Salsa Metsuyan

Teaneck needed a great kosher Mexican joint and we finally have one! When I heard that a Kosher Mexican joint was opening in Teaneck, I was super excited. I love Mexican food and my only way of eating it was to make it. Now don't get me wrong! I love making Mexican food at home, but its fun to try new dishes at a restaurant.  So shortly after it opened we went to give it a try. When we walked in the smell and ambiance of the restaurant alone ...

Jalapeño Cheese Crusted Soft Pretzel

My favorite after school snack is a hot, soft pretzel. It is my favorite way to start my evening. I usually just heat up the frozen ones in the toaster. But occasionally, I like to make some pretzels from scratch. They taste much better when you make them yourself! They are also super fun to make.  My favorite way to top off my pretzels is with some Sincerely, Brigitte Jalapeno Cilantro Cheese grated on top.  It really elevates your normal soft pretzel to a fun ...

Gluten Free Hamantashen

A super yummy, gluten free Hamantaschen recipe! In my house, making Hamantaschen is an activity that includes the whole family. It is one my brother's favorite time to be in the kitchen! Every Purim we make Regular Hamantaschen and Gluten Free Hamantaschen for my mom. (By the way, my mom isn't gluten free by choice. I know it's trendy now to be gluten free. But I can assure you my mom definitely doesn't think so!) You can fill these with whatever you like. That's ...

The New Yiddish Kitchen By Simone Miller and Jennifer Robins

Around the time I decided to start my "People I Love" section on my blog, I also decided that I would love to start doing cookbook reveiws and giveways more often and hopefully monthly! I really love promoting other awesome foodies out there that love cooking and food as much as I do! So I started to look around online to see what were the cool new kosher cookbooks that were coming out. Right in the top ten was The New Yiddish Kitchen by Simone Miller and Jennifer Robins. After ...

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.

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 ...

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, ...
