Adam and I have argued over the years about the eternal question, “what is kugel”? My first exposure to kugel was a savory dish with broccoli and potato. He insisted that when people think of kugel they imagine sweet egg noodles and raisins. After doing some research we decided in the end to compromise and […]

Whether you call it pot roast, brisket, or stracoto you’re really talking about the same thing. It’s a hunk of beef that is from a frequently used muscle in the cow so it’s tough and stringy unless it’s cooked long, slow, and usually wet.  After it’s been cooked in this fashion it’s buttery smooth and […]

Gefilte Fish

Yep, you heard me: Gefilte Fish. I suspect that my readers are more worldly than I am and that the idea of a light, fresh, and delicious gefilte fish is neither strange nor novel. I, however, spent most of my life with my only exposure to this being the horrifying gray floating globs in jars […]

Bolongese Sauce

The simple truth behind this dish is that it was the product of my near obsessive need not to throw away leftovers and I had some turkey meatballs and tomato sauce left over in the fridge but I didn’t really want to eat meatballs again so soon. Now, a true bolongese sauce is made from […]

Beans and Rice

So, I’m not Spanish, or Latina, or of any ethnic heritage that makes me qualified to offer up a self-made beans and rice recipe. But this meal sure satisfies, and it’s about as simple as a complete meal gets. It’s filling, delicious, and basically nutritious. Besides, my husband loves it and sometimes that’s all that […]

My friend Amy is, in my opinion, the best kind of vegetarian. (Ooh, I’m going to get all opinionated on vegetarianism and make myself some enemies. Watch out for the flame wars in the comments!) No, but seriously, I think that she really does it right. Believe it or not, as an omnivore I’ve never […]

So, by now you can probably tell that I’m a soup junkie. Except for gazpacho (which I think of as glorified salsa) I’ve never met a soup I didn’t like. They are warm and soothing, hearty and satisfying, generally pretty healthy, and easy to make ahead of time. Pop the pot onto the stove to […]

As with a version of rice and beans that I intend to post sometime soon (despite having no Latina heritage on which to draw) I am now posting what is no doubt a thoroughly inauthentic dish. But it’s tasty!
