Banana Coconut Poppy Seed Cake Recipe. Gluten-Free Adaptation included.

Last night, Erev Lag Baomer, I was baking up a storm for my children’s Lag Baomer BBQ party, Chabad of Washington Heights. I am always graciously asked, don’t you dare show up without my chocolate chip cookies so of course, I made a mountain of these. I had lots of bananas...

Moroccan Spicy Romaine Lettuce Chickpea Salad Recipe

One of my favorites, overlaid with Moroccan flavors. All of you out there always asking how we turn a same old, same old salad into an exciting Sephardi main course chickpea salad: You can glorify it even further by throwing in some leftover diced fish or chicken, or make it...

Moroccan Almond, Honey and Argan Oil Spread (Amlou) Recipe

Moroccan Almond, Honey and Argan Oil Spread (Amlou) Recipe

The treat of my childhood: peanut butter and jelly Moroccan-style called Amlou. The original spread is made with Argan oil, an insanely expensive and insanely delicious oil, from a tree called argan growing only in Morocco (you can find it online, complete with the somewhat scatological trivia its cultivation is...

Mock Crab Corn Apple Salad Recipe

I whipped up this salad this past Shabbos, that’s right, on Shabbos, for my husband and I, as I was hatching a meal spartan enough (and of course delicious enough!) to atone for some of the magnificent meals we indulged in the whole Pessach week (don’t get me wrong: No...

Matbukha Recipe and Shakshuka Variation. Gluten-Free

Matbukha (Salade Cuite) is one of our Moroccan favorite dishes, a sort of comfort food for expats and honorary Sephardis alike: See how they mop that sauce with their bread! My Matbukha version has roasted garlic in it, for a an easily added wonderful layer of flavor. Shakshuka is nothing...

Hummus Recipe. All Variations

I bet you thought hummus comes in pint containers and no other way. That’s how ubiquitous commercial hummus has become—a marked improvement over many mediocre commercial offerings, but commercial nonetheless. But wait till you see (a) how simple it is to whip up and (b) how many hats it wears,...

Tilapia With Fresh Tomatoes and Lemons Recipe. Vegetarian and Other Variations

I love tilapia fillets, versatile, widely available and inexpensive. I always use the large ones (7 to 9 ounces), they never let me down or go to pieces on me during the cooking process. I serve it quite often when my husband and I spend shabbos alone, and want to...
