*Have there been complaints that your soup is too greasy? You can eliminate that problem by cooling your soup in the fridge overnight. Skim the crystallized fat with a spoon and discard before reheating.

*Want to serve low-cal soup hot and fresh? No problem! Just throw in a few ice cubes and see how the fat collects around them, making it a snap to remove and discard fat and ice at once.

*If you know your pot will boil over and dirty the gas range, solve the problem by smearing some oil or margarine all around the inner side of your pot above the height of its. This way the liquid in the pot won’t be able to “climb” past the oily boundary you’ve set.

Mindy-052413-Oil*How to get rid of the distinctive odor from your hands after cutting raw onions or garlic? Rub them in one of the following: lemon juice, salt, baking soda or on a stainless steel surface.

*Your cake has “overflowed” while baking in the oven? Probably means you used too much baking powder or maybe you filled the pan more than three quarters of its height. Clean up and try again.

*Wondering why your chocolate cake came out looking like “kriyas Yam Suf“? Could be because of the high sugar content in your recipe. You can fill the “creek” by spreading whip cream on top – no one will notice the difference!

*Most important tip: Remember to ask Hashem for success while working in the kitchen. Your job to build a beautiful home might seem only physically oriented but it’s these very tasks that connect us with the spirituality we women crave. So go ahead, give it your all.

Oh, and mazal tov! As a wedding gift, I’m including my great chocolate cake recipe for you to try. It’s quick and scrumptiously moist even though it’s made with whole wheat flour. Make it for Shabbos and you’ll see what I mean!

Quick Chocolate Coconut Cake

Ingredients

1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
⅔ cup cocoa
1½ cups sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
100 grams shredded coconut (optional)
½ cup water
⅔ oil
4 eggs

Directions

Combine all dry ingredients (including coconut) in a large bowl. In a medium bowl mix water, oil and eggs. Add to dry ingredients and mix till batter forms.

Line a 10″x10″ baking pan with baking paper and fill with the batter. Bake at 350° F for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs on it.

Good luck and enjoy!

Regardless of age, parents play an important role in their children’s lives.

We peel away one layer after the next, our eyes tear up and it becomes harder and harder to see as we get closer to our innermost insecurities and fears.

Some Mountain Jews believe they are descendents of the Ten Lost Tribes and were exiled to Azerbaijan and Dagestan by Sancheriv.

Yom Tov is about spending time with your family. And while for some families the big once-in-a-lifetime experience is great, for others something low key is the way to go.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

The plan’s goal is to provide supportive housing to 200 individuals with disabilities by the year 2020.

Despite being one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the U.S. – the estimated Jewish population is 70-80,000 – Las Vegas has long been overlooked by much of the Torah world.

She was followed by the shadows of the Six Million, by the ever so subtle awareness of their vanished presence.

Pesach is so liberating (if you excuse the expression). It’s the only time I can eat anywhere in the house, guilt free! Matzah in bed!

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Alternative assessments are an extremely important part of understanding what students know beyond the scope of tests and quizzes.

 It’s no joke – Pesach is looming closer and there’s still so much to do. This is definitely not a time to rest! Who isn’t putting in their “all” these days? But there is just so much you can do. Keep in mind that the key to success is in the hands of Hashem, so […]

For me, there’s nothing like making challahs for Shabbos. But I can’t say it’s always been the height of my week. There was a time when baking fluffy, light-as-a-feather challahs was a total mystery to me.

Yeast dough is considered one of the most basic but complicated of the dough family. Just think of the first cakes you made – I’m almost sure they weren’t yeast cakes.
But mine were!

It’s all over.

The orchestra is still, the lights are dimmed. Your simcha outfits hang in your closet, silent witnesses to a time you will treasure in your mind and heart forever.

It happens to all of us.

I call them “kitchen mishaps” and they can range from the small to large. Sometimes they come in extra small and other times they might be XXL just like our clothes sizes. But as I said, they happen to us all.
