Roasted Daikon & a Simpler Thanksgiving 2020

Roasted Daikon & a Simpler Thanksgiving 2020

Thanksgiving 2020 will be one for the history books, that's for sure. We'll be keeping ours very small, just four of us, and very simple. With the obvious goals of keeping our crew safe and well -fed, I backed into my menu thinking about roasting purple daikon radishes. I admit that it's a little unexpected. ...

These Spice Blends Help to Repair the World

Raise your hand if you're running out of ideas for what to cook for dinner? WHAT? You, too?! Nobody needs to remind you that we are the eighth month of this Covid-19 pandemic. If you're like me, you've made your favorite recipes one too many times and you're looking for inspiration. Really, desperate fo...

Stuff, Roll & Simmer these Brussels Leaves

Stuff, Roll & Simmer these Brussels Leaves

Have you seen the thick stalks of brussels sprouts at your local farmers' market yet? This cold weather crop begins to appear at the end of October and crescendos in November, landing on Thanksgiving tables across America. While I love brussels sprout buds (yup, that's what they're called) halved or shaved...

Celebrating under Thatched Roofs & Stars

Celebrating under Thatched Roofs & Stars

Sukkot, the Jewish holiday marked by festive meals and eight days and nights of communal gatherings in a Sukkah (temporary dwelling) was certainly modified this year. Despite the many adaptations, I'll remember Sukkot in the time of Covid as an opportunity for creative expression and joyful, intimate gatherin...

7 Kugel Recipes to Enthrall All Tastes

7 Kugel Recipes to Enthrall All Tastes

The old Southern adage, "There's a lid for every pot." has me thinking about kugel. It used to be, that dairy kugel* was more or less the same kosher recipe of wide egg noodles, creamy cottage cheese, thick sour cream, loads of butter and a good dose of sugar. But the days of getting that first familiar bi...

Apple Compote Parfaits Lighten up Dessert

Apple Compote Parfaits Lighten up Dessert

I'm all for Jewish food traditions and Rosh HaShanah is loaded with them. The sweetest of them all is pairing apples with honey as we wish our friends and family a sweet new year. While I wouldn't think of setting my table without this symbolic duo, I love the challenge of re-thinking ways to express this tra...

THAT Holiday Apple Cake Everyone Wants for Rosh HaShanah

THAT Holiday Apple Cake Everyone Wants for Rosh HaShanah

When Hadassah Magazine asked me for a holiday apple cake recipe I couldn't believe that I didn't have one for Rosh HaShanah on Kosher Like Me. Nine years into blogging and I don't have this traditional autumn dessert on the blog? The reason? I’ve been making the same dairy-free, foolproof recipe for so m...

Easy Summer Dinner: Wild Cod & Stacked Veggies in Parchment

Easy Summer Dinner: Wild Cod & Stacked Veggies in Parchment

This post was sponsored by Stew Leonard's. When the days are blazing hot outside, I yearn for easy summer dinners that require as little prep as possible. For lazy cooks (guilty) and those who would rather lounge poolside (guilty) or skip waves at the beach (guilty), try cooking fresh, wild fish in parch...

One Bowl Summer Salad: Quinoa, Peaches & Minty Lime Dressing

One Bowl Summer Salad: Quinoa, Peaches & Minty Lime Dressing

There's nothing that sets my heart aflutter like local peaches piled high at my farmers' market in CT. Now that our market has cautiously re-opened for "day of" shopping (so carefully, masked up, all precautions taken in this crazy time of pandemic) I'm honing in on big salads that will serve as a one bowl ...

Strawberries & Cream Noodle Kugel Signals Springtime

Strawberries & Cream Noodle Kugel Signals Springtime

I grew up eating the same dairy noodle kugel that everyone else's Mom seemed to make. We all thought that our Mom's was the best. Of course. Still, it was SO one note. Where was the fruit? Why were the Moms not thinking about strawberries and sour cream, the ultimate spring combination? Scroll down to find...
