Kids Chicken Kabobs with Crushed Potato Chips

1 Comment 10 August 2011

I found this great kosher recipe for kids on Gourmet Kosher Cooking. Can’t wait to feed the little ones and enjoy a romantic night out!

Ingredients for this Kosher Recipe

  • 4 boneless, skinless,(organic) chicken cutlets cut into strips
  • 1 ounce (about 15)  Flavored Onion Rings snacks from the package .(you can find healthier  kosher versions of the traditional “Wise”  brand bagged onion rings in your favorite Health Food store.
  • ½ ounce (about 7 chips)  potato chips (pareve)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 dashes garlic powder, or to taste
  • 2 dashes salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg or 1/8 cup egg substitute
  • Chicken skewers (if wooden, soak for 30 minutes in water)

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Carefully slide each chicken strip lengthwise onto a skewer. Set aside.
  3. In a large sealable plastic bag, combine the onion rings, potato chips, and all the seasonings. If you like, add extra seasonings to taste. Seal the bag and crush contents until reduced to a coarse breadcrumb-like consistency. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  4. Prepare a large baking sheet by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray. Whisk egg into a small bowl. Take a chicken skewer and dunk it in the egg, evenly coating the chicken. Gently shake off the excess liquid and then lay chicken skewer in the seasoned crumbs. Rotate the skewer pressing it into the crumbs to evenly coat the entire piece. Place the chicken on the baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the chicken skewers.
  5. Bake in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes, carefully flipping skewers about halfway through cooking, until chicken is cooked through and coating is crispy. Cool for a few minutes. Eat plain or with duck sauce for dipping.

Turquoise On Your Table

No Comments 10 August 2011

Shelly Anteby effortlessly  breezes through each day  in her classic style and always makes sure to pull off a unique and daring table setting weekly.

“I start pulling out my Shabbat table setting from Wednesday. I pull out and see what works. Its not planned. By Thursday my table is set. This week I planned a turquoise theme. You could call it Indian or Moroccan inspired, because of the turquoise color and the stones. I started with the turquoise Kim Seybert runner and then offset it with seafoam green mother of pearl chargers as a base for each plate. I topped the chargers with clear turquoise oversized dishes that I found in IKEA.

My turquoise Limoges salad plates helped accent the jeweled napkin rings.I love to find table accents in Home Goods or Target.

In the center of the table I usually raise my salads and appetizers in little bowls on top of a simple glass tray. That becomes my centerpiece.

The point is to have fun with your  Shabbat table setting and just be spontaneous.”

SYRIAN MEAT KEBABS FOR ENTERTAINING

4 Comments 25 May 2011

Re-post by : Lisa Ades

This is a recipe I developed, featured in the New York Times dining section, as part of a piece by Julia Moskin called Burgers Without Borders.  These kebabs are savory and delicious and even good cold the next day (if there are any left over). (Year-round you can tuck them into a pita with salad, but during Passover, when you can’t eat any more matzah, why not go Atkins-style and just have them with a crunchy refreshing salad?)

SYRIAN BEEF KEBABS
Adapted by Lisa Ades
Time: 30 minutes, plus 1 hour for chilling

2 pounds ground beef (not extra lean)
4 tablespoons tomato paste
2/3 cup minced onion
2 teaspoons salt
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 dashes cayenne
1 tablespoon ground allspice
1/3. cup pine nuts
Oil to brush on grill rack
Lemon wedges  for serving
Lemony cucumber salad, for serving (recipe follows).

1. Combine all ingredients but oil, lemon wedges, and salad in a bowl, and mix to combine.

2. You can make these on skewers, but it is much easier to form them and turn them on the grill without.  So just form mixture into torpedo shaped kebabs about 1 inch by 3 inches or into small patties.

3. Lay finished kebabs on a sheet pan and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

4. Prepare charcoal grill, or turn gas grill to medium-low. Spray or brush oil on clean grill rack, and set within a few inches of the fire. Fire should not be too hot, and rack should be at least several inches from heat source.

5. When rack is heated through, place kebabs on grill. Meat should start sizzling gently; it should not spit and turn black. Cook undisturbed until deep brown, several minutes. When meat lifts easily from grill, slide a spatula under kebabs and turn over. Continue grilling until browned on all sides and juicy, but cooked through. Serve hot with lemon wedges and lemony cucumber salad (when it’s not passover, serve also with pita bread that’s been warmed on the grill).

Yield: 4 to 6 servings.

LEMONY CUCUMBER SALAD
Time: 5 minutes

6 cups romaine lettuce (about 2 hearts)

1 long seedless cucumber or 3 Kirbys, peeled, halved lengthwise, and sliced crosswise 1/4-inch thick

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1/4 cup chopped fresh mint

1 clove finely minced garlic (optional)

Salt and black pepper to taste.

Toss all ingredients. Serve chilled.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings.

