    Thanks so much for all of your recipes & suggestions.

    You posted a link for Bourbon Meatballs, which calls for a pre-made cocktail meatball. If I’m not buying those (I wouldn’t even know who sells them), how would I prepare the meat?

      Hi Rivky, I’m actually going to remove that link because I see it uses worcestershire sauce too (which is made from fish). This was an update of an old roundup from 2014, so I don’t know what I was thinking including that recipe! If you want to make it though, I would make a basic meatball with some ground beef, flavored bread crumbs, an egg, salt and pepper. Good luck!

  2. I’m speechless! What an incredible collection of recipes and menus. Thank you for all your hard work!

    Hi,

    I am loving your carb free milchig recipes. I plan on making a few of them for shavuos, in particular the eggplant, spaghetti squash and zucchini.

    Can they be made in advance and frozen?

  4. Toby says:

    Is the beer brisket easily reheated? Having a lot of company last day of Shavuos, and this would be an easy thing to serve, but does it make enough gravy to stop from drying out with reheating?

    • chanie says:

      I think there should be enough gravy, if I remember correctly (I haven’t made this in a long time), if not, you can just add some boxed stock to the gravy when rewarming.

    I love these menus!
    Thank you so much!
    Wondering about the 3 cheese broccoli buns- when do you freeze before or after baking ? and how do you re-warm?

    Thanks again!
