Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I didn’t expect to become addicted to these cookies. I thought they would be good, and i’d eat a few…not practically the whole bag. Ooops. You would know if you saw me on Instagram stories Thursday on @tomatoes_tomatoes. I remember oatmeal cookies as being a whole LOT of oatmeal. Like oatmeal is cool, but i […]

Blender Banana Oat Pancakes

Happy Sunday! How are you holding up with the new year eating resolutions? In my last post, I told you that my focus this year is to eat foods that make me feel good, but with a balance. I AM going to have that slice of cake for dessert. I really think you can have […]

Winter White Bean Soup

This soup should really be called “the soup that’s too easy for it’s own good” Got a can or two of white beans? Good. Some onions, celery, and garlic? Cool. We’re basically done here. Told you. It’s the perfect soup for a snowy winter’s day…heck any winter’s day. It’s the kind of soup you want […]

Cranberry Crumble Bars

HELLO winter. Yup, that’s official this Friday. My daughter keeps asking me when it’s going to snow around here. I can hold off on that part a little longer…. I feel like cranberries don’t get the spotlight they deserve. Let’s face it, winter can be….well depressing. At the surface, winter fruit seems kind of depressing […]

Fluffy Ricotta Donut Holes

Donuts  are arguably the best food on Chanukah. I’m more than happy to celebrate each night with these delectable balls of fried dough with jelly oozing down my fingers, and a puff of powdered sugar on my nose. Making them is fun, but tedious. I’d prefer to watch you make them and eat them. I […]

Classic Pumpkin Pie with Hawaij Coconut Cream

Growing up, we always made a thanksgiving style feast on Friday night, the night after Thanksgiving. My mom served classics like cranberry sauce, turkey, and of course….pumpkin pie! We never really experimented much, and that was fine. This year,  I gave the classic pumpkin pie a little twist by adding a hawaij spiced coconut cream […]

Hearty quinoa and white bean soup

It’s been cold, wet, and rainy the past few days and I’ve been sipping hot drinks and starting up the fireplace on repeat. It’s acceptable to serve soup for dinner these days, along with a big chunk of bread. I made this hearty quinoa and white bean soup one night last week, and it was […]

Bloody Mary Wing Snack Board

Chilly Sunday’s spent watching the game call for a plate of wings!!  I took everyone’s favorite football app and turned it into an ultimate bloody mary wing snack board. Hostesses beware, you’r guest will keep coming back for more! There is something so totally addictive to me about wings. Maybe it’s because they must be […]

Butternut Squash Rice Stuffed Chicken Capons

Butternut squash rice stuffed chicken capons are the first real food I’ve added to the blog in a while. I only heard of capons when I moved to the east coast. It wasn’t really a thing back home in Chicago. In Israel, they were pergiyot. Something deliciously moist you could order at a fast food […]

Rosh Hashana Caramel Popcorn Sundae

I used to hate autumn as a kid. Obviously, because that meant school was here. I came to the realization last year that I actually adore autumn, with it’s crisp fresh air and warm spicy flavors. The Rosh Hashana caramel popcorn sundae recipe that your about to dive into, is the perfect end to summertime […]
