Shurba, Tomato and Rice Soup with Kibbe

Brrr, it’s cold in New York these days! I know, I know, it’s winter… but I’ve spent all of my winters in NYC, and it is not a normal one. Plus, I’ve been stuck inside with a now 11-month old (today! happy 11 months, Steve-o!) a lot lately, since sometimes we just can’t bundle enough for a pleasant stroll. So we’ve been hanging out at home, playing on the floor, and cooking and eating a lot of soup. Steven loves it, and it’s just what I need after a long day stuck in our apartment together when David finally comes home and I get some grown-up time. This is Syrian comfort food at its finest.shurba: tomato rice soup with bulgur beef kibbe meatballs {a recipe from the kosher foodies}

I’ve been a fan of smitten kitchen since I’ve been reading food blogs however many years ago, but I’ve been slacking on my blog-reading since Google shut down Google Reader (wah!).

Here’s another pizza recipe for you, because you can never have too much pizza. I love a simple tomato mozzarella, but it’s also fun to mix things up. This way, I can put pizza on the menu every week and it won’t get boring, since there are so many varieties; there are so many things you can put on pizza…IMG_4517

Chicken Salad

I just bought my first rotisserie chicken! Ever since I saw a sign at my local Fairway Market that they now sell kosher rotisserie chickens, I’ve wanted to buy one, but didn’t know what for. Well, today I didn’t know what to feed the baby for dinner, I didn’t make a menu for the week and I needed to pack lunches for the husband to bring to work…Fairway to the rescue!chicken salad recipe {the kosher foodies} Continue reading

Chocolate and Potato Chip Cookies

Here’s another potato chip recipe for you; I told you I’d make you something sweet! Sweet and salty is definitely a thing. Think salted caramel and chocolate-covered pretzels. Obviously Kettle brands already knows that, otherwise they wouldn’t have made sweet & salty flavored chips, but I took those chips a step further and mixed them into chocolate chip cookies!pareve sweet & salty chocolate and potato chip cookies {the kosher foodies}

Crispy Tomato Chicken with Potato Chips

When the folks over at Kettle Brand asked if they could send us some potato chips to experiment with, I was so excited! I love potato chips, especially the extra thick, crunchy kettle-cooked ones. Jalapeño is my favorite flavor, but David likes salt and vinegar, so we switch off what we buy. But we don’t buy them often, because I don’t want to use the whole bag; I never think of cooking with them!

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Kale and Chick Peas

It’s fall! And fall means winter squash! Wait… huh!? I guess it’s fall squash. Well, it’s not zucchini and yellow squash! It’s so much better.

Acorn squash is great, because it’s like a bowl! It’s nice and round, unlike its cousins delicata and butternut. So it’s often stuffed. Here, I stuffed the squash with kale and chick peas, along with a little bit of homemade tomato sauce. Continue reading
