.........................Golden Rings of Heaven

A Bialy is like a bagel but it is not boiled and has no hole. We are working on perfecting our bialy for our bagel business.

We hope to open our shop in a couple of months. Our business plan is done. Now we are working on putting together the start-up capital. One of our short term goals is to make and sell Symmetry Sauces at our shop and online. I will keep everyone up to date on our progress. Wish us luck!

Traditional Matzo Brei

Every Passover it was a tradition in my home, growing up, to have matzo brei for breakfast. Here are the simple instruction for making this tasty meal.

1. Take whole pieces of Matzo. The number of pieces you use depends on how many people you will be serving. I use about 1 1/2 pieces per person.

2. Break matzo into small pieces into bowl.
I use my fist, great for getting out some aggression!

3. Run the bowl of crushed matzo under cold water just enjoy to moisten. Press matzo down into water, to make soggy. Put hand over matzo and tilt bowl over sink to drain excess water.
4. Add one egg per serving, kosher salt, and fresh ground pepper,

Mix ingredients together, if it is too wet crumble in some more matzo.
Heat vegetable oil in skillet. When hot, add matzo mixture and keep stirring until all of the matzo and egg are cooked

Enjoy your traditional Passover breakfast!

Cinnamon Scones

A quick delicious homemade treat!  This recipe was missing the baking powder amount so I added 1 tsp and it seem to work!  I also added raisins in half of the dough.  This recipe brought to you by the wife of the chef, I like to bake:)  This recipe was found on Heavenly Housewife
Serves 12

4 tablespoons of sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups all purpose (plain) flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons/ 65g cold butter
80g pitted chopped dates
2 eggs
1/3 cup/ 90ml milk

Preaheat oven to 425F/220C.
Combine 2 tablespoons of sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix well and put aside. This will top the finished scones.
In food processor, combine butter with flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, baking powder and salt. Empty this mixture into a large bowl.
In a separate small bowl. Whisk eggs and milk together. Reserve about 1 tablespoon of this mixture for glazing the scones.
Stir the rest of this mixture into the dry ingredients and knead on a well floured surface. Roll out dough and cut. I like my scones to be circular, so I am using a biscuit cutter, but I know that in America people are partial to triangular shapes, so whatever suits you. This dough should make 12 scones, but this may vary a bit.
Baste scones with reserved glaze. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.Posted by Picasa

The process

To make marinade: 1/2 yellow onion, 2 cloves garlic, 6oz plain unsweetened yogurt, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper, fresh rosemary(leaves off of one bunch), 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil. Put all in blender and blend until smooth.
Coat steak with marinade refridgerate for 1 hour

Heat grill on high. Grill 6 -7 minutes each side until desired doneness. We like it rare to mid rare.
Take off grill and let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

Toss with red onion, peperoncini, olives and mixed greens. Mix with balsamic vinegarette, sprinkle with feta cheese and Enjoy!
