How To Grill The Perfect Steak [Video]

Perfect Grilled Steak

June 2nd 2015By Jamie Geller

This was the most funnest (I don’t care if that’s not really a word) shoot ever!  Why?  For the following 4 reasons: 1) I wasn’t alone.  I am mostly all by my lonesome (boo hoo hoo) in front of the camera and it can get hard to keep smiling and keep my energy up throughout a 16 hour day.  So it was SOOOOOO great to have my friend Naf Hanau from co-host this BEST EVER STEAK episode with me.  We were talking and eating and making his secret spice rub and my secret...

May 19th 2015By Jamie Geller

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. I met Zissie a few years later at KFWE and she told me she was planning to make aliyah. So we promised to meet up on this side of the pond when she arrived. We kept true to our word and met at a bagel shop in Beit Shemesh which was like a little lunch love fest and decided we...


Our Favorite Cheese Blintzes Recipes Plus Variations

Chocolate Cheese Blintzes

May 11th 2015By Joy of Kosher

Continuing with our dairy recipe roundup theme, here are our favorite blintz recipes for Shavuot.  Last week we extolled the virtues of cheesecake as a Shavuot staple and this week we share the need for blintzes, the next best dairy food for Shavuot. A traditional blintz is a thin crepe like pancake filled with cottage cheese and that is where will begin, but who ever said we have to stick to tradition? Blintzes are so versatile, once you get the crepe right you can really fill it with...

5 Ways To Swap The Mayo with Babaganoush

Babagnoush Egg Salad85

April 1st 2015By Joy of Kosher

Mayo is a very popular condiment. Aside from the classic tuna and egg salads made with mayo, many people include it in every sandwich. The fact that it is also parve means even we kosher keepers can include it at every meal and there some people that do. On Passover, regular mayo which is often made with canola oil is not available and instead the Passover versions don’t quite compare. On a holiday when every ingredient matters, it is best to try something with a little more pizazz. Avocado...


Banana and Peach Matzo Brie Bake Video

March 31st 2015By Jamie Geller

I love talking to foodies. Cause I know you know what it’s like to fall asleep and dream about breakfast. I always have these grand plans to wake up early and make any number of sweet and savory breakfast-like-a-king spreads. Problem is, in addition to being a foodie I’m a snooze-y. You know the kinda gal who keeps pressing snooze and rolling over until the last possible minute. And then I press snooze and roll over at least one more time, for good luck. This baby of breakfast – my...

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! Emeril served his Chocolate Coeur a la Crème with...
