Eating Jewish: Espinacas con Garbanzos (Spinach and Chickpeas)

Hamantaschen are the signature food of Purim, and I definitely look forward to this time of year knowing that I’ll get to eat my fill of those delicious cookies.

Cookie cleavage: How much is too much?

I took these pictures last Purim to illustrate a little-discussed aspect of the aspect of hamantashen baking: Cookie cleavage.

Eating Jewish: The Jewish story of chocolate

Valentine's Day is not a Jewish holiday. These days it's a secular holiday associated with flowers, candy hearts, and, best of all, chocolate.

Eating Jewish: Recipes for a meaningful Tu B'Shvat

It may seem a little contradictory to celebrate the New Year for trees in North America during the winter, and yet it offers a reminder of the renewal that will soon come with spring (although it may seem far away!).

Eating Jewish: Aloo Gobi Latkes

It’s that time of year again when food blogs and websites are filled with recipes for latkes and other fried delicacies for Hanukkah, and kitchens (along with the cooks!) begin to smell of all things deep fried. As my thoughts turned to the latkes I was going to make for Eating Jewish, I knew I wanted to do something different.

Eating Jewish: Bialys

I have an affinity for baked goods, both savory and sweet, that runs deep.

The Hadassah Everyday Cookbook: A great addition to your cookbook collection

Due to the proliferation of food blogs and cooking websites with thousands of recipes at our fingertips, some folks question the need for cookbooks at all. I am not one of them.

Eating Jewish: Savory cabbage strudel

As far as underrated vegetables go, cabbage is near the top of the list. People generally don't rhapsodize over cabbage like they do for fresh sweet corn or a juicy red tomato.
