Kosher by Design - Teens and 20-Somethings
As part of our Fabulous Random Giveaway for an autographed copy of Susie Fishbein's newest cookook, Kosher By Design Teens and 20-Something, Susie graciously agreed to answer three reader submitted questions.
In addition to the randomly picked winner's question, we read through the many interesting entries received, selected the following questions and sent them to Susie.
Is there a way to increase the hot pretzel challah recipe in order to make enough to make a bracha? Submitted by Amy Jacobs, winner of the random drawing.
I read in one of Susie's cookbooks about cutting butternut squash by rocking a big knife back & forth, but it doesn't work for me. I'm seeing great recipes this time of year for pumpkin and squash, but I have great difficulty cutting them open. (Last week I hammered a cheap knife through a butternut squash with a rubber mallet out of desperation.) Any other advice for opening these tough squash? Submitted by D Schwab.
Is there a 'rule of thumb' for knowing which foods freeze well after they're prepared? Submitted by Jasmine.
Observant Jews serve chicken at least once a week (for the most part), and it is really hard to keep coming up with chicken recipes which are different, and which appeal to family members. Susie, what are your top three (3) (i.e., the ones that you serve most frequently) chicken recipes? Submitted by Cheryl E.
We thank Susie for answering the questions and the many readers who sent in fabulous questions! We had such fun going through the questions – all of them were great!
We have searched the world of cookbooks and selected some of the most exciting, enticing, fun, entertaining and informative to share in our popular feature Featured Cookbook.
Some of these cookbooks have recipes with non-kosher ingredients. No worries! KosherEye and our team of cookbook authors, chefs and foodies will help you convert these ingredients to kosher substitutes. In fact we are providing an initial, basic list of kosher substitutions for you.
