Moroccan Artichoke and Lima Bean Tajine Recipe

Posted on 3rd of March, 2014 by Lévana

cb11-29 - Copy

Tajine is the name of the earthenware pot that gave its name to all dishes cooked in it. In our native Moroccan cooking, there is no such thing as a “side dish.” Equal time for vegetable dishes and meat or fish dishes —this is where our respect for veggies comes from. Vegetables...

Moroccan Salmon in Mustard Caper Lemon Sauce Recipe. Chicken Variation

Posted on 1st of March, 2014 by Lévana

Salmon Lemon Mustard Sauce

Photo courtesy www.newthoughtgeneration.com One of my favorite ways of making salmon, so simple and so delicious. We Sephardis are very fond of the Mustard-Caper-Lemon Trinity. Here is just about all you need to know when you make salmon, beside of course that it has to be perfectly fresh, like all fish:...

Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Posted on 27th of February, 2014 by Lévana

Beef Stroganoff

I love to use London broil for this dish, as it is so lean and tender, and lends itself perfectly to the brief cooking time. Keeping the meat well chilled makes the slicing much easier. The finished dish tastes every bit as rich and creamy as the dairy original (yes, I...

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...

Unstuffed cabbage1

I would like to say that it is this week’s inclement weather which is inspiring me to make this wonderful comfort food, except I love comfort foods anytime anywhere, in all seasons. Cabbage, tomatoes, rice, meat (or even no meat for a fantastic vegetarian variation)? I’m there! I trust you...

My Latest Weekday Dinner Menu with Recipes

Posted on 13th of December, 2013 by Lévana

Onion Soup

I was told the dinner we hosted at our home in honor of some guests in town from Israel this past Monday was totally ridiculous (love the new slang word!). Because it was a weekday, I looked to distance myself from “Shabbos food”, plus we needed to accommodate some vegetarian...
