You're not making this easy.  Okay.  Book for you to look up: 

  A Drizzle of Honey : The Lives and Recipes of Spain's Secret Jews by
  David M. Gitlitz and Dr. Linda Kay Davidson.  Which also addresses
  Aldyth's "new challenge" thread as well, come to think of it.

In the meantime:  what do you usually cook at home for the Sabbath?
