Aryeh Cooks: Summer 2011 Part 1

The purpose of this post is to leave you salivating.  I am not going to give instructions on how to make any of these things here.  However, if there is something that you all want to know how to make I may do a regular Aryeh Cooks post for it.

I am on summer break and as a result I now have time to cook and bake.  Needless to say I have been doing so.  My parents get to enjoy what I make and the rest of my immediate family gets to drool when I send them pictures.  Now it is your turn to drool.  These are what I have made so far (baguettes excluded, because you already know about those).

Foccacia a pizza like thick bread.
 Ciabatta an Italian white bread.
 Tortellini a small Italian stuffed pasta (vidalia onion, ricotta and spinach) .
 Sesame seed crusted, soy sauce based marinated salmon with a rissoto like treatment of brown rice and Israeli couscous, all topped with a sauce based on the marinade.
 Blintz, stuffed with a potato, onion filling and also with the same vidalia, ricotta and spinach filling I used for the tortellini (I made these for Shavuot).  And of course I did make my own crêpes.
 Palak Paneer with onion and cumin seed naan.  I also made the paneer for the dish.
 Dessert.  Lets start with the Cinnamon Buns.
 Chocolate Cinnamon Babka, with a streusel topping.
Finishing up with the biggest chocolate layer cake I have ever made, six layers of cake and six layers of pastry cream (so 12 layers).

If you are drooling all over your keyboard then my job here is done.
