Strawberries & Cream Noodle Kugel Signals Springtime

Tropical Pineapple Coconut Hamantaschen

Tropical Pineapple Coconut Hamantaschen

Tropical ingredients always seem to appear in home baked desserts at end of winter. It makes perfect sense. If flavors stimulate our imaginations, there's nothing that says "beach vacation" better than pina colada cocktails.

More than Just a Warming Winter Vegetable Minestrone

More than Just a Warming Winter Vegetable Minestrone

Just nine miles up the road from my home in CT there is a community of women living in a rambling group home on a tidy street of multi-family residences.

Carrot Cake: A Winter Classic Worth Revisiting

I had forgotten how much I love carrot cake until I tasted the one baked by Chef Genee Habansky, owner of Herbaceous Catering Co. in CT.

May I suggest that you should already be thinking about making a zero waste soup stock with those meaty turkey bones and pounds of carrot peels, onion skins and celery tops you'll put aside as you prepare your Thanksgiving feast?

Shopping the Shuk in Israel Reveals More than Fresh Fruit

Shopping the Shuk in Israel Reveals More than Fresh Fruit

It never fails. When I visit a family owned farm, an unpretentious winery, a farmers' market or a neighborhood cafe that celebrates local ingredients I ALWAYS taste something that wows me. When I take any of these paths when I travel, I always feel more connected to that place. Most importantly, these c...
