There are many versions of this standard pastry wrapped mashed potato entrée. This is pretty traditional and as good as any knishes off a New York street vendor. If your kids or anyone else doesn’t like onions or a pronounced onion taste, omit the sautéed onions and use the onion powder called for. This makes tons of little knishes or about 2 dozen hefty, grandma styled knishes. If you were really busy, you could even use boxed mashed potatoes for a shortcut and still have amazing knishes. You can also use storebought puff pastry or Sour Cream Mock Puff Pastry.
Date squares may seem so yesteryear but frankly, between the goodness of dried dates, the wonders of tasty/healthy oatmeal, butter and brown sugar, and a touch of orange, they are state of the art baking. Many foods are called comfort foods but this one has earned it halo. When's the last time you made date squares? It's that time again.
Warm, slightly spiced with cinnamon and oranges, this is a heart-warming brew after you rake the leaves. It features spice, apples and a few other goodies and is the most soothing exlixir you can imagine. Makes a wonderful Fall gift too.
These are great for Easter, Passover or a gourmet picnics. A Middle Eastern inspiration and a conversation piece just because they look so unique, these bold-flavored hard cooked eggs are simmered in onion skins, and tea leaves. The flavor is great but the beautiful mosaic of design that results on the egg white packaging is what sells this beauty. Serve with cheese and bread, or cold side salads. If you prefer a pinkish hued egg, check out my recipe for Pickled Eggs.
These are cheesecake minis. Cheesecake ‘rounds’ or truffles are cut out of a pan of vanilla cheesecake and rolled in chocolate crumbs. This is a symphony of ice cream, cream cool cheesecake and hot fudge. You can also make these in muffin cups but simply cutting them out with a cookie cutter after the cake is chilled make a more elegant look. If you want them for a party, then bake in muffin cups and freeze them up to two weeks ahead.
A 9 cup food processor can handle this recipe but if yours is smaller, switch to your stand mixer for this adult and kid-charming recipe. The Oreo cookie bottom bakes right into the batter making a sweet solid base and nice change of texture as you bit through these gems. Use any type of Oreos you like (Double Stuff or Chocolate or special editions). These are a delicate, black and white cupcake, studded with chopped Oreos on top and a drizzle of chocolate glaze. Great summer food or party fare for kids.
These are a must with Restaurant Style Caesar Salad.
This is one of those secret ingredient recipes that makes all the difference. These succulent (no other word) meatballs are zesty and full of bite and always get eaten before the meal for which they are intended so plan on making two batches. These are so good that 1990 people downloaded this recipe in 11 minutes last fall. It's not up to 2500 hits.
I call that a winner.
It’s not Rice Crispies, it’s another approach just in time for a Passover sweet snack (in case you get tired of Matzoh Buttercrunch). Easy and fun, kids and adults adore this.

These mini kugels and are so tasty. You can also use the batter to make small vegetable latkes.
