Everyone loves a plate of grilled vegetables, to eat as is or to use as a filling for sandwiches. I have chosen to share the most ridiculously simple way. First of all, please don’t find me disingenuous: Some of us, including yours truly, were not blessed with a backyard or porch...

We are hosting just one meal, Shavuot lunch.

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...

Low Carb Suggestions, Menus and Recipes When my son Maimon was a teenage schoolboy, he told his father: “Tati, you know what I heard old age is? That’s when your broad mind and narrow waist switch places”. Not missing a beat, my husband snapped right back at him that his...

As always, I ignore the eggplant’s insatiable appetite for oil, skip the frying and roast the slices, just enough to make them pliable and ready to roll! No problem making eggplant roulades with gluten-free bread crumbs. These...
