White Chocolate Indian Bark

Yay! It is finally winter vacation! After my first semester of high school, it is nice to have a break. It has surely been a challenge to balance my school work and my "Chef Eitan Work", as I call it. I get home later and have more work than before, so I've had to be even more efficient with my time. I've learned to embrace my inner workaholic and use all the time that I can to do work. I really love what I do. Over vacation, I really like to experiment in the kitchen. I ...

Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

If you are looking for me right now, you can find me in my kitchen obsessing over this plate of Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce. The flavor of these juicy chicken kebabs dipped into the rich peanut sauce is the perfect bite. These have always been something that I've wanted to try. I've just never gotten to making them, until today! I know what you're thinking! But like do you even know me? I get extremely excited about food 24/7. I don't believe there is a wrong time to eat ...

Tomato Spinach Scrambled Eggs

Ok, let's talk about scrambled eggs. While it may seem like the simplest recipe to make, there is actually a special technique to the perfect scrambled eggs. I vividly remember learning to make the perfect scrambled eggs at the culinary course I took at ICC, two summers ago. We learned that you have to continuously mix the eggs, to prevent them from browning. Oh boy! If your scrambled eggs had a dot of browned egg, the chef would throw it away and you had to start over ...

Over-The-Top Peanut Butter Chocolate Milkshake

Happy New Years! It is officially 2017 and I'm starting off the year with a bang! I have decided that this year I will start eating healthy. Today January 1, 2017, I am starting a Raw Vegan Cleanse. Only raw vegetables for me, no meat, no packages foods--Ok scratch that! I am starting this year off, the right way, with a huge peanut butter and chocolate milkshake made of  ice cream, peanut butter cups, crushed Butterfingers, chocolate sauce, and more. This totally decadent over the ...

Grape Juice Jelly Donuts

I am super excited to announce that Manischewitz has just released on of the videos that I shot with them. They asked me to make a recipe using their Chanukah Donut Mix and Welch's Grape Juice for Chanukah. I figured out, using a little bit of my food science knowledge, how to turn the grape juice into a jelly, to fill the donuts, without using pectin. Because I mean, does anyone really have pectin in their pantry? I definitely don't! You can watch the video, (below) to ...

Baby Lamb Chops with Minty Chimichurri Sauce

This week I am trying something new, here on CookWithChefEitan.com! I have actually never had lamb chops before. I was super excited to try them when I got them from Grow and Behold! We all know that mint goes really well with lamb so I figured, for my first time I had to go with a nice Minty Chimichuri Sauce. If you have also never tried them before, I definitely suggest buying some and topping them with the sauce!  I have been so looking forward to this ...

Chanukah Sugar Cookies with Buttercream Frosting

The weather is starting to get chilly which means Chanukah is around the corner! Besides the festive feel of the days, my favorite part of the holiday, as with most, is the special foods we make this time of the year.  I love consecutive days of yummy rich dairy meals of latkes with sour cream, doughnuts with cream filling, and for my family yummy butter cookies made with Breakstone’s Butter.   Cookies made with Breakstone’s Butter have a smoother texture than those made ...

French Toast Dippers with Maple Yogurt

  Lets talk about breakfast. I love breakfast! I don't discriminate when it comes to the first meal of the day wether it is just a bowl of cereal, a nice potato hash, or french toast. I have actually posted a bunch of my favorite breakfast recipes here on CookWithChefEitan.com. I've done a Breakfast Potato Hash, Huevos Rancheros, and my Honey Appel Scones. Today I am adding another favorite of mine. These French Toast Dippers are crunchy on the outside ...

Roasted Butternut Sqaush Quinoa Salad

Thanksgiving is just four days away and I can't wait! I look forward every year to Thanksgiving. It's a time when both of the sides of my family get together. Every year, my brother yoni, my cousin Danny, and I sit in my uncles living room watching the Macy's day parade. We even celebrate an early Chanuka while the whole family is already together and exchange gifts. Its just a fun day full of family and food! This year I will be bringing this Roasted Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad. ...
