Zucchini and Fennel Soup Recipe

29th of April, 2010

Fennel cream soup in the traditional tunisian plate

Fennel Soup is pure seduction. Many Americans have yet to get turned on to fennel. Any chance I get to sneak in those veggies that are somewhat neglected in America, and beloved beyond, I am there: So for today, that will be Fennel! Fennel and anise seeds are a constant...

Makrod: Semolina Date Pastry Recipe. Gluten-Free Friendly

I have always rather neglected this wonderful treat, as the traditional preparation requires frying, my nemesis: I don’t think I have more than a handful of fried dishes in my whole repertoire. But I tweaked the recipe to do my bidding as a baked, not fried, treat, and the result...

Children adore banana chocolate chip cake, and of course so will you. Bananas got too ripe? Don’t even think of chucking them, as they make the greatest smoothies, muffins and cakes, their flavor reaching their sweetest and most intense peak! The riper the better: freeze them, and when ready to...

I was a caterer many years,  and catered countless simchas.  When my time came to plan for my children’s wedding and be a plain-clothes customer, Mother of the Bride, I had a “choice” between striking fear in the hearts of those caterers and bullying them around, and writing up for...

Recently I found myself listening, rather incredulously, to the weather report on the news, one Thursday morning, and the forecast was: Temperature in the high eighties.

Blackened Chicken Breasts over Mixed Greens Recipe

9th of April, 2010

Healthy green salad with grilled chicken breast

This blackened chicken is ideally moist, so moist I only use chicken breasts for the whole dish, and end up with fork-tender blackened chicken. I beg you, no garlic powder. If for goodness only knows what reason, you don’t want to use fresh garlic, then don’t use any garlic at...

IMG_7439

Cold Pasta dishes are wonderful for summer and all buffet displays. And the best part is, beside for boiling the pasta, this cold pasta dish doesn’t require any cooking. If you are watching your starch intake, or if you are simply, as I always am, looking for better grains, this...
