Shvat, 5768 שבט,
Looking back, here's a list of all the previous KCC's: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 and 25.
The Kosher Cooking Carnival is in its third year already. It's not just a "recipe carnival." It includes posts about all different aspects of kosher foods, including:
Holiday Foods and History
Cookbook and Restaurant Reviews
And, of course, recipes
There is no limit to the amount of posts you can send, as long as they fit the criteria. You may also send in links to other bloggers' posts.
If you're interested in hosting a Kosher Cooking Carnival, please don't be shy. It's great fun; just let me know which month you want. The calendar is filling. Food History is hosting February, frumhouse is taking March, and someone has "penciled in" May. Please let me know.
Soccer Dad, recently retired from being the master minding Havel Havelim, sent me this post about how those not part of the "kosher scene," just don't understand. He also sent this post from Pillage Idiot about faux traif.
"Extreme Weather" requires extremely good, weather-fitting food, and Leora's vegetable soup is better than chicken soup on a cold night, IMHO. She, also, blogged a nice DT (Dvar Torah) about the Korban Peasach.
In theory, leaving food cooking in a crockpot before going to work should be like having a wife at home. Experiment #1. Here's more on the saga.
Frum Teacher's Chicken in mushroom sauce looks great!
If we are what we eat, then think about how special it is to use Shivat Haminim, the Seven Species of Food Grown in Eretz Yisrael, for healing, as I heard about on TU B'Shvat.
This bread from burekaboy — seems just my speed. I have to try it!!
Try these simple treats from Renegade Kosher.
The Comic Torah's Buried Chicken is definitely worth trying.
Challah Recipes tells us how to stuff Thanksgiving Turkey.
Mr Bagel asks Is Kosher Food Safer? posted at Kashrut News.
Soccer Dad's home becomes a Pre-shabbos bake shop every Friday. If I'm ever in his part of the world… hint! Hint!
Luigi's is a nice Jerusalem Italian style dairy restaurant. Look at the pictures, food included.
Care2 tells us about root vegetables. So, it's not a blog; the information is important, and it's kosher!
For want of olive oil, the Sambookie Restaurant chain may have lost a customer!
Two of Barbara's recipes can be found on Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen, muffin meatloaf and nana Cecelia's Harvard beets.
Betsy Teutsch makes Happy Vegetarian Family WonTon Soup for her family every Rosh Hashannah, but it's delicious all year, too.
Since we're talking holidays, don't forget to check your Chametz inventory, so you won't be surprised just before Passover. "Oops! how did all that pasta and breakfast cereal get in my pantry? How can I cook them all together?"
Elisson's MR. DEBONAIR SHARES A RECIPE is a herring lover's dream.
Annette Berlin posted a perfectly Fast and Simple Tortilla Pie, which I must try.
One thing you shouldn't try, unless they've improved things, is the Prime Grill Restaurant in the Prima Hotel in Tel Aviv.
I must thank Juggling Frogs for sending me Hug the Rav haMachshir. It seems like the Mashgiach has a tougher job than a teacher. Hard to believe!
When the weather is cold, there's nothing better than Easy, One-Pot Vegetable Soup. Actually, I like it in the summer, too. I just use lighter vegetables, not so many root ones.
Carolyn sent Fruminsane Prices: 8 Dollars for Frozen Gefilte Fish posted at Samurai Mohel. Pesach is always a time when prices go up for no real reason, or go higher than the actual cost.
Artichoke and avocado, two foods I had neither heard of, nor eaten, before living in Israel. Both are very easy to prepare.
Food History, next month's host has an interesting series on Vegetarian food and people’s lives in the late 19th century.
That's it for this month. February, KCC #27, will be hosted by Food History. If you're interested in hosting a future KCC, please let me know, shilohmuse at yahoo dot com. Please submit your posts and any others you deem suitable for KCC via blog carnival.
Thanks to all of you, and please post and link this edition of KCC to your blog.
