Minty Rhubarb and Strawberry Compote
Fruit or Veggie? When considering rhubarb most of us think of it a fruit. After all, we generally enjoy rhubarb in sweet dishes like pies, tarts, and cobblers. Low and behold, rhubarb is indeed a vegetable – right there with celery, fennel, and asparagus.

I’m not interested in fooling our dinner guests into thinking I’ve slaved for days to cook for them. But I am interested in easy techniques that yield delicious results and even a little drama on the plate.
I should have learned this easy technique for cooking fish eons ago. The truth is that I didn’t learn it until I took a cooking class in my hometown in CT a few weeks back The theme was Deceptively Easy Recipes for Entertaining.
By now you know that I love it when like-minded eaters tip me off to vegetarian spots that have plenty of options for anyone kosher like me or vegetarian. So when N. suggested that I check out The Little Beet I was totally game. Its menu is seasonal, ingredients are farm fresh and there are plenty of heathy non-meat options to keep all sorts happy here.
And to my amazement the whole menu is gluten-free. Located right in the heart of busy midtown Manhattan, I was thrilled to find a fast but not fast-food option for breakfast, lunch or early dinner. Continue reading

In collaborating on my recent eBook, 4 Bloggers Dish: Passover, Modern Twists on Traditional Flavors, I thought a lot about how my tastes have shifted over the years and how in some ways, they haven’t at all.
During Passover, a lot of home-cooks turn back to traditional foods that may be outside of the scope of what they normally eat. This naturally brought me to contemplating gefilte fish. And while I LOVE my gefilte fish, I’m totally DIS-interested in making it. The stink of simmering fish broth in my home? No thanks. Continue reading
