The Silver Platter By Daniella Silver and Norene Gilletz

The Silver Platter by Daniella Silver is one of my newest cookbook obsessions! It is jam-packed full of over 150 plus flavorful recipes.  As I looked through it the first time, I felt each and every recipe was something my family and I would love to make and eat.  I literally didn't know which to make first. Each recipe has a reasonable amount of familiar ingredients with a short list of step by step directions to make the dish. Whether you are a novice or an experienced cook, ...

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 ...

Salsa Verde

Happy (Almost) Cinco de Mayo!  Passover has just ended and I'm already getting ready for Cinco de Mayo. It is only 5 days away! I like to celebrate the Mexican National holiday by eating Mexican food on the day and even all week long.  Quick Fact: Cinco de Mayo (Or "The Fifth of May") is celebrated because of the the Mexicans' victory against the French army at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.  I love salsa! It is one of my favorite ...

Mediterranean Beet Dip

People tend to be afraid of cooking with beets. First off you need to roast them which takes time and they stain everything. There is no need to worry anymore! They now sell precooked beats that you can just pop into whatever you are making. This has made cooking with beets so much easier. You can dip pita chips, veggies, or really anything into it for a yummy snack. Click here for an amazing Crudités Bar with this dip. If you love the flavor (and color) of beets but don't ...

Basic French Macarons

Happy Passover! (And Earth Day!) My favorite dessert to make for Passover is French Macarons. They are the delicate cookies with a crunchy exterior and weightless interior. They have a marshmallow-like, chewy texture in your mouth and are filled with everything from cream cheese to chocolate ganache. It has become a favorite in my house after I began making them a few Passovers ago. I also make sure to drop some off to my friend Ben's mom, who loves them! If there...

Berry Pavlova

Why does my birthday have to fall out on Passover?!? Don't get me wrong. I love having a birthday in April. There is almost always good weather on my birthday. But the big downside of it is that every few years my birthday falls out on Passover. I love Passover. It might possibly be my favorite holiday. But that means that I can't have a cake or go out for dinner for my birthday. I happen to not be the biggest fan of cake. But it still is annoying. But as everything in life, I ...

Breakfast Potato Hash

If you are the type of person that eats a bowl of cereal every morning, like me, then you how disappointing the cereals are on Passover. So this year my goal is to make great breakfasts, every morning of the holiday. One dish I am planning on making is this super easy Breakfast Potato Hash. It's full of potatoes, peppers, and onions. Yum! It is fully Kosher for Passover but is also great for all year round!

Spice Crusted Fish Tacos with Pineapple Mango Salsa

It’s officially April. Summer is right around the corner. That means it time for fish tacos! These fish tacos are a great way to welcome in the warm weather. They are super fresh and healthy. It will have you wishing you were on a beach in Mexico sipping on some lemonade or a margarita for the adults!  My favorite way to eat fish is in a Taco! There are so many ways you can make it. You can fry the fish, bake it, sear it, grill it. I especially love this taco ...
