Smores Party Bar

Smores Bar!!!! Soo yummy! What is more fun than roasting marshmallows and making smores on a freezing cold night? I have so many memories of making smores in my fireplace through my childhood.  That is why they are one of my favorite treats!  This Smores Party bar is a great idea if you are having people over for a party and you want to do something little different. It's also great just for your "family fun night"! It's a yummy and interactive dessert for any ...

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

If you know me, then you know that I love anything and everything that is peanut butter. If it has peanuts or peanut butter in it, I am into it. I especially love peanut butter cookies. I am a cookie fanatic and I can't decide if i enjoy making them or eating them more. I actually really enjoy making cookies by hand, with a wooden spoon. One Yom Tov, I was in the mood for cookies but couldn't make them because I couldn't use the electric hand mixer. But I wasn't gonna let that stop ...

Kosher by Design Brings It Home by Susie Fishbein

Today is the Virtual Book Party for Susie Fishbein's new cookbook, "Kosher By Design Brings it Home"! I am taking part in this day along with many other food bloggers. There is even a raffle that you can all enter to win over $1000 in prizes!  I have grown up eating recipes out from Susie's cookbooks. My family owns and loves all of her books. My all time favorite meat dish for Shabbos lunch is her recipe "Asian Steak Salad" out of Kosher by Design.  That is why I am so excited ...

Pizza Rolls

This is what happened when pizza met cinnamon rolls and it's kind of awesome! I teamed up with Les Petites Fermieres to bring you these awesome Pizza Rolls. They are a super easy and great dinner to make on a school night. They are so much fun to eat! Also you can customize these however you like. You can add in all of your favorite pizza toppings and make it yours! ` These Pizza Rolls are a cross between a cinnamon roll and pizza. Which are two things that I LOVE! I also love these ...

Corn Flake Crusted Chicken Fingers

Yeah, thats right. Fried Chicken! I am a huge fan of anything fried. Whether it's donuts, chicken, or even candy bars, I'm totally down with it! It definitely helps to have the metabolism of a 13 year old boy! I can eat all the fried food I want and I won't even gain a pound. This is a great alternative to your usual bread crumb crusted fried chicken. The corn flakes add a lot more crunch and it tastes amazing. It tastes even better dipped into the spicy mayo. I think it is ...

Peanut Butter Football Cookies

I am always looking for quick and easy desserts. The kind that are great "go to's" for the last minute invite to someone's house for Shabbos. These cookies are the definition of a yummy, quick dessert. Also, all of the ingredients are in everybody's pantry. So if you need a last minute dessert to bring to a Super Bowl party these cookies are a great idea! I decided to jazz up the typical peanut butter cookie for the Super Bowl. It looks really impressive if you bring it to a party, ...

Taco Bowl Party Bar

So the Super Bowl…...I am so excited! I mean really excited! But not for actually watching the game.  As usual I'm not really sure what teams are playing, but I am super excited since I love the food at Super Bowl parties. I am always the guy at the party eating the food while everyone is watching the game. This is a great meal for your Super Bowl Party. When I think of a party with food I always think about Mexican food. It is just so fun and full of flavor! This recipe ...

Split Pea Soup

There is nothing like having a hot, "stick to the bone" soup after shoveling the snow in the freezing cold wind. This Split Pea soup is exactly that. Also you probably have most of the ingredients in your house so you won't have to run out in the snow to get them. ] As you can probably tell, this soup has hotdogs in it. My family just loves having them in the soup. It also makes the soup ever more filling and warming. If you don't like hotdogs then you can leave it out. But they are ...

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. ...

Homemade Artisan Bread with Rosemary Roasted Garlic

I know making your own bread might sound scary but trust me this is the easiest bread you will ever make. This crusty, fluffy, professional looking bread only uses four ingredients. Ya, thats right only FOUR! Just flour, salt, yeast, and water. There is no baking skills needed at all. You don't even need to knead the dough. Its that simple. Look at that Roasted Garlic!! Along with the bread I love to slather on some roasted garlic on top of my slice of bread. The creamy, ...

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 ...
