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...

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...

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. And who wouldn't love a beach vacation at this time of year, even if only in your ima...

Carrot Cake: A Winter Classic Worth Revisiting

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. Carrot cake has been a dairy-free, seasonal favorite for kosher keepers since the 1970's when it popped up on menus and was promoted as a healthy dessert. Sure, this reci...

Make these Watermelon Pops to Beat the Heat

Make these Watermelon Pops to Beat the Heat

I listened with delight as a friend asked her husband which flavors he preferred from the selection of Bees Knees Ice Pops at my CT farmers' market. "You good with Strawberry Lemonade?" she asked. "Yup". "How 'bout Watermelon Strawberry?" "Sure". "Spicy Blueberry Lemonade? Cucumber Mint Lime?" "Yes. Yes. Ye...

Perfect Passover Chocolate Walnut Torte

Perfect Passover Chocolate Walnut Torte

You know that joke about the mother-in-law who shares her son's favorite recipe with the daughter-in-law but leaves out just a few key instructions so that the recipe fails? Voila! The mother-in-law continues to be THE BEST maker of her son's favorite cake. This is NOT that story. Because when I asked Litz...

Cherry Cardamom Hamantaschen Sweeten Purim

Cherry Cardamom Hamantaschen Sweeten Purim

Hamtaschen, the triangular cookie treats we eat on the holiday of Purim, are no longer just the classic versions we knew as kids. Sure, it's still easy to find these traditional treats with raspberry, apricot, prune and poppy seed fillings. And we haven't stopped loving them. But I'm more curious about why...
