Culinary treasures from a community cookbook.

With my family as guinea pigs, we're testing out recipes in community cookbooks throughout the country. These recipes are from a school close to home and they were a big hit. Especially the pineapple kugel!

To order this cookbook, please mail your request to:

COLD SALMON FOR SHABBAT
Janis Friedman

1/2 yellow bell pepper
1 to 2 c. dry white wine
1 tsp. basil
1 Ib. salmon fillet
1/2 red onion
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 green bell pepper

Slice onion in very thin rings. Spread V2 over the bottom of a rectangular Pyrex dish. Lay salmon on top of onion slices. Pour wine over fish. Sprinkle the basil over the fish. Wash and seed the bell peppers. Slice in long thin strips. Lay the remaining onion over the fish, then lay the bell pepper strips in a pattern partially over the fish and partially laying in the pan around the fish. Bake 10 to 15 minutes until just done. Broil 3 to 4 minutes to cook the pepper and top a little extra. Do not brown! Refrigerate and serve cold at lunch.

This is great before the main dish or with a dairy meal. My boys even finish it off the next day.

ORIENTAL COLE SLAW
Frances Miller

Cole Slaw:

1 pkg. green coleslaw

Dressing:

1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 c. salad oil
1/4 c. rice vinegar

Combine salad ingredients and marinate with dressing. Yum yum! Better make 2 batches!

Steve Friedman's favorite "Oriental Cole Slaw" as prepared by Fran Miller from Susan Baum's recipe, that she got from Perri Victor.

SQUASH KUGEL
Birnbaum Family

2 boxes frozen cooked squash, defrost
1/4 to 1/2 c. Coffee Rich
4 eggs
1 stick margarine, melted
1 c. sugar
1 c. flour
Cinnamon

Mix squash and margarine. Add sugar and flour. Beat eggs with Coffee Rich. Add to mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 350° uncovered for 1 hour.

This recipe is from Susan's sister-in-Iaw in New York. I've given this recipe to so many people that it's become a West Coast favorite.

PINEAPPLE KUGEL
Monique Rad
1 pkg. wide noodles (large) 3 eggs
1 stick parve margarine, melted
3/4 c. sugar
1 pkg. vanilla sugar 1 large can crushed pineapple (with juice)
1 small can pineapple rings (decoration)

Mix eggs, margarine, sugar, vanilla, sugar, and crushed pineapple together. Add mix to cooked noodles in a 12x9 inch pan. Decorate with pineapple rings. Cook for 1 hour at 350°. Don't cover it. It came from my Grandma Esther. It tastes good and is easy to make.

CRANBERRY ALMOND APPLE PIE

1 roll Odense pure almond paste
1 unbaked 9 inch pie crust
5 baking apples, peeled, cored and sliced (5 c.)
1 c. sweetened dried cranberries
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. chopped almonds
1 tsp. cinnamon, divided
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. uncooked oats
1/2 c. brown sugar
6 Tbsp. butter

Preheat oven to 375°. Roll almond paste between 2 sheets of wax paper to form an 8 to 9 inch circle. Press rolled almond paste into the bottom of unbaked pie crust. In a bowl combine apples, cranberries, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Pour into pie shell. In a bowl, combine remaining cinnamon, flour, oats, and brown sugar. Cut butter into flour mixture until crumbs are formed.

Bake 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and bake additional 30 to 35 minutes or until outer edge of filling seems set. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Just before serving, decorate around edge with rosettes of whipped cream, if desired. Makes 8 servings. This is for our friend, Steve Garrett, who cannot get enough of this pie.

re:oriental cole slaw

I add a few handfuls of craisins to this salad, and it is spectacular.
