With that in mind, we are happy to present you with this collection of recipes and heart-warming stories from famous (and maybe not-so-famous) chefs throughout the Jewish world. It is only fitting that we begin with The Blessing On Challah

Bring the sugar and 1 cup water to boil in a small saucepan. Let boil one minute and then let cool, at least one hour. Pour into a 9 X 13 pan. Add the bottle of wine and whisk. Place in the freezer. For the first hour, stir every 30 minutes and then let harden several hours or overnight until hard.

A Mother’s Love

Submitted by her daughter Desiree Mayer Kate, Solon, OH

My mother had a very difficult life.   As a survivor of five years in a concentration camp, she lost a husband and child, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. At one point she was chosen for the gas chamber where her mother, Paula Gans, switched places with her, choosing death in order to preserve the life of her daughter.

After surviving years as a young woman in a concentration camp, witnessing the lives of her family and friends cut short, and seeing the annihilation of any semblance of home, my mother could have lived a life of misery and pain.  Instead she picked herself up by the bootstraps and started a new life.

In spite of many hardships, she was a very incredible mother.  She committed her life to making mine better.   She spent every available hour with me, and as a result, we were very close.  As a single mom, (not common in 1960) she provided me with a good life, strong values and a solid education.

As a result of what she had suffered as a young woman my mom's motto was "cherish the sweet things that life affords to you."  I reaped the benefits of this motto growing up.  My mother made it a priority to concoct various delicious treats to remind us of all the sweetness of life.  The following are a sample of the sweet treats we shared throughout our lives together.
