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
Behold, the prettiest pasta dish to grace my kitchen: beet pesto!
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
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
I wish I had thought of making this for Rosh Hashana this year. I could have replaced the kale with chard for a non-traditional siman. Oh well, maybe next year. For now, I will just have to share with you a delicious kale salad. It has crunch from almonds, a salty tang from green olives and pomegranate, which can do no wrong in my book. Continue reading
Tiramisu is probably my favorite favorite dessert . It always order it in a restaurant if it’s on the menu. That is, unless I’m at a kosher steakhouse. Pareve tiramisu isn’t even worth it. So, as a Kosher Foodie, why don’t I ever make it myself? We make all sorts of complicated recipes (see: cronuts), and tiramisu is actually quite simple. Continue reading
Fall is here! That means butternut squash and soup weather. Now, I know we always share butternut squash soup recipes with you, but this one is different. This one also has roasted sweet potato and carrot. And coconut milk! Perfect for the rainy and gross weather today.
This is also one of the easiest soup recipes ever. No chopping and stirring, no waiting for the onions and garlic to brown and adding dashes and pinches of things. Just place vegetables in the oven and forget about them until a timer beeps. Then blend it all together. That’s it. It’s delicious and refreshing, and perfect for the cool fall days! Continue reading
Good morning, readers! Things have been a bit hectic in the lives of Kosher Foodies, but not hectic enough in our kitchens! Since we last posted a few weeks ago, Jessica gave birth to a baby girl and I vacationed in California. Continue reading
Happy September! This month, the Kosher Connection is spreading the joy the best way we know how to; with food! I”m excited to see what everyone comes up with this month, since it’s not much of a foodie theme. We are spreading the joy with freezer food for a mom-to-be; Jessica! She’s due on Friday and has been stocking her freezer with healthy goodies so she won’t have to cook for a long time, so I made this green mac & cheese for both of us. I split it in two, put half in my freezer and half in hers. Continue reading
Today, my nephew Eddie turns 1! It’s not every day your first baby turns 1, so when Adele asked me to bake a cake for his birthday party, I told her to pick any recipe and I would make it. Adele loves lemon desserts, and she chose this awesome and fancy torte. I told her I’d only make it if I could make another cake, too. I ended up baking vanilla cupcakes so that Eddie and the other small guests would enjoy a dessert, as well.
His birthday party was a little early, because the holidays got in the way of his birthday plans. Which was great for our blogging schedule, because we were able to post this in time for his big day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EDDIE! Continue reading
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
