Make Your Own Gorgeous Holiday Napkin Rings In 10 Minutes or Less!

1 Comment 25 September 2011

 With only a couple of days to count down to the Jewish holidays, its time to start thinking about a creative table setting.If you would like to add some down to earth homemade creativity to your holiday table then these do it yourself napkin rings will add a touch of elegance without making much of a dent in your wallet! Don’t forget that you can match the ribbon to your holiday  table setting theme whether it be Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot, Tu Bishvat, Chanuka,  Purim or Passover!

Gather round the kids or any extra hands in the house, and you will be done in a jiffy.

You will need:

  1. Several cardboard paper towel rolls.
  2. Choose about 3 yards of an elegant ribbon about 1 1/2 inches wide to make about 24 napkin rings.
  3. Choose a matching solid ribbon to line the inside of  your paper towel holder.
  4. Choose a thin metallic ribbon (I chose a silver thin ribbon to match my moroccan style ribbon)
  5. Buy double sided fabric tape. (I found that fabric glue can be very messy)

How to:

1-Cut your paper towel holder into equal sizes about 1/4 inch narrower than your ribbon, marking your “cut” lines with a pencil beforehand.

2- Measure and cut the ribbon to fit around the perimeter of the cardboard holder overlapping slightly. The overlap will be the underside of your napkin ring.

 

 

3- Line the inside of your napkin ring with the matching ribbon (It doesn’t matter which step you do first)

4- Cover the overlap edges with the narrow matching ribbon, and glue with krazy glue.

5- You can mix blues and vary your hues…….-

6- Slide in a pretty flower, layer over a pretty salad plate….

6

7- You can even layer your place settings over two table runners set across from each other.

This Moroccan style table runner is from Kim Seybert.

Crispy Homemade Apple Chips- repost!!!

3 Comments 25 September 2011

 

 

I am very close to a certain family member who makes the most awesome brunches. Last month she decided to have the entire family over on a Sunday. It was so nice just to get together. We just never wanted to leave. Check out her table and comment with the recipes that you would like me to post for Shavuot.

 

 

I purposely left the pictures a tiny drop small so that I can surprise you with more great pics for  Shavuot.

My anonymous relative just gave me her great recipe for crunchy apple chips sweetened with a drop of sugar.

Perfect for Mother’s Day AND Shavuot!

Check out the video above for a great lesson on how to use a mandoline.

Crispy Homemade Apple Chips

  • 3  honey crisp apples, washed, cored and sliced thinly with a #2 blade on a mandoline.(leave the shell)
  • each apple should have enough slices spread thinly  to cover one baking pan that is covered in parchment.
  • you should have 3 trays with thinly sliced apples.
  • spread 1 teaspoon of sugar across each tray covering the apples thinly.
  • bake at 175-200 degrees for 3-4 hours depending on your oven. If you take them out too soon they will be soggy, but at the same time don’t let them burn! Enjoy!

    Fashion Isha’s Rosh Hashanah Table Decor- Stunning!

    No Comments 24 September 2011

     

    Thank you Sharon from Fashion Isha for sending in your Rosh Hashanah table decor!

    Hi Marlene,
    Shana Tova-
    Here’s what I did:
    I purchased yellow tulips and daisies, red roses, apples, pomegranates, lemons and honey from my local grocery store. I purchased flower pots, crystal bracelets, ribbons and mini jars from my local craft store. I placed 4 different sized vases (that I found around the house) in the center of the table and added the fruit and flowers keeping each type of flower separate and keeping all four vases at different elevations. I also placed some apples and lemons around the base of the vases.
    I place a bracelet around each flower pot and placed a pomegranate inside. I then filled the mini jars with honey and tied a red ribbon around each one. A pile of sheer gold ribbon makes a gorgeous base for the centerpiece or they can be laid across the table as runners.

    Thanks!

    How to Make Chocolate Dipped Strawberries by Claudia Bildirici

    No Comments 20 September 2011

     

    Hi Hostesses!

    You don’t know how lucky you are to be getting one of Claudia Bildiricci’s secret decadent recipes for chocolate dipped strawberries.Claudia made these strawberries for my daughter’s bridal shower, and I thought that they would be a great symbol for a ” clean slate” Rosh Hashanah dessert because of the white chocolate that encases these gorgeous long stem strawberries. Due to kashrut reasons we took off the stems, but you are welcome to ask your local rabbi for permission to leave them on!

