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. ...

Pumpkin Spice Buns

  Today is my Blogaversary! That mean that I have been weekly food blogging, here on CookWithChefEitan.com, for a full year! Also known as 52 weeks! Which mean 52 posts with recipes, articles, and photography all done by me. Who thought when I started that a 14 year old would be able to run a weekly food blog while also juggling a dual curriculum school? Everyone I knew thought I was crazy. But a year later I have showed them all that I could do it! I have to thank again ...

Elevated Grill Cheese

I get asked a lot if my brother, Yoni, is also interested in cooking. Unfortunately, he's not but he is my official recipe taster. That doesn't mean he can't whip up some meals of his own. He can make a mean scrambled eggs and his specialty is grilled cheese.  I teamed up with Natural and Kosher to elevate Yoni's typical grilled cheese with their new flavored and sliced muenster cheeses. The new flavors are Tomato Olive, Chipotle, and Garlic Basil. Don't they ...

BuzzDine (Giveaway!)

This week, I'm sharing with you all a really cool app called BuzzDine! Will Samuels, the founder of BuzzDine, felt there was something lacking from how people share their photos of food when they eat out. He says "...there isn't one particular place where people seem to always post their food pics. Some post to Snapchat, some to Instagram, and lots just have them sitting in their photo library. So what's the issue?" He created BuzzDine as a platform that allows users see ...

Chocolate Chip Monkey Bread

Happy Birthday Yoni! It is my brother, Yoni's, birthday in just 5 days, on November 4th! I teamed up with California Gourmet to make the ultimate dessert for Yoni's birthday. My brother yoni is always full of energy, and I mean always. So my parents and I joke that he's like a monkey. So instead of a cake I made a Chocolate Chip Monkey Bread. I thought that i'd introduce you all to him with a short Q&A! Eitan: What your favorite food to eat? Yoni: I love cinnabons...

Pico de Gallo Avocado Toast

This will totally up your picnic game! I don't like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I know, crazy! Basically, I love peanut butter. I love bread. And I like jelly. Just not together. Something about the three together, just isn't for me. So that leaves me with a challenge every time I need to bring a portable lunch anywhere. I can totally just go with the easy bagel and cream cheese but sometimes I like a change. Every Succot all the Modern Orthodox Jews to ...
