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...

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.

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...

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...

Straight from my latest Cookbook, The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen. The combination of the apples, bourbon, and pecans is a classic. Mix by hand in minutes. You will find it so moist, spicy and flavorful it needs no added frills whatsoever. Still if you decide to splurge, you can serve...

I am proudly expanding my Low Carb Treat Repertoire with this brand new star. This new dessert is the result of much tinkering, not only in honor of some severely sugar-restricted friends who want their dessert and eat it too, but for us! This dessert has everything going for it: low...

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...
