200 grams butter. 1 packet matzo meal 1 cup brown and white sugar mixed. 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 tablespoon wine.
Mix all and press into a pastry dish. Place in the freezer for an hour.
Filling. 1 regular container 5% white cheese 2 eggs 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. 1/4 cup sugar. Mix the above ingredients and fill the pie dish. Bake in a medium oven for 20 minutes, until brown. You can serve with a chocolate grated over this or with ice cream, on the side.
QUICK AND EASY VANILLA PUDDING.
Take a packet of vanilla pudding and mix as directed. Fill the pie base. Cut up strawberries, berries and some orange rind. Cover with whipped cream and serve…….
I use one cup of desiccated coconut and mix it with 150 grams of butter and a teaspoon of grated lemon or orange peel. Place in the freezer for an hour.
Fillings. !. Cream and fresh fruits, with some granadilla pips. 2. A layer of apricot jam and cut up pears, apricot jelly and decorate with a little coconut. 3. Fruit jelly with sliced peaches in it. 4. Ice cream mixed with 2 tablespoons Halva and 1 tablespoon of chocolate spread 5. Bake with a filling of pureed apples and slices of apple, a dash of cinnamon and a few chopped almonds.
FRESH FRUIT SALAD.
Fresh fruit salad is always welcome at the end of a festive meal. Simply cut up all the fruits in season. Add half a cup of orange juice and some granadilla pips. I marinate some pine kernels in a little wine overnight. I add these and they look good and taste fabulous.
Present the fruit in a different way. I use tall long glasses. Put a strawberry in the bottom, a small meringue, then the fruit and end off with a blob of ice cream or cream. If it is Parave, you can simply fill with fruit and strawberries and a meringue on the top.
CHILDRENS CHOCOLATE MATZO SLICES.
Let the kids do this. 10 slices matzo. Soak in a shallow dish of milk, with a little vanilla added to it. Lay the matzo slices in a pie dish. Now beat two cups of cream and nutella chocolate spread. Cover the matzo with it. Then another matzo layer, chocolate and chopped nuts or strawberries. Matzo…… and create layers until it is done. Refrigerate and cut into slices. Decorate with chocolate nibbles. The kids love doing this.
I was brought up in rural South Africa and live in Israel on a farm. I feel lucky to have had earth and sky as my scenic world. I have lived with rainbow people and learned a great deal from all of them. My fascination with people, nature, environment, flowers, animals, books, theatre, films, music and art, gave me a hunger for more learning each day. I lectured over the years on health, beauty, natural cosmetics, perfumes, vegetarian and natural foods and supplements, and products that are not tested on animals and are ecologially friendly. I am active in volunteering work and have done this for over forty years. I find creativity a gift to share and it is a way of finding joy in simple things. My family, children and grandchildren are the joy of my life, and my friends are treasures I respect and devote time to. Meditation and healing are part of my life time studies and my health store that I started in the late sixties was a vision I knew that would grow and feed many minds with food for thought. I believe that every experience helps us to grow and learn. The difficult ones and the unexpected hurdles have given me new insights to think about and cope with. My day is what I create and at the end of it, I balance it all and say THANK YOU to my Creator. I appreciate the good earth and would like to pass a better world to our chilren and grand children. Thankyou for your questions and I look forward to sharing many moments with you all.
