Who hasn’t eaten a delicious dish at a restaurant or fast food counter and tried to replicate it at home?

When it comes to the replication of a dish from an elite restaurant, it is actually not as complicated as you might expect. Yes, it involves much preparation, buying special ingredients, but the cooking techniques, even if they look complicated, can be learned at any cooking school, through books, and even through online videos. Sometimes, chefs generously provide a pretty accurate recipe.

You can find the recipe for Cranberry Walnut Salmon on a Bed of Spinach right here.

This recipe is a 3 pan meal but very much worth it. The melding of flavors was amazing. One flavor did not outbalance another. It was a beautiful harmony of taste! The recipe was very clear and easy to follow. However the was not enough “sauce” in the Cranberry topping. So I think next time I’ll double the amount of orange juice and honey. Leavening the cranberries and walnuts at the original amount.

Cooking Brisket – 5 Sweet Recipes

For a busy cook, for whom cooking is not the priority, recipes that require a little bit of preparation followed by at least one fuss-free hour are choice. Perhaps this is why so many Jewish cooks cook with brisket. Since it is a cut from the lower chest of beef, it has a lot of connective tissue that needs to be properly broken down in order to tenderize. Braising the brisket as a pot roast for holiday meals is the perfect way to break down the connective tissue. Just ensure to keep the meat covered and that it has plenty of liquid to cook in to avoid a dry and stringy cut of beef.

Since braising meat can take around three hours to cook, it is the perfect recipe to prepare before a big holiday: prepare it, stick it in the oven, and work on all of the other patchke dishes while it cooks. Over the years, brisket has penetrated the collective unconscious as a “Jewish food.” This dates back to nineteenth century Europe, because it was, and remains today, a relatively cheap cut of meat. Since it is lean meat, almost none of it goes to waste. Brisket just takes a little bit of patience, so that it gets tender and delicious. Here are some brisket recipes for Rosh Hashanah.

May 9th is national butterscotch brownie day, but what is a butterscotch brownie? It all starts with butterscotch a candy made from primarily brown sugar and butter and a few other things.  It is similar to toffee, but it only gets brought to a soft ball stage, meaning a lower temperature so that it doesn’t harden.  It is often turned into a syrup for ice cream.  The term butterscotch is used anytime brown sugar are mixed together, that is why Butterscotch Brownies are often called blondies, because theyare made similar to brownies, but are not brown.  Really they are more like a cookie bar often with added pecans and white chocoalte, but many people like to use milk or dark chocolate chips, really anything goes.  Most blondies we have don’t have that distinctive butterscoth taste, it might be that we use margarine.  To get the real deal we got to use butter today to make the Best Butterscoth Brownie otherwise known as Blondie.
