Zucchini and Nigella Fritters

Zucchini and Nigella Fritters

This is the time of year to be thinking of others. I have been a bit selfish this month, taking some time away from this blog, working on things that I want (like my new book- more soon), binging on Penny Dreadful and Criminal Minds, 

Kebabs in a Blanket

We’ve got a “Big Boy” tomato plant in my front yard. We built it a nice cage thing with some sticks and twine. It’s super cute and it just sprouted some flowers. I obviously don’t know my gardening lingo. Tas totally fell on it, by 

Matza & Labne Toasts

Matza & Labne Toasts

Sometimes I prefer matza to bread. Keyword there is sometimes. It’s basically just a giant cracker with endless possibilities. So instead of my usual toast snacks I’ll have during the week, when passover comes around the matza is a-playin’. These are two of my go-to snacks. 

Pickled Ramps w. Aleppo & Ramp Butter

Pickled Ramps w. Aleppo & Ramp Butter

    Managed to grab the last bunch of ramps at the farmers market. I’m pretty proud of myself. Especially because people go crazy as soon as they see ramps. It’s the quintessential spring vegetable. I basically skipped to the booth when I saw the poor last

This is my nightmare holiday. I have never been able to hold out through a week of a unleavened Passover diet. If I’m not mistaken, I think 12 hours is my record at this point and that’s just because I slept in late that year. I live

I don’t normally set out to make vegan recipes. And I’m going to lie to you and say that I TOTALLY meant to make this recipe a vegan one… But not really. It’s January, which means all you brave souls are looking for healthy, cleansing

Hummus & Tahina with Soft Boiled Egg & Everything Bagel Spice

The world has gone hummus crazy! Not complaining. Since coming out with Modern Israeli Cooking, I have gotten more questions about hummus than anything else. And the answer will always be YES, hummus is better homemade than any store bought kind… ever. Hummus shouldn’t be

What a lovely night it was. Tas and I invited our friends, and friends of friends, for a great night of tapas and cocktails to raise money for World Food Day through a FEED Supper. We fed them and they fed the world by donating. We 

Churro Tater Tots with Dulce de Leche

Churro Tater Tots with Dulce de Leche

I have spent the last 2+ months away in Toronto. I don’t know if you have ever been outside of your home for an extended period of time, but it’s a surreal. You forget where you live and just inherit your current environment as your home. At 

Everything Bagel Spice Toast

Everything Bagel Spice Toast

I need an intervention. I’m putting everything bagel spice on all the things. In my new book, (enter plug here: hitting shelves October 13th), I’ve made everything challah, everything garlic knots for Food Network… and now this toast. I’ve even sprinkled some on scrambled eggs.
