Caramelized French Onion Soup

No Comments 28 November 2012

 

The legendary “French” onion soup may give the impression of chic “La Femme” demurely sipping hot soup from fine china bowls and sterling soup spoons, but in actuality, French onion soup origins began with cheap laborers in the Lyons silk industry.   The inexpensive and easily found ingredients are what made this soup so affordable and comforting after working an 18 hour day looming the heavy silk attire that French men and women dreamed of impressing each other with.

 So, the next time you enjoy a hot fresh bowl of French onion soup, just remember that this recipe was intended to soothe and relax the hard workers in your home. Put up your feet, take a deep breath, and enjoy this moment of cozy comfort that was meant just for you.

Here’s another treasured Instagram recipe. Have a great day! Marlene

Sweet and Crunchy Cinnamon Candied Almond Treats

No Comments 26 November 2012

This past weekend, my kids decided to whip up their own Sunday afternoon snack via Google, and after some clicking away they found this cinnamon almond edible delight from Allrecipes.com. This concoction fit the bill because luckily we happened to have all of the ingredients stocked in the house. It gave me such pleasure to see them running around and grabbing  ingredients, because even though the kitchen was stating to look like hurricane Sandy hit, at least the TV was not the focus of the morning. 
We edited the recipe a drop and it was gobbled up!
Add this home made treat to your Hanukka gift giving list! Just wrap it up and add a Hanukkah gift tag!

Sweet and Crunchy Cinnamon Candied Almond Treats

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon cold water
  • 3 cups whole almonds
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10×15 inch jellyroll pan.
  2.  Beat the egg white, make sure its beaten totally. I used an immersion blender in a small cup to make sure it was beaten well. Add water, and beat until frothy but not stiff. Add the nuts, and stir until well coated. Mix the sugar, salt, vanilla and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the nuts. Toss to coat, and spread evenly on the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, stirring occasionally, until golden. Allow to cool, then store nuts in airtight containers.

  b- Help them with the slicing.
  c- Let them arrange!
2- Have your local fruit man cut a nice sized pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds,
fill the hole with water,
get some rustic themed flowers,
and you’re done!
3-  Dig up some orange, green, yellow and
brown construction paper, get some kid safe scissors,
and let the kids figure out the rest!
4- Your local fruit store should have some gorgeous mini squash and pumpkins.
Tie them with raffia or craft wire and
use on each place setting and arrange as  your centerpiece.
5- Using a sharp coring knife, carve a  hole the to insert your tea lights, and voila!
6- Use fresh autumn vegetables as your votives.
Its a little more time consuming but your guests will be
very impressed!
7- Leaves and  MOST objects that adorn your front steps
can make a plain napkin come alive with your holiday theme.
8- Nothing like a little glitz to glamour up a
traditional rustic Thanksgiving table decor!
9- Dig up last year’s Hanukka candles
and mix them into your Thanksgiving centerpiece. Who would ever think that they
could look this good?

Another recipe from an Instagram fan!

Many Sephardic recipes contain allspice, which possesses the delicious flavor of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg ground into one. It’s a great accent to meats, rices, side dishes, and salads. In this recipe, Laura uses cinnamon, allspice, pistachios and nuts. All of these ingredients punctuate the aromatic flavors of the Sephardic household duringShabbat and holidays.

No Comments 15 November 2012

Dear Hosteses,
This is an easy, yet gourmet  recipe to keep in your last minute quickie dinner arsenal. We are fortunate that here in Brooklyn, a quick early morning phone call to the local kosher butcher and fruit store, can yield us the necessary ingredients for this delicious dinner by 2 P.M. No matter what time you start this delicious dinner salad and chicken sauté, you will be done within the half hour. I hope you enjoy, because there are so many obligations that we tend to within our hectic days, meal time planning and cooking shouldn’t have to add to the stress. Please comment below and let me snow what you think!

Thank you Ruthie for your beautiful note and  for sharing your Hanukkah tips with us!!! Marlene
“Dear Marlene,
This is my Hanuka tablesetting for this year.
I started out with a white tablecloth as a base and a ran silver and white stripe wrapping paper down the middle.
I used silver square chargers from Amazing Savings and glass square dishes from Kitchen kaboodles .
Under the dinner plate I placed the napkin and under the salad plate.
I put metalic blue driedels and menorahs also purchased from Amazing Savings .
The blue water glasses are from Wishing Well and the wine goblets were borrowed from my mother.
Scattered all over the table are silver chocolate coins and metalic dreidels and menorahs…
The centerpeice is a vase from Home Goods filled with faux blue hydrangeas , white orchids and branches which will last through the entire Hanuka and ill look foward to bringing them out year after year!
Faux Florals can be purchased by calling /texting me (917) 439 1889…
Hope to inspire others the way I’ve been inspired!
Thank you Marlene for such an awesome website!You truly inspire me.”

