  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Laham Abjeen Hamantaschen

    For the past month I have been trying to come up with a new Hamantaschen recipe that no one has done yet. Easier said than done! The kosher bloggers community has come up with every possible Hamantaschen recipe you could possibly think of. So I really had to put on my thinking cap to come up with these Laham Abjeen Hamantaschen.  There are so many awesome Hamantaschen recipes on Kitchen Tested and Kosher in The Kitch!  Laham Abjeen have always been one of my ...
  • Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

    These Quinoa Stuffed Peppers are a colorful, healthy but yummy food for the freezing days of winter. During the cold months of the year I really miss the colorful fresh fruits and vegetables of the summer. These quinoa stuff peppers, which are my favorite way to eat quinoa,  are a bright and satisfying addition to any weeknight dinner or Shabbos meal.     Quinoa was first domesticated around 4,000 years ago by the Incan people who lived in the Andes Mountains. ...
  • Deep Fried Garlic Basil Cheese Sticks

    I love cheese sticks. There is nothing like a hot, gooey cheese stick slathered with tangy tomato sauce!  Deep Fried Cheese Sticks are my favorite side to get at a good dairy restaurant or pizza shop. As usual I wanted to enjoy this popular appetizer at home. So I got in the kitchen and figured out how make them! Cheese Sticks are usually made with mozzarella which is yummy but nothing special. Using Sincerely, Brigitte's Garlic Basil Cheese Sticks in place of the usual ...
