Pineapple Apricot Rugelach Pastry Bites

Pineapple Apricot Rugelach

What is Rugelach?

Do Not worry how to pronounce - just call them “Pastry Bites!” A rich pastry made with cream cheese, and found in Jewish pastry shops. If you haven’t tried one, you need to.

Growing up Mom would always use the scrapes from pie dough to make “pie crust cookies.” Rugelach reminds me of pie dough cookies - with filling. It is a rich pastry using a lot of cream cheese and butter. The fillings may be sweet or savory - although most of the time they are sweet.

Enchilada Rice Bowl

Enchilada Rice Bowl

I love enchiladas, but sometimes I don't have time to prepare them during the week. When I am craving these Mexican flavors (cumin, chili powder, cilantro, lime), I sometimes mix all of the enchilada "insides" into a bowl for a quick fix.

Enchiladas, by definition, are tortillas rolled around a filling of meat and/or cheese, served hot with a tomato-based sauce. What I love about this bowl concept is that it shows how you can learn some basic cooking skills and flavor-pairings to create a variety of dishes. If you don't have these exact ingredients on hand, no problem. Check out how to make this dish on Studio 5

Some quick substitution ideas: can use canned enchilada sauce, shredded deli chicken, minute rice, or pre-chopped ingredients.

All the same tasty ingredients found in traditional enchiladas but the convenience of a bowl. Easy to make this recipe ahead of time. Leftovers or make-ahead version may be microwaved to warm.
