Chopped Liver Recipe

28th of September, 2014

Chopped-liver-recipe-levana-cooks

Photo via www.staceysnacksonline.com We always confess our love for all things liver as a sort of illicit guilty pleasure.  We grew up eating it quite often, enjoyed it in moderate amounts without any remorse and without getting lectured. My Pate de Campagne and my Moroccan Chicken, Liver and Lamb Meatballs are guaranteed...

16th of September, 2014

Cheeses-Levana-Cooks

We usually try to host our nephews and nieces’ Sheva Brachot right after their wedding, before most of the out-of-town guests disband. But this last wedding, for my nephew Meir Abner, took place in Montreal, as well as all subsequent Sheva Brachot, except ours,  which took place last night, and...

Hot and Sweet Mustard Recipe. Dip Variation

16th of September, 2014

Hot-and-Sweet-Mustard-Recipe-Levana-Cooks

I used to make a wonderful but somewhat labor-intensive hot and sweet mustard, using eggs and whisking the mixture on a stovetop, like a hollandaise sauce, but I gave it up, preferring a more streamlined but no less delicious (and egg-free) hot and sweet mustard. This hot and sweet mustard...

Coconut Cookies Recipe. Gluten-Free-Friendly

16th of September, 2014

Coconut-cookies-recipe-levana-cooks

I am a total nut for coconut. Natural corn flake crumbs are easy to find in health food stores, and give the coconut cookies their delightful gritty texture and funky flavor. The lemon zest is a must here, and will complement the coconut cookies beautifully.  This coconut cookies recipe is in my...

Moroccan Mixed Olives and Lemon Salad Recipe

16th of September, 2014

Moroccan-Olive-Salad-Recipe-Levana-Cooks

We Moroccans grew up eating olives at every meal, not only in salads but cooked with our dishes. I love mixing good quality olives for this olive salad. The lemon here is not a garnish, but a real ingredient in its own right, and gets eaten, skin and all. This...

Food, Family and Tradition. Hungarian Kosher Recipes. Lynn Kirsche Shapiro. My Book Review

4th of September, 2014

Food-Family-and-tradition-levana-cooks

Gee thanks  Sammy’s Romanian, dubbed Heartburn City, for serving Treif  Shmaltz all these years, right in the Lower East Side, the original American scene of the religious Jewish settlers, to emancipated immigrants who want authentic Eastern European food (Romanian, Hungarian, Polish: all quite closely related) with no kosher strings attached. I can only contemplate...

Maia: New and Best Greek Yogurt. My Product Review

23rd of July, 2014

Maia-Yogurt-Levana-Cooks

In a memorable scene of the movie As Good As It Gets, bigoted, homophobic, irascible pet-fiend Jack Nicholson is actually seen crying about a neighbor’s dog he had previously stuffed into a trash chute and who was pulled out miraculously, saying something like “Can you imagine this? I am crying! about...
