Hearty Kale and Bean Vegetable Soup

We can all use some comforting superfood in our lives. This soup takes the cake for feeling like you’re eating a hug. It’s hot and hearty, packed with flavor and nutrients for a healthy pick-me-up. As soon as you make it once, you’ll know what I mean.  


Chunky Vegetable Barley Soup

Baby it’s cold outside, and this is one of my favorite soup recipes. I like to serve this with toasted garlic bread, a fresh baguette or No-Knead Bread with a slather of butter. This vegetable soup recipe is really versatile. You can use whatever vegetables are in season or those […]


Cauliflower Fried Rice

This is a low-carb option for those who want all the flavor of Chinese fried rice but none of the guilt. I’m generally not one to make “MOCK” anything, but this trend was on my bucket list and it was requested for a private cooking class.  Time to check that […]


Better than Deli Coleslaw

Yes. Better than takeout coleslaw. There I said it. I guarantee once you try this, you’ll never go back to store bought. I know it’s very unconventional, and yes, I have mixing bowls, but… I make my coleslaw in a ziploc bag. In case you’re going to ask if that’s a […]


Honey Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Hungarian Cabbage Noodles

Can’t Mess Up Oven Baked Farfel

Farfel. Ferfel. Farfalle. However you spell it, you’ll never mess it up or accidentally leave it on the flame too long again. Speaking for a … friend of course. Babi used to make it the “right” way, on the stove, but I’m all about easy street and minimal dish washing, […]


No Fail Latke

You don’t have to celebrate Chanukah to appreciate the crispy circle of joy that is a latke (aka superb potato pancake). Every family has a strong opinion on how latkes should be made. Some swear by flat, stringy and crispy, while others prefer them thick with a substantial middle chew. […]
