  • Traditional Mosbolletjies

    When researching for interesting bread from around the world I came across this South African bread called Mosbolletjie.  I then played round in the kitchen, developing my own version of the recipe, and after a single bite, I fell in love with this delicious bread. The best way to describe mosbolletjies is that it’s a sweet brioche, traditionally made with fermented grape juice and flavored with aniseed. There is just nothing on earth like a torn piece of mosbolletjie ...
  • Shakshuka

    When I talk about my new favorite dish, Shakshuka, people usually give me a strange look…like I’ve sneezed, or something. That look on their faces makes me excited because it means they have no idea what Shakshuka is and I immediately make it my job to teach them. So, if you have never heard of Shakshuka, I am thrilled to teach you about it. Recently Shakshuka has become one of my favorite dishes that is a simple while incredibly flavorful, go-to meal that works for breakfast, lunch, or ...
  • Apple Tart Squares with Honey Glaze

    Today I am sharing my recipe for these delicious Apple Tart Squares with Honey Glaze that really highlights the beauty of this season's bounty of apples with the signature crunch from puff pastry dough. What isn't there to love about puff pastry dough?! First off, the crunch of perfectly baked puff pastry dough makes for a uniquely scrumptious bite and the fact that it can always be stored in your freezer means you are always ready to whip up a dessert for any occasion. Once defrost...
  • Punjabi Samosas with Mint Chutney

    During the summer I like to experiment in the kitchen with more involved recipes than I would typically make during the school year. Today I made these beautifully delicious Punjabi Samosas with Mint Chutney! Samosas are deep fried, cone shaped dumplings that are traditionally filled with a mixture of potatoes or meat. They also happen to be seriously delicious! My personal favorite version of the Samosa is one from Punjab, a state in the Northern part of India. Their version of this ...
  • Blueberry Cardamom Hand Pies

    A few weeks ago we had a fun day in Connnecticut where we went blueberry picking and out to dinner for delicious kosher Indian food for with Naomi Nachman's family.  It was a jam packed and super fun day catching up and , of course, talking a lot about food! Both the blueberry picking and the Indian food are what inspired to make this out of the box dessert...Blueberry Cardamom Hand Pies.  I mean, can a Southern classic with an Indian twist be any more on brand for me?!?&nb...
  • Compound Butter Breakfast Bar

    This week I have teamed up with Breakstone's butter to make your Passover breakfast even better!  In general, Passover food gets a really bad reputation. You know, eating just isn't as fun without everyone's favorite bread and legumes. I know I really miss them throughout the holiday. Now that I come to think of it, I am very emotionally invested in my carbs. You know what they say thought, “A cookie a day keeps the doctor away.” I’m pretty sure that's how it goes. Even though we ...
  • Whipped Ricotta Toast with Berries

    Your breakfast is about to get upgraded! Every morning the absolute first thing on my mind in breakfast. I pop out of bed and head straight to the kitchen to eat. Nothing can stop me from of eating my breakfast. The 7 hours I get of sleep every day is the longest I go without eating. What can I say? I'm a foodie! So breakfast is not an option for me but a necessity. On typical school days, I just have cereal because who has time? But I always welcome the chance when I get to make a fancier ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 and super ...
  • 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 Melinda ...
  • 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 ...
  • Honey Apple Scones

    So the chagim are right around the corner which means we will all be cooking up a storm in our kitchens, preparing delicious lunches and dinners. But I feel like we don’t pay attention much to our breakfast. The past Rosh Hashanahs I just have honey cake in the morning with a bowl of cereal. So I decided to step it up with my Honey Apple Scones. They are filled with honey and diced apple. It’s the perfect breakfast dish for the Chagim!
