Yummy Salmon Chowder

I found this Salmon Chowder recipe online at Woman’s Day and made it last night for the family. My husband was over the moon about it! He’s requested that it hit our regular rotation and I think he went back for thirds. At different points in our lives, we each did not keep strict kashrut and both quite enjoyed clam chowder. This recaptures a bit of that yummy decadent Northeast flavor. The recipe I used felt a bit unfinished so here is my updated version.   Creamy Salmon Chowder SERVES: 4 INGREDIENTS 1......

Homemade Turkey Meatballs For Baby

Our food journey has been really challenging with the nugget. He’s struggled with prolonged vomiting and now has some trauma around eating. Except carbs. He loves his carbs. This summer he was pounding yogurt and milk and eating his weight in puffs, crackers, and all manner of bread products. He was refusing anything else I offered him in the fruit and veg families, with the notable exception of bananas… the great binder of the fruit family. I think you know where this is going… We had so many mornings of horrible crying......

Homemade Beans & Rice

My little guy is about as brand loyal as one year olds get! When it comes to food, he’s pretty much obsessed with the Plum Organics pouches. And of these pouches, his absolute favorite is the Plum World Baby Mexico pouch. The ingredients are beans and rice with sweet corn, red bell pepper, cilantro and lime. Pretty fancy for baby food, eh? Well at $1.30+ per pouch I thought, maybe I can make a close approximation for the nugget for less per serving. I found these recipes online and thought I could......

Homemade Prune Filling

It is will great disgrace that I realize I haven’t blogged in a year. But it’s been a rough year. We know it’s been at least a Jewish calendar year since my last post was about Hamentaschen. I just wanted to share again, the amazing Prune Butter recipe I found last year from Tori Avey. You can find her Lekvar Plum Butter recipe in full, with stunning pictures, here. This year, I felt comfortable enough with the consistency and idea of the recipe to freehand it a bit. I also did not......

Great Hamentaschen Bake Off of 2014

I know this post is late. I know! But how can you have a Great Hamentaschen Bake Off before Purim! And then I was a slacker. I admit it. A friend of mine and I decided to have a bake off. My recipe can be found here – We Put The Mon in Hamentaschen. This year I made my own plum filling from a recipe I found at The Shiksa In The Kitchen. Here is her recipe. I will give you Megan’s recipes for the dough and the insides as well as......

Garlic Scape and Salmon Frittata

This is a summer favorite in the Kosher, She Eats kitchen. We grow our own garlic scapes and jalapeños and Kosher Hubby cold smokes his own salmon. (Yes, I know… overachievers.) One Sunday morning we decided to forgo our usual cheesey eggs (another KSE kitchen invention) and make frittatas with whatever was in our fridge. I will share the ‘recipe’ and preparation instructions below but first some ideas and explanations. What are garlic scapes? There are two main varieties of garlics and many sub-varieties. These two main varieties are hard-neck and soft-neck.......

Review: Mayim’s Rainbow Cabbage Salad with Tahini-Lemon Dressing

As you read in this blog – Review: Mayim’s Vegan Table – Kosher Hubby and I each selected a recipe we wanted to make out of Mayim’s new cookbook to review. This is the one Kosher Hubby chose. He wanted something without pasta, bread, potatoes, etc. We just don’t have those items in our diet, or at least very often. He chose this because he enjoys cabbage salad and thought it would be a great addition to our dinner. If you want to see my choice, it is here – Review: Mayim’s......

Review: Mayim’s Shepherd’s Pie

As you read in this blog – Review: Mayim’s Vegan Table – Kosher Hubby and I each selected a recipe we wanted to make out of Mayim’s new cookbook to review. This is the one I chose. I got really excited because for a long time, I thought Shepherd’s Pie would probably be a delicious dish but it was never Kosher (since most include ground beef and dairy). Mayim’s recipe offered me the opportunity to try something I couldn’t before. She says it serves four. It lasted more than a week in......

Review: Mayim’s Vegan Table

I recently received a copy (see my disclosure at the bottom) of Mayim Bialik’s new cookbook – Mayim’s Vegan Table. I spent a few days going through the cookbook, looking at her recipes, reading the intro, and looking at the pictures. Overall, it’s a very well written, interesting cookbook. Not too large or hefty with a nice selection of options in each category. One thing I noticed off the bat was that most of the recipes seemed rather complicated with quite a few ingredients and steps. However, once I tried a few,......

BR: Sponge Cake For Passover

This is the first in a new series we are calling Baboushka’s Recipes (BR for short). Baboushka, or ба́бушка in Russian, means grandmother. In this series we will explore and save the recipes our grandparents brought with them or inherited from their parents. Kosher Hubby’s family is from Ukraine and Belarus and my family is from Poland, Ukraine, and Germany… so Baboushka seemed pretty appropriate. Okay! Here we go, our first vintage recipe. This is my great-grandmother’s Passover sponge cake recipe. I dug it out today (yes, Sunday, the day before Erev Pesach)......
