Strawberries & Rhubarb are Best Friends

Strawberries & Rhubarb are Best Friends

Anyone else relish food centric summer travels? I love to plan around great meals in vegetarian friendly restaurants, bike rides and picnics, and meeting organic growers at local farmers' markets. Throw in a cooking class using seasonal and local ingredients, like the one where we made these Strawberry Fin...

Easy Creamy Cheesecake Bites

Easy Creamy Cheesecake Bites

I think everything is better in mini, especially enticing holiday desserts that are better eaten in controlled portions. Shavuot desserts, laden and rich with creamy cheese, may be hard to resist, though. I really understood how tantalizing mini cheesecakes are when I taught an animated group of tweens ho...

Cherry Rice Soufflé & A Culinary History

When I whipped up Gabrielle Rossmer Gropman's favorite and "quintessential German-Jewish meatless meal" I became teary as the sweet fragrance of simmering whole milk and stewed fruit wafted through my kitchen. This simple baked rice souffle studded with cherries brought this treasure of a cookbook alive for...

Lemon Hamantaschen with Swiss Meringue Swirls

Lemon Hamantaschen with Swiss Meringue Swirls

The two things all hamantaschen have in common are their triangular shape and some sort of filling nestled inside cookie walls. Some like 'em sweet and jammy with a crisp exterior. Others love flavored doughs (yes to all chocolate or anything flecked with herbs) as a starting point for imaginative Purim treat...

Shape & Flavor these Twice Baked Cookies as You Like

Shape & Flavor these Twice Baked Cookies as You Like

Fall foliage, dropping temperatures and a shift in what's piled high at farmers' markets all point towards autumn and for those who celebrate, the Jewish harvest festival of Sukkot. The theme of welcoming guests into one's home, or succah, is emphasized during these days of celebration. There's a prolifera...

No-Bake Dessert Solution for August: Peach & Basil Granita

No-Bake Dessert Solution for August: Peach & Basil Granita

We've got a perfect solution to that "What should I serve for dessert" question when it's so hot that you probably could fry an egg on your back porch. We love August but really, why add heat to the kitchen unless you've over-purchased at your farmers' market? Instead, imagine this icy, dairy free, vegan g...

Creamy Blackberry Matcha Pops Cool the Day

Creamy Blackberry Matcha Pops Cool the Day

Remember those bright orange creamsicles we bought from the Good Humor ice cream delivery truck? There was something so great about that fruity/creamy combination on a steamy summer afternoon.

Nothing got us racing faster than hearing that jingle and imagining our choices as we scanned the photos o...

Very Berry Coconut Goji Love Pops

Very Berry Coconut Goji Love Pops

Fruity ice pops at a sweltering hot July 4th picnic are as perfectly paired as chilled watermelon and a sharp knife, dontcha think?

But we often find fruity ice pops too cloyingly sweet, even when made with real fruit. That's why we were thrilled to hear that the creatives at Leaf & Ardor Tea Co. we...
