Last Shabbat I made a crunchy, colorful chopped taco salad inspired by my favorite  new gourmet kosher cookbook, Chef At Home published by the Magen David Yeshivah PTA.

Esther’s Spiced Barbecued Slider Recipe

7 Comments 15 May 2011

My very good friend Esther Saada is known to be a gourmet cook and entertains with first rate quality and class. This slider recipe is a great weeknight dinner or perfect for upcoming summer barbecues The secret to these sliders being gobbled up is the small size and the slider buns that she buys from Jimmy Hanon who sells mezonot or Hamotzei buns.  They come in 1 bite or 2 bite size. Esther recommends the 2 bite size bun. Jimmy Hanon sells his slider buns to a lot of the NYC kosher caterers, and he sells to individual customers as well. Give Jimmy a call at (718) 753-3213. Tell him Esther sent you!

p.s. You can also try this square slider burger press that I own from Williams Sonoma! It really gives the burgers that perfect shape and looks very restaurant style!

 

Hi Marlene,

I made these sliders about 2 inches in diameter. Allow for shrinkage when u cook meat. I barbecued the  sliders and had the fixings on the side. Ketchup, pickles, and I fried fresh onions.   It was a hit! Not one left!

Esther

Kosher Beef Slider Recipe:

  • 2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons Onion soup mix with a  1/4 cup hot water
  • 1/8 cup Ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Soy sauce
  • 1/8 cup parsley
  • 1 Onion chopped fine
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • Salt and  pepper
  • Mix all ingredients and shape.

Healthier Brown Rice Krispy Treats

1 Comment 12 May 2011

When I found this Rice Krispy Treat recipe (or is it Rice Crispy Treat with a “c”?) , I knew I had to try it. I called Omni Health in my neighborhood and they quickly delivered creamy almond butter and crisped brown rice cereal among my veggie burgers, Ezekiel bread, baked potato chips, whole grain pastas, and assorted other brownish ingredients. Trust me, my kids weren’t too thrilled going through the shopping bags, but within 20 minutes I was done concocting these Brown Rice Krispy treats and they discovered that they were pretty good. Within the next couple of hours, the pyrex full of chocolaty  brown rice squares was almost wiped out. Try these as a Shabbat or Shavuot dessert!
  • 1/3 Cup Creamy Almond Butter
  • 1/3 Brown Rice Syrup (or Maple Syrup)
  • 1 tsp. Real Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Cups Crisped Brown Rice from the health food store
  • 7 oz. Good Quality, Dark Chocolate ( I used bittersweet Scharfenberger chocolate- it’s more expensive but you can really taste the difference)
  • 1 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter or Earth Balance margarine

1. Using a double boiler, set a glass bowl over a small pot of simmering water, making sure that the bowl is not touching the water. Put the almond butter, brown rice syrup and vanilla extract in the bowl and stir until everything is evenly mixed.  Pour brown crisped rice into the pot with the syrup. Mix with a spoon.
2. Spray the bottom and sides of a 8×8 glass pan with a light coat of desired neutral tasting oil (coconut, canola, grapeseed etc.). Pour the rice mix in and push it down with the back of a spoon.
4. Add the pieces of chocolate to melt slowly in a clean double boiler, stirring occasionally. When the chocolate is melted, add the butter or Earth Balance margarine and stir. Pour the chocolate on top of the rice crisps and quickly spread it across the top with an offset spatula or back of a spoon in an even layer. Refrigerate for at least a half hour to set and cut them in to squares with a sharp knife. Keep stored in the fridge and try to eat them within two days or freeze in an airtight container.

Your Fruit Plate- How to Slice a Mango

3 Comments 02 May 2011

image courtesy of Elana’s Pantry

This Mother’s Day and Shavuot make sure your fruit platter is the hit of your dessert table. Cut your watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, kiwis, strawberries  uniformly, and place your beautifully cut mangos on top or on the sides. When fruit is appealing, your kids and  guests will be just as temped to grab a vitamin C packed chunk of fruit instead of a sugary snack.

The video above shows several ways to slice a mango. Of course all of the different mango shapes are beautiful but my favotite are the decorative mango cubes pictured above!

How to Slice a Mango- Decorative Style:

  1. Stand the firm but ripe mango on its end, with stem side down
  2. Slice the flat sides off the mango, without cutting into the pit
  3. Place half mango on a cutting board, flesh side up
  4. Without cutting through the skin, score the mango with vertical lines
  5. Next, score mango with horizontal lines; leaving squares attached to the skin
  6. Turn the piece of fruit inside out and use a spoon to dislodge the cubes from the skin
  7. Repeat for the other half of the mango. Let the kids enjoy the pit!!!

