The 'Grand Slam" Edition of The Kosher Cooking Carnival

As one of the veteran hosts of Jewish Blog Carnivals and one of the very select few to have hosted all three, Havel Havelim, JPIX and my "baby" the Kosher Cooking Carnival, this month is special, yes, even for me.  Because this month, September, I've possibly insanely now with the posting of this 46th  edition of KCC, done the super grand slam of JBlogging.  Yes, all three in the same month, the same month as all most of the main Jewish Holidays.  Jack, Leora and I wouldn't mind if you'd like to join this very exclusive club.  And if hosting just isn't your thing, send in your links, please, because we wouldn't have Jewish Blog Carnivals if it weren't for the great jbloggers who submit their posts.  I sincerely thank you one and all.  HH, KCC and JPIX  are for all, so please don't keep them secret.  Blog about them and pass around the links.

    anything kosher!

    Annette Berlin presents Tomato Pesto Sauce posted at Craft Stew, saying, "I’m constantly experimenting with pasta sauces, and Tomato Pesto Sauce is my newest creation. To be honest, this sauce wasn’t hard to come up with. How could tomatoes and pesto NOT be delicious together?"


    Leah Lipszyc presents Kosher Recipes & Menus for South Beach Diet - Topic: Fruit Sorbet posted at Kosher Recipes & Menus for South Beach Diet, saying, "This is a great diet recipe, but if you want more calories for some reason, just use sugar instead of the fructose. Either way, it's great. I make this with sugar for Pesach."

    Risa presents Let them eat cupcakes! posted at Isramom, saying, "Cupcakes and the Jewish question"

    Mrs. S has a great sounding crumb bar recipe.

    Every day meals

    Ilana-Davita presents Pumpkin Soup posted at Ilana-Davita.

    Leora Wenger presents Crunchy Quinoa Salad posted at Here in HP.


    mominisrael presents Insects Keep Falling on My Head (on Sukkot, that is) posted at A Mother in Israel, saying, "Don't miss the comments about avoiding insecticides and other suggested solutions."

    I confirmed the medical advice about fasting with our local doctor.

    Jewish holiday food

    mominisrael presents Cooking Ingredient Spreadsheet | Cooking Manager posted at Cooking Manager, saying, "Combining cooking with modern technology!"

    Restaurant or Cookbook Reviews

    There's nothing like Jerusalem restaurants.  Here's a double review.

    I liked the food at the 2nd Annual JBlogger Convention. It's hard to please everybody.

    Don't buy cheap coffee; it's not worth it!

    traditional food

    Mimi, who will be hosting next month's KCC, presents I'm Cooking Cholent This Week posted at Israeli Kitchen.

    Jerrod Foster presents Grandma's Recipes: July 2009 posted at Grandma's Recipes.

    Ricki's mom posts some very necessary survival techniques for coping with all the cooking and preparation before the holidays.

    That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of
