As my sister-in-law likes to say "if you can't take the heat... turn off the oven." English is not her mother tongue and so she tends to bungle sayings like these -- we get such a giggle.
Now in Israel we are the immigrants - and, kindly enough, she never laughs at our attempts to speak a language that reduces our grammar to that of a four year old.
So in honor of my sweet sister-in-law I bring you 4 dishes for which you do not need your oven.
This is a refreshing summer dish when watermelon and blueberries are at their best. Fun for outdoor or indoor grilling!
The trick to making good lemonade is to use a simple syrup which is made with equal parts water and sugar. Simple syrup can be used for the base of many drinks, including sangria.
I happen to be a soup girl. I take after my mother and grandfather a"h who enJOYed piping hot soup even on a boiling hot day. But if you can't take the heat - a quick, cool gazpacho should do the trick.
This is delicious on challah rolls, kaiser rolls, or your favorite sandwich bread.
