Another Pre-Rosh Hashana Blogging---About FOOOOD

Hey everybody! I'm back for a quickie to let you know all about my cooking adventures for the day. About a month ago, I picked up the OU's cooking magazine (they give them out free!) and I was inspired by some of the recipes. So, here's what I made:

Applesauce Cake: It was the easiest thing in the world. Measure ingredients into mixer bowl. Put bowl into mixer. Turn mixer on. Watch as mixer magically combines all ingredients to perfection. Pour into bundt pan. Bake.
I've been pushing off using my beautiful Kitchenaid mixer for over 2 years and I finally found a recipe which seemed worthy. So there it is. I'm so sorry I didn't use it earlier. This baby is amazing.

Apple Cranberry baked apples!: Another easy breezy recipe! Core apples, dash in some cinnamon, fill with cranberry sauce, top with crumbles, bake.
The only complication here is that I impaled my hand while coring the apples. And by impale, I mean, sliced. It looked deep at first, so I was a little freaked out. But luckily the bleeding stopped pretty quickly, so I put on some neosporin and bandaids and let Yaakov finish the coring. :)

Now it turns out that the recipe for the crumble part of the apples was way more than I needed, so I'm going to take it to my parents house and see about making it into a pie. (I might use some canned pears or peaches or something like that.

Finally, the main course: Honey chicken! I haven't made it yet, but I've got chicken waiting at my parents' house. It looks very easy though. Honey, soy sauce, olive oil, pepper and garlic powder. mix ingredients, pour over chicken, bake at 350 for an hour (or until juices run clear?).

Doesn't it sound wonderful? My dad may supplement by making some veggies, and I'll probably make another chicken option. Either way, this promises to be a yummy meal. MMMmmmm....

May your year be sweet like honey, full of good things like a pomegranate, a fish head...

Shana tovah u'metukah! (Have a good and sweet new year!)

you have a kitchen aid and you don't use it? those things cost like $300! I shouldn't talk, I have a bread maker I don't use. I probably would use it more often if I had space for it in my kitchen.
Glad the applesauce cake was yummy.
