Time to Think Stuffing! 

stuffing genius.com

Famous pairs: Adam and Eve, Ben and Jerry, Bert and Ernie, Batman & Robin, wine and cheese, corned beef and rye…and of course, turkey and stuffing.  At Thanksgiving, most Americans consider the stuffing just as important as the turkey!  Some call it dressing; some put it inside the turkey and some serve it on the side. Stuffing can be fruity, savory, made of rice, farfel, matzoh meal, cornbread, bread crumbs, quinoa and more. It can be parve, meat, or even gluten-free. Many stuffing recipes are family heirlooms, passed down from a grandmother’s or bubbie’s kitchen, or can be simply made from a convenient stuffing mix. We are presenting some of our favorites, including some packaged choices. Enjoy!  ... And by the way, do send us a recipe for your favorite stuffing. Thankgiving Day is November 28!  Gobble, Gobble!

10 Wines to Toast the New Year
 Looking back through the 20th century, sweet wines such as  Manischewitz or Mogen David concord wines were found on just about every Jewish Yom Tov table. However,  due to the entrepreneurial vision of the Herzog family, hundreds of kosher wines are now available and enjoyed year round. The kosher wine palette has become selective and sophisticated . Kosher wines are produced and  enjoyed from vineyards and wineries around the world including Italy, New Zealand, Australia, Spain, France, Argentina, Chile, and of course, Israel and California.
As Yom Tov  approaches, we will be presenting a series of articles, and highlighting some wine favorites. The reviews and descriptions include those by experts, wine vintners and KosherEye tasters. 
Gabe Geller, Director of PR and Wine Education Manager for Royal Wine, recently shared some of his wine insights and observations. He reports that " the new releases, produced by innovative newcomers and venerated estates alike, are really something to get excited about. "Whether we’re talking about Herzog wines from California, Terra di Seta wines from Tuscany, Elvi wines from Spain, or Netofa from Israel, it’s clear that today’s kosher wines can compete with any other top-rated label. Quality is everything. Drinking kosher wine is no longer a compromise in quality.”

kosher van road trip
Ready, set,  pack the car! So you're renting a beach or mountain place and going on a road trip to get there. For the kosher family, this can be a big challenge. In addition to leisure gear to enjoy at the destination, your kosher kitchen has to come along. If you're like many families we know, dining out opportunities are rare, and even if you are in the heart of Miami Beach or the Catskills, home cooking is preferred at least some of the time. Eating in - saves money, saves time, and is usually healthier and more leisurely with a family.e compiled a list of what to bring, and what not to bring along. The KosherEye team usually heads to a beach in the summer...and has had many years of experience in stocking a vacation condo. We're primarily sharing cooking related tips, but have also provided a few general tips for other vacation packing.

Before we rent a unit, the first question we ask: Is the oven self-cleaning? As soon as we arrive we check the oven, and press that cleaning button!
Do remember that the Dollar store is your friend. Almost all of the items listed in the must bring section are available for $1 each. We are ardent fans of Dollar Tree stores. Remember, we are not looking for top quality kitchen tools or longevity, we are looking for 2 weeks of functionality. However, if you plan to be a regular vacation renter, you may want to upgrade and keep your vacation supplies from year to year. Many frequent travelers purchase 2-3 large tubs and keep dairy, parve and meat kitchenware in storage in the labeled tubs. 
We take along insulated bags and re-usable ice packs to store our transportable foods and to use at our destination as well.
If possible, pre-plan your menu to ensure that you have the right kitchen supplies. If you plan to serve both meat and dairy, take along     the correct implements and serving tools.

We welcome YOUR travel suggestions to add to our list. This resource will be ongoing and permanently accessible and printable.
