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...

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...

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...

3 Tips to Healthier Chanukah + Broccoli & Cauliflower Latkes

3 Tips to Healthier Chanukah + Broccoli & Cauliflower Latkes

When Westport Magazine asked me for three tips on how to celebrate a healthier Chanukah all I could muster at first was, "forget the latkes". After all, Chanukah (also spelled Hanukkah) foods are all about frying in oil which, no matter how you sizzle it, does not point to eight nights of  healthy eating. Af...

Here’s how to Extend the Season with Fried Green Tomatoes

Here’s how to Extend the Season with Fried Green Tomatoes

There's something glorious about ripe juicy tomatoes during summers in New England. As soon as the spring soil warms, we hurry to grow them in pots on city terraces and in patches in our home gardens. Somehow, though, as soon as the season gets going, we sense that it is fleeting. Once October arrives and ...