The Gorgeous Hanukah Table Setting at Table Set Go in Deal, New Jersey

3 Comments 04 November 2012

Alls I can say is “WOW” to the fantastic Hanukka table created by Betty Esses and Gracie Silvera. They really put their heart and soul into their Hanukka  display for The Morris I. Franco Community Cancer Center Table-Set-Go charity event in Deal, New Jersey. The ladies used a deep ocean blue colored cloth as a base for their Hanukka table and layered it on the festive Hanukka colors from there. Silver Chilewich placemats lined their elegant but casual silver rimmed china. A Tiffany shopping bag graced each place setting. Grace Sivera’s dreidel collection, amassed from her travels all over the world came in handy as she creatively dangled a unique dreidel from each turquiose blue Tiffany mini gift bag. Driedels that were drizzled along the table were craftily dipped in glue and then blue and silver glitter, and added even more sparkle to their Hanukka table decor. The hydrangea filled blue vases were purchased from Home Goods, and the unique sterling and blue dotted drinking glasses were borrowed from Surrey Lane on Avenue P in Brooklyn. Even though it was the middle of the sumer, Grace and Betty fried soufganiyot and baked Hanukka cookies!  Blue and silver ribbons of different widths and colors tied around the soufganiyot platter flowed down both sides of the table.

Thanks so much ladies for your fabulous Hanukka inspiration!!!!

Roasted Eggplant, Chop Meat, and Spaghetti Pie in a Roaster

1 Comment 04 November 2012

 

This masterpiece of a spaghetti pie belongs on every Shabbat table at least once a month! With Sephardic origins, tadbilah is a Syrian word for sautéed spiced ground meat filling. To make tadbileh: Saute a finely chopped onion in vegetable oil over medium heat till transparent. Add one pound lean chop meat, sautéing and chopping with a fork till cooked. While sautéing, add a teaspoon of  allspice, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and a dash of salt. Thank  you @stacy416 for sharing this great Shabbat and holiday dish!

Its basically kosher marshmallows with a pretzle stick in the top, and a Hershey kiss on the bottom.  I used frosting to stick the kiss to the bottom.  Then I just used frosting to write the letters on the side. For the platter in the picture, I only wrote one letter on each driedle so the frosting wouldn’t smear.  This year I am setting it up as an activity for the kids to do themselves, which should be a lot of fun!”

My First Chanukah Party by Michelle Dayan

2 Comments 03 November 2012

Thank you Michelle Dayan for sending in pictures of your first Hanukkah table!  Although its hard to store extra holiday table accessories in a small apartment, you created a gorgeous Hanukkah atmosphere by mixing in some of the decor that you already had, and added in just a couple of extras. Great Job!!!! Marlene

“Dear Marlene,

Here are some pictures from my Chanukkah table. I got inspired from all the amazing pictures you’ve been posting. I wanted to make a statement with my table but I didn’t want to spend a fortune and didn’t want to end up with lots of Chanukkah decorations (I’m in a small Manhattan apartment so I always have to think about where to store things!).

Hanukkah Party Table Ideas

Hanukkah Party  Table

I ended up sticking to a silver and blue theme and using the silver Chilewich runner and placemats that I already owned. I wrapped two empty boxes in blue wrapping paper (which I also had laying around) and topped them off with beautiful silver ribbon from Papyrus. I scattered silver gelt and wooden dreidels over the table. I “invested” in 8 small votives from Crate and Barrel (a dollar-something each), and placed four on either side of the centerpiece. Finally, I found a DIY driedel place card template from Martha Stewart‘s website–they were fun to make and cost practically nothing!”

Hanukkah Party Table Ideas

I also baked sugar cookies with the recipe you posted. I decorated them with blue sugar. The driedel cake I made by baking brownies in a 9 x 13 pyrex, then cutting two diagonal lines at the bottom, and cutting a strip off the top, which I used for the handle. I made a stencil of the letter hey and sprinkled confectioners sugar through it.

Lemony French String Beans with Almond and Whole Wheat Breadcrumbs

No Comments 01 November 2012

No need to worry about more oven space for re-heating on Thanksgiving night! These tender string beans are served room temperature. They make a beautiful presentation in an oval or rectangular  platter with the almond breadcrumb mixture sprinkled delicately on top.

Check out all of our Thanksgiving recipes HERE!

recipe via http://www.thekitchn.com/

Lemony Green Beans With Almond Breadcrumbs
Serves 6

  • 1/2 cup blanched and slivered almonds
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat (or plain) Panko breadcrumbs
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds french green beans, trimmed

Lightly toast almonds in a skillet over medium heat. Let cool, then transfer to a food processor and grind to the consistency of breadcrumbs.

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, almonds, breadcrumbs, and lemon zest and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant and golden. Remove from heat and stir in parsley.

Place lemon juice in a small bowl and slowly whisk in the remaining olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add green beans and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain green beans, return to the pot, and toss with the vinaigrette.

To serve, arrange green beans on a platter, drizzling with the  lemony vinaigrette that’s left at the bottom of the pot. Sprinkle almond and breadcrumb mixture on top.
