You may recognize this picture; it is after all on the cover of the cookbook! Aside from it looking pretty, I think it also says a lot about the recipes in the book. Jamie is giving delicious recipes for families to be able to prepare quickly (for the most part). This recipe is the epitome of that. The prep took minutes and the results were beyond words delicious!

This was another early morning for me. In about 15 minutes the meatloaf was prepped and ready to go into the crock pot. It felt really great knowing that dinner was taken care of before I even left to work. I knew all I would have to cook when I got home was the sauce.

When I first saw this picture, I was like “yah right” I am not going to even attempt to patchke and make those beautiful little sushi style chicken rolls. So making the dressed down version was an easy decision.

I have always kept away from veal. Not for any political reason, just texturally it was never something I was into. My mother has made it a few times, that is how I know it’s not something I like, I have never cooked it.

“Mommy is it Chanuka”? “Nope, no it is not. Mommy is cooking her way through a cookbook, so we might be having things a little out of season from now on”. I totally see how that could confuse a 2 year old ☺.

This was my first time making Yerushalmi Kugel.

I can’t say that I was nervous, although there was a lot of pressure on me for cooking this dish. Hubs spent a few years in Israel and has a strong idea of what this classic kugel is supposed to taste like. It was fairly easy to prepare so that was definitely an added bonus. The finished product could not have come out any better!

This sweet and sticky glaze lives up to it’s name. Just from the prep of this marinade alone the stickiness comes through. From cutting up the lemons and limes to scraping the orange marmalade out of the jar, the stickiness was everywhere! I opted to use a whole chicken cut in eighths rather then the drumsticks alone since our family likes tops and bottoms.

When I get overwhelmed I love to watch The Food Network, specifically The Barefoot Contessa. Everything about her calms me down. She has such an ease to everything she does. One of the dishes that she makes is Coq Au Vin. It’s always been something that I have wanted to try, just had to figure out how to make it easier and kosher. Thank you Jamie for giving us exactly that!

Both of these salads are super simple to prepare and really delicious! I find these type of salads are really great to have on hand for a three day Yom Tov or a long summer Shabbos when shalosh seudos needs to be hearty. Just keep the raw ingredients in the fridge and put them together right before the meal.

Eat your veggies! Isn’t that what your parents always said? Well Thank G-d that is one problem that we do not have here. We have successfully gotten our kids to eat broccoli, spinach, asparagus and even the forbidden brussel sprout!

In late summer, I love to go to my local farmers market and buy fresh fruits and vegetables. Some of my favorites are beets, carrots, and radishes. The vibrant colors alone are reason enough, but we also really enjoy eating them!

We opted to dress this recipe down and roast the veggies while leaving off the nuts. We figured it would be more family-friendly, since our family is not so into nuts.

This week’s dishes are Greek Pasta Salad and Zucchini and Red Peppers. I was trying to figure out how to lend the zucchini side dish to make it a meal. More on that soon, but up first – Greek pasta salad.

Part of the excitement of going out to eat is ordering food that you can’t make yourself.

After reading Jamie’s intro to this recipe I have my own corn muffin story to tell. When I was younger I would often go to work with my Mom. When I would get hungry my Mom would let me go down to the café that was in the building and get a snack. Well Im sure you figured, I would always get a corn muffin, cut in half and toasted, with a side of butter. It warmed me from the inside out, so good!

So when it came time to do this recipe, I decided to turn it into cornbread muffins! Our annual family Purim Seuda was around the corner, I figured that individual mini muffins would be an easier side then just making a big dish of it. I adjusted the cook time to 15 minutes, down from the original 25. And they came out perfectly!
