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...

Cheese Babka Recipe

23rd of May, 2012

Cheese Babka Recipe

Let me tell you flat out: You won’t get this cheese babka in any commercial bakery. In this cheese babka, the ricotta filling is wonderful, but you might prefer to use it in combination with farmer cheese, just as long as you use 2 cups total. This will make you 2...

Salmon with Pomegranate Sauce Recipe

20th of September, 2011

Salmon with Pomegranate Sauce Recipe

Sweet-and-sour combinations are a great Sephardi favorite, and work beautifully with salmon. The onions caramelize and contribute a sweet counterpoint to the vinegar. Another quick and delicious dish, just the way I like it—one pan, one step. Ingredients: 1 whole side salmon, no skin, no bones, about 3½ pounds, trimmed,...
