365 Vegan Smoothies Book Review

17th of July, 2014

smoothies book

Kudos to Kathy Patalsky for her beautiful new book, 365 Vegan Smoothies.  I suspect the 365 allusion is fully intentional, and expresses you would do well with a smoothie a day, a different smoothie every day of the year. How exciting is that? Not for nothing does Kathy run a blog...

Bubbie-levana-cooks

It’s been just a year since my husband Maurice’s mother Fanya – Bubbie – passed away. Bubbie was Fan for her four boys, Maurice, Avrum, Sol and Sam, the ultimate Em Habanim (sons’ mother).

Ask Levana: Is Coconut Yogurt Dairy-Free?

26th of May, 2014

Ask Levana: Is Coconut Yogurt Dairy-Free?

I was recently asked if coconut yogurt is a dairy-free product.  The answer is Yes!  Coconut yogurt is dairy-free, and most importantly its flavor is very unobtrusive and doesn’t compete at all with the other two major flavors I am starring in this dish: Chocolate and peanut butter. You will...
