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...

Make your Passover Seders Easier with these Simplified Menus

Make your Passover Seders Easier with these Simplified Menus

No way to stop the calendar, huh? Passover is indeed approaching and nobody wants COVID-19 as an uninvited visitor. Small family gatherings and limited access to ingredients means re-thinking seder preparations. Let's chose to simplify menus and keep the holiday joyful but not exhausting. With these new...

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...

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. There is an American flag fluttering in the stiff wind on a frigid January evening. Residents are veterans in need of support, shelter, services and nourish...

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...

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...
