Look what happened to coleslaw! Well, why not? A slaw being nothing more than shredded cabbage as the first building block—have fun adding all the good stuff, with minimal effort on your part, thanks to the food processor. I can’t tell you enough how good and good-for-you green apples are...

I have my mother to thank for providing the inspiration for this beautiful tart. The base is not a classic pie crust as we know it, more like a cookie dough, making this tart much less perishable than the classic apple pie. You will create in no time a dessert...

I love any pie that doesn’t tie me down to making it just before serving, as when pies have a bottom crust. This pie is best served warm, alone, or a la mode, with a scoop of sorbet or vanilla ice cream. Use only granny smith apples here, as they...

Waldorf in a dish signals the presence of apples, celery, and nuts. Besides these constant trademarks, there’s so much you can do with a Waldorf salad, so let’s start with my favorite, then take it places! Passover: Adjust the dressing ingredients using what you have on hand. Ingredients: 2 gala...

Cranberry Muffins You say cup cakes, I say muffins! Gosh, I would hate to lose my popularity with the junior cup-cake crowd, but many years of catering kids’ parties and watching their delighted faces as their lick their fingers put my fears at rest. As if that was not enough,...

While you indulge in frying – and eating – latkas, it’s a perfect time to tell you there is a huge difference between store-bought apple sauce and homemade. This subject will always remind me of the time, a few weeks after my son Maimon and Ruthie got married, and I...

Ah Latkas! The food we love to hate! To make matters worse, courtesy of the alarmist low-carb food industry, the humble potato has gone from being a faithful staple at every table to making rare and apologetic appearances, as in Chanukkah, where we fry and eat it with a vengeance....

I play endlessly with latkas, both sweet and savory, and from around the world where they might not call them latkas, but fritters, beignets, bunuelos etc…. One big happy fritter family! There’s no vegetable or fruit you can’t make latkas out of, and when you go over my primer on...
