Kosher Vegetarian Moussaka

I’m an eggplant convert. I never ever used to eat it, but I’ve been experimenting with it lately, and really it’s not so bad! The key is the salt drain—never skip it! I started off simply with eggplant parmesan, and eggplant with meat and tomato sauce, but now I’m going way out of my comfort zone with this vegetarian moussaka.vegetarian greek moussaka—made with lentils! {the kosher foodies} Continue reading

Garlic Rosemary Lamb Riblets in the Oven

When I made these lamb riblets for dinner, I proclaimed that they were the best thing I’ve ever made, and David said that they’re better than lamb chops. So obviously I had to share them with you guys. Then I thought to myself, today is a good day to share this recipe with you, because it’s our birthday, and what’s a better birthday present to ourselves than my favorite new recipe? Usually we make ourselves decadent desserts like s’mores ice cream sandwiches or maple crunch layer cakes for our birthday, but there’s nothing wrong with a special savory treat!garlic rosemary lamb riblets {the kosher foodies}

Slow Cooked Veal Roast with Fresh Figs

slow cooker veal roast with fresh figs

I’ve only ever made veal roast in rubut, and while that’s amazing and delicious, I wanted to try something new.

Fall came a little late, too, and the idea of not turning my oven on was appealing last week while the air conditioning was shut off, but we still had summer temperatures inside my apartment. That’s why when I found this recipe, I turned it into a CrockPot recipe.
