Tropical Fruit Cake Recipe

Posted on 29th of July, 2010 by Lévana

Tropical-Fruit-Cake-Levana-Cooks

Sometimes I take my playing with food a drop further than even I myself dare, tinkering endlessly, as with this fruit cake, picking my family and friends as willing victims as I subject them to constantly evolving batches and asking them to please forget they ever tasted something if it...

Posted on 21st of July, 2010 by Lévana

levana-cooks-tilapia-niçoise-en-papillotte

A packaged meal. Only, not that kind of a package! Enclosing the fish and its toppings in foil, parchment or wax paper seals in all its flavors. Papillotte is a cute French word that means curl, flutter, blink. In the food world it refers to the frill that tented paper...

Posted on 16th of July, 2010 by Lévana

renewing-vows-levana-cooks

Recently I said to Sara, who helps me and tutors me in all things technical, I should have more of a profile on Facebook. My list of friends was expanding, G-d bless, and so it would be a nice idea. So we edited the profile to include my status (married)...

I have been living in the United States almost two generations. I have lived in an apartment structure my whole life, in big cities only: Casablanca, Paris New York, etc…. you get the picture. I am a complete city mouse, don’t drive, and cannot conceive of any viable setting where...

Posted on 8th of July, 2010 by Lévana

This Mock Crab Pasta Salad includes many of my favorite summer flavors! The only cooking that goes on in this dish is boiling water to soak the pasta. Although it is delicious with rice noodles, if you are a diehard wheat pasta lover, simply substitute your favorite pasta for the rice noodles,...

Panzanella Recipe

Posted on 7th of July, 2010 by Lévana

Panzanella Recipe

The cute name Panzanella comes from the Italian word “pan”, which means bread. The ideal leftover dish, as it is made from 2-to-3-day-old bread. Gluten-free bread will work perfectly here. The bread cubes soak up all the flavors, so it will get better as it sits a few hours. The...
