Fruit for Dessert, in Pie Form

E-mail Print PDF
I really hate taking healthy foods and making them unhealthy. Well, mostly I hate it. Like I hate dousing chicken or meat in sauces full of sugar or additives, or adding tons of sugar to a salad dressing. (Just because I hate it doesn’t mean I don’t do it, sometimes.)  I also hate taking fresh fruit and turning it...

You Can’t Beat Creamy Duck Confit Mashed Potatoes

E-mail Print PDF
This side dish is perfect for Thanksgiving or whenever you are looking for a dressed-up version of mashed potatoes for your meal. I like to serve these with herb-roasted chicken, braised barbecue brisket or a jam-glazed turkey for Thanksgiving. I love the creaminess and the bite that you get from the Tofutti cream cheese, along with the smokiness from the duck fry and the pungent-sweet garlic. If you can’t find duck fry, beef fry or Facon is a good alternative for this recipe. You and your family are sure to enjoy it!

Another Day, Another Dinner

Were any of you feeling like I felt after all the chagim? Thinking you could never let another morsel of food into your mouth? That you would never cook again? That you would never even look at food again??

Well, it’s a funny thing, how the body works exactly. What felt like a full, overfed, perhaps overstuffed body, was now hungry again, and the other people in the house were asking what you were making for dinner. What? If not as soon as havdalah was finished, then by the next day at the very latest. After you wiped your chin off the floor you realized that life goes on. And cooking and eating resume. But, of course, everyone wants something different than what was made on the...

Warm Up With Rosemary Beef Stew

As the cold weather approaches, our appetites tend toward warm, wintery flavors. A hearty stew for a weeknight or Shabbat dinner, making use of the sweetest of winter root vegetables, can really hit the spot. This stew or goulash is a nourishing and easy “fix-it-and-forget-it” type of recipe, which can be made on your stovetop, in your pressure cooker or, just as easily, in a slow cooker. The combined ingredients in your crockpot, set on low heat, make coming home a joyful, aromatic experience. This recipe takes about 15 minutes of slicing and dicing, and the rest is a breeze as well.
