Dear reader, please don’t ask me why until recently I found the preparation of lasagna so daunting, while I can whip up a couscous or a Bourguignon or an apple tarte and much more to feed a dozen guests, in no time flat and with great alacrity, and if I...

Shhhh, don’t tell anyone! I get really lazy about preparing Shabbos meals on hot summer days when we have no guests, in part because my husband always votes for salads, in all shapes or form, and very little else. So imagine my excitement when I received Aileen Magnotto’s box containing...

I love the robust flavor of cauliflower, and the roasting intensifies it even further. I use frozen cauliflower, as it is already cut, cleaned, and every bit as delicious and nutritious!

We all used to pile into my mother-in-law’s small apartment for her famed dish and always lied to her that somehow ours didn’t come out as good as hers: Anything to have her make a vat of it, which would disappear in minutes. All the children in our family...

Guys, here’s what I do, and this is really all it takes. On second thought, let me start by telling you what NOT to do: Buy the insanely expensive deceptively and dishonestly called truffle oil, with not a solitary drop of truffle in it. Now, here’s what I do: I...

Delicious, and a snap to make! You could easily make this dish gluten-free: Rice or buckwheat noodles will taste just as delicious: that’s what I use, and not only because I like tolimit my gluten intake, but becasue I love to explore with the whole gamut of grains. So many...

Comfort food at its best and easiest. And healthiest: In Morocco we grew up on this kind of dessert my mother, an ingenious cook if I ever met one, used to whip up at the drop of a hat, for children big and small. Do look for orange flower water,...

Yerushalmi Kugel A great Jewish favorite, and a real showcase in Israeli synagogues at Kiddush time: I have seen two burly men flip an enormous pot of it onto a gigantic counter, then slice it across its whole diameter in two or three places with a knife about three feet...

I too used to watch longingly everyone enjoy their pasta, while I watched helplessly, or worse, decided to bite the bullet, have the wheat pasta dishes and pay with a few days of discomfort. No longer, no sir! Here’s a menu that will make my point in full, as delicious...

Photo Courtesy of moroccoworldnews.com A beloved Moroccan classic, called Bessara. This soup costs pennies, and tastes like a million bucks. I make it in summer too, and served it iced (see variation below). You might choose to serve this dish not as a soup but as a side dish. In...
