Marinated Feta Cheese

My friend, Holly, is really a gourmet cook. This is a treat from her kitchen. She usually serves this as a first course with grilled vegetables.

12 ounces feta cheese (the softer kinds imported from Israel or France are best for this)
6 large garlic cloves, peeled
10 large sprigs fresh parsley
10 large leaves fresh basil
2 teaspoons fresh oregano
good quality extra virgin olive oil


Cut feta cheese into 1/2-inch cubes. Place cheese into shallow non-reactive dish or plastic container. In food processor, finely chop parsley, basil and oregano. With machine running, drop garlic cloves through feed tube. Continue processing until garlic and herbs are finely chopped, stopping to scrape down sides as necessary. Carefully mix garlic-herb mixture with feta cheese, coating cheese well. Pour enough olive oil into dish to completely cover cheese mixture. Marinate 24 hours for up to one week and serve at room temperature.

    Matzah Pizza

You can let your imagination go wild here.


All you need are matzas, olive oil, tomato sauce and grated mozarella cheese. But you can add whatever toppings you like.


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place matzah on lightly greased baking sheet. Spread a very thin layer of olive oil over matza, then add sauce, cheese and desired toppings. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes, watching carefully to keep from burning.

1-1/2 cups matzah farfel

2/3 cup vegetable oil
