Italian for “pick-me-up”, probably because it puts together three of our favorite intense robust flavors: rum, chocolate and coffee (please don’t try to substitute any of them!). This dessert is so fabulous that I never bother to make the original dairy version. It’s also healthier, thanks to my staunch ally...

Please ignore those insipid cooked polenta rolls you find in the supermarket: Making the polenta base takes minutes, and is the bulk of the work for this delicious dish, which will serve a good dozen guests! Au Gratin just means it is topped with a crust: Yum! This is only...

Artichokes: A great Sephardi favorite, we grew up in Morocco, eating them in every shape and form, even for dessert. Someone in the food industry, bless him, has done all the pesky job of snapping the leaves off the artichokes, and the even peskier job of scraping the fuzz off the artichoke...

This bottle was part of a gorgeous Mishloach Manot/birthday present basket I received from my daughter Bella. Reading the ingredient list created an uproar among my guests. Intrigued, I looked online for the price, which created some more consternation….I am hoping this image and the blurb that came with it...

Another brisket of mine with wacky ingredients that comes out to die for! Just ask all the guests that were at my Seder Demo last night: They were falling like flies! So sorry about indulging in some un-ladylike swagger! This star was recently born when I was tinkering with coffee,...

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,...

Photo Courtesy of hubpages.com Still looking for a fabulous homemade Mishloach Manot treat, one that will last until Passover and beyond? Chutney! No store-bought chutney comes close to homemade! Chutneys, from the Hindi “to be licked” (an inspired derivation, if you have ever tasted a good one), are relishes that...

This recipe is in all my cookbooks, including my upcoming one. I can never make enough of these; and apparently, neither can thousands and thousands of people. A few years ago, I was involved with a few friends in a massive fund-raising project and made a million cookies (yes, a...
