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.

Counting down the hours until the fast is over? Planning what delectable foods you will display on your plate? Are images of gourmet meals, penne vodka, hamburgers and other random dishes splashing across your mind?

Well, despite what our minds are telling us what we want to eat in our starvation, here is a list of what foods we need to eat to refuel and replenish our nutrient stores.

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!

Designer Pamela Jemal did all that and made it practical too—with an entire wall of storage space.

I can think of few things that inspire fear in the hearts of many cooks more than a soufflé.

Maybe it is the meringue that makes people nervous, or the thought of a flat pancake dessert, or maybe it is the timing issue? I think it is all of the above. The fact is that a soufflé is actually easy once you understand it.

It all started with Bacon Salt and a dream to make everything taste like bacon to go way beyond Bacos.  Two young entrepreneurs, Justin and Dave, followed their dream and now have over 9 products to help everyone including kosher consumers enjoy the smokey flavor of bacon.  Even though bacon is not kosher, these products are able to replicate the taste.

Today, you can win a sampling, a basket of J&D’s bacon flavored products including 1 Bacon Salt, 1 Baconnaise, 1 Bacon Ranch, 1 Bacon Gravy, and 1 Bacon lip balm (not so sure about this one, but to each his own).  Value – about $20.
