Chocolate Coeur a la Crème is one of those simple and delectable recipes I saw Emeril make on his show way back when, and it just stuck with me. That often happens to me (with food). You know, I see it once (I don’t even have to taste it) and I can’t get it out of my mind until I make it mine. Finally the day has come and I am thrilled to share this delicious, perfectly balanced, light, yet indulgent dessert in all its glory with you!

Every year at this time I usually put together a list of my favorite Passover recipes for you.  You can find some of my favorite collections from previous years here and here.  This time around I thought to feature some of my favorite recipes from some of my favorite foodie friends – so you can be inspired by the food and folks that inspire me.

Yes, the rumor is true. I did eat 6 of these all by my lonesome when testing the recipe. Now in the interest of full disclosure I ate 3 for breakfast (was a late breakfast, more like brunch) and 3 for lunch (was a late lunch, more like linner). And yes you may have heard that I also fried up some extra eggplant to snack on in between. And while some people may be embarrassed to admit this I think it just proves how much of a winner this recipe really is. So hang on to your hats folks and watch me fry and roll and bake your new favorite Passover and year-round brunch, lunch, linner or dinner dish.


 

Kosher Pastured Raised Top of the Rib *Giveaway*

Using only seven ingredients, our signature concept, our Red Wine Top of the Rib recipe is easy to make and is fall-apart delicious! The trick to tenderized, fall-apart meat is to slice it against the grain after the initial cooking process and then to put it back in the oven for a final roast. We highly recommend that you use red wine that you can enjoy after the recipe is complete; try a full flavored wine such as a Merlot or a Shiraz. The red wine adds so much flavor to the recipe and may help to tenderize the meat as well.

You are probably most familiar with hash browns, the ever favorite, breakfast/brunch potato side popular in diners and restaurants everywhere.  Hash browns refer to any type of pan fried potatoes, usually mixed with onions and seasoning, but there is no strict rule though. As you may have noticed, sometimes hash browns are shredded, sometimes they are diced big or small, but as long as the potatoes are browned in a pan they call them hash browns.  Some places, although less common in kosher places, offer corned beef hash, which is corned beef sautéed with potatoes.  Mike’s Bistro makes a nice version of that dish.  Although traditionally potatoes are used in most hash recipes, there are so many wonderful vegetables that can work in place of the potatoes. Also, it is a great way to use up leftovers.

Pesach or not, I use the Zucchini spaghetti trick whenever I want to indulge in pasta without the guilt. I’m sure I told you (more than) once that I used to travel with my handheld julienne peeler in my purse. It’s that nifty of a tool.


 

Kosher Pastured Duck Confit *Giveaway*

Duck confit, a traditional French recipe, is an indulgent and sinfully-good dish. The process of confit is centuries-old and consists of curing and then cooking the duck in its rendered fat. The technique of rubbing the seasoning on the duck and letting it chill for 24 hours allows for the meat to cure and to take in the spices. The duck confit and rendered fat can be kept in a sealed jar for up to six months. Our Apricot Glazed Duck Confit recipe is not too difficult, but the final product is delicious and tender.

Have you ever tried cooking your chicken low and slow? It is a common method of cooking the best brisket, but not as well known for chicken.  There are a few ways to do this, our recipe takes advantage of garlic and lemon and some chicken broth to really bring out all the flavor.  Our chicken cooked for a few minutes at 400 degrees, but then the oven temp is reduced to 250 and the chicken cooks for another 1 hour and 45 minutes until it reaches the perfect golden color you see in the picture.   The meat is moist and delicious and the skin comes out perfectly crispy.
