Easy Summer Recipes And Tips


 


Marinating



  1. Marinades do not need to totally cover the food.  Allow ¼ to ½ cup of marinade for every 1-2 pounds of food.

  2. Marinade fish for not more than one hour.  Any more than that and the acidity of the marinade will begin to break down the texture of the fish. 

  3. Always discard marinade in which raw meat has been soaking.  Do not use it for basting.  If you want to have some for basting or dipping, make extra or take off some before you pour it over the meat. 

  4. Marinade chicken (boneless) for 1-2 hours, chicken (bone-in) 1 hour to overnight, and vegetables 30-60 minutes.

  5. Marinating any food is a breeze when you have the Tupperware Seasonserve container. You just place your food in, add your marinade and flip it over several times while the food absorbs all the flavors.

  


Easy Creamy Potato Soup


An easy creamy soup is welcome on most summer menus.  Try the following recipe for a quick lunch with a sandwich or add it to your dinner menu.   


 


Ingredients


2 potatoes, peeled and cubed               


3 squash, peeled and cubed


1 clove garlic, crushed


1 onion, diced


1 tbsp. olive oil


Salt and pepper to taste


 


Sauté fresh onion and garlic in oil. Add squash and potatoes to pot; add water to cover.  Cook for 20 to 30 minutes until vegetables are soft.  Use hand blender to puree soup in pot for creamy effect.  Serve hot with sprinkling of croutons or garlic bread. 


 


Winter Watermelon  


This dessert puts a different spin on watermelon.  It is a fun dessert to prepare and serve.  You will enjoy the compliments your guests will bestow upon you after eating this refreshing concoction!


 


Ingredients


½  gallon lime sherbet


½  gallon raspberry sherbet (or strawberry)


¾  -1 cup raisins or mini chocolate chips


 


         Allow the lime sherbet to become soft enough to be smoothed into a Tupperware bowl as to form rind of watermelon.  Put into freezer as you soften and stir up raspberry sherbet with raisins or mini chocolate chips to make inside of watermelon.  Pour into “rind” and smooth over top.  Place seal on container and freeze overnight or until very hard.  Hold bowl in your hands until it comes out of the container.  Slice down from bottom to make halves, slice into thin slices or quarters for serving so that it looks like a watermelon.


 


Summer Pops


Pour mixture into molds.  Seal with sticks and seals.  Freeze at 0 degrees or colder for 3 hours or more.  Hold molds under warm water for a few seconds to loosen pops.


Here are several recipes for you to try. Some of them are dairy, but you can use pareve substitutions.


 



  • 1 can fruit cocktail – place in blender, liquid and all, blend and put in molds.

  • Any flavor instant pudding – use package directions and pour into molds before it sets.

  • Dreamsicles – 1 20oz. bottle orange soda, one 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk. Mix together and put in molds. (This recipe can also be made with root beer instead of orange soda, too)

  • Frozen Purple Cow – Whisk 1 cup milk with ¾ cup grape juice, ¼ cup sugar and ¼ cup lemon juice. Pour into molds and freeze. Only 62 calories per pop!

  • Butterscotchcicles – 1 package butterscotch instant pudding, 1 cup root beer, 1 ½ cups water.  Mix and pour into molds and freeze.

  • Punch and Cream – 1 cup Hawaiian Punch, 1 cup ice cream.  Mix together and pour into mold and freeze.

TIP: Put a terrycloth sweatband on a child’s wrist while eating any kind of ices and the wristband will catch all the drips.  Then just toss it into the washing machine.  (The wristband that is, not the child!)

While we all go to restaurants for a good meal, it is dessert, that final taste that lingers in your mouth, that is the crown jewel of any dining experience and Six Thirteen’s offerings did not disappoint.

Today, fifty years and six million (!) people later, Israel is truly a different world.

There will always be items that don’t freeze well – salads and some rice- or potato-based dishes – so you need to leave time to prepare or cook them closer to Yom Tov and ensure there is enough room in the refrigerator to store them.

In Uzbekistan, in the early twentieth century, it was the women who wore the pants.

This is an important one in raising a mentsch (and maybe even in marrying off a mentsch! listening skills are on the top of the list when I do shidduch coaching).

While multitasking is not ideal, it is often necessary and unavoidable.

Maybe now that your kids are back in school, you should start cleaning for Pesach.

The interpreter was expected to be a talmid chacham himself and be able to also offer explanations and clarifications to the students.

“When Frank does something he does it well and you don’t have to worry about dotting the i’s or crossing the t’s.”

“On Sunday I was at the Kotel with the battalion and we said a prayer of thanks. In Gaza there were so many moments of death that I had to thank God that I’m alive. Only then did I realize how frightening it had been there.”

Neglect, indifference or criticism can break a person’s neshama.

It’s fair to say that we all know or have someone in our family who is divorced.

How often does your family ask you: “What’s for dinner?” Here are some great ideas for traditional family favorites simply with a healthy makeover. Instead of being a short-order cook, follow these guidelines to help you prepare nutritious, delicious dinners everyone will enjoy.

It was a brisk fall day in late October some years ago when Chavy (name changed) decided that since the weather was perfect she would walk to work. She had, Baruch Hashem, just resumed her work schedule after being home for six weeks due to her maternity leave for the birth of her latest child. She felt the exercise was good for her, as it was only about a half mile to her job. She put all of her work papers into her knapsack and gingerly swung it over onto her back for the trek to work.

It was an ordinary day and Dovid (name changed) was preparing to catch the late afternoon EL AL flight to Eretz Yisrael. He had yahrzeit for his father and planned his trip so he’d arrive there just in time to join his brother at the kever. He parked his car in the area that facilitated a faster trip to JFK for his flight. Little did he know that he was being observed by a team of thieves who were “working” the Diamond District that day in order to rob the merchants of their goods.

Who said weekday dinners had to be boring? It’s simple to keep the fresh and fun with just a little preparation. Stock your kitchen with staples like whole-wheat pasta, organic fish, poultry, meats, and organic fruits and vegetables (go frozen if you can’t buy fresh).

Normally, I enjoy air travel. But the night before a recent flight to Los Cabos, Mexico, I developed an excruciating earache. I tried nursing it with organic eardrops, but by the time we arrived at the airport, the pain had only intensified.
