I have begun living a gluten free, grain free, dairy free lifestyle.

This means I need to completely change my perspective on eating, especially on holidays, such as on the dairy-heavy holiday we just passed, Shavuot. For many people, eating gluten, grain and dairy free is not a lifestyle choice but rather a matter of life and death. For me, this is a choice I have made in order to take control over my eating habits and manage my type 1 diabetes.

Bronzino With Fig-Mint Salad Posted 05/22/2015 by Chef Seth Warshaw
This dish is perfect for vegetarians who eat fish. If you cannot find fresh figs, substitute with dry figs. If you do not eat fish, skip the fish and follow the rest of the directions for this unique salad. In place of fish you can also add haloumi cheese or extra-firm tofu. Simply pan-fry haloumi cheese or tofu, using the same technique Chef Warshaw shares for the fish.

We have this expression in Italian, “Essere come il prezzemolo,” (to be like parsley), which can be loosely translated as “to have a finger in every pie” and is used to describe someone who seems to always turn up everywhere. That should be enough to give you an idea of how ubiquitous parsley is in Italian cooking, probably because, when used in small amounts, it gives foods a boost without adding a distinctive flavor – all year long and in all kinds of dishes, from soups to sauces, from seafood to meat.

Gluten Free Butter Cookies Posted 05/21/2015 by Orly Gottesman
Shortly after completing my studies at The Cordon Bleu in Sydney, I developed a line of “Orly the Baker” gluten free baked goods at a popular chain of restaurants in Arizona called Chompie’s. I introduced gluten free versions of all their most popular breads and pastries including bagels, challah, black and white cookies, butter cookies and rugelach to name a few. The butter cookies were my favorite items to make because I loved piping different shapes and sizes, and decorating the cookies with melted chocolate and multi-colored sprinkles. For Shavuot, you can pipe mini rosette shapes with green and red or pink sprinkles to symbolize spring flowers!

Below are 7 commonly used herbs, with 3 featured recipes per herb. There are a range of dishes, both common and unexpected (check out the special herb desserts).

In a little county inn in Israel on the boarder of Lebanon my husband found true love… in a salad.

I’ve never actually seen him react to vegetables in that way, although he’s quite a foodie.


 

A Memorial Day Shavuot Menu

This year Memorial day is the second day of Shavuot.  I remember the last time they overlapped I took advantage and went to the beach, but this year I am staying put and hoping someone will invite me to a Shavuot Memorial Day BBQ.  I am all about the dairy, as you can see in last week’s dairy Shavuot menu, but we have 4 meals, not including Shabbat and I like outdoor cooking, so here it is, my meat BBQ menu that works for Memorial Day and Shavuot.

Since there is so much eating going on I am still going to keep it light with a focus on chicken.

It’s hard to remember when I first heard about Chef Zissie but I think it was on my friends Melinda’s Kitchen-Tested Blog back in December of 2012. But as is my style, when I see a good thing I just don’t forget it.


 

No Pasta “Mac” and Cheese Recipes

Confession time!!  My secret comfort food has always been Fold’s Macaroni and Cheese.  As a teenager I could finish a box and barely feel guilty about it afterwards. At least I made it all by myself.  It doesn’t get easier than mac and cheese out of a box and what is it about bright orange cheese powder that just gets me salivating?

Truthfully,

The Jewish holiday of Shavuot begins in the evening on Saturday, May 23, 2015 and ends in the evening of Monday, May 25, 2015.

As we prepare for the giving of the Torah and three days of meals and entertaining with family and friends, our thoughts turn to the Holy Land and its many natural blessings.  Approximately 800 meters above sea level, overlooking the breathtaking views of the Benjamin strip in the Judean desert, lies some of the most fertile soil for winemaking on earth.  The region enjoys cold nights and warm sunny days, creating the ideal climate for the production of fine wines and Shiloh Winery has set a new standard of craftsmanship as one of the most awarded wineries in Israel since its founding in 2005.

Sweet Ricotta Bruschetta Posted 05/18/2015 by Seven Bites
When I'm trying to stay away from those heavy and filling cheeses like mozzarella or cheddar, my go-to is ricotta. Its light and creamy texture is easy to cook with, especially when you are short on time. This bruschetta recipe is a great appetizer to serve on Shavuot, as the prep and cook time in total is 15 minutes and will give you more time to focus on your main dishes. The honey gives your appetizer an element of sweetness that pairs well with the citrus tomatoes and ricotta cheese. Enjoy your dairy filled holiday.

Savory Green Chard Blintz Posted 05/15/2015 by Chef Karen Nicolas
The chard adds a unique spin and ups the health factor of the classic Jewish comfort food dish, the potato blintz. In place of chard, you can use any green of substance. You can even use frozen spinach, just make sure to defrost and squeeze out all extra liquid.

Gluten Free Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza Posted 05/14/2015 by Orly Gottesman
The first time my husband and I visited Chicago, he took me to Giordano’s Pizzeria just to make me take in the smells of the pizza. Even though he could no longer eat the deep-dish pizza, his former favorite dish, the smell was enough of an experience to satisfy his nostalgia for the days before celiac and kosher. Shortly after developing Blends by Orly, I was given the challenging opportunity to develop a gluten-free deep-dish pizza for a restaurant in LA. You can only imagine the excitement in my husband’s eyes (and mouth) when he dug his teeth into his first gluten-free deep-dish pizza. This recipe has a crusty outside and soft doughy inside. If you don’t want to make your own sauce, you can use jarred tomato sauce. This extra cheesy Gluten Free Chicago Style Pizza will impress all at your Shavuot table.
