The Beauty of Advance Prep for Weeknight Dinners

So I had the opportunity to have a number of conversations about dinner this week. (No, I wasn’t talking to myself, although that was a good guess.) I spoke with young people, old people, people with kids, people with no kids, working people and stay-at-home people. (And I guess “people” is a euphemism for women.) The story

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Brrr! I know it’s the end of January and it shouldn’t be a big surprise, but what the heck happened to the weather? The mild November and December months truly gave me a false sense of security that maybe the winter would pass us by this year. I was so hopeful. Ah, well. As I get older, I realize I’m just going to have to

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

The one-day event, orchestrated by part-time Teaneck resident and Pitopia’s owner, Kevin Cohnen, drew people from near and far to

Everything Chicken

Things are really heating up around this time of year, and I’m not just talking about the weather! Teachers are trying to finish up units of work, getting tests in, with due dates for papers and assignments quickly approaching. Some of us are planning long-awaited vacation getaways, while athletic teams are heading into the heart

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? Generally, it is bought on impulse as it lies on the counter while they are checking out. Believe it or not, beef jerky is a $1.5 billion dollar industry in the United States. It looks like a fun

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),
