Edamame is kind of boring these days. I stopped ordering it at restaurants, because I can buy a bag of the frozen stuff and make it the same at home, but even that got boring, and I needed something new to do it besides boiling it and eating with salt.
When I heard ramps were available at the farmer’s market, I made plans to rush over there, baby and all, and buy some right away! But then I realized that I was going away for Pesach and not cooking for more than a week, so that wouldn’t have been a good idea. Then, I found out Fresh Direct has ramps! So I made sure to place an order to be delivered the second I got home from Florida. I would need to restock my kitchen, anyway, but I did it mostly for the ramps. Continue reading
We just love Jack’s Gourmet’s Facon! It gives us kosher people the ability to add that smoky bacon flavor to our meals. Now, I can’t actually compare it to the real thing, but I know it’s pretty good, works well in BLTs, and adds a great flavor to stews and other meat dishes, like this duck breast and Beef Bourguignone.

Chag Kasher VeSameach!
Everyone goes crazy over Kosher for Passover Coke this time of year, but even though there’s no high fructose corn syrup in it, there are still plenty of other ingredients I try to avoid.
That’s why I was excited when Whole Foods Market sent me this Harrison’s Sweet Shoppe cane sugar cola. David drank the orange soda before I could experiment with it, but I was more interested in the cola anyway. Continue reading
Matzah meal is definitely a staple in our household. We love matzah ball soup, and you need matzah meal to make those fluffy matzah balls all year ’round! We always try to make the healthiest meals possible for our families, so we were very happy to discover that Osem sells whole wheat matzah meal. They sent us a sample, and we just love it!
Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I’ve always loved La Tortilla Factory’s handmade-style corn tortillas for tacos (like black bean tacos, chili tacos, chicken tinga tacos, steak tacos, tuna tacos), so when they sent me a different product to review, I was excited to try something else from the line. Since they sent me low carb, high fiber tortillas in the larger size, I wanted to venture away from my taco comfort zone and try something new. And so butternut squash enchiladas were born.

Ever since buying a spiralizer a few weeks ago, I’ve made sure to use it a few times a week. I’m usually boring and just make the same cucumber salad with it, but recently I’ve decided to leave my comfort zone and try out different veggies and combos with it. Lately, my favorite veggie to spiralize has to be zucchini. And it’s definitely better than spaghetti squash. Continue reading
Sometimes, you are just in the mood for Chinese food, but you want it to be semi- healthy. That’s where this recipe came in. Beef lomein without all the MSG and junk. I know exactly what went into it, and used whole wheat pasta, of course!
My husband thought it was delicious, but actually thought I should have used tofu in place of the steak. That’s pretty unlike him, but I think the tofu would have been better, especially if it was marinated in the delicious sauce. Continue reading
I guess New Yorkers don’t cook with horseradish very often. When I remembered that this linkup was coming up, I searched high and low for some fresh horseradish root. At my sixth (6th!!!) supermarket stop, I finally found some (It was at Citerella, in case you’re wondering. Whole Foods, Fairway, A Matter of Health, Agata and Valentina, and Gristedes did not have any).
