Sorry, I posted this under “Boro Park” and I thought it would come up under that forum name, therefore I did not mention that in the question. I don’t get the way this board runs yet.
They had it a few years ago and repeated it last year. I’ve been making it every year since and somtimes during the year. After you blend it you can freeze it in individual mousse cups. It will look very pretty.
If anyone can post the similar recipe Mishpacha had a few weeks ago for lemon ices I would appreciate it. Tia.
Omg chesedname you had me rotfl!! Thanx for that. I wish you would know how good that was for me! Be gebentched!
I forgot to write: mix all ingredients with a fork. Do not overmix. You don’t even need a bowl for this one if you mix it in the 9×13 pan.
I think anyone can get this right:
4 eggs – mix with a fork (do NOT beat or whip) only until yolks and whites are combined
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup chopped nuts
3/4 cup potato starch
Mix only until all ingredients are combined. Do no overmix. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. It comes out better in a tube pan but I usually use a 9×13 and it’s DELISH.
I plan to bake a few of these to have available before and during the “changing over” period so I don’t have to go beserk keeping track of who’s eating what, where.
You may not know this, but there is one restaurant in monsey (don’t know if anyone here knows monsey, but it’s in the Rockland Kosher Supermarket mall) where such a thing exists. There is actually a mechitzah down the middle; men on one side, women on the other. No jokes. Not really sure how a family would go out together to eat there.

FWIW, you are not describing it acurately. There is a small area behind the mechitza for those men who want to eat separately. It’s not like it’s a rule that the men go there and the women on the other side.
It’s actually good business sense, as a lot of the men there wouldn’t go grab a bite in a restaurant for lunch otherwise. Kol hakavod to them.
Very well said shev143. I agree completely. Haifagirl, so they’re not using “amazing” the way it is defined in the dictionary. It’s become slang for something beautiful.
I’m not implying that there is anything wrong with a moment’s silence. That was just my nervous self. It’s always good to think before you talk. Just to put you at ease so you can sleep tonite – have no fear. My husband and I ARE on speaking terms b”H.
“No one has yet answered *why* it’s disrespectful for the girl to start talking first.
The Wolf “
I can’t answer that. I was nervous that there would be an awkward silence and so I started talking before my husband had even a second to collect himself. And I’m so not the yabbermouth person. I was just nervous. Never even heard that the boy starts first.
I agree with those who wrote boys will be boys and will turn anything into a “weapon”. My boys are always making guns and swords out of clics and guess what? Because they never watch violence they think that when they “shoot” me I get all wet!
I can really say Rabbi Walletstein changed my life. I’m a regular woman in a big frum city with no trauma or drama in my life bH so you would never think I am such a changed person because there is nothing different about me on the outside. But on the inside and in my connection to Hashem I am completely inspired by yiddishkeit and have a different outlook on life in general now and on the purpose of our lives.
I listen to R Wallerstein’s shiurim all the time and they always give me a boost!
As an added bonus my housework is much less tedious and gets done so much more quickly when I have a shiur plugged into my ears.
I am ever grateful to Rabbi Wallerstein for making my life that is so full of blessings boruch Hashem, that much richer!
Last year I got really pretty boxes (lavendar) on sale at bakingboxes.com. They initial the box free of charge. I put in a napkin (silver and white), homemeade onion croissants, a small container of homemeade babaganush and one of olive spread, and a small party favor box filled with after-dinner mints. It looked really pretty and it’s good food instead of more candy and cake. (from my understanding, it’s actually better to give food that can be used for the seudas purim, so this definitely fits the bill.)
I would like to do it again this year. In fact I spent all of today baking the croissants. I just want to change the dips/spreads that I put in to be a little more colorful. Any ideas?
Thanks for both of the replies. I hope to try it using my own dough sometime soon.
lakewoodwife i would love to try to recipe for the lachmagene (?) you posted. You wrote “put the meat in the dough” can you please be a little more detailed? Like, should it look like pizza, like a bun, a croissant, hamantash…. Thanks
I love Poster’s idea. Those are my fondest memories of growing up (minus the mall and lunch part – never did anything like that). We didn’t have much, but the chol hamoed/midwinter days spent playing games together and having a really good family time are worth more than any ‘shtickiness’. I hope to recreate them, and on some level already am, for my kids bez”H.
I don’t recall ever being overly jealous of my friends’ glitzy descriptions of their escapades. Maybe a bit, but nothing unbearable. And we didn’t nudge our parents to keep up with the Cohenses. We knew we just couldn’t afford it and that was that. We weren’t sad about it AT ALL. I clearly remember that. It wasn’t even something that we hoped for.
I’m not talking about the good old days half a century ago either. Contrary to the image my screen name may present to you, I am a very young parent. I think the attitude of the children is dependant a lot on the attitude that the parents project.
Lol bombmaniac and ty for the compliment raisedeyebrow. We actually had a really nice cleaning lady who reminded us of mrs doubtfire and that’s what we called her.
I will say in my defense that bH I haven’t watched a movie in years.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Oh lol I just realized the irony (or appropriateness if that’s a word) of my first post being re: a man dressing up as a woman (Mrs. Doubtfire) lol.
I actually just discussed this question with my father re: a video production. Maybe on Purim it would be different. But for the purpose of the production I was told it is mutar for a man to dress as a woman if people will know despite the getup that this is a man who is dressed up.
