OK, I think we’re gonna do something like this –
Appetizer – tuna/vege blintzes with mushroom sauce
Not sure about the soup but onion sounds yummy – we may pass on soup since we have a ton of food for entre –
Cottage cheese/pineapple kugel (may have to get the recipe from BHB’s wife for that cherry kugel business though)
Dessert – take your pick
1 israeli cheese cheesecake
1 plain cream cheese cheesecake with blueberry topping
1 chocolate cheesecake
1 sour cream chocolate pound cake
milchig ice cream
Ummm, I’m full already thinking about it.May 23, 2012 9:30 pm at 9:30 pm #1017683cherrybimParticipant

Recipes please, folks.

There are a lot of recipes you can make stovetop: Blintzes, cheese latkes, soups, pastas, mashed potatoes, brisket, schnitzel…
Two years in a row our oven broke erev pesach.
We don’t have our convection oven anymore, but I’m sure there are many brands on the market that can roast and bake as you wish.
Keep us posted….
Let me know if u need any recipes.May 24, 2012 3:34 am at 3:34 am #1017691147Participant
Despite your broken oven, as long as your freezer is operational, how about Dairy Coffee Ice-Cream, to assist your remaining up all nite?May 24, 2012 6:27 am at 6:27 am #1017692Dont Worry Be HappyMember
Oomis – You can make almost anything on the stovetop. Spaghetti & meatballs, stewed chicken and potatoes, chicken cacciatore, fried chicken cutlets, pickled salmon, fish in tomato sauce, croquettes (tuna, chicken or salmon), stir fry, shredded chicken (cook cutlets and sauteed onions in barbecue sauce and water, shred chicken with two forks, cook some more and serve over buns or rice, steamed or sauteed vegetables, quinoa (hot or cold), pasta salads, sesame noodles, macaroni & cheese, pasta in any kind of sauce (vodka, alfredo, marinara), make rice and turn it into a sushi salad or add onions, vegetables, chicken, tofu, etc., stuffed peppers, beef stew, goulash, steamed wontons filled with chopped meat, chicken or vegetables, gourmet sandwiches and wraps. Joy of Kosher or Gourmet Kosher Cooking have great recipes and you can probably put together a great menu quickly.May 24, 2012 12:22 pm at 12:22 pm #1017693
Don’t feel bad oomis1105, our oven stopped working as well – and we just paid the repair guy 400 sheks to fix it earlier this week. Now he says he can’t come back until after the chag!May 24, 2012 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #1017694
To all of you who replied with really helpful suggestions, thanks very much. Some of the things you suggested, I can do. Others (like pasta dishes and anything with sesame), I cannot, because there are some allergies and other dietary restrictions in my family (among all the people who will be here for yom tov),that make some of those delicious sounding suggestions undoable for me, unfortunately. (I commiserate with those whose ovens also broke down). My neighbor graciously allowed me the use of her oven today, so I am trying to do what I can this morning. I HATE going into yom tov with stress.
I have a wonderful repair man, whom I trust implicitly, and he cannot get the part needed. The thermostat on my old Magic Chef wall oven, went. They do not make this type of thermostat anymore. The oven was valuable to me because it had a continuous pilot (not electric ignition).
Convection ovens that run on electricity, will be good for before yom tov, but won’t help on yom tov. I cannot get a new oven installed before Shavuos, in any case, even were I able to afford one. But now the question is, any recommendations for wall ovens???? Pros and cons…May 24, 2012 2:09 pm at 2:09 pm #1017695

Nechomah, where do you get your bagels? We get ours at Holy Bagel, which I find pretty close to what I would get in America.May 24, 2012 7:45 pm at 7:45 pm #1017698
Thank you Tzaddiq. Once it is yom tov and I am not going back and forth to my neighbors to use their oven, I will be fine. Right now I am like a house on fire. I have literally been up and down the stairs maybe two dozen times today. My only rest stop was posting in the CR briefly today. I happen to LOVE yomim tovim, and the more company I have the better I like it. I am looking at this tiny (in the grand scheme of things) nisayon as a kapara for something else. It just is the timing that was the problem.May 24, 2012 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #1017699
Anyone from out of NY know of ovens that still have continuous pilots? Or can any oven you know of, possibly be modified to never shut off the pilot?May 24, 2012 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #1017700
Taka – I get mine from Heimishe Bagels, where they have different hechsher. Also good bagels and decent price. There’s also Bush Bagel now on Bar Ilan. Not bad but more expensive. They sell cream cheese there also.May 29, 2014 9:11 am at 9:11 am #1017701SayIDidIt™Participant
Okay people, whaccha eatin this Yom To?

We’re out for the day meal, and home for the night meal. I’m not sure what’s on the menu, but I know there will be Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream in the freezer for dessert. We still get our bagels from Holy Bagel – just picked them up this afternoon and popped them in the freezer when we got home.
