Shabbat Menu - Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cake

bundt cake

In parsha Pinchas we deal with succession.  Passing things down.  From parents to children.  From Moses to Joshua.  These are the things we’ve handed down.  As I get older and look in the mirror or hear myself talking to my children, I am following in the well-trodden footsteps of my mother and her mother and on and on.  It is our immortality.  When we try to recreate a recipe from a parent or grandparent and capture the taste, sight and smell of something near and dear and precious to us, we are able to keep something very much alive and allow our own children, friends and family to join us in that experience.  This week we highlight recipes from our community that are inspired by their family.  I hope you enjoy and hope you are also creating and sharing memories with the people you love most.
