The signature triangle-shaped fun Purim cookie, shrouded in legend and folklore (ear-shaped? purse-shaped? Read on!) with three points pinched around a jam filling. It matters not at all if you don’t celebrate Purim—you will love ’em! Attention Gluten-Free Diners: This is for you too! The day you get really adventurous,...

Borekas are the perfect occasional treat: Ethereally light and crunchy, and so easy to make. There are no fillings you can’t use, savory or sweet. Here I make my filling without even sauteing anything: I just add a finely grated raw potato to my spinach filling to be sure any...

My granddaughter Musia and I had ourselves a little cottage cheese party this past shabbos. Just in case cottage cheese eaten alone sounds too plain, here’s how to jazz it up! My mother in law used to make it for us all the time, and called it – mysteriously –...

Couscous is wonderful and fun, the rock star of Moroccan cuisine. Couscous is native to Morocco, and the word refers to both the grain and the traditional dish made with the grain. It is semolina, or durum (the heart of the wheat kernel), ground to the consistency of coarse cornmeal...

Farfel is nothing more than matzah cut up small and calibrated for quick cooking. I use the Osem whole wheat version, with wonderful results. You will love the robustness of the whole-grain flavor. No need to wait for Passover to make this treat! Oh I know it doesn’t exactly look...

Another brisket of mine with wacky ingredients that comes out to die for! Just ask all the guests that were at my Seder Demo last night: They were falling like flies! So sorry about indulging in some un-ladylike swagger! This star was recently born when I was tinkering with coffee,...

Kids, please: Don’t let’s get into a turf war with the distinguished and wonderful French Macarons, or with the somewhat less distinguished and ubiquitous canned Passover Macaroons that linger for months after Passover, or anything in between: Here come Meringues! So move over sweeties, and let’s all play in the...

Too many diners complain that they love schnitzel but are disappointed that they are so easily dried out. My daughter-in-law Ruthie makes the best schnitzels but always keeps insisting she does nothing in particular, so I decided to spy on her once when she made the dish, from beginning to...

I grew up in a very modest household, but I remember fabulous food at every meal at my home, especially on Pessach. So much so that, fast forward more years than I care to admit, I actually wait for that time of year to showcase my culinary stars. So, what’s...

A friendly warning: You will never be able to speak disparagingly about the lowly prune again after you have tasted this magnificent dish, so find something – or someone -else to pick on. If you like dried apricots, substitute them for the prunes, or use half prunes half apricots. You...
