Chewy Date Bars - Recipe of the week

As this shabbat it Tu B’shevat I would like to share with you a recipe that I tried this week that I got from one of my sister shluchot in milano. I am giving you the recipe as I received it and tried it, however i plan to use only have the sugar the next time I make them as it was  sweet.


 Chewy Date Bars


500gm pitted dried dates, chopped

1 cup water

1 cup granulated sugar

½ cup fresh lemon juice

3 cups rolled oats

2 ½ cups all purpose flour

1 ¾ cups packed brown sugar

¾ teaspoon baking soda

¾ teaspoon salt

395 gm margarine, melted


Preheat oven to 180° F. Generously butter a 9 x 12 inch pan.

Combine dates and water in a saucepan. Cook at a low boil for 5 minutes, until mixture is as thick as mashed potatoes. Stir in sugar and remove from heat. Add lemon juice and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, mix together oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Add melted butter to dry mixture. Stir to evenly moisten.

Spread half oat mixture in baking pan to form an even layer. Cover evenly with all date mixture. Spread remaining oat mixture over top.

Bake about 40 minutes, until top is golden brown and pebbly. The edges should start caramelizing. Set aside to cool, in pan on rack, about 1 hour. Run a sharp knife along inside edges to loosen. Invert, trim edges, and cut into squares.

Baked Chicken Wings - Recipe of the Week

When I buy my chickens, I buy them in bulk. The butcher divide the different parts for me. Instead of getting whole chicken breasts he debones it for me so I can make schnitzel. Therefore I am left with wings. Lots of wings. As they were piling up in my freezer I came up with the brilliant idea to serve them when I have big crowds. So I searched for a recipe and I came up with this really easy but good recipe. Courtesy of one of my best internet friends www.cooks.com

Baked Chicken Wings


¾ cup white wine

½ cup soy sauce

½ cup white sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 teaspoon garlic powder

15 chicken wings


Clean chicken wings

Mix all the ingredients together besides chicken together. Place the chicken in a pan and pour the sauce over it;

Bake on 170° for about 1 ½ -2 hours. Turn several times while baking.



Apple Crumble - Recipe of the week

I was looking for a desert recipe that was in the category of cake but not as heavy and fattening as cake.

I think this apple crumble fits that description. Thank you Mushkie W for the recipe and inspiration.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Apple Crumble


6 baking apples

1 cup oats

1 cup flour

1/2 cup oil

2/3 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon



Preheat the oven to 175° and grease a pan.

Peel and cut the apples in small pieces and place them in the pan.

Mix the rest of the ingredients and place on top of the apples

Bake for 45 min or until the apples are soft.




Shepherd's Pie - Recipe of the week

Since half of this recipe is in the previous post you get two (actually 3)  recipes this week.

 Shepherd's Pie


Version #1

Cooked meat from the Sloppy Joe Recipe

5 potatoes

Ketchup/tomato sauce


Salt and pepper

Version #2

Cooked meat from the Sloppy Joe Recipe

2 cups of rice cooked

1 eggplant

1 zucchini

Ketchup/tomato sauce


Olive oil


Version #1

Peel and boil the potatoes. When the potatoes are ready drain them but leave a bit of water to mash them instead of putting margarine in them. Mash them and season with salt and pepper.

Preheat the oven to 180°

Grease a deep pan slightly. Place a thin layer of ketchup/tomato sauce. Then make layers of potatoes and meat and if you would like you can add ketchup/sauce in between the layers. You should end with  potatoes. Brush the top with and egg and bake for a 1/2 hour to 45 minutes.

Version #2

Preheat the oven to grill on 200°

Cut the eggplant and zucchini length wise in thin strips.

Brush with olive oil And place on a flat tray to broil, till the vegetables are soft and a bit grilled.

Turn the oven to 180° on normal a baking program.

Grease a deep pan slightly. Place a thin layer of ketchup/tomato sauce then make layers of the rice, vegetables and meat and if you would like you can add ketchup/sauce in between the layers. End with vegetables, and bake for a 1/2 hour to 45 minutes.

This is more of a family dinner food. They both can fall apart easily when serving especially version #2. However the taste beats the presentation.


Sloppy Joe

This recipe is one of my favorite recipes. I love the taste and the fact that you can use it in so many different ways.

 I like it as is; a meat sauce over rice or pasta, however you can also use the meat for a kinish or for Shepherd's Pie.

 Sloppy Joe


2 medium onions
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 kilo chopped meat
2 tablespoon fresh or frozen basil
Salt and pepper to taste.
(Other spices that I use are cumin, garlic powder all spice….)
I prefer Ketchup but you can use tomato sauce as well.     

Sauté onions till they are medium to dark brown. Chop the peppers in small pieces and add them to the onions. Cover and let them cook until they are tender, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile spice the meat with the basil, salt and pepper (and any other spices that you wish) add the meat when the peppers are tender mix the meat occasionally. When the meat is all cooked add ketchup.

Sloppy Joe taste yummy with rice or spaghetti. It freezes well and defrost well.