Revised!- Zaatar Mini Pizzas

5 Comments 02 May 2011

This recipe was such a hit that I decided to re-post it. Zaatar is a tangy, addictive spice that is actually a mixture of dried herbs, sesame seeds,  sumac, and salt.  It is a centuries-old mixture dating back to at least the 13th century. Exactly what those herbs are, and how all those ingredients are proportioned vary from culture to culture and family to family. If you would like to create your own memorable zaatar recipe, you  can start  HERE, and  give or take a little until you create your own personal zaatar potpourri.

Great last minute yummy pizza!

Kids and adults love it- great for parties! Perfect for your Purim Seuda!!

    • Mazor’s Pizza Dough- these come ready made- I buy whole wheat mini pizza doughs at Kosher Corner.
    • Zaatar spice
    • olive oil
    • shredded low fat mozzarella cheese
    • delete the cheese, or use cheese substitute and it becomes dairy-free and vegan!
  1. place pizza doughs on Pam sprayed parchment paper on a cookie sheet
  2. mix zaatar with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, salt,  pepper and sesame seeds (to taste) in a small bowl
  3. spoon mixture on top of each pizza dough
  4. sprinkle cheese on top of each one
  5. bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes

Wilted Spinach with Toasted Garlic Chips

Wilted Spinach with Toasted Garlic Chips

2 Comments 30 April 2011

I got this recipe from my mother in law who is always trying something new and delicious. Instead of sauteing the spinach, she uses the hot oil from frying the garlic to wilt the spinach. The result is a delicious “salad” spinach. This technique also leaves no room for “spinach soup“, which can happen from sauteing the spinach for too long a period. I usually serve the spinach as a salad at room temperature before the main course, or as a side dish to a salmon or steak. And I always eat the leftovers for lunch the next day.

Kosher Ingredients

Two bags Baby Spinach leaves refrigerated (I use the pre-washed bags and then wash and dry it very well one more time.)

4-6 Cloves of garlic sliced thin (I use a mandolin and put it on the medium setting)

Kosher salt or sea salt to taste

4 tablespoons Good quality extra virgin olive oil

 

Directions

Before you begin, make sure to have washed and dried the baby spinach leaves. Place the spinach in a large heatproof bowl, such as  pyrex. Refrigerate the spinach (the spinach must be cold prior to pouring the oil onto it).

In a medium sauce pan place the olive oil and sliced garlic cloves and season with salt-Do not over salt because you will add salt onto the leaves themselves after you pour the hot oil.

Heat oil and garlic on a medium to high flame. Cook garlic in oil until just golden, and  pour mixture  (very carefully) into the pyrex bowl. Toss gently so that the oil is well coated on the leaves. More salt can be added at this point if you prefer.

Leaves will slightly change in color and will wilt. Serve immediately or at room temperature. Can be refrigerated once cooled and served later that day.

 

Note Do not over cook the garlic slices as they will turn bitter if cooked too well done. Using a mandolin is preferred so that the garlic will cook evenly.

Sari Dana is one of my very best friends. Have you ever seen an exercise instructor sweat through a whole hour and 15 minutes of  cardio blast with super positive energy,  grace, elegance, and a smile? Well, there you have it in a (protein packed) nutshell. Meet Sari Dana. Stay tuned for more recipes and sugar detox inspiration. Marlene


The Ultimate Spring Detox-a Quick, Easy Way to Sugar Detox:

Every so often I meet someone on the street, in a restaurant or just in passing who would reach out to me and share their sugar detox challenge experience.

In case you’re not familiar with my Sugar Detox story, I would love to share it with you.

Even though I, like most people, have a difficult time expressesing the truth about my negative habits, I sum up the energy to do so, by thinking about my desire of a higher cause. The cause of helping others. I know my story will help hundreds if not thousands, possibly even millions. You see, it’s a ripple effect. If I can help someone from my experience, and that person helps someone else, a family, a community and possibly the world at large can benefit.

So here it goes…

April 2008 was the turning point for me. The month that changed my life.

In April 2008 I embarked on the biggest feat of my life. A 30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge.  You may have read my articles for each of those days on the Jewish Hostess blog, or followed me through my emails. The writings were raw. I was simply stating my experience. I didn’t have a plan, just a goal to complete 30 consecutive days sugar free. I, along with my group at the Sephardic Center, and my dedicated readers, embarked on a challenge that would change my life forever.

What was so exciting about being sugar free?  I could sum it up in one word, a word that most people search a life time for.  HAPPY.  When I became Sugar Free- I became HAPPY.

Yes, my life is filled with many things to make me feel happy.  I am blessed with a wonderful family and friends. I have a career in fitness that is extremely rewarding.   Yet, the only time that I am truly happy is when I am sugar free.

Why would living a life without sugar have such profound effects? Refined sugar does not benefit our bodies or mind in any way.

While it has many negative effects, like  rising triglcerdies significantly and suppressing the immune system, the biggest on my list is brain fog and mood swings that occur when you eat refined sugar. If you ever expirenced a brain fog- you know what I mean!

