This Chicken Broccoli Cashew Stir-Fry recipe is loosely based on a recipe of Yisrael Aharoni, a famous Israeli chef who has written cookbooks and hosts cooking shows that teach Israelis how to easily prepare gourmet food. Marinate the chicken in oil, honey and peanut butter, and then stir-fry it for 5 minutes. Blanch the broccoli. And then simply mix together the stir-fried chicken, blanched broccoli and roasted cashews. Serve this delicious meat stir-fry over white rice for a complete meal.

One of the challenges I face in my life today is how to satiate the appetite of my always-hungry, 13-year-old son. I recently discovered that meatballs hit the spot.

9. Sloppy Joe
It's Sloppy Joe's fault. Upon returning home from school one day, my 15-year-old son was greeted by Sloppy Joe. His stomach began to gurgle and his mouth began to water, and then my son, a vegetarian of two years, became a carnivore. I thank this winning recipe for converting my son and making my life as the family chef easier.

What to do with the left-over roast chicken from Shabbat? Cut it up, add it to a salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumber and humus sticks. Toss the salad with either balsamic honey or creamy garlic salad dressing. And you've created a great Sunday lunch.
