17th of November, 2014

vegan

Bravo to Cara Reed for the recent publication of her book, Decadent Gluten Free Vegan Baking. I would feel much better starting with the kinks in the book, and get them out of the way, so we can move on to the good stuff. - Cara’s blog, Fork and Beans, is lovely....

OATrageous Oatmeals. Kathy Hester. Book Review

1st of October, 2014

9781624140747

http://www.amazon.com/OATrageous-Oatmeals-Surprising-Plant-Based-Heart-Healthy/dp/1624140742 Bravo to Kathy Hester for her delightful new Cookbook OATrageous Oatmeals. The title alone is a great promise, a promise Kathy Hester keeps throughout the book. Beside the obvious OATrageous pun, I do love the tweaking of oatmeal, that little “s” at the end propels oatmeal from a humble...

Taste-of-Beirut-Levana-Cooks

http://www.amazon.com/Taste-Beirut-Delicious-Lebanese-Contemporary/dp/0757317707 After regaling us these past several years with her blog, Taste of Beirut, Joumana Accad has recently published a cookbook of her favorite native Lebanese dishes in a book also named Taste of Beirut.

Beef-Potato-Tajine-Levana-Cooks

This Rosh Hashana we hosted three meals: Wednesday Night Dinner; Thursday Lunch; Friday Night Dinner. I am including here not only all the Rosh Hashana dishes we served at each meal, but – good utilitarian that I am – what I did with the leftovers before they become leftovers. I think...

My Latest Sheva Brachot Dinner Menu and Recipes

16th of September, 2014

Cheeses-Levana-Cooks

We usually try to host our nephews and nieces’ Sheva Brachot right after their wedding, before most of the out-of-town guests disband. But this last wedding, for my nephew Meir Abner, took place in Montreal, as well as all subsequent Sheva Brachot, except ours,  which took place last night, and...

Food, Family and Tradition. Hungarian Kosher Recipes. Lynn Kirsche Shapiro. My Book Review

4th of September, 2014

Food-Family-and-tradition-levana-cooks

Gee thanks  Sammy’s Romanian, dubbed Heartburn City, for serving Treif  Shmaltz all these years, right in the Lower East Side, the original American scene of the religious Jewish settlers, to emancipated immigrants who want authentic Eastern European food (Romanian, Hungarian, Polish: all quite closely related) with no kosher strings attached. I can only contemplate...

Maia: New and Best Greek Yogurt. My Product Review

23rd of July, 2014

Maia-Yogurt-Levana-Cooks

In a memorable scene of the movie As Good As It Gets, bigoted, homophobic, irascible pet-fiend Jack Nicholson is actually seen crying about a neighbor’s dog he had previously stuffed into a trash chute and who was pulled out miraculously, saying something like “Can you imagine this? I am crying! about...

California Gourmet Vegan Chocolate Chips Are Here!

17th of July, 2014

Vegan Chocolate chips

Trader Joe recently caused an uproar both in the Kosher Community and the Dairy-Intolerant Community by switching their chocolate chips from Pareve to dairy. When I wrote about the Gastronomic Uproar at Trader Joe’s , I positively clamored for our community to urge chocolate manufacturers to fill the void. My war cry...

365 Vegan Smoothies Book Review

17th of July, 2014

smoothies book

Kudos to Kathy Patalsky for her beautiful new book, 365 Vegan Smoothies.  I suspect the 365 allusion is fully intentional, and expresses you would do well with a smoothie a day, a different smoothie every day of the year. How exciting is that? Not for nothing does Kathy run a blog...
