When I found out that this month’s link up was stuffing, I was super excited. Not that I’ve ever made traditional Thanksgiving stuffing/dressing before, but because we’re Syrian, and we stuff everything. I racked my brain to think of something traditionally Syrian we can make for you so that you can have a Syrian Thanksgiving. Then I changed my mind and thought I’d tackle the unknown territory of Thanksgiving stuffing. I cut recipes from all my magazines and bookmarked recipes on blogs from years past. But nothing excited me enough, and I just couldn’t figure out what to share with you this month. Continue reading
I know pomegranates are a Rosh Hashanah food, but lately they have been beautiful, giant, and on sale! And I like them no matter what time of the year it is. So, when I saw this recipe for roasted chicken with this sweet and crispy skin, I knew I had to try it, especially because I got some Silan, a date syrup that the recipe called for. Continue reading
I’m very into quick meals these days. Not things like boring mac and cheese, although we do eat that in my house, but new and different meals. I like recipe testing and trying out interesting flavors. So when I came across this recipe on Pinterest, I just knew I had to make it. This is a simple recipe with a ton of flavor! It’s sweet and tangy, and healthy when served over brown rice with some veggies. I chose broccoli.
Happy new year, everyone! When Miriam emailed us to invite us to a Rosh Hashanah blogger’s party, I knew we had to attend. This year, we tested a delicious chicken recipe with pomegranate. Yum. Continue reading
I know I own a barbecue and use it all the time. But sometimes, you just want to stay in your kitchen. And I know some of you don’t have barbecues, so I had to use a recipe that you guys can make, too. Oh, and you should make these. Zeke said it’s the best meat he’s ever eaten, and he loves meat, especially ribs. 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…
Ever been to the Second Avenue Deli? They bring you amazing pickles and health salad while you’re waiting for your matzah ball soup
Okay, so health salad isn’t really so healthy…I guess it’s called health salad because it’s cole slaw without mayo. Instead, it has vinegar, sugar, and a little oil. Anyway, it’s amazing. And we always ask for more. Continue reading
Ah, one-pot meals! I love them. And I’ve been looking for some easy do-ahead meals, as well. So when I saw Anne Burrell make this chicken and cauliflower dish, I decided it was the perfect thing to make for dinner…It was delicious! The chicken had a strong flavor from all the coriander, the texture of the veggies was great due to the nuts I added, and it was so easy to get dinner on the table. Continue reading
This was my first time making a rib roast! So, if you’re a newbie, I’m here to tell you that this isn’t a hard recipe, and you should definitely try it! Okay, so I know these things look intimidating, and you might just glance right by them at the butcher. OR, you might love them, but not want to risk wasting all that money on something that might come out kind of tough. Well, it’s not as hard as you think, and I even made mine without my handy thermometer! So try it.
I decided I needed to make my own beef stock! Not because I had any particular recipe to make with it, but just because I always make stocks and broths, so why not try this one? Plus, if I made this I could make beef barley soup, or even some pho like Steph made! And what better recipe to use than Alton’s? What would you make with beef stock? Continue reading
