The natural sweetness of the Acorn squash adds another level of flavor to this delicious ratatouille. Quarter the squash and serve it as a side dish or serve the ratatouille in half a squash as a main dish.
Shallots, cucumbers and dill complement the mild flavor of the flounder. This is an easy, light and delicious recipe that is perfect for lunch or dinner. Enjoy!
I feel so pleased that Bakar Kosher Meats wanted to partner with me. They sent me two beautiful roasts. One I made for Shabbat dinner and one I made for a video. Both times the meat was delicious! The herb crust I mixed together creates a beautiful crust over the […]

This is a mouth watering recipe that is relatively simple to prepare except for cleaning the ducks. Major TIME saving hint: Get pre-roasted unseasoned ducks from your butcher and then braise them in the sauce. Prep time for cleaning ducks-endless. Ask the butcher to at least singe them for you […]
My Mother made chremsels for Passover every year that I can remember. When my husband and I started taking our family away for Passover, she used to freeze a few for me to eat when we got back. My Mother hates to cook; but for some reason, this was a […]
