Five Minute Lemon-Poppy Seed Cake
I read a recipe a while back about a chocolate cake that was cooked in 3 minutes in the microwave. I didn't really believe it, but I tried it out and then proceeded to alter it to suit my own tastes because I thought it was too heavy and the texture was a bit wonky - if decent for an instant chocolate fix at 12:00 in the morning. Still, the unpleasant texture just became more pronounced as I experimented with vanilla variations. At last, here is my 5-minute lemon-poppy seed cake that rises beautifully and is light and airy - unlike the chocolate cake.
A tasty, easy-to-make chicken dish -- my husband loves it. Sometimes I cut the chicken in strips,and serve over pasta.
Easy Purim Hamentashen
A relatively easy recipe for both the cookie and the fillings. Kids will have fun kneading, rolling and pressing the cookie cutters. This includes instructions for milchig and pareve cookies.
Kolaches From the Bread Machine
This is a family favorite made easy. Preparing the dough in a bread machine saves time kneading the dough by hand. My grandmother used to make these when we would visit. Now I can make them for her.
Sambusaks (Sumboosaks) with Chickpeas
These are traditional Purim sambusaks from Baghdad, with a chickpea filling and a whole egg in each. Adding the egg is optional, so please omit that part if you'd prefer to make these without eggs.
My father and grandparents were born in Czechoslovakia. I use to watch my grandmother make these small pastries at Christmas time and I couldn't wait to eat them when she was all done. I do hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as I do. You will need a large area to work.
This is the best and most delicious salmon recipe, and very easy to prepare. I love maple in everything and put this together one night. My husband totally loved it; he did not like salmon that much until he had this.