The Prettiest Modern Passover Seder Plates and Matzo Holders For Your Holiday Table

The Prettiest Modern Passover Seder Plates and Matzo Holders For Your Holiday Table

No Comments 18 March 2011

 

 

 

On Passover,  don’t forget that its the little glimmery holiday touches that add to the WOW factor of your table. One of my favorite  Judaica Designers is Laura Cowan who is constantly inspired by the natural beauty of  the land of Israel’s dreamy sea and sky. I recently contacted Laura to asks her about her inspirations, and I was immediately drawn into the way that she was able to translate her passion for outer space into her gorgeous moon inspired Seder Plate featured below.

 I was so impressed to hear that it has been featured  in Bon Appetit and  Epicurious.com. (If you’d really like to be impressed, scroll down to the bottom of the page to see all of the galleries and museum shops that her work is featured in.)

According to Laura, “I had an image of moon craters in my head but I didn’t know how I was going to make this design until I started experimenting with different types of metals, thickness of metal and shapes. Each time I would adjust the type or thickness of the metal, or the size and depth of the indentations until I got a look closest to what I had imagined. Although because the dips are made by hand, each one turns out slightly different.”

When I asked her about the materials that she used, she said  “I chose aluminum because the shapes came out softer than steel but more defined than on brass. Also I love the bright, white, mirror finish that doesn’t tarnish.To make sure it was user friendly I tried out several types of chrane to check that it didn’t leave a stain (it doesn’t!)”

 “Most of my work is about vertical lines – “weightless” rockets and cones shooting up into space.
I knew that for a matzah plate that these motifs wouldn’t work because a plate is of course, horizontal by nature.
I had designer’s block for months until I realized that every time I had been cycling on the “tayelet” (promenade) I had been gazing at the shapes of the yachts on the Mediterranean sea and the fishing boats in Old Jaffa’s harbor. So back in my studio, I curved pieces of highly polished steel to reflect the ocean waves and the sails that glide upon it.
I wanted the piece to look like a piece of sculpture so I used hidden magnets so that the waves can be placed anywhere on the plate.”
I want all of my hostesses to know that these Judaica pieces are even more gorgeous in person, and we recently sold them at a community event.
Dozens of  Laura’s seder plate and napkin holders were purchased so quickly that we had to re-order them on the spot. 
Many women bought two matzo holders so that they could place  each one on each end of their holiday tables.
I asked Laura if she could offer my Jewish  Hostess readers a discount, and if you order ASAP  you can take 5% off the price on the checkout page.
Your discount will be reflected on your credit card statement as her website does not discount out automatically.
Make sure you write 5%Jewish Hostess on the checkout page.

The Silver Wave Seder Plate beholds an elegant, classic yet modern design. Taking almost a year to complete, it incorporates four unique layers. The top layer consists of a silver platter and 6 silver dishes with three layers underneath for the three Seder matzos. Three matzot are needed so that when we break the middle matzah, we are still left with two whole ones to pronounce the “Hamotzi”. These layers represent the three components of the Jewish nation: Cohen, Levy and Israel. The flowing effect of the six dishes on the silver layer gives the illusion of them floating just above the surface.

Time for Tea

1 Comment 31 January 2011

When the snow is coming down outside, there’s nothing better than curling up in a cozy sweater with a mug of steaming tea. But don’t settle for that old tea bag you found in the back of your closet – here’s a collection of what’s new, fun and elegant in tea time.

From  Yedi Housewares

We love these heart shaped cup and saucer sets. You can buy a set of 6 cups & saucers in assorted colors (bubblegum pink, banana yellow, lime green, pumpkin orange, turquoise blue and cranberry red). Available in two sizes.

Mighty Leaf Teas-

Mighty Leaf Tea Chamomile Citrus, 15-Count Whole Leaf Pouches (Pack of 3)

This line of specialized teas are packaged in “artisan-crafted whole leaf tea pouches” without any glues or staples, to allow for big pieces of leaves, fruits and herbs. Flavors like chamomile citrus and ginger twist will keep you coming back for more.

2 Karat Cup –

Everyone needs to feel special sometimes, which is when this clever mug from the Museum of Modern Art comes in. Designed by Yusuke Fujinuma, this mug has a Swarovski crystal built in to the “ring,” so you slip on the cool gold band as you wrap your hands around the mug.

“Thank You” Cookies –

Sometimes a mug of fragrant tea is perfect on its own, but sometimes it’s a venue for a sweet kosher buttery cookie on the side. These “world of thanks” cookies sold at Dean and Deluca (and made by Eleni’s cookies) are as educational as they are delicious – teaching you how to say “thank you” in 5 different languages.

Lipton Pyramid Teas

Lipton has decided to replace the old school ‘paper pillow’ tea bags with the new ‘Pyramid Tea Bags’, invented by the Japanese years ago.

The pyramid shape of the tea bag gives room for the tea leaves inside it to expand. This allows you to have the ‘loose-leaf experience’, which adds to the luxurious experience of sipping a cup of these delicately scented tea bags. I was at a Brit Milah recently, and when they served these teas, I knew I had to find them and have them on my dessert table!

