The Shabbat Meal

Blog 15 Comments

“One of the saddest features of modern life in the western world is the fragmentation of the family unit.  The quality of family ‘togetherness’ with mutual love, loyalty and respect, which was such a delightful quality of life some years ago, has almost disappeared.  Unfortunately many Christian families have also become victims of these modern phenomena.

When my wife and I lived in Israel, we noticed that this was not the case with most Jewish families.  They have retained family links, despite the onslaught of modern stress factors, which have torn other families apart.  Why is this?  We reached the conclusion that the weekly Sabbath (Shabbat) Meal is one obvious factor, which has helped preserve family unity.

Veggie Burgers

By reader’s request, here is our Veggie Burger recipe!

These are  a favorite at our house.  The kids like them **almost** as much as they like beef burgers.  They are very satisfying when you are craving a burger but don’t have ground beef on hand!  Plus, being made out of beans, they are very inexpensive! Read More

Three Cheese Macaroni with Truffle Oil

Dinner | Recipes No Comments

Back in November, Kristina and I had the great honor of catering a special dinner for the 40th anniversary of my Father’s ministry!  It was great fun.  We did an upscale soul food theme–pulled pork, chicken with white beans, greens with pancetta, creamy potato salad, cornbread, and macaroni-n-cheese with truffle oil.  The mac was a huge hit–even for those who are somewhat traditionalist when it comes to soul food.

Dinner’s In The Freezer

Blog | Preparedness No Comments

I’ve always thought it was a great idea to make dinners for the freezer.  But, really, I have only done that for two reasons: 1) So that I have a few meals for my post-partum lying-in.  Or 2) When I will be out of town for a few days or weeks and I don’t want Gana and the kids to live off fast food and cold cereal.

One of my “issues” with putting meals in the freezer has been those disposable aluminum pans: Read More

Enchilada Soup

I adapted this recipe from a restaurant recipe a number of years ago.  This is a hearty soup that is even pleasing to those people who claim soup isn’t dinner.  Not to mention it will feed a big ol’ crowd. Read More

Bacon & Blue Cheese Pasta

This is a super easy and tasty treat of a dinner.  Admittedly, it’s not the “lightest” recipe you’ll ever prepare, but it’s just fine to pull out occasionally. Read More

Back before Christmas we had the wind storm of the century here in La Crescenta, all through the LA Basin really.  It was scarey and there was a lot of damage.  Because of all the downed trees and power lines we were without power for two days.  A lot of people were without power for much longer.  Thankfully we had no immediate damage either others didn’t fair so well.
