Easiest Rosh Hashanah dinner ever
Posted: September 14, 2016

Celebrity cooks share their Rosh Hashanah recipes
Posted: September 14, 2016

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, gives Jews a sense of change and new beginnings. One of the ways to signal that renewal and optimism is to engage our senses: We listen to the shofar, the clarion call of the season, and we eat symbolic foods, such as round challah (representing the cyclical nature of life) and enjoy the sweetness of apples dipped in honey.

Pineapple adds refreshing tang to chicken
Posted: June 29, 2016

make chicken so often that my kids once told me we were all going to grow feathers and start clucking. But they never complained that it was the same old chicken because it never was. There are few foods as versatile as this worthy bird, so it was always easy for me to prepare it in a multitude of ways. Over the years, I learned that chicken dinner never has to be boring.

Potato-carrot dish a Passover-perfect side
Posted: April 13, 2016

With Passover comes lots of cleaning, matzah eating and potato peeling. I know, I know – potatoes get a bad rap during Passover because they’re one of the seemingly few things we can eat (and therefore are made very frequently during these eight days). But I say don’t fight the potatoes. Embrace them! They’re cheap, they’re easy, everybody likes them and they really are delicious.
