Dishing It Up For Mom

August 31, 2015, by

It’s kind of a self-serving gift. You give your mother a cookbook for Mother’s Day and who benefits, Mom or you? Once upon a time cooking the family meal was just another bit of drudgery in Mom’s overworked day. Today cooking is considered a creative outlet, but with our busy schedules and hectic lives, we’re

August 31, 2015, by

Tamar Ansh, OUcooking.org Columnist – Nutritious and Delicious says: I make a sort of stew, but I never left it on the blech overnight. If I was trying to make a cholent from tofu here’s what I would do (it would serve about 4-6 people): In a large pot, saute a large onion and 4

Chef Daniel Boulud’s Sunday Supper

August 31, 2015, by

Listen to Linda’s Food Talk show on OURadio.org! Do you ever wonder what celebrity chefs cook at home? That’s the question I asked Daniel Boulud. He’s considered one of the top 10 chefs in the world and he loves home cooking. He told me he even asks his staff to bring their mothers to the

Yom Ha’atzmaut: The Flavors of Freedom

August 31, 2015, by

I wonder what there is about celebrating a national independence day that makes us all want to cook outside! In Israel, grilled and barbecued meats and poultry are as popular for Yom Ha’atzmaut as they are for American Fourth of July menus. It must be that the pleasure of cooking outdoors, enjoying the warmth of

Yom Ha’atzmaut: A Gastronomic Celebration

Jews in America, and the world over, celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut (this year on Wednesday, April 29, 2009), which marks Israel’s birth as an independent, free nation.

August 27, 2015, by

“…כחול ולבן הצבע שלי” Blue and white are my colors (and what’s black & white anyway?!), and I’m just seeing one star. So how about some Hummus, eggplant dip, pita crackers and blue & white cookies for a Yom Ha’atzmaut treat. Tamar Ansh is an author, freelance recipe developer, and food columnist. Her articles have

Warning: All Desserts!

August 27, 2015, by

Well, don’t look now but It’s Here: Pesach! So much thought, care, money and work go into this holiday that it’s no surprise that so many of us are obsessed with the holiday. I have literally been thinking for the last several months about Pesach, buying tickets and clothes, thinking about guest lists and menus

Matzah, Matzah… Prunes anyone?

August 27, 2015, by

Passover 1975. It seemed like a good idea. I’d introduce the subject of prayer to my religious school class at my local synagogue (Temple Beth Tikvah in Fullerton, CA) by asking my eager, precocious teenagers to write a telegram to G-d. I expected thank you’s and gimme’s. Imagine my reaction to this: “Dear G-d stop

Lean Cuisine

August 27, 2015, by

There’s Four Questions. Pick a question, any question… see if you can find it again! Actually, I was hoping you’d pick the fourth of these parables: 4. Why is this night different from all other nights? For on all other nights, we eat either sitting straight or leaning; But tonight we are required to lean!
