New Cool Articles about Jewish Food

Food is always on my mind. While it’s been a while since I wrote about my culinary experiments (not for the lack of experimenting, but lack of time to write about them), it doesn’t mean that I stopped cooking, naturally. I have been posting some pics on my Instagram account lamenting my abilities as a photographer….

Cooking with Parshah – Terumah

Terumah is the Parshah that is the first to talk about the construction of the Mishkan – the temporary Temple. The Mishkan is full of wonderful things, whose purpose is not apparent. For this Shabbat, I have decided to make a couple of things that could remind us of the foods connected to the Mishkan and…

Honey Cakes

  Apparently, this year honey cakes are a subject of debate, so I am sharing this Tablet article with you, my readers. I would love to hear what you have to say on this subject. What is your favorite honey cake? Do you even bother to make them and how often? As for me, this…

Coconut Cheesecake

My daughter’s birthday is tomorrow. And this daughter is, already, a better baker than me. Much better in fact. She bakes all the time. For the family, for her friends, for her colleagues. Every time something new. It’s hard to make a cake for her that would be good enough, even though, I know she’ll…

Easy Dessert for Shabbat. Gluten-Free Too

One of the presents I got for Chanukah was this amazing cookbook! Naturally, I needed to try things out right away. Naturally, as well, I had to modify them a little, can’t ever go with the recipe just as is. This is a light resemblance of a traditional Middle Eastern cake. It is such an…

Baking for Sukkot

The sounds of hammers working around my neighborhood are getting more urgent as the last sukkot are being erected. The smells of etrogim permeate the air. The work in the kitchen is no less hectic for many women who are fortunate to have their own homes, but on Sukkot get to work five times as hard providing…

Learning from my Daughters

When does a parent rejoice? When their children surpass their own abilities. As a mother, I know that there is nothing greater than understanding that some things you taught your children have been internalized and  improved upon by them. I have two beautiful grown-up, and very much self-made daughters. Both of them saw me cooking and…

From Home to Home with Food to Dream About

It has been just a few days since I have returned from Israel, but my heart is yearning for it again. So, this post will just show the eateries and foods of Israel that I love. These amazing breads we just stumbled upon at the Old Train Station in Tel-Aviv. We tried these beauties, and…

Sukkot Cakes!

So, I already said that I loved Sukkot. Part of it is the fact that I don’t have a sukkah, so I bake and bring cakes to places where we go to eat – my friends’ sukkot. The cakes have to be parve and light as, usually, they are eaten after a big meal. One of my…

Just another Rosh ha Shana Recipe – Traditional (?) Honey Cake

There is an interesting initiative in the Jewish virtual community – a food-related blog, where users submit their stories with recipes. Mine was published a while ago, but it does remind us all of the High Holidays, and me personally, of my grandmother. So, here it is – My grandma’s lekach – easy to make, sweet…
