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 ...

Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies

I love meringues! There is just something about them that makes my sweet tooth go crazy. I have many memories of  my mom making meringues for Shabbos. She used the method of heating the oven to 400 then leaving the meringues in the oven over night with the oven off. It made them like little light airy clouds. I use a different cooking method. But both work fine.  

Hotdog Hungarian Goulash

I have so many memories of sitting at the Friday night table eating a big bowl of my dad's Hotdog Hungarian Goulash. As a little kid I only ate the hotdogs and potatoes. Every time I ate it there would always be a little "gush", as I called it, left at the bottom of my bowl.   This recipe has been passed down in my family for many years. The recipe was my great grandfather's, who I am named after. He passed it down to my grandmother. Who then passed down to ...

Egg Curry

I love Indian food! Most people have only had kosher indian the few Indian restaurants there are that are kosher. Well I love it so much that I make it at home.  To me there is nothing like a homemade, spicy curry. Just the smell makes my mouth water.  I learned a lot of indian cooking from my Indian neighbors. I live on a corner of a block. All the kids who live on my side of the block are all friends. We always play outside on each others yards together. ...

Deep Fried Chocolate Empanadas

It's finally Chanukah! That means its time for fried food all week long! I especial love all the fried desserts. Last year I made Churros on Table for Two with Naomi Nachman on the Nachum Segal Network, which originate from Mexico. They were super yummy! This year I decided to do a fried dessert that originates from Portugal, Spain.  In this recipe I use California Gourmet Chocolate Chips. They are my favorite brand of quality chocolate chips. They are 45%-cocoa, ...

General Tso’s Chicken

Chanukkah is only a week away and that means it's time to begin planning what food you want to make during the holiday! It is a great time to be adventurous by making new dishes. This Chanukah try my General Tso's Chicken recipe! It tastes just like what you get in the Chinese takeout box, but even better. Unlike what you get from the restaurants my recipe has peanut powder in it. I feel it ads a great nutty flavor to the chicken. It makes it even yummier!     ...

My Fun Week at KFBC, KFest, and KFeast!

Wow! What a great week I just had. I can't believe it's already over. I was lucky enough to be able to attend The Kosher Food Bloggers Conference, Kosher Feast, and KosherFest!

I have been following Melinda Strauss, the organizer of the conference, on Instagram for a while now. When I ...
