  • Mediterranean Dips Crudités Bar

    For this year's Mothers Day, I wanted to elevate our family's typical mothers day brunch with this beautiful Mediterranean Crudités Bar. A lot of people are intimated by making their own crudités bar. Sure, there are many components in a nice crudités bar, but all you need to make one is a bunch of vegetables and some killer dips. It also helps to have a variety of types of vegetables with all different colors and shapes. You can totally go with just the classics like ...
  • Salsa De Molcajete

    Ever since I have been cooking my two culinary idols were Guy Fieri and Marcela Valladolid. They are the people that inspired be to get in the kitchen and start cooking. They also taught be to be proud of my cooking.  I learned from them that I should not be embarrassed and that cooking really is cool.  I have been fortunate enough to have met both of my culinary idols. I met Marcela a few years ago on the set of "The Kitchen". It is filmed not far from where I live so my ...
  • Dal Tadka with Cumin Rice

    My love for Indian food goes way back. I have my mom to thank for introducing Indian food to me at such a young age. We have been going to Indian restaurants ever since I was a little kid. I now like making Indian food just as much as I enjoy eating it. I am always experimenting with new Indian dishes in my kitchen. I have made homemade paneer cheese, roti bread, lamb vindaloos, and more. The thing that I love about Indian food is that it has so many dimensions of flavor. Every dish ...
  • Samosa Potato Salad

    This week I have Chanie Apfelbaum, from BusyInBrooklyn.com, guest posting. I have been a fan of Chanie for a long time now. I was following her way before I even started my own blog. Chanie's blog, BusyInBrooklyn, is famous for her modern takes on traditional Jewish recipes and her mouth-watering food photography. I have guest posted on BIB a Honey Apple Galette recipe when Chanie had her baby. You can check that post here.  Alright, so can we talk about how ...
  • 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 ...

  • Roasted Butternut Squash 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. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Cheese Churros

    Cheese + Churros = The Best Mashup Ever!! If you know me, then you know that I LOVE churros! It's one of the most requested recipe of mine at my cooking demos. I have made churros so many times. But I've always stuck my classic recipe. This week I teamed up with Sincerely, Brigitte to make these Cheesy Jalapeño Churros. It's the same churro batter that we all love but the change is that I added Sincerely, Brigitte's Jalapeno Cilantro Cheese grated into the dough. It's the perfect&n...
  • Diego’s Guacamole

    This past week I have been interning at my favorite restaurant, Salsa Metsuyan. It was super cool to see what its like to work in a restaurant kitchen. I spent a lot of time learning from one of their cooks named Diego. He really knows his stuff. He is like a walking encyclopedia of Mexican food.  It was such an amazing opportunity to learn from such a knowledge and friendly person.   As past of my time at the restaurant, I was to come up with a fish taco to add to ...
  • Tomato Bruschetta

    The Summer is just around the corner and that means tomato season has begun! I have already planted my tomato plants. (I will do a post about that soon!) I have also planted all of my herbs, as well. So soon, my tomato plants will start to produce juicy tomatoes and my basil plants will be out of control. What better way to use tomatoes and basil together than in a fresh bruschetta? Bruschetta is a Italian antipasto. It consists of a toasted slice of bread rubbed with ...
  • Huevos Rancheros

    Today is the day that we appreciate mothers around the world.  I am so fortunate to have such an amazing mom! She is so supportive of my whole cooking career . I know you might find this hard to believe, but I was a very picky eater for years so she had to be super patient with me.  Who knew I would end up being a foodie?  I love her to the moon and back! So Mother's Day is a great occasion to serve a festive brunch. This is the best Mexican breakfast for you to make for ...
