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...

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...

March 24th 2015By Jamie Geller

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

March 17th 2015By Jamie Geller

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...


Kosher Pastured Raised Top of the Rib *Giveaway*

Top of RibFI

March 16th 2015By Seven Bites

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...
