Sorrel Borscht (Shchav, Shchavel) – Recipe

If you like tangy flavored soups, you will love Sorrel Borscht (Shchav). My first experience with tasting this dish was in a Polish restaurant, while visiting my family in Poland. My husband really liked the slightly tangy taste of this soup, so I have been preparing it during the sorrel growing season. The main ingredient is sorrel, of course, a simple herb but not easily found in a grocery store, but rather in a specialty food shop, or a garden (your own or your friend’s).

You can find a ready-made Shchav Borscht, in the Kosher section at your favorite grocery store, but its taste does not measure up to the fresh, homemade version. Once you make it at home, you most likely will never want to buy it pre-made.

Pan Apple Fritters (Ratsushki)- Recipe

I created this recipe based on my childhood memory of Apple Pancakes prepared by my Godmother which she called “Ratsushki”.

These pan-fried Apple Fritters (pancakes) are very easy to make, as they are made with all-purpose flour mixed with finely diced apples (or any fresh fruit), which makes them a little bit denser than the ones made out of a pancake mix, but they absorb less syrup at serving time.

You don’t have to be a fan of any team, or even love watching football, but this should not stop you from having lots of fun attending or hosting a Super Bowl Party.

Everyone is always looking forward to the excitement of the game, the half-time entertainment, the greatest commercials, and of course, lots of delicious food, and plenty of drinks.

Fruit Filled Crepes

One of my favorite recipes from my mom, is a recipe for crepes. She usually filled them with creamed, and sweetened, farmer’s cheese. I like my crepes filled with fresh fruits, or fruit preserves ( I use Smucker’s Sugar Free Fruit Preserves), served with fruit syrup (also by Smucker’s), and whipped cream. This dish may be served as a light main course, or as a dessert. Makes about 8 crepes.
