I don’t even mind that she is always photographed in a skimpy t-shirt, even though she lives in mind-numbing-ly frigid Minnesota. No, none of this is my gripe. The problem is, she...

Shavouot: Some of my Favorites Dairy Creations. All Recipes Included

Posted on 7th of May, 2013 by Lévana

cheese cake

My – usually virtuous enough – students and readers have asked me specifically to go all out for my Shavouot Dishes, starring mostly dairy treats, all those foods we love to hate. “With Cheese!!!”, one of them even emailed me in bold print: You asked for the splurge! The good news...

My Pre-Pessach Shabbos Bash. Complete Menu

Posted on 8th of March, 2013 by Lévana

My whole grain loaves look plebeian and rustic, in the traditional Sephardi/Arabic tradition, but they taste GOOD! I recently received some fabulous meat samples from Naftali Hanau at Grow and Behold Good mother that I am, I decided to enjoy my precious gift in the appreciative company of my foodie...

Irish Soda Bread Recipe

Posted on 14th of December, 2011 by Lévana

IMG_2834

Irish Soda Bread is a quick bread. It has all the deliciousness of yeasted breads, without yeast, kneading or rising time. Perfect for brunch. I make mine with spelt flour, my favorite flour: low gluten, high fiber, high protein, great flavor! Dairy please. No substitutions here; it won’t be nearly...

Royally Annoying Review on Royal Challah Silicone Mold

Posted on 17th of November, 2011 by Lévana

royal-challah1

This challah silicone mold, which was created to obediently take on a beautiful braid’s shape for dutiful but less-than-dexterous bakers, elicited many comments, a few of them of a gastronomic nature, most of them of a reconstructive-surgery nature (vaguely reminding one as it does of some enhancement plan…), and just...

Upcoming Cooking Demo in NYC: Monday November 7th: Secrets of Gluten-Free Baking

Posted on 2nd of November, 2011 by Lévana

Although the number of gluten-free commercial offerings is expanding daily, I am sorry to say they are quite often loaded with trashy worthless ingredients, and not terribly tasty, which makes gluten-free eating an unhealthy and uninspiring experience, defeating the whole purpose. You would be amazed how resourceful you can get...

Secrets of Good Whole Grain Baking with Recipes

Posted on 2nd of November, 2011 by Lévana

IMG_0449

Since I use spelt flour for all my baked goods (except the gluten-free ones), both sweet and savory, let me start with a word about spelt: While I see no reason to put the whole nation on a gluten-free diet (you will see throughout my latest cookbook that I make...

Upcoming Cooking Demo in NYC: Monday October 31st: Secrets of Whole Grain Bread Baking. Served with Salad and Soup

Posted on 24th of October, 2011 by Lévana

Too many of us simply don’t believe bread or challah can be as exciting if baked with whole grain flours, and often settle for mediocre bad-for-you white bread offerings. I have the modest hope of changing that in my circles of students and readers. As you all know, and as...

Gluten-Free Bread and Challah Rolls Recipe

Posted on 7th of September, 2011 by Lévana

Gluten-free-Bread-Rolls

Not just gluten-free, but delicious and nutritious as well. This might well be the solution to your gluten-free bread cravings. Here’s all I ask if you want to pull this off perfectly: Don’t shape the dough into loaves. Rather, shape into rolls. There will be much less room to end...

Zucchini Walnut Chocolate Chip Bread Recipe

Posted on 18th of May, 2011 by Lévana

Zucchini-Chocolate-Walnut-muffins-and-bread

I love the idea of quickbreads, whipped up at the drop of a hat, ready for guests and us on short notice, no kneading and no rising time. The added bonus is that they are only moderately sweet, placing them in the category of real foods rather than desserts, even...
