I made these last Pesach (a 1/4 teaspoon of vinegar is fine instead of the cream of tartar) and they were yummy!

Meaty dessert ideas needed

Thanks for all of your ideas. The meat baklava particularly appealed to me. Sadly my hostess has foolishly invited vegitarians to the meal this year , so she is making a meat-free dessert. I will be bringing the bread; one loaf with pastrami braided into it, and one without.

Meaty dessert ideas needed

My friend makes a yearly meat-fest. A meal where every single dish contains meat or poultry of some sort. I have foolishly volenteered to make the dessert, but have since realised how difficult the challenge is.
My friend is lactose intolerant and there will be a few non pig-eaters a the meal, so a bacon-caramel icecream is out. Also, last year I made mince pies (yummy dried fruit/goo filled Christmas-time goodies in Britain, which are normally meat-free) with actual minced meat in them. They were delicious but most of my American friends wouldn't et them.
Can anyone help me?

What to Eat After Wisdom Tooth Surgery

The popsicles are a great idea because they're cold but after any tooth extraction it's not a good idea to suck anything as it can cause clotting problems.

The Supersized Cousin of Couscous

What you call Israeli couscous (and we here in Israel call ptitim) and couscous are totally different things! Couscous is made from semolina, steamed so that it absorbs water and puffs up as it cooks. Israeli couscous is small toasted pasta that was introduced when rice was unavailable. Both are however, super yummy.

Would these work if you chopped up the pecans and mixed them in to the meringue?

Challah

If you're Jewish and want to make really traditional challah, take challah between steps 3 and 4. See http://www.secretofchallah.com/50708/... for more details.
