Cheese Blintze Soufflé

Every household has certain traditions that are theirs. They are the routines that the family is used to. For certain holidays sometimes those traditions are passed down from generation to generation. For breaking fast the Guru house has their traditions just like most other homes. We make the usual bagels, lox, and cream cheese. Ok, you got me, we buy these items probably because it’s easy to serve, set up, and clear but as time goes on we started adding to these staples. One addition that we make is a blintz soufflé. I love cheese blintzes and can make them no problem but they are tedious and tiresome. It’s a real patchka, you might say. Well blintz soufflé may sound daunting but let me tell you its super simple. It’s basically a cheese blintz recipe but without the patchka. It might scare you because it’s 2 bowls but it’s really a cinch to put together and it’s always a crowd pleaser among both adults and kids.

Easy Peach Crisp

The last licks of summer is still here. It’s definitely hot enough to be summer that’s for sure. I still am getting amazing peaches, nectarines, and plums and the yummy stone fruits from the local supermarkets. I’m really picky with my stone fruit and I like it to be rock hard. If it doesn’t pass my touch test then it goes straight to be baked. I like making peach crisp for dessert in the summer because they are super simple easy and I usually have some stone fruits in the fridge that don’t pass my rock hard test. So In honor of the last licks of summer here is my version of the peach crisp I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 6 ripe peaches pitted and cut up small
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Juice from half of a lemon
  • 1 tsp Vanilla sugar

Crumbs

  • ½ cup Sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup oats
  • ⅓ cup oil

Directions

  • In a bowl mix the peaches, dash of cinnamon, lemon juice, and vanilla sugar to coat.
  • Place peaches in a ceramic pie plate.
  • To make the crumbs add all ingredients in a bowl and mix until it resembles sand.
  • Pour crumbs over peaches and bake in a 350 degree oven for an hour until peaches are soft and it’s bubbly.

Serve with ice cream & enjoy!

Candied Beef Fry and Kale Simanim Salad With a Pomegranate Honey Dressing

Does every meal need a salad? I always ask myself that question. Does anyone really like salad or do we pretend to like it because we know it’s good for us. Going into the new year, I would like to start with making sure I have a salad at every meal. I want my kids to learn to like salad from a young age and teach them the importance of healthy eating from early on, and also just to enjoy all foods, weather they are good for you or not. This salad serves a few purposes, it’s not just so my kids learn to eat a vegetable It’s also a fun way to incorporate the simanim for Rosh Hashana. The base I used was kale, yeah that’s the stuff I used to garnish tables with, that has made its way into households as a superfood. I added pomegranate seeds, which by the way I can eat by the bowl full, I love them that much. I also used shaved carrots, roasted butternut squash, Gefen premade beets, roasted leeks, cut up slivers of apple and to top it off and to get them to eat it, candied Meal Mart smoked beef fry. I don’t know about you but growing up we always had salad on the table and my mom always had bacon bits on the side. This reminds me of my childhood and now I get to have the real deal or at the least the Kosher version of the real deal. As a dressing I wanted to go light and I made a pomegranate honey vinaigrette. I hope you love this salad and not just eat it because of the health benefits. I hope in the Zechus of this salad we all have an amazing healthy and prosperous new year.
