Brrrr, it’s cold outside. But we know exactly what you need to warm up: some spicy, hawaij hot cocoa.
My 4-year-old previously meatball-loving child, has recently decided, in fact, she does not like meatballs any longer. Or tomato sauce. My husband does not like spaghetti squash. And I am trying to cut back on my carbs just a smidge. In short, dinner is becoming harder and harder to coordinate. So when I made sweet and sour meatballs for the first time recently and they were devoured, I knew we had a winner.
After spotlighting some of the Best Delis in the Midwest, the natural thing to do was start daydreaming about delis of the South. We imagined menus full of Southern-Jewish mashups, quirky regulars with southern accents, and noshing outdoors in February. Whether or not this fantasy represents the reality of Jewish delis of the south, we think these hotspots will satisfy anyone’s craving for matzah ball soup and a New York-style bagel with schmear.
A friend recently reached out because she decided to slowly introduce meat back into her diet after being a vegetarian for over 20 years. But, she had never cooked meat – where should she start??
Who wants a delicious buttery-tasting scone that is vegan, takes under 10 minutes to prepare and is loaded with nutrition? I’ll take a dozen, thanks.
New Yorkers have so many options when it comes to lox and smoked fish — Eastern Nova, Western Nova, Gravlax, or Belly Lox just cover the basics. You can sample and place your order at the city’s finest appetizing stores, like Zabar’s, Barney Greengrass, Russ & Daughters or Shelksy’s, each with their own take on smoked fish. But these menu items actually have a lot in common –many of them come from Acme Smoked Fish in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
The Paleo Diet is hot — what was met with skepticism in 2013 is now a full-fledged lifestyle for some. If you’re accommodating paleo friends, or forging ahead as a newcomer to the Paleo Diet, you might be wondering how to navigate the tricky list of Paleo Do’s and Don’ts for Shabbat dinner.

One of the things I like most about Sephardic food is the enveloping aroma of warm spices that just screams comfort food. It’s like a cure for everything from physical to mental.
One of the first Jewish foods I remember eating is challah. I associate challah with mingling at bar and bat mitzvahs, a glass of grape juice in hand and a chunk of bread in the other, calculating how many times I could reasonably duck into the temple bathroom without looking suspicious.
