Apple Cake

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.

Salmon and Israeli Couscous with Herbs and Tomatoes

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

Asian Style Short Ribs

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

Blueberry Pie

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.

Rolled Brisket With Spinach + Winner!!

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…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Ever since I bought a new cupcake carrier, I have been wanting to bake cupcakes every chance  I get. I mean, why not, now that I have a handy way to transport them. Invited out for Shabbat dinner? Instead of making cookies or cakes, I bring cupcakes.  These are a hit just because who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookie dough?  Continue reading

Rib Roast with Onions in Red Wine Sauce

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.

Passover Lemon Meringue Pie

What? A normal dessert just for Passover? Yup, that’s right. There’s nothing chametz about lemon meringue pie, except the crust, and that’s easily changeable! It’s also inherently pareve, so you can bring it to your seder and impress everyone. It’s definitely a refreshing citrus-y bite to such a heavy seder meal. Trust me, I made this last year for the first seder and everyone was shocked! there were two other cakes on that table, and they didn’t get touched. People only ate this one, and at the end of the night, only two slices remained. So yeah, it’s delicious.

Turkey Potstickers

We really have to thank our good friend and culinary school graduate Adam Mimran for this recipe. He’s the one who’s tested it many times and took the time to make them for a crowd during the Superbowl. Funny thing is, this has been on mine and Steph’s to do lists for quite some time. Oh well. Sometimes you have to rely on friends to cook things for you. If you plan on making them for a crowd, double the recipe. Continue reading
