This recipe is for a Rosh Hashana apple cake, but I made it a little too late for the holiday. Still, it’s fall, so we’re going to be eating a lot of apples. I have been using Food52 a lot for finding recipes, and I liked how this one was already parevified for me! I mean, it would be delicious with melted butter in place of the vegetable oil, don’t get me wrong, but I served it after a meat Shabbat dinner.
We love corn. And we really love corn salad.
So, when my friend Daniella told me about a great corn salad recipe I had to make, I knew I would make it for Shabbat. The problem? She told me one recipe, and I made a completely different one! Oops, I guess that’s my lack-of-sleep-because-of-Richie brain. I’m glad I made that mistake, though, because everyone loved the corn salad recipe I made, and there were actually no leftovers.

I have never had a Rosh Hashanah with honey cake. Yes, you read that right. I never ate or served a honey cake during the new year. So why am I sharing this recipe with you? Well, for one, I wanted to try it out. There’s a first time for everything, right? And the second was I was racking my brain trying to think of a honey recipe to share for our Rosh Hashanah linkup. And then I thought to myself, “duh, can’t go wrong with a classic holiday recipe!”
I don’t think we share enough fish recipes around here. Sure, we recently gave you a sweet and crunchy fish, and a while back posted some salmon, but this recipe is an entire meal in one. And it’s a very different way of cooking salmon (at least I’ve never cooked salmon this way before, have you). I don’t even like tomatoes, and I loved the couscous in this. Continue reading
This is Richie eating his piece of focaccia for breakfast one morning. Notice the happy face he is making because he loves it so much. Also notice those pajamas. everyone likes sleepy lions.
But really, I served this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to a number of people, and they all loved it. Though I made them taste it before I told them about the weird flavor combination. Continue reading
I told you I like baking pies! While I usually stick with whatever fruit has been on the counter a little too long, or my go-to recipe of peach pie with a few blueberries thrown in, there’s always something special about blueberry pie. Yes, it takes a little longer to make, since you have to cook the blueberries separately, but since there’s no cutting or chopping involved, it probably evens out.
Sometimes, the best lunch is just a big giant salad. But not just a boring lettuce and veggies salad, a delicious one with tons of protein, carbs, veggies, and lots of flavor. So when my mom was having company at the pool, I decided to do just that. A giant salad for lunch. It was easy to make, though it took a while to do all the steps, and was definitely worth it. For dinner I would sear tuna steaks, but for lunch, 2 cans of tuna is perfect.
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
You know, I don’t really cook a lot of fish. Unless I’m having company, in which case salmon is my go-to main dish. Obviously, fish is a good dairy main dish for dinner parties, and it also makes a great centerpiece, because look how pretty that big piece of fish looks on top of that bed of root vegetables!
I’m not sure if it’s just because I have a baby who will be turning one soon or because it’s just a fad, but there’s something about nut milks that I just can’t stop hearing and reading about them wherever I go. Now, nut milk is exactly what it sounds like. A drink made out of nuts. In this case, almonds. It’s not milk in the traditional comes from a mammal who just had a baby way, but it’s a nice dairy-free alternative for baking, drinking, cooking, and definitely marinating meats that you can’t use cow’s milk for (think fried chicken).
