    Feivel, when I read your post, my first thought was OY! Is that dinner or snack or what?

    (no offense…it just sounds so unhealthy)

    i meant the hot dogs have enough oil to cook them, you dont need to add additional oil

    WOW, thanks ames. I am glad that your family enjoyed the cheesecake. Maybe I should start a new thread Cooking with Mod-72

    mepal, I can’t take credit fot the triangle cheese cake recipe, I posted that on from an email I received from the person who started the challah baking project.

    My cheesecake was a HUGE success. It was worth the effort. Ditto my blintzes.

    The triangle cheesecake came out deeelicious! Thank you 72 for posting it and for the anonymous person for sharing it!

    btw, you can substitute the farmer cheese for regular whipped cream cheese. (we used one and a half cartons). It came out great.

    Aidel maidel- best to start in advance. Make whatever you can this week already.

    I’m planning to prep and freeze 2 types of soups- chicken soup and veggie or butternut soup. Those freeze beautifully and you get one job done!

    Fish ill prepare b4 yom tov. I would do two types.

    I do salmon- will bake some of the slices with some oil, paprika, garlic powder springled on. The other slices will b e baked in a sauce of sauted onion and garlic, mixed with brown sugar and ketchup. Yum!

    Meats I guess will do:

    Simple baked chicked for one meal,

    Cooked minute steak,

    Turkey goulash cooked with potatoes.

    You can also prep in advance and freeze some pie as side dish.

    Now for milchig dishes…hhhmmm….too many good dishes to choose from…still deciding!

    Good luck!

    moderator, your cheese triangles sound yummy! I wanted to know if you have to spray the silver foil before you put down the wet tea biscuits? Do they stick to the foil when it’s time to peel it off? thanks for this topic!

    I try to avoid putting crab into any of my dishes, but most especially not into cheesecake! (oh c’mon, tell me NO one noticed this one!)

    hi, last min preps for yom tov meal and i need help! once again i turn to the CR (and smartcookie!) for some good recipes! im looking for a recipe for salmon, im doing it by the day meals so need a cold salmon recipe- not one that has to be hot/freshly baked. thanx so much!

    #1017275

    Aidle, take your salmon slices (I use fillets) and poach them in a seasoned broth with water,lemon juice, white wine,salt and pepper, and sliced onions, until the fish flakes easily (about 20 minutes should do it).Taste the broth to see if you like the proportions. I don’t have a set measured amount. Chill thoroughly and make a sauce to serve along side or on the fish, with mayonnaise,a little lemon juice, garlic salt, and dill weed. I like to sprinkle a little paprika over it, for a little color. It is best served cold.

    Yummy salmon- saute onion, when golden, add 1/2 cup sugar until browned. Add fish. Cover with water. Spice with some some salt, bay leaves, whole cloves(for taste).cook about 1 hour and let cool!

    Really delicious!

    A friend gave me this recipe and she said its amazing. I’m trying it tonight:

    White Chocolate Cheesecake

    Crust:

    5 oz graham crackers OR Nilla Wafers

    1/2 cup roasted hazelnuts (optional)

    1/4 c unsalted butter

    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    Filling:

    12 oz white chocolate chopped in small pieces

    1/2 c heavy cream

    3 8 oz packages cream cheese

    1/4 c sugar

    4 eggs

    1 tablespoon vanilla

    Topping:

    1 3/4 c sour cream

    1/3 c sugar

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Preheat oven to 350

    Grease a 9″ springform. Melt butter. Crush crumbs, mix with butter and cinnamon, press into springform. Bake for 5-7 minutes. Cool pan on a wire rack.

    Lower oven temp to 300

    Melt the white chocolate and cream together until smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.

    Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time. Slowly beat in white chocolate mixture and vanilla. Pour into the crust and bake for 45-55 minutes, being careful not to brown the top.

    Increase oven to 400.

    Prepare topping by mixing sour cream, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl. Pour over the cheesecake and bake for only 5-7 minutes more. Turn off the oven and let the cake sit inside for 1 more hour. Decorate with white chocolate curls if desired, and dust lightly with cocoa powder.

    smartcookie, just a quick question, its my first time cooking salmon, how long do you cook it for/in your recipe? how do i know when its done?

    #1017282

    Cook it abt an hour. Salmon is technically cooked after abt 1/2 hour but I think it stays too hard. I like it cooked a bit longer than that so you have soft fish.

    #1017283

    If you bake salmon in the oven, it’s soft when broiled for 10-12 minutes (if it’s already filleted, otherwise about 15-20 min.

    OOmis – I made your cheese cake (as I did last year) and I just had one question. I ended up with so much more white batter than chocolate so after doing one spoon each eventually I was left with no chocolate and alot of white. I was making it in a smaller pan anyway so i just have one marble and one plain white but I was wondering if I was doing something wrong. Tastes good anyway! Thanks

    #1017286

    Pour a thick layer of white batter into the pan, then drop nice dollops of chocolate batter over it in various places. Repeat the process until there is no more of either batter left. The take a knife and swirl around to marbleize. The white batter should be thoroughly covering the pan every time you pour it in. It should get used up in two layers, I should thing.

    Tb – did I not say this was an awesome cake?

    #1017287

    This quick, easy, low-fat, and delicious recipe was in last year’s Yated.

    1 graham cracker shell

    1 16-oz cottage cheese

    2 eggs

    2 T. vanilla sugar

    2/3 C. sugar

    2 heaping T. flour (you can use whole wheat if you like)

    chocolate syrup (optional)

    Combine cottage cheese, eggs, sugars and flour. Blend for 1-2 minutes with a hand blender.

    Pour into pie shell.

    Optional: Create a web with chocolate syrup.

    Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

    Any new recipes for this Shavuos? I am looking for pickled salmon, something different to do with chicken cutlets, and kugels. I would especially appreciate gluten-free recipes.
