Recipes for Jewish Celebrations

Challah in the Bread Machine

1 egg and then fill to 1 1/4 cups water

2 egg yolks

1/4 cup soft butter

1/2 tsp vanilla

4 cups bread flour

2 tbsp sugar

2 tsp salt

2 tsp yeast

1 tsp poppy seeds

Put all ingredients in as listed. Place machine on regular bread cycle for completed loaf.

One beaten egg in a separate bowl for glossing dough.(Only if using the braid option)

Braid Option: Place machine on dough cycle and then remove after complete to floured linen. Cut dough in half and set half aside, makes two braids. Take one half and divide into 3 parts make each section into a 12-15" 'snake'. Laying side by side the strips, press together at one end and braid in a simple braid press last end together and tuck ends under. Place on cookie sheet that has been sprayed lightly with Pam. Let it double. Glaze with egg and sprinkle lightly with poppy seeds. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until desired color.


3-4 large potatoes

1 large onion

2 eggs

1/2 cup flour

2 tsp % 2B salt


butter and oil for frying

sour cream and or applesauce

Grate and drain potatoes, mashing to get liquid out. Grate onion and combine with potatoes in large bowl. Beat eggs and add to potatoes and onion. Add salt to taste and pepper. Stir in flour. Cook on electric skillet heated to 400 degrees. I use a mixture of butter and oil to fry them so the butter doesn't burn at the high temperature. Cook till brown, only turning once. Serve with lots of sour cream and or applesauce.

I always keep extra potatoes ready because never do I fix enough the first time. :-)

Lamb Chops

Use Kosher chops or Kasher properly

(See Morton's instructions on Kosher Salt box)

Then marinade in the following

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 wine vinegar

1 Tbsp of minced garlic

Pepper to taste

Marinate for 1-2 hours Grill, on medium flame, 4 minutes on each side for one inch thick chops. Drizzle marinade over chops while cooking if needed to keep moist. Or broil in oven.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
