A model of Moroccan food simplicity. Another soup that costs pennies, takes minutes, and tastes like a million bucks. Vegetarian without even trying, and so much richer than the sum of its plebeian parts. This is practically my granddaughter Tsofia’s first solid food. And guess who fed her: Who better...

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 still...

I trust you should have no trouble whatsoever finding dozens of delicious minestrone recipes, made the loving unhurried way. My idea for this quick and incredibly satisfying version of the classic was: How can I play with the same ingredients and get a great soup in a fraction of the...

Ready in a snap: So nice to know we have options that are dairy-free, low-gluten, and gluten-free. The secret of good corn bread is to stick your empty greased pan in the oven while you whip up the batter to get it really good and hot; this way the baking gets a...

Pecan Brownies Here comes the timeless classic, the little black dress of your dessert repertoire. I whip them up at the drop of a hat: I am often asked to do just that, so I double the recipe and pour the batter into a (real please, not disposable) large cookie...

A chowder almost always signals the presence of potatoes, and a hearty creamy-chunky texture. This one has an added appeal: a lovely pale yellow color. Make this soup only with fresh corn please, when it is tender and sweet. This soup packas a great flavor punch, and needs no help...

Sounds dead-good-for-you-serious, doesn’t it? that is until you taste it: Plump and moist and chock full of goodies. I make it with spelt flour too, so it’s a win-win. As you may know, I am hard at work on my next cookbook, and all sweeteners are “under investigation” in each...

I have no quarrel with mock crab or shrimp, except for the fact that the formatting emulates “the real thing”, but the good news is, it’s delicious and all natural, so, tweak the look and go for it! I am including several presentations here for this salad. All your slicing...

I play endlessly with latkas, both sweet and savory, and from around the world where they might not call them latkas, but fritters, beignets, bunuelos etc…. One big happy fritter family! There’s no vegetable or fruit you can’t make latkas out of, and when you go over my primer on...
