Keeping it Chill (ed) for the Holiday with Rice Noodles

Keeping it Chill (ed) for the Holiday with Rice Noodles

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year,  is coming SUPER early this year. So early, that it would be wise to keep a good part of your menu cool since the weather will likely be steamy hot. I'm focused on chilled sides, even if I my family insists on my  traditional, braised  brisket as the main. 11844...

Baking “Torah Tuiles”

Baking “Torah Tuiles”

Here’s the thing about giving a real pro a challenge. When you toss it to the right gal, she’ll take you up on it and even surpass your expectations. I was wracking this little ol’ brain o’ mine trying to come up with some more edible wonders related to these Autumn holidays. I asked Melissa if she...

Caramelized Onion and Poppy Seed Kugel

Caramelized Onion and Poppy Seed Kugel

Quick! Name three quintessentially Jewish foods.  Don’t think too much about it. I bet that kugel is on your short list. Even the most health conscious cooks will likely whip up a luscious, highly caloric noodle pudding at some point in the next month as Jews everywhere, celebrate four holidays over ...

Impossible to Resist Honey Cake

Impossible to Resist Honey Cake

I tried to avoid this. Really, I did. I wracked my brain, rustled through my ever expanding kosher cookbook collection and finally through up my hands and yielded to Melissa Roberts, my go-to recipe writer, for a traditional Rosh Hashanah recipe with a twist.

Independence Day with Patriotic Pavlova

This post was contributed by Melissa Roberts. What does a July 4th celebration have to do with Kosher Like Me? Well, not a whole lot really. Except....Jews are an integral part of the American fabric. There are probably more of us here in the U.S. than in any other country or continent. So celebrate ...

Sometimes there’s an unexpected confluence of circumstance that makes writing about holiday foods a real thrill. Maybe it's the adventure of discovering a new product that I suddenly feel I must have in my ‘fridge at all times. In my perennial search for traditional foods with a twist, it was a great c...
