Buffalo Chicken Wings with Non-Dairy Ranch Recipe

My general approach to cooking kosher and vegetarian food is to focus on celebrating what is not restricted, as opposed to attempting to make a “fake” version of something.

Or maybe you think of those equally New York-centric square knishes, sold from hot dog carts for $1, with a crispy outside and creamy potato-y inside.
