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...

Lion’s Mane Mushroom “Crab” Cakes

Lion’s Mane Mushroom “Crab” Cakes

Is it off-putting to see the word CRAB in this title? I debated whether to use it but I simply have to. I've been hankering to make these vegetarian and kosher faux crab cakes with Lion's Mane mushrooms since I first saw them at Westport Farmers' Market in CT. My curiosity was peaked when I read that when ...

These Trumpet Mushrooms Beg for Linguini

These Trumpet Mushrooms Beg for Linguini

I love to experiment with all varieties of mushrooms, especially in the winter when green markets can be short on enticing ingredients to spark new creations in my kosher kitchen. Since Seacoast Mushrooms became a weekly vendor at the Westport Farmers' Market, I've joined the throngs of 'shroom enthusiasts ...

Chicken Tagine Sure to Warm Winter Nights

Chicken Tagine Sure to Warm Winter Nights

After tasting Einat Admony's Spicy Chicken Tagine over couscous at Kish Kash in NYC, I had to ask for the recipe to share with you. If you're looking for crispy and flavorful chicken that would be easy to make for a crowd on New Year's Eve or over winter break, throw this one in your oven....

Thanksgiving Starter: Roasted Beet Puree

Thanksgiving Starter: Roasted Beet Puree

Thanksgiving starters and sides are where my head is as we approach the holiday feast next week. My family has opted out of turkey (shocking, I know) and we'll be grilling steak for an intimate crew around our table. We'll be starting with a seasonal, vegan and gluten-free beet puree called Charkhlis Mkhal...

Cacio e Pepe Pasta with Roasted Mushrooms

Cacio e Pepe Pasta with Roasted Mushrooms

We ate at least one bowl of Cacio e Pepe Pasta every day while in Rome a few weeks ago. That seems like a lot, I know. True confession: sometimes, I even ate it twice a day. It's a Roman classic that's on every menu and one of the few, if not only, vegetarian pasta dishes found at many restaurants. This addi...

Roasted Fairytale Eggplant & Tomato Rotini

Roasted Fairytale Eggplant & Tomato Rotini

As my summer vegetable garden was winding down I waited patiently for the last warm days to ripen my end of season tomatoes. When torrential rain and  fierce winds descended upon Connecticut a couple of weeks ago (actually a documented tornado that a friend and I watched with great excitement from my screene...
