It’s Summertime and the cooking is easy. There aren’t many days that I feel the urge to cook ad infintum over a fryer and multiple pots of boiling water. I tend to lean on the easy, which isn’t true the rest of the year – or of course for a holiday. I’m busy researching for a book so with time at a premium, I thought about a 15 minute soup.

Today, I was home with my sick 2 year old. She had fever and was up the whole night. I took off from work to stay home, be a good Mommy and take her to the doctor. I was exhausted, but took the “day off” as an opportunity to cook full speed ahead.

I made the Chestnut Challah Stuffing and Hearty Mushrooms. I prepped the stuffing and while it was in the oven I made the mushrooms. Both dishes totally done in an hour.

Brisket Is Best When…

…overcooked.  Really!  If you want that tender, soft, melt-in-your-mouth, fork tender, cuts like “butter” beef then brisket is your best friend, your baby, your #1.  Although in Israel it’s designated by the number #3 but that’s neither here nor there.  Most often we cookbook authors will end a brisket recipe with instructions to let it rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing against the grain and serving.  But really, there is a better way to do that and so much more.  Listen very closely to what I am writing and you are reading here:  No matter what the recipe tells you, mine included brisket is best when…

Since moving to Israel I now eat hummus and tehina and schug with everything.  Everything.  My eggs, my salads, my burgers.  Growing up in the good ‘ol USA I loaded my burgers with the usual, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, plus lots of ketchup – nestled in the expected sesame bun sandwich.  One of the cool culinary perks of moving across the ocean is the exposure to a whole new world of flavors and food traditions.  I’ve become a lot more adventurous in the kitchen.  It goes without saying that regional foods have become staples but I am also exercising and opening up my palate in lots of new ways.

As I prepare to leave for the summer (Israel here I come!), I can’t help but think about how it can be difficult to switch gears when it comes to preparing food for fewer people.  As you can well imagine, I’m a big fan of food and therefore of cooking.  When I’m home my family’s fridge is happily stocked with meals to feed our family, if not a few more people.  If your kids are leaving for the summer, really take advantage of spending less time cooking by not only having to prepare for less people, but also by making meals which are quick and can easily be repurposed.  Below you’ll find 30 minute meals that can truly go the distance.

 


 

Summer Barbecue 101: Planning a Healthy Cookout

Summertime is the time when many of our spouses love to don their chef’s apron and light up the barbecue grill to cook outdoors.  Personally, I love it!  I do prepare the foods in the house, the marinades, salads etc.   I set up everything in individual Tupperware containers with seals, so they stay bug-free outdoors, than I let “hubbie” take over!  I am free to enjoy my guests without worrying about the cooking. All the men also love to congregate around the barbecue grill sharing their opinions.

Grilling is a favorite summer cooking technique that enhances the flavor of many dishes, including lean meat, skinless chicken breasts, fish, veggies, and even fruits. Whether you’re already a grill master — or aspiring to become one — you’ll still benefit from using the right grilling utensils. If you are a“newbie”, make sure you have the following equipment on hand before you get started. (clicking on the links will take you to our Amazon store page)

Growing up it was just the two of us girls, my younger sister and I.  My sister, always the pickiest of eaters never really ate at dinner time (she inconveniently was never hungry for what we were all eating when we were all eating it), but was always hungry for something other than dinner later in the evening, prompting one of my mom’s famous lines…

“THE KITCHEN IS CLOSED!”
