This Jewish treat is a hybrid of sweet roll, swirl bread, and coffee cake. It's a sweet yeast dough that you roll out, fill, and roll up like a jelly roll, then cut, twist, and bake in a loaf pan. Don't worry: It looks fancy (and it IS a little messy), but it's seriously easy to do. And once you get the dough down, you can try it with other fillings.
Skyline Lentil Chili
Serve chili over spaghetti and top with chopped onion, finely shredded Cheddar cheese, kidney beans, and Tabasco® sauce. I used to love Skyline Cincinnati-style chili. When I went vegetarian I came up with this Skyline lentil chili to give me that Skyline taste. I use green or black lentils as the protein where standard Cincinnati-style would use ground meat. Even though I've gone back to eating meat this is still my preferred way to get my Skyline fix.
Sassy Chicken Enchilada Dip
My sister-in-law made this for a holiday, and it was a quick solution for me to use at a party the following night. It is a quick and easy appetizer, and different than the rest of the dips we are used to! Definitely classified as a keeper! Serve with tortilla chips.
Raspberry Streusel Tart
Cover any leftover tart (if any) lightly with an aluminum foil tent. Refrigerate for up to 2 days. Kirschwasser is a cherry-flavored liqueur. Instead of kirschwasser try using framboise, a raspberry-flavored liqueur. Currant or seedless raspberry preserves may be used in place of apricot preserves.
White Chocolate and Passion Fruit Cheesecake
TRUST ME ON THIS -- Anyone who likes white chocolate will LOVE this cheesecake! great for dinner guests and parties. This cheesecake will keep (removed from the pan, in an airtight container) for up to 3 days. Takes a while to make but every bit of it is worth it in the end!
Mashed Potato Souffle
The most amazing mashed potatoes you'll ever have! A little cream cheese, scallions, and Tabasco®! Absolutely divine! It takes a little time, but well worth it. Don't go too light on the Tabasco®, it really adds GREAT flavor!
Smoked Bacon and Irish Cheese Mash
I have this on my menu at the moment. I serve it straight from the oven under a juicy ribeye steak. It's glorious when the oozing cheese mixes with the juices from the ribeye. It's very popular with my customers and my girlfriend loves it. Why not try it with a big lump of mature Cashel blue cheese melted on the top and a wild mushroom sauce poured over it all? Very heavy and full of fat but great as a treat every now and then.
Cream of Chicken and Gnocchi Soup
