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)......

Kosher Cheeses

With all these recent (ok two…) dairy recipes we have been trying, I got to thinking about Kosher cheeses. Kosher Hubby and I don’t use cholov yisroel cheese (if that is Greek to you, that’s ok, I’ll explain below) but we try to steer clear of animal rennet. So let’s talk cheese. What makes cheese Kosher? Ok. So first and foremost… if the animal that makes the cheese is Kosh… then so is it’s milk. However, there are two types of cheeses… soft and hard. Soft cheese (cream cheese, cottage cheese, even......

Winter Soup

Well. It’s cold. No doubt about that. So today, Hubby and I decided to make a yummy minestrone soup. Actually what happened was, Hubby wanted to make a butternut squash gratin (yes, recipe coming) and I remembered a recent recipe from Real Simple for a minestrone soup with butternut squash. Perfect pair for dinner! Please forgive the lack of pictures… the Kosher, She Eats kitchen was NOT clean enough to get any good pics. I promise we will have some new ones for you the next time we make this! Of course,......

Cauliflower Tabouli

For our first culinary adventure of our married life, we decided to make Cauliflower Tabouli during Passover. It was delish, tasted like the real thing and much healthier for us!

Here’s how to do it: Ingredients: Full head of cauliflower One bunch of parsley Half of a cucumber One tomato Zest from half of one lemon Olive oil Salt Pepper Zatar to taste (optional but recommended) Preparation: Break apart the cauliflower, removing the greens and breaking the......
