Harrissa and Honey Spatchcocked Chicken

  Winner winner chicken dinner after a full day of activities everyone wants to just sit down with the family and enjoy a good conversation over a delicious filling meal. Chicken on the bone is usually looked upon as the sad boring dinner. When you roast a whole chicken, the problem is that chicken breasts […]

Spicy Miami Ribs

Miami ribs is flanken sliced really thin. They are super tender (due to the fact they are from THE best part of the cow) and they cook super quickly. Grab a load of napkins. These spicy Miami ribs are every bit of the backyard BBQ food you’ve been craving all winter long. Spicy and slightly […]

Pizza Quesadilla

Chanukah has come and gone and we’ve had our fair share of snow already (in my opinion!!) It’s been great and exhausting getting into routine. (Is it winter break yet?!) This is where the fantastic new sliced flavored cheeses from Natural and Kosher come in. I’m always looking for something easy to throw together for […]

Sausage Tagine

Moroccan Chicken Tagine

Moroccan cuisine always intrigued me because of its stark contrast to American cuisine. I love the flavors of dates and dried fruits in savory dishes. We did a lot of tagine recipe testing over last winter resulting in some really delicious and comforting stews. Hopefully this dish will get even the biggest Ashkenazi (like me) […]

Chicken With Figs and Olives

I love to make exciting fancy dinners. Sometimes. The problem is, it usually leaves me with a whole pile of dirty pots and pans with a trail of herbs and paper towels on my counter and mysterious bits of food sticking to the floor. That, I do not love. Not one bit. The best part […]
