Season's Greetings!

 




It's that time again to binge on movie trilogies or watch something new during the holiday season.  Create something new. We are onto the last two weeks of fall as trees stretch their barren arms and fingers to the sky.  A hush hovers over the land.  












                     Coffee is plentiful. A Yeti knows how to start the morning
right, 
and maybe they indeed drink coffee!













Lights up and down the street, they wrap the home
in warmth and cheer. Take a walk to enjoy the solitude and splendor of the season.










Coca Cola Polar Bears with a smile.

















                             Hot chocolate with a loved one to close the day
                 while it snows,
 and snows outside. Let it snow
                          and snuggle  closer.











Or a gingerbread latte is above and beyond
















A phenomenon whycats like trees and
shiny breakables.  Perhaps
they think, "Ah they brought in nature for me!"





























 Take the time to take in the solitude,  read a
new book, or drink hot tea to close the day











Reminders of winter and angels all around from their tiny
messengers















Remember times gone by they come around
again with sounds of the season reminding us
to be giddy like children. Embrace that to heart.  
And sing songs we remember.

 Pear Tarte Tatin


What do I do with a few extra pears that needed to either be used or thrown away?

PEAR TARTE TATIN

Use a round iron pan with an 18- or 20-cm diameter.

  • 5 small pears 
  • 1 lemon
  • ½ cup (or more) brown sugar
  • 50-70 gr. butter or margarine
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 packet vanilla sugar
  • 1 package (400 gr.) puff pastry, either dairy or parve

Egg wash:

  • 1 egg, beaten well

Peel the pears, then slice them in half and cut out the core with a melon baller.

Place the pear halves in a bowl and squeeze lemon juice on them. Use your fingers to coat all the pieces with the lemon juice. 

Add the brown sugar, and butter or margarine, in the iron pan. Add the cinnamon and vanilla sugar and heat over medium heat. Stir while heating until everything has dissolved and the mixture is smooth. 

Remove from the heat and arrange the pear halves inside the pan with the hollowed-out side facing down. 

On a floured work surface, roll out the puff pastry with a rolling pin. Cut out a piece of pastry dough that will cover the entire surface of the pan. (You can keep the rest of the dough in the fridge.) Press the edge of the dough down into the pan.

Brush the dough with the beaten egg and bake in an oven that has been preheated to 200° for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, place a serving plate upside down on top of the cake, then flip the cake over onto the serving plate. Let the caramel ooze over the sides of the cake. 

Level of difficulty: Easy-medium  Time: 30-40 minutes   Status: Parve or dairy

CHICKEN PATTIES AND VEGETABLES

Makes 16-20 patties. 

Ingredients 

  • 500 gr. ground chicken breast
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ bunch parsley
  • ½ bunch cilantro
  • 10 sprigs dill
  • 1 slice bread, soaked in water and squeezed well
  • 1 tsp. harissa
  • 1 Tbsp. pickled lemon spread
  • 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Directions

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Place the bowl in the fridge for 30 minutes. 

Pour a little olive oil on a griddle pan and heat over medium heat. 

Take little bits of the mixture and form patties with a diameter of 7 or 8 cm. or a bit larger. Place them on the griddle pan and fry them for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn brown. Serve hot. 

Alternatively, prepare your favorite tomato-based sauce and add the chicken patties to the sauce once you’ve fried them on the griddle pan. Shake the pot gently so that the sauce covers all the patties well. 

Level of difficulty: Easy-medium

Time: 1 hour, Status: Meat Dish
