFT) that will add vibrancy to my table and get my children excited about the upcoming holiday.

What I love about the craft that I am about to show you, is that you can not only do it by yourself, but you can also have your children join you too. It’s easy, simple, and a super inexpensive serving piece that can be used all year long!
