I just spent hours picking some fellow bloggers’ brains, about how to rename beef cheeks. The name bothers me no end. when I say cheeks, I imagine something inviting, rosy and kissable. But to a cow? It ain’t happening! Now that we had this little talk, let me tell you...

I always wonder if tilapia might suffer from underrating and mild neglect in the States. Economical, versatile and flavorful, there’s nothing I don’t do with it! This is one of the few recipes I fry, and it is a real treat. For a crust, I find cornmeal gives matzah meal...

Apple Noodle Kugel is a huge favorite in Jewish cooking. Unfortunately, it can often err on the rich and eggy side. I have tinkered with the ingredients, and ended up with a lean, easy eggless (suitable for our vegan friends) and delicious kugel. Delicious enough even to be dessert, and...

I tinkered with a dessert that would be a nutritionally … hmm not exactly lean, but much more affordable and no less delicious version of creme brulee or creme caramel. The Latin Flan to the rescue! We grew up eating it: it is unpretentious and closely related to its rich...

A favorite Sephardi Flavor marriage: Sesame and anise. These cookies are impossibly fragrant, crisp and delicious. They get their funky flavor and texture from the chick-pea flour, and are a snap to adapt to Gluten-Free. Just to be clear: 2 cups chick pea flour, plus 2 cups any flour of...

A classical and delightful salad combination, you will love the inclusion of orange flower water which makes so many of our Moroccan dishes so fragrant. If it is too hard to find on Passover, just skip it. Give your food processor all your slicing to do, and reduce your labor....
