Crisp Autumn Salad Loaded with Symbolism

Crisp Autumn Salad Loaded with Symbolism
I've been giving a lot of thought to how to incorporate as many seasonal vegetables and fruits as possible into my celebratory menus as I begin to cook for Rosh HaShanah, the Jewish new year. While brisket and chicken soup will always have a place at my table, I turn to my local farmers' market for inspira...

Zucchini Crisps & Lessons Learned Cooking with Tweens

Zucchini Crisps & Lessons Learned Cooking with Tweens

A few weeks ago I hosted three tweens in my kitchen for a series of cooking classes on various themes. The experience was so rich that it left me ruminating about the lessons I learned from three eleven year olds this summer.

While we chopped, simmered, improvised, questioned and consulted with each...

Even Kids Can Make this Fried Rice For Dad

Even Kids Can Make this Fried Rice For Dad

I've got cooking with kids on my brain after this weekend's first Southern CT Jewish Food Festival* in my hometown.

Now that we're on the verge of Father's Day, it's a perfect time to think about involving your kids in the meal prep and festivities as you celebrate your favorite Dads.

Savory Mushroom Cheese Kugel for Shavuot

Savory Mushroom Cheese Kugel for Shavuot

Summer is starting off with a bash as Memorial Day weekend BBQ's and picnics are followed almost immediately by the two day joyful Jewish festival of Shavuot when all things dairy reign supreme.

Good things calories don't count 'cause it's a holiday.

My family is crazy about mushrooms and all...

Countdown to Strawberry Season with Balsamic Glazed Berry Salad

Countdown to Strawberry Season with Balsamic Glazed Berry Salad

It's hard to believe that strawberry season is only 4-6 weeks away but watch carefully or it may pass you by. The season is so short that we suggest putting your local pick-your-own berry farm on speed dial so you don't miss it.

Vegan Portobello Bacon Is a Crispy Meat-Free Alternative

Vegan Portobello Bacon Is a Crispy Meat-Free Alternative

Vegan portobello bacon does NOT taste like bacon.

I've been there(yes, it was a long time ago)and I can attest to the distinctions. Still, if you're looking for a way to beef up a Passover friendly quinoa salad, loaded with early spring veggies, you may want to consider this sweet and salty stand-in...

We love to celebrate holidays with symbolic foods. That's why we're seeing green as we welcome spring (have you heard the birds?!) and Passover simultaneously with this vegan and gluten-free pesto over spaghetti squash.
But with earliest veggies like morels, mint and pea greens still 6-8 weeks away h...

Tsion Cafe; Where Ethiopia Meets Israel in Harlem

Tsion Cafe; Where Ethiopia Meets Israel in Harlem

When I read about Tsion Cafe, Beejhy Barhany’s cozy spot in Harlem, I wondered if the menu would link her journey from Ethiopia to NYC via Israel. Like so many immigrants’ stories, this chef’s personal history informs her cooking in plenty of delectable ways. While many dishes are distinctly Ethiopi...

Molly Yeh’s Falafel Recipe Brings Brightness to January

Molly Yeh’s Falafel Recipe Brings Brightness to January

Taim means flavor but more specifically, YUMMMM. We use it when we take a bite and can only summon one word to express how utterly delicious that bite is. TAIM!

So it makes perfect sense that the best falafel in NYC is served at a place with a name that encapsulates how perfectly balanced, fried and...
