Ridiculously simple and incredibly delicious: I whip it up in minutes. Who would believe it has no eggs and no cream and tastes so rich? No trace of the tofu’s controversial heritage, it’s all eclipsed by the other wonderful flavors! Tofu contributes only its bulk and great texture. My daughter...

Blackened Chicken Breasts over Mixed Greens Recipe

Posted on 9th of April, 2010 by Lévana

Photo Courtesy wholefoodsmarket.com The mixture of soy milk and citrus juice results in that curdled texture and tangy flavor we look for in yogurt and buttermilk, and best of all, it is pareve, which means it’s a surefire hit in dairy-free meals (it goes without saying that if you would...

Levana-Rhubarb2-300x230

This sauce is thick and dense, a self-contained dessert, more like a new-age jell-o (whatever you do, don’t call it that!) Dare I share the name we give this delightful sauce in my house? OK, but please don’t tell on me: I don’t want anyone saying Bubbie has a naughty...

If there is anyone who doesn’t go gaga over these little gems with the runny gooey centers, I have never met them! Alas, no baking in advance and no reheating, or they won’t be, well, molten chocolate cake: runny and gooey! The great news is, (a) they are nothing to...

Chocolate beet cake strawberry sauce

It is unfortunate that in America, beets invariably conjure up pointed remarks about, ummm, never mind!  We grew up eating them every day, and yes for pleasure not duty! I am always looking for ways to sneak them in, as in this cake, where they do their magic even while...

Orange-almond-cake-300x205

This is one of my favorite Passover cakes. As much as I would like to make my life easier by minimizing Passover preparations, I have never had the heart to buy pre-made desserts.  The ingredients in this cake are assertive and deliciously fragrant. You will want to make it all...
