New Recipes - Beating Boredom

There are some weeks that I crave new recipes; the old beloved standbys get tossed aside and I scour through cookbooks, epicurious, and the pages and pages of printed out recipes for 'someday'. Well, this week is someday. Don't get me wrong - my family and guests will not have to suffer through a meal of all new recipes, but I found a few that seemed good (which are bolded below). It may seem like too much food, but when I get into that "something new" mood, I fill in with simple easy things that I know will be eaten even if the experiments are not!

This shabbat's dinner will be:

Chicken soup with noodles and potato kneidlach

Teriyaki Silver Tip Roast
Apricot Roast Chicken
Jerusalem Kugel (I know, it's traditional for lunch, but....)
Corn Squash Muffins (trying them out for Thanksgiving potential)
Soy Sauce Green Beans
Tossed Salad
Basmati Rice
Hasselback Potatoes

Cocoa Chiffon Cake
Coconut Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting
Rocky Road Bars

Shabbat lunch will be leftovers..... yummy roast beef sandwiches, etc etc etc

Successful new recipes will be posted next week!

  1. I made the desserts last night - the rocky road bars and coconut cupcakes look amazing - the chocolate chiffon cake needed and extra 1/2 hour in the oven and still fell right out when I inverted it - and THAT's why when I try all new recipes, I try a few - though the cake is delicious, and I'm going to make some pareve mudding or mousse and make layered parfaits out of it....
