KCC #60 Kislev Cooking Carnival

Welcome to the 60th Kosher Cooking Carnival. Tonight, as I post this it is Rosh Chodesh Kislev. On the 25th of Kislev (December 1 this year) we will light the first candle of Chanukah. Chanukah conjures up the  cold crisp air and the smell of potato latkes frying. HA!  That's what the calendar says and the sign that greeted us at our local mall on Friday says "When it's cold outside  the Rehovot Mall is the warmest there is!" The only thing is we were there because it's airconditioned and it was too hot to play outside in the playground so we took refuge in the mall. As we wait for winter to reach Rehovot here is this month's edition of the Kosher Cooking Carnival!

The Kosher Cooking Carnival KCC is a monthly blog carnival, a "round-up" of blog posts about all aspects of kosher food and cooking.  It includes Jewish Law, customs, kosher restaurants, cookbooks and kosher recipes, too.  Every month it's on another blog.  
Next month Mirj of Miriyummy will make her KCC debut.  
If you'd like to host an edition, please contact Batya.

And speaking of Batya check out Shimshonit's interview with her at My favorite foodies, part III: Batya 

Anything Kosher? Everything Kosher!
Chaviva, with her usual wit and candor wrote Kosher Fest: The Highs, The Lows  about meeting the giants of Kosher cookbook writing and searching for gluten-free and kosher eats. at Just call me Chaviva.


Batya asks What Could Be Traif -Wrong/Forbidden- About That Innocent Plain Yogurt? and you"ll see the detailed answer at Shiloh Musings.

Special Occasions
Irresistible Forces posted at Miriyummy, is much more than a recipe (although it's a great recipe for one of my personal favorite dishes) it's a post full of warmth and loving memories of Miriam's mom presented on her first yahrzeit

Kosher Innovations

Leah Aharoni proposed a novel alternative to sandwiches for Fast and Nutritious Lunch Bag Idea posted at Ingathered.

Leora Wenger points us to her friend  Debbie's blog Bayit and Garden for a very original recipe. C is for Cookie, That's Good Enough for Me using some unusual ingredients. 

Why buy Teriyaki? is the question at Adventures in Mama-Land, and Jay3fer proceeds to give us  "Super-easy teriyaki sauce, two ways, for any occasion. Why buy when you can make your own for pennies in less time than it takes to open a jar???" Go for it!

Leah Lipszyc expresses Teacher Appreciation in a sweet and creative way, see what I mean at chossid's photoblog.

Keeping kosher means you never eat anything that's not kosher so when Cary Anderson of Eating Healthy proposes a Part Time Vegan Diet "just a few days a week, every week" it seems to go against our grain, but it's worth giving some thought. 
And in the new tool department: "The under-$10 tool that will revolutionize your baking"  It’s here! The WHISK is here! posted at Adventures in BreadLand, "And believe me (Jay3fer ), I don't use words like "revolutionize" lightly!"

Economical use of left-overs

Jay3fer sent us Easy Fall “Whatever You’ve Got” Beef Stew (pressure cooker) from Adventures in Mama-Land, saying, "A hearty fall stew, Canadian-style. Use leftover veggies and Shabbos soup (or roast vegetables ahead of time to make this fast and easy!)."

Every day meals
"Menu Planning Monday isn't my own meme, but I've been participating for a while and there are not enough kosher blogs on there! I'd love to see more kosher home cooks adding themselves to the roster of weekly menu planners... mostly just as inspiration for my own family's meals!" Jay3fer shows you what it's all about at Adventures in Mama-Land: mpm

Hadassah Sabo Milner of In the Pink sent in Kosher Jambalaya in the Crockpot which sounds really interesting. I don't have a crockpot but I imagine one could just cook it slowly in a regular pot, right? 

Leora Wenger teaches usto make a tasty lemony millet dish in Millet with Carrots and Zucchini posted at Here in HP

Ilana-Davita has been using curry a lot recently with tuna  and with vegetables

"Does the world need another chocolate cake recipe?" asks Jay3fer and answers:  "Well, maybe not, but this one feeds lots of people!" so here it is And in case you need a BIG yummy chocolate cake recipe. While you're at it check out her Pareve Pumpkin Pie for Shabbos posted at Adventures in BreadLand, saying, "And you thought great pumpkin pie couldn't be pareve..." 

Restaurant Reviews 
Batya at me-ander gets around and reports It Was Worth Checking Out Five Restaurants... and also Salad in Malcha Mall.
Leah Lipszyc's new favorite restaurant in Crown Heights at Basil - chossid - has beautiful pictures but doesn't really tell us much about the place, too bad.

Cookbook Reviews
Chaviva presents Cooking w/Giveaway, Susie Style! posted at Just call me Chaviva, saying, "I review Susie Fishbein's new cookbook, and host a cookbook giveaway!"
Batya presents Yes, It's Time, To Choose a Rhyme! posted at me-ander, saying, "Help me choose the winner!"
Mara presents Cookbook Review: Kosher by Design Teens & 20-Somethings posted atKosher on a Budget, saying, "My review of the new Susie Fishbein cookbook."
