2022-12-18T14:16:19-05:00December 18th, 2022|Categories: Hanukkah, Side Dishes, Vegetables, Vegetarian|

There are so many variations of potato latkes--zucchini, carrot, beet, sweet potato, celery root--just to name a few. But my favorite latkes are the classic potato latkes.  I call my recipe the 1-2-3-4 latke recipe. The numbers make it easy to remember the amounts of each ingredient. These are the BEST EVER LATKES--crisp on the [...]

Vegetarian Lasagna

2022-07-29T09:17:36-04:00July 29th, 2022|Categories: Food Columns, Pasta, Rice, Grains, Vegetarian|

My recipe for lasagna is vegetarian. I use spinach and mushrooms and part skim ricotta and mozzarella to make a lighter, healthier dish. With a rather lengthy list of ingredients and several components to the instructions, this is not a quick and easy recipe. Yet, no intricate techniques are required, and there is nothing inherently [...]

Shakshouka

Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable Stacks

I love ratatouille, a classic vegetable stew hailing from the Provencal region of southern France near the Mediterranean Sea. To make these colorful and healthy veggie stacks, I used many of the seasonal vegetables and flavorings you would find in a ratatouille—eggplant, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and onions, infused with olive oil and fragrant with garlic [...]

Here’s another tasty dairy option for Shavuot. Ricotta gnocchi are the faster, easier, and, some would say, tastier counterpart to potato gnocchi. If you’ve avoided making pasta or gnocchi recipes because of elaborate instructions and techniques, you’re in for a treat with this recipe, which will give you the satisfaction of making a home made [...]

Shavuot is also known as the Jewish Festival of Weeks and it commemorates the anniversary of the giving of the Torah. There are many traditions associated with this lovely holiday such as reading The Book of Ruth [...]
