We love making varieties of this biscotti, sometimes with different nuts, or even peanuts, sometimes with chocolate chips or different kids of dried fruit. The recipe is so versatile, but this combination is our mom’s favorite; apricot and pistachio is a classic flavor profile of lots of Syrian and Middle Eastern desserts. Continue reading
Lamb chops are not something you can make very often. They’re very expensive for a very little bit of meat (maybe you’re paying for the bone, so save it! Make stock!). That being said, they are a perfect “special occasion” food. And what better occasion to celebrate than Father’s Day (which is this Sunday)? Well, we’re celebrating this year with our delicious recipe for grilled lamb chops and a giveaway from ModernTribe, so come celebrate with us! Continue reading
Family legend says that our great grandma Pauline (Grandma Sally‘s mother) invented Mechshie Potato. Being that we Syrian stuff everything with hashu, like zucchini, grape leaves, onions, etc., it wouldn’t be surprising that more than one person came up with stuffing a potato with it too. Whether or not Grandma Pauline invented this recipe, it’s definitely a special one, because it’s deep fried! Continue reading
Again, I realized that I shared a bunch of nice pizza recipes (see: tacos), but not the one I make practically every other time we make pizza for dinner: white pizza with caramelized onions. Continue reading
Can you believe Purim is right around the corner!? Of course, our fellow bloggers are busy working on creative hamentaschen varieties. It’s hard to compete with all of these delicious recipes, and we usually revert to our favorite original version, but this year we decided to go with a super simple, savory pizzataschen!
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. Continue reading
Congratulations to our giveaway winners! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prizes. Happy Hanukkah and shabbat shalom!
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!
Hanukkah starts next week, but here in the city, it’s hard even for us Jews to avoid the Christmas cheer. This holiday season, we’re embracing Jewish stereotypes by eating Chinese food and watching movies on Christmas; we’re teaming up with Soy Vay for a #ShalomLomein giveaway, so you can host your very own Jewish Christmas Eve party.
We love Soy Vay sauces not only because they’re kosher (OU), but because they’re made without preservatives and other gross ingredients that we avoid in our cooking. You can read more about Soy Vay, and how the company started, here.
Ten winners will receive their very own #ShalomLomein party kit, which includes:
- $50 grocery gift card
- $25 Netflix gift card
- Soy Vay product: Veri Veri Teriyaki, Island Teriyaki and Hoisin Garlic
- Soy Vay recipe cards: Veri Veri Teriyaki Saucy Vegetable Chow Mein, Island Teriyaki Mango Chicken and Hoisin Garlic Beef and Asparagus Stir-fry
- Decorations for the Christmas Eve parties including paper lanterns, chopsticks, and toys/games (Mahjong and Dreidel)
Winner will be announced December 18.
Plus, share your Christmas eve party with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the #shalomlomein hashtag, to be entered to win the grand prize of $100 gift card for cooking class or personal chef.
