Posted on 13th of April, 2011 by Lévana

FARFEL-HOT-CEREAL

This delicious and super-nutritious dish is sure to be equally at home as a side dish and as a breakfast or even dessert! Kind of a new-age Matzah Brei but without the eggs. I created it years ago for my then-small daughter Bella, a cereal eater who at first asked...

Levana-Meringue-300x204

Kids, please: Don’t let’s get into a turf war with the distinguished and wonderful French Macarons, or with the  somewhat  less distinguished and ubiquitous canned Passover Macaroons that linger for months after Passover, or anything in between: Here come Meringues!  So move over sweeties, and let’s all play in the...

Artichokes and Carrots in Lemon Sauce Recipe

Posted on 4th of April, 2011 by Lévana

ARTICHOKES-AND-CARROTS-IN-LEMON-SAUCE

 Artichokes are a Sephardi favorite. In Morocco they are a staple, and I remember a variety I haven’t seen anywhere else: tiny, with pointed leaves as sharp as thorns, which we used to eat by the dozen at the end of a meal as dessert, much as the Japanese eat...

Posted on 25th of March, 2011 by Lévana

Charif3

When life gives you jalapenos, make charif! One Saturday night, Erev Purim, my daughter Bella complained that she had placed her Shabbos produce order online, and that something got lost in cyber-translation, turning 4 jalapenos and 6 tomatoes into 4 pounds jalapenos and 6 pounds plum tomatoes. But since she...
