Cappuccino Chocolate Chip, Pecan Swirl, Pumpkin Cream Cheese...

It will be difficult for us to choose which flavor muffin to indulge our taste buds when our “Shop ‘til You Drop” group to Israel visits the Muffin Boutique at 16 Ben Yehuda.

The aesthetically pleasing and warm atmosphere of the store is absolutely due to the charm and

Breakfast for Dinner

Everyone has done it. You all know you’ve done it. We all have, at one point in time or another. Come on, it’s late, you are out of time, out of ideas, and you have no other options. It’s going to be breakfast for dinner. And I’m not talking about “breakfast” for dinner, with the fancy chocolate chip banana pancakes,

Moss Cafe: The New Riverdale Hub

Like its name, Moss Cafe is a delicately decorated, burgeoning, farm-to-table cafe, quietly nestled between a cleaners and hair salon on Johnson Ave. in Riverdale. The six-month-old cafe’s minimalist typography, natural lighting and large glass store-front is an eye-catcher to passersby.

Katsuji Tanabe Repeats One-Day Mexikosher Pitopia Pop-Up

Manhattan–Foodies of all backgrounds–but certainly the vast majority kosher-keeping Jews–lined Broadway near Times Square on December 15 for the second-ever Mexikosher Pop-up at Pitopia.

Kosher Beef Jerky? What Will They Think of Next?

How many times have you watched people walk out of a 7-Eleven, bodega or depanneur (as they call it in Quebec) with a purchase of beef jerky?

Mulling Over Chanukah: Three Recipes to Liven Up Shabbos Chanukah

More than most Jewish Holidays, Chanukah is a festival celebrated by consuming traditional, regional foods—the very thought of the holiday can often make one salivate. For Jews of Russian/Lithuanian ancestry, the food of choice is potato latkes, for Polish Jews it’s ratzelech (latkes made with a mixture of potatoes and apples),

The Tasty Moments of Chanukah

To most of us when we hear that Chanukah is coming, we start savoring the taste of latkes on our palates. Everyone has their special way of making them. Some shred the potatoes in the food processor, others feel that it doesn’t have the same ta’am if the potatoes are not grated by hand (obviously the miniscule pieces of skin

The Festival of Fried Food

Are you an applesauce or sour cream type? Gravlax? Or perhaps creme fraiche with caviar? Just plain? Doesn’t matter how you eat them, it’s just not Chanukah without the scent of frying oil in the house. The kind of smell that clings to your skin, hair and clothes. You just can’t get rid of it, can you? But then again, you