Without sugar in your system you can conquer the world! It is such an empowering feeling. Sugar brings you up for a short period of time, and then brings you down. Sometimes so down that you just need to sleep. If you ever over-ate a large meal, then you know what I’m talking about.

Without sugar, your brain can work with clarity. Focusing will become easy. This is especially helpful in children, who need to focus in school for 8 hours at a time. You will always have an even temperament, and trying to lose weight will become a thing of the past.

After helping hundreds of women, I decided to attain my degree from the American Associastion of Drugless Practicioners and enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Being a health coach and a fitness professional has helped me to gain access to help so many more people in our community. By blending my two careers, my clients are able to reap many rewards. I truly feel blessed.

Simple Roasted Garlic and Rosemary Chicken

1 Comment 08 April 2011

 

Nowadays, its so hard to find an easy and simple chicken recipe that is not camouflaged with candied sauces that are so sweet that we don’t even realize that its even dessert time.

I believe that our grandmothers imbued their holiday meals with cups of love mixed with with a down to earth collection of  simple ingredients that  reflected their  humble,  less-complicated lives. Its time to unveil the true flavor of your chicken!

Roast Chicken

From How to Cook Italian by Giuliano Hazan

  • 1 (3 ½ pound) chicken
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 medium cloves garlic
  • 2 fresh rosemary branches
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.  Preheat the oven to 375° on the regular bake setting.

    2.  Pat the chicken dry with paper towels.  Sprinkle some salt and pepper inside the cavity.  Lightly crush and peel the garlic cloves and place them inside along with one of the rosemary branches.  Close the cavity on both ends with toothpicks.

    3.  Rub the olive oil over the skin of the chicken.  Chop the remaining rosemary and sprinkle it all over the chicken along with some salt and pepper.  Put the chicken in a roasting pan with the breast down and place in the oven.  Calculate approximately 25 minutes cooking time per pound (1 1/2 hours for a 3 1/2 pound chicken).  After one third of the cooking time has passed, about 30 minutes, turn the chicken so the breast is facing up.  After the chicken has baked for two thirds of the total cooking time, about another 30 minutes, switch the oven setting to convection heat and raise the temperature to 400°.  If your oven does not have convection heat, simply raise the temperature to 425°.

    4.  To check if the chicken is done, pierce the flesh near the leg joint to see if the juices run clear.  If they do not, roast for another 10 minutes and test again.  Remove from the oven and let the chicken stand for 5 minutes before carving and serving.

    Roasted Portabello Mushroom and Bleu Cheese Salad

    Roasted Portabello Mushroom and Bleu Cheese Salad

    3 Comments 28 March 2011

    So, my husband’s away all week. This means that it takes a whole lot of willpower NOT to eat sandwiches, packaged meals and bowls of cereal each night for dinner. I need quite a bit of inspiration just to turn on the stove while he’s traveling. Luckily, that’s exactly what this blog is all about — inspiration.

    This week, I decided to try a really simple, light salad (with VERY little oven-time required), courtesy of the doyenne of domesticity herself, Ms. Martha Stewart. The roasted portobello salad with blue cheese is from Martha’s Food Everyday “Fresh Flavor Fast” cookbook , which is a compilation of recipes from her magazine, Everyday Food . If you haven’t picked one up, you should. The magazine (and cookbook) are filled with awesome and easy weekday recipes. It’s a true favorite of mine.

    This super simple dish will not disappoint. The portobello mushrooms are so meaty that they serve as a great, kosher replacement for steak. If you’re having trouble finding a kosher blue cheese, Kirkeby (Kirkeby-Cheese.dk) makes a Danablu that can found in many kosher supermarkets (I even found it in my neighborhood,in a non-Kosher market). You can also find many kosher cheeses HERE

    The salad would make a great appetizer or a light meal. I had mine with a piece of French bread, which was perfect. I’m just sorry my husband missed it.

    -Lucy Cohen Blatter

     

    PHOTOS:

     

    Make sure you dress both sides of the mushrooms with dressing and keep brushing them every five minutes as they cook.


    Some people don’t care for blue cheese’s strong smell and flavor. Feel free to substitute your favorite kosher cheese to accompany these meaty portobellos and crunchy, slightly bitter endive.


    The final product: A satisfying, but light vegetarian appetizer or meal.

