Shabbat Menu - 6 Easy Recipes that Impress

“Please don’t patchke,” It’s the first thing you hear from your friend (or mother… or mother-in-law…) after you invite them to a Shabbat meal- Am I right? And what do I always respond? “Oh, of course not!”


What I really need is a go-to list of things that look nice, taste delicious, but still holds me to my commitment of not going too crazy. 

We compiled a bunch of easy, short-ingredient-list recipes here that totally fit into this category, and you can be 100% truthful when you proudly say you didn’t go overboard for your guests! 

Happy Cooking!
