Skirt Steak Recipes

March 18th 2014By Tamar Genger MA, RD

I don’t eat meat often. Mostly I save it as a treat for Shabbat, when I can splurge a bit more on the price and the calories.  The trick is finding quality cuts of meat and great recipes that can be made ahead. I found a winner a winner with skirt steak. Skirt steak is a thin cut of steak that is prized for its flavor and tenderness, but you have to be careful because it can be very salty.  Most kosher meat is salty, but I still usually sprinkle a little coarsely ground salt and ground...

March 5th 2014By esthero

Spread the Cheer this Purim!!! I was so excited when Tamar asked me to design a Mishloach Manot using Natural and Kosher Cheeses. I have always thought that a cheese board would make a great Mishloach Manot. Cheeses pair well with bread, wine, and grapes (just to name a few), and with little effort can be arranged to make a striking presentation. Additionally, with all the nosh, cakes, and sweets everyone receives, your recipients will be thrilled to receive “real” food that they can...

February 25th 2014By Tamar Genger MA, RD

Even though we had an extra month of Adar this year I still feel like all of a sudden Purim is creeping up on me.  I have been undecided about my plan for Mishloach Manot this year when I got a call from Oh! Nuts.  I knew all about Oh! Nuts, I love the gift baskets they sell, but I usually prepare my own baskets and I didn’t realize the extent of what they sold.  Turns out they are are a mecca of supplies to help make any food gift basket, especially though for Purim.  They have homemade...

Rena Rossner was inspired about ten years ago while eating a hot bowl of red lentil soup.  That fateful soup began a journey for Rena that culminated in her first cookbook, Eating the Bible.  Eating the Bible takes us through the weekly Torah portions with quoted verses and a little bit of commentary that connects us to a recipe.  Rena find connections similar to the way I do in our Shabbat Menus and I had fun going through and finding new ideas I had never thought of before.  I also...

February 2nd 2014By Carmit

Food, we know, has magical properties. So, too, do the stories behind their recipes. They resurrect those who are gone. They let you travel through time. They become mythology. As a personal historian, I interview people and write their life stories into heirloom books. Usually it is the children or grandchildren who commission me, seeking to preserve their family legacy. Some of my subjects are world-famous. Some are ordinary folk. No matter, the wisdom and intimacy I encounter are...
