We Moroccans love squash in every way shape of form, and goodness knows it comes in countless shapes and sizes. They turn up in many Moroccan dishes (Couscous on top of the list). Their spicy sweetness is equally at home in savory dishes (I love Pumpkin Corn Pudding) and in...

This salad dressing is delightful not only over greens, but also with fish or chicken, grilled or poached. The pungent curry is a wonderful foil for the fruity and tart mango. Use only as much dressing as will lightly coat your greens, and include with your greens some diced fresh...

Poor parsnips too often serve as crowd actor, and then get discarded (as in chicken soup), but here they are “it”. Who knew they could be so fabulous? hot and sweet is a great treatment for them, and the easiest. They are delicious at room temperature as well. Sephardi Tsimmis?...

I always thought I made a good onion soup, if I may say so myself: My original recipe is in my first cookbook, Levana’s Table. But I recently received from my daughter Bella a magnificent wheel of Manchego, and decided to replace all the cheese I usually put in with...

I usually find the holiday pecan pie almost too sweet for human consumption, but when I add a pumpkin filling, the customary cloying sweetness is pleasantly mitigated. Besides, pumpkin and pecans are a match made in dessert heaven. This pie adapt beautifully to gluten-free needs, as you could make the...

Mediterranean flavors at their best. A frequent Passover treat at my table. I find brussels sprouts somewhat underrated and underused in our country.

Who knew they could be made right at home? And who knows why they are called Chinese cookies for that matter? I don’t think the Chinese have ever even heard of them. It’s a little like French kiss or French laundry or French goodness knows what else, which always leaves...
