Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos

Here’s another recipe that appeared in the Shavuos issue of the AMI (Also see French Style Cheesecake) The idea  for these Mahi Mahi fish tacos came to me on Pesach as I was browsing Pinterest on my in-laws couch. A few weeks later, I was in Seasons and I saw these ready fried taco shells by […]

French Style Cheesecake

  This recipe appeared in this past Shavous issue of the AMI magazine. The entire photo shoot took place on a windy and chilly May Day. So windy in fact, one of the glass vases blew over and crashed all over the salad bar. There’s nothing a team of talented ladies can’t do though..ammiright?! We […]

Sausage Tagine

Wow it’s been a while since I’ve done a blog post. I’m not sure what happened there…I got sick for a few days and at that point, just doing laundry became the biggest accomplishment of the day. Then came Thanksgiving, which we went all out on. If your following us on Instagram (@tomatoes_tomahtos) You’ll see […]

Coffee Halva Mousse Pie

So usually I spend quite a while on my blog posts…you’ll have to excuse me today. It’s Thursday night and I promised I would get this recipe up by shabbos. My house looks like a tornado hit it. I just moved over a bowl of pasta and two cucumber slices to sit down on the […]

Fall Chicken Salad

Well….the holidays have come to an end (for now) and the washing machine has been viciously spinning for the past 24 hours. Im pretty sure my body still thinks it’s getting fed two insanely large meals a day because I’ve made a generous dent on the new goodies I stocked up on. I can’t say […]

Pumpkin Apple Soup

I’ve always viewed pumpkins as either a purée in a can for pie or as a decoration. I couldn’t imagine peeling one to make into a soup. Too much work and orange hands. Yuck. Then I saw these cute ones at the grocery store. That got me thinking, this can’t be so hard to peel…and […]

Lotus Babka

  I had no idea why everybody was stuffing their suitcases with this lotus stuff from Israel. How good could it really be? Is it truly the pareve equivalent of the decadent Nutella? Then people got smart over here. They starting importing it. I finally got my taste- or shall we say 1/4 c full? […]

Parsnip and Sunchoke Soup

This creamy, velvety soup is a comforting addition to any meal. Sunchokes taste slightly nutty, and they pair well with the earthy parsnips. I love using beef jerky as a garnish to any creamy looking soup—it’s so delicious! The sunchoke is also known as a Jerusalem Artichoke, although it has absolutely no connection to the […]

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) […]

Homemade Apple Cider

We’ve really taken to picking fresh fruit & veggies this summer. My daughter is finally old enough and we can’t deny that we love having a haul of super fresh produce to start the week. A few weeks ago we headed to the apple orchards and picked 13 Lbs of apples!! A little ambitious I […]
