Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons

I’ve never been a fan of those store-bought macaroons everyone gets around Passover. They feel dense, and I don’t think they taste that great either. My family seems to enjoy them, but that’s probably because they haven’t tasted a real, true, homemade macaroon. And now that they have, I doubt they’ll ever be able to […]

Golden Fried Matzo

One of my favorite things about Passover is my dad’s chocolate chip Matzobrei or “fried matzo.” He makes it every year. Eggs, matzo, chocolate chips and grape jelly — it’s our most loved Passover breakfast food. The recipe is super simple and takes no time at all to make, so anyone can do it. Since […]

Family Passover Sedar

It has been awhile since my last post about a family dinner get-together. Passover began last weekend, so tradition brought us all together for a seder dinner at my aunt’s. There are specific things you can’t eat during the week of Passover — basically anything made with flour. Despite the fact that this seems to […]

Recipe Spotlight: Chai Sugar Cookies

I’m not the only one in my family who blogs about food. In fact, my cousin Emily was one of the first bloggers I started to follow, and she is one of the first people to spark my interest in cooking. Check out her blog at Corcoran Street Kitchen; I promise you won’t be disappointed. […]

“Jewish Weapons of Mass Destruction”

My dad sent me this; I don’t know who wrote it, but it’s pretty funny so I had to share. People always ask me what the quintessential “Jewish” foods are. Well, here ya go! Jewish  Weapons of Mass Destruction Latkes: A pancake-like  structure, not to be confused with anything a first-class health restaurant  would put out. In […]

On the 4th Day of Hanukkah…

One of the most popular Hanukkah food is the latke, a fried pancake made with potato, flour and egg with onion or garlic for flavoring. Latkes are often eaten with applesauce or sour cream. No one makes a better latke than my dad. Made with grated potatoes and onions, his latkes are super thin and […]

On the 3rd Day of Hanukkah…

Happy 3rd night of Hanukkah! Here’s a twist on another delicious Jewish dish: Mini Sweet Potato Knishes! The traditional knish is baked or fried dough filled with potato, a meat mixture, kasha (buckwheat) or cheese. Other versions of this appetizer have fillings made of fruit, spinach, and even tuna fish. I decided to change up […]
