KCC: The Green Edition

kccgreen1.jpg

The title of the month’s edition of kcc is not a reference to the environment nor to sustainable development but was suggested to me by the fact that most of the recipes included here are meatless. In addition, with Tu Bishvat only two weeks away, it seemed fitting to present numerous recipes and posts which might give you ideas to celebrate this holiday. This is my first kcc so I hope you will be tolerant of my probable mistakes and omissions.

Last but not Least

Kcc wouldn’t be complete with some traditional Jewish recipes so Leora shares her recipe for matzo balls while I have added my favorite recipe for challah.

Batya is looking for hosts for next editions of kcc. To host a future edition, please contact her directly (shilohmuse at yahoo dot com).

A new carnival in the making: Batya’s also starting a dieting carnival. Posts about dieting (or hosting dieters) on Shabbat, chaggim, smachot etc are relevant and would be most welcome.

  1. Thanks Leora. I tried to have the post ready before Shabbat and I have just added three more links and the thumbnails before putting the whole post up.
    I know I’ll have a busy day tomorrow so I wanted it to be online before going to bed.
