We’re kicking off our warm weather Seasonal Snippets column with lots of minty inspiration and a gluten-free, low fat recipe for Mint Salmon Cucumber Rolls.  With mint‘s uplifting and invigorating scent and all-around culinary versatility, it is a seasonal shoe-in!

While in ancient times, mint leaves were scattered on the floors of synagogues and home foyers as a symbol of hospitality, these days we prefer them on our plates and in our glasses to perk up everything from morning tea to savory dinners and cooling desserts. Here’s what you need to know. 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
