Strawberry Shortcakes

Who doesn’t love strawberry shortcakes? They’re a perfect brunch food and are super easy to make. All you need is some homemade biscuits (cut however you want. the original recipe said to cut into rectangles, but I like how these look), strawberries, and whipped cream. They’re perfect for summer, but I enjoy them any time of the year. Continue reading

Korean Ground Beef

I’m very into quick meals these days. Not things like boring mac and cheese, although we do eat that in my house, but new and different meals. I like recipe testing and trying out interesting flavors. So when I came across this recipe on Pinterest, I just knew I had to make it. This is a simple recipe with a ton of flavor! It’s sweet and tangy, and healthy when served over brown rice with some veggies. I chose broccoli.

Grilled Tofu with Pineapple and Brown Rice

I love to grill. Even though the weather is getting cold and many people are braising and slow cooking every night. I’m not, I just like cooking outside. But sometimes, you just don’t want meat. Good thing there are other things that you can grill! I mean, of course we all know about grilling corn and other veggies. But really, my favorite thing to grill is pineapple. And after that, pretty much any fruit. So when I found this recipe, I was extremely excited. And then went ahead and make it about ten times this I discovered the recipe last summer.  Continue reading

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

This is no ordinary bread. Forget the fact that it’s filled with raisins, cinnamon, and brown sugar. It’s also made with a rich, buttery “breakfast” dough. That’s right, I used the same dough for this that I used to make cinnamon buns. So you know it must be good.

Thinking of something different to make for the break-fast? Well, you can’t go wrong with this! People don’t want to eat TOO much (well, I don’t, at least) an this will be a perfect post-fast meal along with a big cup of tea.  Continue reading

Asian Corn Salad

We love corn. And we really love corn salad.

So, when my friend Daniella told me about a great corn salad recipe I had to make, I knew I would make it for Shabbat. The problem? She told me one recipe, and I made a completely different one! Oops, I guess that’s my lack-of-sleep-because-of-Richie brain. I’m glad I made that mistake, though, because everyone loved the corn salad recipe I made, and there were actually no leftovers.  Continue reading

Honey Chiffon Spice Cake: September Kosher Linkup

I have never had a Rosh Hashanah with honey cake. Yes, you read that right. I never ate or served a honey cake during the new year. So why am I sharing this recipe with you? Well, for one, I wanted to try it out. There’s a first time for everything, right? And the second was I was racking my brain trying to think of a honey recipe to share for our Rosh Hashanah linkup. And then I thought to myself, “duh, can’t go wrong with a classic holiday recipe!”

Salmon and Israeli Couscous with Herbs and Tomatoes

I don’t think we share enough fish recipes around here. Sure, we recently gave you a sweet and crunchy fish, and a while back posted some salmon, but this recipe is an entire meal in one. And it’s a very different way of cooking salmon (at least I’ve never cooked salmon this way before, have you). I don’t even like tomatoes, and I loved the couscous in this. Continue reading

Raisin, Rosemary, and Cinnamon Focaccia

This is Richie eating his piece of focaccia for breakfast one morning. Notice the happy face he is making because he loves it so much. Also notice those pajamas. everyone likes sleepy lions.

But really, I served this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to a number of people, and they all loved it. Though I made them taste it before I told them about the weird flavor combination.  Continue reading

Corn Souffle

Summer means corn season! And while we love grilling corn and making corn salad, I wanted to do something a little different this time. Of course, I consulted my favorite book and found an amazing sounding corn souffle.

We’ve made souffles before, and they’re fancy without being too hard to make. So, I decided to use Richie’s all-time favorite food and make it a little bit fancier for dinner.

Asian Style Short Ribs

I know I own a barbecue and use it all the time. But sometimes, you just want to stay in your kitchen. And I know some of you don’t have barbecues, so I had to use a recipe that you guys can make, too. Oh, and you should make these. Zeke said it’s the best meat he’s ever eaten, and he loves meat, especially ribs. Continue reading
