A few years ago, I bought a meat grinder. I was excited to grind my own meat and make burgers and meatballs all the time. Turns out, I didn’t use it much. I don’t really eat that much meat, though I did make these amazing brisket burgers. Then I realized that I can use it for things other than just ground meat. Tuna! Since I’d be grilling these anyway, who cares if I meatify them? So off to the store to buy some amazing tuna. Continue reading
When Jessica got a copy of Levana Kirchenbaum’s book, The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen, she immediately sent me this recipe; she knew I’d been looking for ways to use up the meyer lemons I’d preserved this winter. I’ve been a lazy cook this summer, though, relying on old favorites and things that won’t heat up my apartment, so I didn’t make it as quickly as she thought I would.
We’ve never made sole for you before. Not that you can’t do this with another fish, but the recipe called for sole, and the supermarket has some frozen wild caught kosher sole, so I decided it was fate, I had to make a sole recipe to share with everyone. This is an easy meal, especially if you have fish in the freezer. I loved the sweet and salty taste of the crumb mixture! Sometimes, I just like to have a light dinner, and this fits the bill. Serve it with your favorite vegetable side dish, and that’s dinner!
I’ve been on a veggie burger kick lately. They’re just so easy to heat up for lunch. Served on a homemade bun, or on top of a big green salad, they make the perfect midday meal. And while I love store bought ones, they’re expensive and full of preservatives. So I have a repertoire of different veggie burgers in my freezer and pull out whichever one I’m in the mood for. It’s a good system, I suggest trying it.
We love cauliflower! And eat it many different ways. Of course, it’s always delicious just roasted with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. But this cheesy and oniony dish is simple, toasty, and not much harder than just roasting. It’s a great side dish that’s become a staple in our house. Continue reading
I told you I’d have something a little bit more fancy from the Bais Yaakov Cookbook! This recipe popped out at me the first time I leafed through the Bais Yaakov Cookbook. I love brisket, and this recipe was so different than anything I’ve made before, I just had to try it.
And the winner is…
Happy birthday, baby foodie! Today is Richie’s first birthday. On July second just one year ago (it was Saturday), I was in labor. At 6:49 pm, Riche arrived and screamed his first of many cries. He ate his first meal, and made us all extremely tired and happy. So, in honor of Richie’s birthday, we are doing a giveaway. Instead of Richie getting all the gifts, one of our readers will have the opportunity to receive a wonderful cookbook!
I love the taste of roasted garlic. And the smell. So, when years ago I heard of this crazy 40-cloves of garlic chicken, I knew I had to try it. And I did. Very early into my marriage. The problem? My husband hates garlic (how crazy is he?!) and did not like this chicken. Turns out, he’s not a big fan of chicken, either. So I didn’t really get the chance to make this much. Continue reading
I’ve had this recipe cut out since 2007. And have been waiting and waiting to make it ever since. I finally had all the ingredients in my kitchen, and decided that we were going to eat this chicken for dinner. I’m glad I made it! The sauce was really spicy and sweet, and the spice just goes really well with the flavor of cilantro. Continue reading
Frozen tilapia is a good go-to dinner. You know, on those days that you just don’t have time to make something fancy, but still want a healthy dinner? Make this over some rice and serve with a small salad and you have a full meal in very little time. The original recipe called for striped bass, but I only had tilapia on hand, so I made it this way and loved it. Now I do it like this all the time. When I don’t have scallions, I just skip them. My husband is not a fan, anyway, but he loves the soft onions, so although they’re not a part of the original recipe, sometimes I make a swap. Continue reading
