The Joy of Kosher Cookbook, It’s Personal…*Giveaway*

October 8th 2013By Jamie Geller

You’ll hear people say my new Joy of Kosher is not exactly a cookbook – what they really mean is it’s not just a cookbook with the yummiest most delicious, most glorious food – it’s a book about life, my life.  Literally. I ripped pages out of my diary and swiped pictures of my family and put them into this book.  Nearly 400 pages of food, family, life and love. You’ll want to hug this book.  I do.  I really wrote it for you ‘cuz I want to hug you.  You have no way of...

 

8 Ways to Enjoy Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews *Giveaway*

October 3rd 2013By Jamie Geller

I’m a Philly girl – born and raised.  But y’all know that already.  What you didn’t know is that Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews are from Philly too. At the time, I didn’t know that they were being made in my backyard. Peanut Chews were developed by the Goldenberg Candy Company, which was founded by Romanian immigrant, David Goldenberg in 1890.  My parents are also Romanian immigrants.  (Oooooh the plot thickens!)  That peanut-molasses chocolate-coated delight is a major throwback...

So for this one I had a little help from my friends.  First I needed a great recipe.  That’s where my neighbor, who just happens to be a professional baker stepped in.  Meet Amy Schneider of Amy’s.  She makes cakes, cookies, cupcakes and more sweet treats exclusive and made-to-order for everyone’s simchas and celebrations in these parts.  Mike and Ikes are her favorite candy, maybe that’s what we get along so well.  Her favorite flavor is blue, mine is red – so maybe that’s really why...

New Joy of Kosher Cookbook Q&A *Giveaway*

 
Joy of Kosher Cookbook

August 28th 2013By Jamie Geller

I figure you may be wondering about my new Joy of Kosher cookbook, like what’s the Mah Nishtanah this time. So I interviewed myself, asking the questions people ask me.   If I missed anything you just gotta know, ask in the comments and I will answer you – a whole lot more fun than talking to myself. Q: So this is your third cookbook. Did you always want to write cookbooks? A: I always wanted to eat.  But cooking? Not so much. I had to learn out of necessity, so I taught myself,...

 

The Ultimate Kosher Gift Basket for Rosh Hashanah *Giveaway*

 
Kosher Fruit Basket

August 27th 2013By Tamar Genger MA, RD

There is something so exciting about receiving a kosher gift basket filled with unexpected (and delicious) gourmet goodies.   I am reminded of that magic Mary Poppins purse and wonder how they fit so many yummy foods in one basket and made it look so pretty!  As our thoughts turn to celebrating the Jewish holidays with family and friends and sharing our love with those who live too far away or aren’t able to join us around the table, I am reminded again why a specially made Rosh...

The Modern Menu

August 20th 2013By Tamar Genger MA, RD

Kim Kushner has become known for her healthy, hearty and seasonal foods through her private chef business in Manhattan and now her new cookbook, The Modern Menu.  You know how when you learn a new word all of a sudden you hear that word everywhere?  Well, that is what happened with me and Kim.  Kim’s book came out in March and I have been wanting to talk to her and write about her book, but other things kept getting in the way.  Then I saw the book at a friends house one Shabbat, the...

 

The Best Olive Oil For Rosh Hashanah *Giveaway*

August 14th 2013By Tamar Genger MA, RD

You all know how much Jamie loves to share Simanim inspired recipes and menus this time of year. It’s a fun challenge to integrate as many Simanim (symbolic) foods as we can over the course of the high holidays and start the New Year right. So I want to take us beyond tradition.  If someone can suggest that celery and raisins on your Rosh Hashanah table will help you get a “raise in salary” then I’m willing to go so far to suggest that adding more olive to your meals will increase the love...
