Bread

Banana Nut Confetti Bread

Recipe contributed in honor of Arlene G. Becker

 

by Debbi Josephson

 

My mother, Arlene Becker was a fabulous cook and entertainer. The reason that she was a good cook is because she used the finest ingredients, the most important ingredient by far was love. Love for the people for whom she prepared the food and love of the creative act of cooking. When I began life on my own she told me that all a person needed to know in order to cook is; how to read. Follow the written directions and you can succeed. Mom also said that there are three recipes that many people think are very difficult and will shy away from preparing, and if I could master those as a beginner cook I  could impress my guests. She taught me her secrets of how to make matzo balls, chopped liver and cheesecake. This recipe Banana Nut Bread was one of her signature dishes.

My Aunt Mary was always close to us.  She was my mother's sister and always there even after my own mother died.  I spent many of my growing up days at her house.  As a newlywed I made this cake frequently. This was one of her favorite recipes.

Meat/Cheese Blintz

Recipe contributed in honor of Ida Sacks, by Shayna Sacks


All I can say is that the woman was the best cook I have ever known. Shabbat dinners at her house every week. Baking and cooking constantly for us, and for others. I can say I honestly don't remember her not being in a kitchen somewhere. She had a full kitchen with an additional full kitchen in the basement. Not to mention the countless hours she spent with the Beth Israel Sisterhood. Although I didn't realize it at the time, I was truly her princess, and I now realize that she was the queen of my world. I just wish I would have realized that before she left this earth. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her, knowing she is with me every step of the way. I can only somehow hope that these recipes serve as her legacy to all Jewish kitchens everywhere. She was truly a gift to all who knew her!  I love you Bubbie, Your Shayna "madel"

Recipe contributed in honor of Gertrude Simon by Kathy Simon


My mother-n-law Gertrude Simon was an excellent cook, baker, and hostess. 

As I was looking for one of her many delicious recipes its was easy for me to pick this one because she said this is "my favorite!" P.S. The recipe might be hard to follow, but if you are a cook, I think you can understand her recipe. By the way very yummy!

by Phyllis Glazer and Susan Rothholz

 

Hariett is one of the best bakers in Omaha (and probably in any city in which she would have lived)! When we tasted this bread at a Book Club meeting and again, at our Temple's Adult Education class, we threw out our old Banana Bread recipes. This is truly a Blue Ribbon Winner!

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Recipe contributed in honor of Idell Wasserman Rodin by Lois "Ducky" Milder

The aroma of this coffee cake reminds me of the man Jewish Federation meethings and Hadassah Business and Professional Women's gatherings at the home of my parents, David and Idell Rodin, in Sioux City, Iowa.  I feel so grateful to my mother and Dad, who were warm and welcoming hosts, for their participation in both Jewish and community life.  Sioux City was once a vibrant Jewish community.  The aroma of baking this cake permeates still in our home today, bringing back treasured memories.