    Here’s the recipe, which serves four, with my tweaks and notes (in italics):

    Roasted Portobello Mushroom and Blue Cheese Salad*

    Ingredients:

    • About 3 tablespoons kosher red-wine vinegar (I didn’t have any on hand, so I substituted balsamic. Not a problem at all)
    • 1 tablespoon kosher Dijon mustard
    • Salt and pepper
    • 2/3 cup olive oil
    • 4 portobello mushroom tops only (to clean, pat the tops with a wet paper towel)
    • 2 or 3 medium heads endive (great for crunch, but I’d say three, as the original recipe calls for, is a bit excessive)
    • 8 ounces mesclun or mixed salad greens, (about 10 cups)
    • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
    • 4 ounces blue cheese (cholov yisrael, kosher)

    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 450. Whisk together vinegar, mustard, heavy pinch of salt and heavy pinch of pepper. Slowly add olive oil, whisking to emulsify. Set aside 1/2 cup dressing to toss with the salad later.
    2. Place mushrooms, stem side up, on a baking sheet (or tin foil– less cleanup!). Coat both sides with some of the remaining dressing. Roast mushrooms, brushing with more dressing every 5 minutes, until they are tender, about 15 minutes.
    3. Toss endive, mesclun, onion, and cheese with reserved dressing, and divide among salad bowls. Cut portobellos 1/2 inch thick, and arrange a few slices over each serving.

    How to Feel Skinny After the Seders by Sari Dana

    4 Comments 27 March 2011

    It’s Thursday morning, and the Seders are behind us, the kids are in school, and all that food is in us! I must be honest, as much as I tried to eat as close to my ideals as possible, the over dose of all the extra food that my body is unaccustomed to, makes my body feel….well, simply… FAT!

    One part of brain tells me, “don’t be such as party-pooper!” It’s so much fun to taste everything in sight and share in the fun with friends and family. The other side of my brain says, “get over it Sari, having control over what you eat is a direct line to how you look, and more importantly feel.” For example, I hosted the first seder to 16 family guests. I was so excited to prepare my family’s favorite dishes that I forgot to prepare something acceptable for myself! Being unprepared totally left me vulnerable.  As a Jewish mom, I know taking care of others sometimes precede taking care of myself. On the converse, when I ate a lunch at a friends house, it was so easy to stay focused. I was being served, and making choices was easy, knowing that eating lightly will honor my body greatly.

    In retrospect, I believe it’s a sign of maturity to enjoy all the wonderful aspects about a family holiday dinner without over doing it and tipping the scale way over to what you are comfortable with.  Whew! I thought I lost the ability to “have fun”, and “let loose.” Instead, I’m simply being insightful and in tune to my needs.

    Just know, that Jewish women from all over the globe are going through the same thing! We are in it together! We can share in each triumphs and help each other in time of need. Like now! We do our best…. but together we can do better!

    Remember…

    20- 30 minutes of walking or jogging

    16 lunges

    16 pushups

    20 -60 second planks-3x

    One important tip that’s easy to follow: up your water intake! Aim for 8-10 glasses of water. You will immediately feel less bloated. Matzahs are very dry and can clogg us up, if you know what I mean

    Here’s something to look forward to…..

    After 8 days of Passover (Pesach) feasting, I will be introducing my 2nd annual “30 Day Sugar Challenge!” You are going to love this! Tell your friends and family. This challenge is for anyone and everyone who craves eating at a higher ideal.

    Starting date: May 1, 2011

    Ending date: June 1, 2011

    Keep on the lookout for more information on how to join in and get started. But for now, enjoy your family, friends and honor your body. If not YOU…then who??

    Delete the Flour in Your Pantry- Sweet Potato or Coconut Muffins

    1 Comment 27 March 2011

    Kosher Recipes

    Sprinkled with Coconut

    Chocolate Chunk

    Nothing is more satisfying than an empty crumpled bag of whole wheat flour sitting on my kitchen counter. Especially a month before Passover.

    Heckers

    So when I saw Mark Bittman’s   “Whole Wheat Muffin, The Remix” recipe in the New York Times, I decided it was worth a try.

    The only problem was, it called for “preferably whole wheat pastry flour”, and I only had a bag of regular  whole wheat flour. I also decided to see if anyone would notice if I substituted agave nectar for sugar.

    I ran out and bought buttermilk, (you can also make your own easy buttermilk HERE) and on Sunday morning the muffins were mixed, baked, and out of the oven within the hour. Cleanup was a cinch. I made a double batch. The first bunch was filled with a baked and mashed sweet potato. I topped those with leftover shredded coconut from my freezer. The second batch was mixed with 3 really ripe bananas that would have otherwise gone in the garbage.  I topped them with chocolate chunks just to make sure that they didnt look too healthy.

    Well, I left them all in a plate, and ran out to exercise.

    Conclusion: The all time  favorite was the banana chocolate. Not such a hit was the sweet potato topped with coconut.

    They never even guessed that agave nectar was the sweet culprit.

    This is a really great  grab- and- go breakfast item for the older members of the family. I have a feeling that kids under eighth grade wouldnt go for it so early in the morning but its worth a try. This is also not a recipe for a sugar lover like my sister-in-law who would rather have a Snickers for breakfast. Give it a try!
