March 26th 2014By Jamie Geller

I’m kind of a connoisseur when it comes to Shakshuka.  The fact that I have ordered it in most every restaurant that serves it should certainly qualify me as an expert of some sort, dontchya think? I have had Spinach and Cream Shakshuka at Café Rimon in Mamilla, an open air mall outside the Old City of Jerusalem.  I have had Leek and Eggplant Shakshuka at Gavna an outdoor cafe overlooking the Judean Hills in the Gush and I have had the traditional tomato and pepper Shakshuka at café...

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.

Additionally, with all the nosh, cakes, and sweets everyone receives, your recipients will be thrilled to receive “real” food that they can...
