Kosher Beef Bourguignon

I’ve made mushroom bourguignon before, but I wanted to try the real stuff—well, as real as I could get to it, while still keeping kosher. So I bought myself some facon and got cooking!

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

Beet Pesto Pasta

Behold, the prettiest pasta dish to grace my kitchen: beet pesto!beet pesto pasta with beet greens and ricotta {the kosher foodies}

Seriously, this meal was such a beautiful, lovely pink color, I can’t get over it! But I should also mention that it’s delicious; don’t just make it for its looks! That would probably hurt the recipe’s feelings. It really is a great thing to make to impress company, just don’t wear white like I did. I mean, we all know beets stain, so I should’ve known to wear an apron and/or non-white t-shirt to prepare this dinner.  Continue reading

Brussels Sprout Pizza with Egg and Truffle

A fellow Kosher Connection blogger wrote about potatoes as an “if you could only eat one food…” If I had to choose only one food to eat, three meals a day, for the rest of my life, it would be pizza. There’s nothing like a classic pie with tomatoes, mozzarella and a sprinkling of fresh basil. Continue reading

Swiss Chard for Rosh HaShanah

syrian swiss chard

I know we just shared a swiss chard recipe, but being that Rosh HaShanah is right around the corner, I also have to share the traditional seder swiss chard recipe.

It’s pretty easy to make, though washing and chopping all the swiss chard takes some time. Unless you let the supermarket do that for you… Continue reading

Whole Wheat Cabbage and Mushroom Galette

I’m not really sure why I bought savoy cabbage, but I did, so I had to make some dinner with it. I originally wanted to roast it in wedges and serve it with the leftover sausage from this salad, but I ended up using that for something else. Apparently people make galettes with savoy cabbage, so that’s what I decided to do!

Slow Cooker Chili Tacos and Kosher Connection’s First Birthday Linkup, Plus a Giveaway

Happy first birthday to the Kosher Connection! For this special linkup, we were each assigned a blog to cook from; our blog was Peike’s Cookbook. It was hard for us to pick which recipe to choose, but we finally narrowed it down to a few, and the winner was a kosher adaptation of Alton Brown’s Chili for the slow cooker.slow cooker chili tacos from the kosher foodies Continue reading

Stewed Lentils and Tomatoes

These lentils are easy to make, can be made in advance, and are super healthy! Score! You can definitely just chop all the veggies and then throw everything together while preparing a different dish. It’s a great Sunday activity. For some reason, this Ina recipe was never on her show (according to the Food Network site), but it is in one of her cookbooks, which I own, and you can also find it online on her website. I made it vegetarian so we can use it with any type of meal. Continue reading

Lamb Stuffed Eggplants

The Jerusalem Cookbook has so many recipes that I need to make! But this is the first one that jumped out at me, and I’m so glad I made it. It’s a simple recipe that can be made in advance, but since it’s lamb and has pine nuts in it (which I usually leave out, as you know), it can be served as a fancy dish or a weeknight make ahead dinner (my favorite).

Summer Salad with Peaches, Apricots and Spicy Sausage

Grilled peaches are one of my favorite things about summer. I don’t have a grill in my apartment, unless you count my grill pan, which is impossible to clean, so I made this salad by roasting the fruits and sausage, but the whole time I was thinking about turning this recipe into a grilled salad at my parents’ house this summer! Grilled Summer Salad from the Kosher Foodies Continue reading