    If you do decide to make these chocolate dipped strawberries, please take a pic and send it to me! (marlene (at) thejewishhostess )

    Wishing you a healthy and Happy New Year! Marlene

     

     FIRST:

    1. Take 12 stem strawberries or a pint of regular strawberries. there is nothing like the long stem for dipping!  Great to have a stem to hold when eating.
    2. Very important that you wash and DRY the strawberry well or the moisture will make the chocolate separate from the berry

     NEXT:

    10 Steps for Making Chocolate Dipped Strawberries:

    By Claudia Bildirici:

    1. Melt one bag of chocolate chips in the microwave for one minute on high.
    2. Mix well adding a capful of oil to thin the chocolate.
    3. Keep mixing till the chocolate is completely melted. You do not want to keep heating in the microwave for too long or the chocolate will turn white when cooled. If needed place back in micro for 20 seconds.
    4. You can also melt chocolate on a double boiler.  Just take a large pot with water 1/4 way up.
    5. Place a bowl on top filled with chocolate and keep mixing on medium heat.
    6. Place melted chocolate in a shallow bowl holding the berry by the stem
    7. Dip one side then the other forming a V of chocolate on the strawberry.
    8.  This can be a nice time to add shredded coconut or chopped toasted nuts or even a drizzle of white chocolate (put chocolate into a ziploc bag and poke a TINY hole into the corner, drizzle across the whole tray of strawberries back and forth for a wispy beautiful swirly look) is always a hit!
    9. Place berry onto slipat mat or wax paper to dry.
    10. They will only last a few hours so try to do this as close to serving as possible!
    11. Love, Claudia

    Sweet Potato “Fries” with Fresh Basil

    No Comments 20 September 2011

    Try this “healthier” version of french fries. The fresh basil is a nice surprise on the crispy sweet potatoes. This is a delicious side dish for a dairy or meat meal, but don’t expect any leftovers. I would make these fresh out of the oven on Sukkot with cruchy salads salads and some sreaming barbeque or fish as a main dish!


    Kosher Recipe Ingredients:

     

      • 5 sweet potatoes, cut into about 1 by 5-inch “fries”
      • 3 tablespoons olive oil
      • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
      • 2 teaspoons kosher salt or sea salt
      • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

     

    Directions:

    1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. Place the sweet potato “fries” on a foil-lined baking sheet and toss with the olive oil. Bake until crisp, about 45 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile combine the basil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
    4. When the sweet potato fries come out of the oven, sprinkle with the “basil salt.”

    Lisa’s Endive, Green Apple, and Pistachio Salad

    2 Comments 14 September 2011

    I first met Lisa Ades about three years ago, when I was searching high and low for a film maker to help interview 300 of our communities elders for the Joseph J. Sitt Sephardic Heritage Museum. Being a sheltered yeshivah girl from Brooklyn, I was truly mystified as to how I would go about such a project, but Hashem had his plan.

    After asking around in supermarkets, exercise class, (“does anybody know a film maker….?) etc. and at marjan games, I finally got a call from my friend Barbara Azizo who said, “remember when you asked me about a fillm maker? I just remembered I DO know someone….”

    After interviewing several other talented people, I knew that Lisa was the right person for the job. Lisa’s grandfather  Joe Ades had come to this country from Aleppo at about the same time that mine had arrived. Her family was raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., but at a certain point, Lisa’s dad had decided to move out of state. Lisa went on to film school, won several awards for directing the Channel 13  New York Series, among others.

    When Lisa heard about this opportunity,  she gave up her public career  for the chance to dig into her family roots alongside me, both of us being exactly the same age. All in all, we have interviewed over 300 people together with Joe Sitt as executive producer, to produce a 10 part documentary series on the history of the Sephardic Community. Stay tuned for Episode 3- Life in Bensonhurst- The Depression 1930’s…… to be seen October 9 in Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center …. tickets going fast……

    By the way, Lisa is a gourmet cook whose recipes have been featured in Saveur Magazine….

    ” Hi Marlene-I got tired of eating boring lettuce leaves every night so created this bright, crunchy salad, incorporating all the shades of green for spring – pale green endive, bright green apple, deep parsley and gorgeous pistachios. We liked it so much I made it again the next night. And the next night… Lisa Ades”

    Lisa’s Endive, Green Apple, and Pistachio Salad:
    • 4 large heads endive (or 6 small ones) about 1.5 lbs.
    • 1 large green apple
    • 1 lemon
    • ¼ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped coarsely
    • ¼ cup dry roasted, unsalted pistachio nuts

    Dressing:
    • 1/2 shallot, minced (about 1 Tbl.)
    • 1 Tbl. sherry vinegar
    • ½ tsp. Dijon mustard
    • 1 garlic clove, smashed lightly
    • 3 Tbls. extra virgin olive oil
    • Salt and pepper
    • a half teaspoon of honey

    1. Cut apple into 4 large pieces around the core and julienne or cut into thin strips. Remove to a small bowl and toss the apple well with the juice of one lemon. This will prevent the apple from discoloring (and adds a citrusy flavor to the salad).

    2. Separate endive leaves; stack them and cut into long strips on the diagonal. Put them in a large bowl with the chopped parsley. Mix in the apple and pistachios. This can be refrigerated until ready to serve.

    3. Make dressing: in a small bowl, mix the minced shallot with the vinegar and let macerate for 10 mins to ½ hour. Wisk in the mustard, a whole garlic clove lightly smashed with the side of a knife, salt and pepper to taste and honey.

    4. When ready to serve, remove garlic clove and dress salad, using a little dressing at a time until it’s just coated.
