BERRY PIE WITH CRUMBLE TOPPING:

This is the easiest pie and everyone always LOVES it.

Ingredients:
Pie Crust (I use a deep dish frozen pie crust.)
Berries (fill it with your choice of berries, I use blueberries and raspberries. My sister likes to pair up strawberries with peaches. You can use frozen or fresh depending on season…and price!)
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 stick of margarine

Directions:
Cook the pie crust for about 10 minutes on 350′. Then remove from oven and allow to cool off. Place the berries in the pie crust. Combine the sugar, flour and maragarine in a bowl. Crumble it together with ur hands then sprinkle on top of the filling. Bake on 350′ for about 30 min or until crust looks golden. You can serve this with ice cream and it’s seriously the best thing ever.

Tel Aviv market a bonanza from ordinary to exotic (Chicago Tribune)

TEL AVIV — Visiting a food market in a far-flung destination is a great way to get a sense of the people who live there. Israel is no exception. The market in Tel Aviv, Israel’s largest city, showcases the small desert country’s agricultural innovations and the immigrant backgrounds of many Israeli residents.

Tel Aviv’s Carmel market, also known as Shuk Ha’Carmel, is close to the shore and a short walk down Allenby Street from the city’s hotel area. It’s part flea market, with vendors selling clothes, trinkets, cosmetics and cigarettes — there’s something quirky about seeing Camel cigarettes for sale in a place where you often see real camels — but mostly it’s a foodie haven of dried fruit, exotic spices, local olive oil, imported cheeses and fresh fish, meat and poultry. You also could spend your time dealing with the more immediate needs of an empty stomach by visiting stalls that sell persimmon smoothies, imported chocolates, mounds of colorful candies, fresh falafel, halva, lamb shawarma and borekas, the salty stuffed Turkish puff pastries that seem to be everywhere in Israel.

Tel Aviv chef Yair Feinberg, 35, gives market tours to travelers as part of his culinary business Fein Cook. He also offers cooking classes, specialty dinners and works on an Israeli television version of “Iron Chef.” Feinberg, the son of Argentine immigrants, grew up on a kibbutz in Israel’s Negev region and trained to be a chef at L’Institut Paul Bocuse in France. He later worked in several Michelin-star-receiving restaurants in Paris, Provence, France, and Tuscany, Italy, before returning to Israel in 2005.

It’s easy to wander the market alone and relish your solo discoveries. But a trip with someone like Feinberg can add insight and explanations about what you are seeing.

Take the giant lemons, for instance. After sampling some of the largest and juiciest clementines I’d ever tasted, I was convinced I was in the land of giant fruit when I came across what I was sure were the largest lemons I’d ever seen — about the size of a 16-inch softball.

Purim is over, but you can still enjoy these savory treats: Savory Hamantaschen + Chocolate Raspberry Hamantash!

I adore Purim. Any holiday that encourages dressing up, eating large amounts of candy and drinking alcohol gets a thumbs up from me. I don’t like to eat Hamantaschen though. The three cornered pastry is a holiday treat and is traditionally filled with poppy seeds and various jams. Devouring it is symbolic of overcoming evil.(more on that HERE) I do like to engage in all the festivities and since I run a food blog, I felt it was necessary for me to bake some. I like chocolate and savory foods, so I came up with the following three versions that were in the spirit of the holiday but tastier than the usual selection.

1. Bleeding Hamantaschen: These chocolate and raspberry filled pastries were decadent but due to the raspberry juices leaking out during the baking process, they resembled bleeding hearts. Which works for me since my fam and I are dressing up as pirates this Purim. They may look messy but they taste divine!

2. Mediterranean Hamantaschen: Caramelized onions, tomato, basil and goat cheese make these the perfect appetizer to serve this holiday. I had to resist eating all of them long enough to take the photo!

3. Taco Hamantaschen: These came about by accident, as I had leftover taco meat and spinach from dinner and decided to use them along with some ravioli dough that I had in the freezer. The dough gets nice and crispy in the oven which makes these taste like real tacos!

“Five levels of Soul” by Alisa Poplavskaya

© Copyright 2012 Alisa Poplavskaya All Rights Reserved

“The individual human being is like a wave on an ocean. From the surface each wave appears unique, independent, and transient. Yet beneath the surface all waves are one , interdependent, and eternal. From the perspective of the surface, each wave is born, runs its course, and dies. From the deeper perspective of the ocean there is no birth, no separate life, no death.

KISS ME, I’M JEWISH auf arte

Kiss Me, I’m Jewish und Musik von JEWDYSSEE

Der junge Rabbiner Zevi Ives und seine Frau Sara verkörpern die derzeitige Aufbruchstimmung, die unter den jungen Juden Europas herrscht. Sie mischen mit ihrer Organisation für Jüdische Studenten in Europa (ECJS) das jüdische Leben auf dem Kontinent auf. Ihre Mission: Jude sucht Jüdin. Viermal im Jahr rufen sie: “Party Like a Jew”, und Tausende jüdischer Singles folgen ihnen zu den Single-Wochendenden, die sie in ganz Europa organisieren.
In der dritten Generation nach der Schoah breitet sich die Vielfalt jüdischen Lebens wieder kraftvoll in den Metropolen Europas aus. Kreativ, vernetzt, selbstbewusst und unternehmungshungrig treten junge Jüdinnen und Juden ihr reiches kulturelles Erbe an. Sie brechen über 60 Jahre nach dem Holocaust auf, um zu erwecken, was auch von ihren Eltern verdrängt und verschüttet wurde. Auf der Suche nach einer eigenen jüdischen Identität finden sie neue, zeitgemäße Formen und Inhalte. Sie tun dies im Bewusstsein, als Juden leben zu wollen, und auch, um von ihrer Umgebung als Juden erfahren zu werden.
Die Dokumentation hält fest, was es bedeutet, für 400 jüdische Singles aus ganz Europa ein Event zu organisieren, bis die Flirtlustigen schließlich anreisen, um den Spagat zwischen Thora und Speed-Dating zu wagen.
