In Good Spirits for Pesach

Pesach comes with its many traditional dishes that most of us usually eat only during this holiday. However, most wines and spirits are enjoyed throughout the year with a few exceptions for this holiday such as Scotch, bourbon and beer, as these are not kosher for Pesach.

Kosher Dominates at Brisket King of NYC Competition

In an unprecedented move in the kosher culinary world, a real true kosher-keeping chef has left the Brisket King NYC competition with the crown. Texas born and current Riverdalian Ari White of Got Cholent/Wandering Que (and soon to be released Red Heifer Specialty Kosher Meats) headquartered in Yonkers walked away

Pepper Steak Again?

Have we ever talked about pepper steak? How is it possible after all this time that I never mentioned it? It’s such a great dinner—succulent pieces of steak, sautéed peppers and onions, over a bed of rice (brown or white, your choice!) I guess I haven’t made it in a while because the last time I did, the kids accused me of

Endlessly Adaptable, Utterly Reliable, Absolutely Delicious Hamantashen

My mom’s recipe for hamantashen, developed in California and then adapted in myriad ways by five daughters and daughters-in-law, is the best recipe any of us have ever used or eaten. It’s soft-baked, it’s incredible and best of all, it’s impossible to mess up. This is one of those recipes that’s endlessly adaptable and

Gluten-Free Lemon-Almandine Purim Hamantashen

I used to use a similar version of this dough in my butter cookie recipe while I was the gluten-free product developer at a chain of restaurants in Arizona. The butter cookies were the bakery’s top-selling gluten-free item. People could not get enough of the buttery shortbread cookie with beautiful lemon and marzipan flavors from

Purim–Did You Just Say ‘Different Wines’?

With Purim approaching, we are looking for different, new wines to enjoy over the holiday. Different sure, but also good and interesting, of course. Different in the sense of interesting and diverse as some exciting kosher wines from all over the world have been released recently.


A Flavorful Night to Benefit EMUNAH

It is not often that one walks into a food event and thinks everything she tastes is absolutely amazing—without a single gripe about anything. That’s exactly the kind of reception Elizabeth Kurtz generated with her food demonstration, which was hosted at the home of White Plains resident Jamie Feit to support

Using Up Shabbat Leftovers

So it’s a Monday night, and I really shouldn’t have to cook because there is leftover sliced corned beef, brown rice with onions, roasted butternut squash, chicken soup and a kale salad. Sounds like a delicious meal, no? No. I guarantee you that if I put this delicious meal on the table I will get a raised eyebrow, a flared

Meatless Thursdays Is a Thing

Growing up, Thursday night dinner was always macaroni and cheese. It was a staple that could be counted on to please everyone and I looked forward to it as a favorite meal. I’m not talking about Wacky Mac, and I’m not talking about melting a slice of cheese over some noodles. I didn’t know it at the time, but a bechamel sauce
