Jewish Soul Food

Monday, September 13th, 2010

It might seem strange to think about food for a holiday about fasting, but that’s just what I did when AOL asked me to write some recipes for Yom Kippur – break-the-fast, that is. Stranger still, I am STILL thinking about it! (Well, let’s face it…it’s not that strange, especially if you know me.)

herring blintzes rugelach quiche

Should I make some blintzes with cherry sauce, or just some chocolate chip rugelach? I do make the blintzes fairly often, as it is hands down my son’s and husband’s favorite breakfast. My Great (and great) Aunt Candy will be serving her legendary kugel, so I can cross that off my list. I already prepared some pickled herring with apples and walnuts as a Rosh Hashanah hors d’oeuvre; but maybe I’ll pick up some matjes herring from Russ & Daughters. If I end up with leftover smoked salmon I absolutely will make a “lox, eggs, and onions” quiche.

What is your favorite break-the-fast food?

Key Lime Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

What could be better than key lime pie? The ice cream sandwich version, of course! In my new AOL series on, Pantry Challenge, I show busy mom and PR professional, Jennifer, how to make this delicious no-bake dessert. Want to lower the calories a little? Use sugar-free jello and low-fat graham crackers.
