  • Paula’s potato rolls

    • infotrop on January 06, 2020

      I used a bread machine & added at least 1 cup more flour than the recipe called for. Oddly, one pan of rolls doubled in bulk horizontally, while the rolls on the other pan rose nicely to the right height. Both pans produced delicious rolls. My husband asked, is there butter in these rolls? Um, yes, 4 sticks of butter (!)

Publishers Text

Miryam Levy of Haifa, Israel, is a talented artist, fashion designer, natural linguist, writer, Cessna pilot, actress, fortune teller, and a magnificent cook who can feed five or fifty with the same ease. Miryam is also my adored mother and a tough act to follow. For years Ima collected recipes from family members and friends of different ethnicities. Her handwritten collection survived three children, four wars in the Middle East, five grandchildren, and a succession of birds, dogs, cats, and pet lizards. Ima cooked for armadas, often with leftovers for the next day. In these recipes I venture to preserve the flavors and aromas of my insanely happy childhood among my food-loving and cheerful tribe. Rather than calorie counts, you’ll find the sweetness of maternal love wrapped in dough and fried in sticks of butter, with lots of powdered sugar on top. This book is my gift to my beloved Ima on her 85th birthday and a tribute to her rich and beautiful life.
