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,......

Ethical Jewish Food Movement

Just so happens, that I got a call the other day from a lovely Denver Post reporter about the Jewish ethical food movement. She was looking for a statement from the JCC about why this is important to add to her piece about Rabbi Soloway and his work in Boulder. We talked for… maybe 30-40 minutes. 🙂 We talked about how the ancient Jews agricultural laws guide us today. How we know now that letting land rest between planting helps the output and Judaism guides us in these things. We spoke about......

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)......

Our Engagement Story

How we got engaged: To read the full story, click here We are currently sharing a car as his blew up prior to a camping trip. He needed it yesterday for work so he dropped me off at my job in the morning. He came to pick me up after work. We had talked about maybe working out that afternoon but first we HAD to stop by the garden. It had been a rainy and cool few days and with Yom Kippur, we hadn’t been to the garden in a couple of......

Why American Express Lost Our Business (and United too)

This blog was never a place to just air grievances. And I promise that is not what we have become. As I slip into my new groove, this blog and Kosher, She Eats will get back on track. However, I have found that this is the best way to broadcast a large amount of information. So … here is the letter my husband sent to American Express and why AmEx lost our business. Names and amounts have been redacted to protect all involved. To Whom It May Concern:...

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,......

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 10,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Disable the Dashboard in OS X Mavericks

I downloaded the new OS X Mavericks for my macbook and I love it… except there are a few things that I have been struggling with. One was that the Dashboard launched if I sneezed the wrong way… I would just swipe the wrong way and while I was in the middle of working, I would end up in the dashboard. UGH! It was driving me crazy. So I googled and found this article from IT World: http://www.itworld.com/operating-systems/379426/disable-dashboard-os-x-mavericks...
