Classic French Toast doesn’t take much to prepare. And we would never knock it as a great starter recipe for young kids wanting to thrill Moms with breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day.
In fact, it never crossed our minds to stray from the basic challah soaked, cinnamon laced, eggy breakfast fave that we all love. Paired with fresh summer strawberries and local maple syrup, we were always happy (we thought) to use up thick slices of delicious challah that were on the path to becoming stale by Monday.
Until we found a completely out of the box recipe for Savory French Toast with Seared Tomatoes and Za’atar Butter in Modern Jewish Cooking; Recipes and Customs for Today’s Kitchen by Leah Koenig. Continue reading

I’ve been feeling all warm and fuzzy as we wind our way towards Passover this year.
It was only a year ago that I met three like-minded bloggers and we had the crazy idea of pooling our very different viewpoints and co-authoring a Passover cookbook together. We bonded over countless hours of recipe brainstorming, strategizing, and late night laughter, ditzy from too many hours of Google Chat.
In just four intensely focused months, we created the e-book, 4 Bloggers Dish: Passover, Modern Twists on Traditional Flavors.
The beauty of it is, that we are now true friends, despite the fact that we have never all been in the same room. If any of us were to need something, food related or not, I believe we would be right there for each other. Talk about the beauty of technology! Continue reading
