Although not a traditional matzo brie, this French Toast Matzo with Dill Cream Cheese recipe is absolutely amazing for brunch or even breakfast for dinner. The French toast is 3 layers and uses fresh dill. With the elements you can't go wrong!!

BLUEBERRY AND CHEESE QUESADILLAS

Blueberry Cheese Quesadilla

 My Blueberry and Cheese Quesadillas make for a lovely summer lunch. Filled with blueberries, sliced peaches, goat cheese, red onion and thyme you can savor them warm or at room temp. In Israel (or anywhere else for that matter) you can skip the blueberries and instead add sliced plums, strawberries or even pitted cherries.

KALE AND RED PEPPER QUICHE

Kale and Red Pepper Quiche

Aunt Vennie’s Kale and Red Pepper Quiche is pure kosher soul food. This savory quiche is pareve, but full of flavor.  

BROWNIES

one bowl brownies

When you need a cake but don't have time or energy to get complicated, these one-bowl brownies are the answer. Don't just save them for emergencies though. They're always a great treat and can be either dairy or pareve.  

SOUTHWESTERN FRITTATA

Southwestern Frittata

Slice and serve wedges out of this hearty and pretty frittata— just divine with a dollop of sour cream and a touch of salsa.
