Years ago I used to put a stuffing into the cavity of the turkey or chicken that I was roasting. But then there was a lot of information about this that it was not really the best idea for food safety. I am not a food safety expert but I decided to make my stuffing in a casserole dish so now it is kind of a savoury bread pudding…but I still call it bread stuffing!Continue reading “Challah Bread Stuffing”

I saw this recipe recently on foodiecrush.com and thought it would be great for a vegetarian meal but I served it as a side salad with a frittata!
I love pasta salad, but the problem is sometimes I find that the pasta is quite tasteless & worse for me is if it is undercooked…or overcooked I suppose! I realize I don’t love the vegetables in there either…I am not being critical of other peoples pasta salads…I just wanted to make mine a bit different & see how it turned out.
I am having company for dinner tonight.. & cold not decide what to make a side dish with the chicken… so, ha, I decided to look through my own blog for some recipe that I might have forgotten about! & I found this! I love it..
My mom made Kasha a lot!!!! It was a staple in out house…kind of like pasta in some other houses…. & I had no idea what Kasha actually was when I was a kid, now I know it is roasted buckwheat My aunt made Kasha Varnishkes.. which is kasha & tradition Ashkenazi Jewish dish that combines Kasha & small bow-tie pasta….. it is so good.
I posted this recipe several months ago, but it is so delicious I wanted to share it again. A good winter side dish or anytime of year, but I think it is especially good as a side dish for any roasted meat or fish.
