Wow, it has been a long time since I posted anything! We just bought and moved into our first home so it’s been an incredibly hectic few months. I promise I’ll post pictures of the new place when it’s less of a disaster zone 🙂 This is a little late for Rosh Hashana (Jewish New […]
Cabbage is a delicious and incredibly cheap super food. It’s rich in vitamins K and C, antioxidants, and there have been many research studies about the cancer prevention and even treatment properties of cabbage. Purple (also referred to as red) cabbage has the highest nutritional value, plus I think it tastes the best. And it’s […]
For the Super Bowl this year, AK really wanted a hot dog bar. We made some of the usual hot dog toppings (caramelized onions, pickled cabbage), but I was at Shoppers and red peppers were on sale 4 for $5, which is amazingly cheap at least in my area, so I wanted to do some […]
My corn kugel is one of my most popular recipes, and a go-to side dish for almost any meal (thank you BL for introducing me to it!). While I love the sweetness of this kugel, I recently made delicious savory pumpkin muffins, and decided I’d try a savory version of corn kugel too. If possible, […]

I’m not a huge fan of the texture of peas, so I decided to use edamame instead (not so […]
**This post is part of a month-long series as I participate in the Salad as a Meal Challenge. There are so many different ways to eat vegetables outside of the salad bowl–from soups to spreads. This is one of my favorite veggie-based spreads: Babaganoush. I grew up eating baba that was drowned in mayonnaise, so pretty […]
**This post is part of a month-long series as I participate in the Salad as a Meal Challenge. People complain to me all the time that salad doesn’t work as a meal. To some extent I agree–if you take a narrow view of salad as just lettuce, tomatoes and such. But there are so many […]
I’ve made umpteen batches of cranberry pumpkin muffins, but recently I was in the mood for a savory rather than sweet muffin.
One of the strongest and fondest memories I have of summers growing up is my mom’s strawberry rhubarb soup. She left it chunky so the rhubarb was soft and stringy, the strawberries bursting with flavor. On the hottest of summer days, one could always count on this refreshing dish. This past week has been pretty […]