Buy Here: Lipton Green Tea, Mandarin Orange, Premium Pyramid Tea Bags, 20-Count Boxes (Pack of 6)

Stash Honey Sticks can be displayed on a silver rectangular  tray on your dessert tray. They come in packs  of 6, are made out of pure clover honey, and  are kof-k certified.

“For my best friends birthday, I went all out in MY favorite color with my pink placemats, drinking glasses and my rhinestone glitzy bow napkin rings wrapped in not one- but two napkins. I folded both a white and a pink napkin together to get that perfect shape to fit beautifully into my bows. For her special day , I served spaggheti squash baked ziti, a big hearty salad (every girls favorite) , artichoke bottoms, bruchetta, parmesan truffle french fries and last noodles with pesto.

Yummy Apple Chunks Dipped in Chocolate for Kids

4 Comments 11 December 2010

Rummaging around the archives, I found this great old post. I can’t wait to re-make these apple chunks!

This updated recipe from our last post Healthy Snacks for Picky Eaters, was created when we we realized that we had run out of bananas.  Its another great last minute snack and takes about 10 minutes to put together.

-we melted some chocolate  chips in the double boiler

-then we chopped up 2 apples ito big chunks and sprinkled them with a teaspoon of lemon juice

-skewered them with some shish kabob wooded sticks

-set up some bowls with sprinkles, nuts, or any toppings will do.

The comments from my seven year old-

“Mommy this is awesome!”

“Mommy stop eating all of them!”

“They are for kids and you are getting fatter by the minute.” (she really said that)

They really were yummy. We had a great time melting, dipping,  rolling, and crunching. I dont regret not one bite.

Healthy Kosher Chips and Dips for Super Bowl Sunday

Healthy Kosher Chips and Dips for Super Bowl Sunday

3 Comments 01 December 2010

It’s that time of year again – when the whole family will gather around the TV Sunday afternoon – half to watch the game and half to watch the commercials. And while everyone has their own reasons for watching the Superbowl – they will all be in agreement about the need for great snacks. Whether you serve a full-course meal or a few things to nibble on, chips and dips are a Superbowl snacking essential. Here are some great kosher chips and dips that are exciting and different – when you get bored of the classic tortilla chips and salsa.

Baked Lentil Chips – in two different varieties – sea salt and cracked pepper and cucumber dill – these chips are totally gluten free and full of good things like fiber and protein.

Yummy-made out of lentils, adzuki and garbanzo beans!

Rice Works Whole grain Snacks – these crispy treats come in six delicious flavors – sea salt, sweet chili, salsa fresca, baked cinnamon, parmesan and tangy bbq – to satisfy the sweet and salty tooth in every member of your family. Plus they’re low fat, so you won’t feel guilty about your indulgence.

Sabra Red Pepper Hummus - there’s a reason Sabra hummus has the biggest share of the hummus market – it is just finger lickin’ good! Their red pepper variety is always a solid choice, or try the plain for a safe bet – or any of their other types!

Sonny and Joe’s Matbucha – this traditional Sephardic dish is just tomatoes and peppers cooked down and seasoned and spiced to perfection. When you don’t have the time to make your own, just pick up some from Sonny and Joe’s – a local New York company that started on the Lower East Side!

Turkey ‘n Mustard Deli Roll- 5 Ingredients

2 Comments 11 November 2010

This recipe was sent in by my friend Nina Safar of Kosher in the Kitch.

Kids love this deli roll – it will be a great hit on the Saturday lunch table.

  • Cold cuts of your choice (I use and turkey and salami)
  • Puff Pastry Dough (I use Mazor’s  puff pastry sheets)
  • Condiments of your choice (honey mustard)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Sesame Seeds

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

Allow the pastry dough to defrost (however you still want it to be firm so you can work with the dough) then roll it out on a slightly greased cookie sheet. Layer the honey mustard and cold cuts in whatever order you like. Then roll the dough like a jelly roll. Cut some slits along the top and spread the egg yolk on top and sprinkle on some sesame seeds before baking it in the oven on 350′ for about 45 minutes to an hour.

“I have always been a fan of roasting any vegetable at a high heat to caramelize its natural sugars. This fantastic side dish goes a step further by adding a spicy kick that makes these carrots addictive.” – Susie Fishbein

I would double or triple this recipe and use it for Shabbat as a new vegetable on the table. – Marlene

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt or kosher salt

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

1.  Preheat oven to 450˚F. Cover a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

2.  Cut each carrot in half to make 2 (3–4 inch) pieces.

3.  Cut each carrot half in half lengthwise. With the cut-side-down on your cutting board, cut each half into 3 equal strips to make thin carrot sticks.

5.  In a large bowl, mix the olive oil, water, garlic powder, cumin, sugar, paprika, and white pepper.
