Greens Combo Salad courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
On one of my visits to sunny Georgia (a country, not a state), I saw two salads on the table crowded with many unique vegetable creations. These two, however, looked very similar to each other, but different colors. One was completely green. The other – oh, the other! – it was wonderfully green and red and purple. Both were flecked with crushed walnuts, as are many other Georgian dishes, and garnished with lots of dill. Having waited out the obligatory twenty-minute toast in honor of visiting journalists (i.e. my cameraman and myself), I politely inquired.

Perfect Kale Salad courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
A nutritionist friend once told me that perfect food had to combine four flavors: sweet, sour, salty, and spicy. “Take, for example, simple kale,” she said… and her phone rang. She had to leave urgently, to consult someone who, apparently, haven’t learned all the principles of perfect food yet.

Mangold Pasta – Feel Like a Roman courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
I like browsing through recipes online, especially Russian and Ukrainian ones where I sometimes derive comfort from finding old favorites and often learn something new. That’s how one day I came across Mangold Salad. It looked interesting, so I googled it – in English

Mixed Greens Meet Fruit courtesy of Real Life of an MSW
The main ingredient was a dollar- when the last time you had a healthy meal for $1? Tonight I decided to go with mixed greens from tart to almost sweet, from crunchy to melting. You want them all in this salad. This salad can be made a million ways.Processed with MOLDIV

The torta pasqualina is a traditional pie from Liguria, a wonderful region by the sea in North-west Italy. This pie is made during Easter time when the days are getting warmer and sunnier, and people enjoy having pic-nics outside bringing their home-made food to share with friends.

Hello, Stranger, Have Some Soup! courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
Passover starts tonight, and the most important part of the celebration is called a Seder which means order. The order is prescribed in a little book called Haggada that we read at the table. The most important part of that is called Maggid which is the actual story of redemption and exodus from Egypt.  And the most important part of the story, repeated several times, is an admonition to share the holiday meal with a widow, an orphan, and a stranger because “you were strangers in a foreign land.” The same admonition is found in many other Biblical and Talmudic sources.

From then on, I asked myself if Mocha Cake can share its place with this new-found love of mine. Believe me, it’s so heavenly!!!! Words are not enough to describe how much I love this cake.

Boozy Peppermint Hot Chocolate courtesy of Real Life of an MSW
Instead of an afternoon coffee, try a walking mediation: Just walk slightly slower than your normal pace but not so slow that anyone would notice. What makes it a meditation is that you’re paying attention to the experience. As you move along, really see what’s in front of you and notice the sensation of your feet against the ground. Whenever you realize that your mind has strayed, in a friendly but firm way, return it to the experience. Integrating mind and body with a conscious walk lets you cultivate concentration, engage your muscles, bring fresh air into your lungs, and take your mind off your worries. Remember you don’t have to walk super-slow, like a zombie. But take your time. You’re not trying to go anywhere but inward – Cindy Leeboozy-peppermint-hot-chocolate

Anniversary special: Romantic Chocolate and Strawberry “Hidden-Hearts” cake courtesy of Afoodiehousewife
I came across a picture of this cake many months ago on the internet and had decided there and then, that I would try this on our anniversary. The recipe seemed simple but loooong, still it seemed worth the effort for this particular occasion.

Classic chocolate cake with strawberry syrup glaze courtesy of Afoodiehousewife
I enjoy baking cakes more than eating them. My hubby finds that hard to believe because I am a huge foodie and crazy for sweets but there is something about baking that definitely soothes me. It may be due to the fact that I whip my batter by hand instead of using the electric beater and it can be a good activity to channelize all your stress into the vigorous whipping hand exercise 😉

CHOCOLATE KULFI WITH JAGGERY AS SWEETENER courtesy of PriyaPandian
Shall we celebrate this occasion with our authentic Indian dessert Kulfi ? Here is the recipe of  Chocolate Kulfi which is a rich frozen dessert. Everyone loves this dessert for sure. Kulfi is little denser than the usual icecreams and can be easily made in home.TRH CHOCOLATE KULFI WITH JAGGERY AS SWEETENER

Decadent treat to have with a cup of coffee or tea. Really quick and easy to make. I love a recipe that doesn’t need scales. I always use the same basic ingredients – plain and milk chocolate,  marshmallows  and digestive biscuits ( gluten-free or wheat). To these I vary what I add. For this post I used dried apricots and cranberries. Sometimes I use pistachios and other dried fruits.

There’s something about Red Velvet that I like. Perhaps it’s the intriguing dark, red colour. Perhaps it’s the subtle chocolatey taste, perhaps it’s that tinge of sourness. Heck! It’s everything about Red Velvet that I like. It’s hard not to like them and I find myself not being able to say no whenever I am offered with one.

– Mesmerize them with the magic of butter, eggs, flour and licking up the resulting cookie dough

I do not use any other recipe when I need a VEGAN CHOCOLATE CAKE. This one is moist and incredibly easy and above all mega yummy!
I made the this recipe x3 and had 6 dozen cupcakes, which I made for our granddaughter’s 1st birthday party. 👶

This one happened by accident.  I needed a treat to take to a get together, and then hunted in the baking cabinet and found these ingredients, so this was what happened.  It was well received, and I also made it more than once thereafter.  I winner and keeper.

Chocoberry Breakfast Loaf  courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
Blueberries are in season! They are huge – the size of cherries! – and sweet like dates. Had I not known that they were organic, I would’ve thought they were on steroids or something. As much as I love just popping them in my mouth all day long, one could only consume so much, and they are highly perishable. I had to do something about it, and quick! I recalled an old recipe I had for whole wheat raisin bread, so I dug it up and started playing with it.

Popalik for a Poor Orphan  courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
We do not cook on Shabbos. Food must be ready before sundown on Friday, and nothing could be cooked or even reheated until after sundown on Saturday. Yet the tradition demands hot food to be served both on Friday night and on Saturday afternoon. Friday night is relatively easy as you finish cooking or heating things up right before lighting Shabbos candles, and hot dinner is ready to be served. But how do you keep it hot for Saturday afternoon?

Homemade Focaccia Bread courtesy of The Urben Life
Whew! This focaccia bread was actually way more time consuming than I thought it would be, a couple hours to be somewhat exact. BUT it’s so yummy, so WORTH IT! trh-focaccia-bread

Kaas Uienbrood (Cheese Onion Bread) courtesy of ANN GRUBBSNCRITTERS
There! My first homage to a Dutch dish apart from the Bitterballen. Anyone can make this and if you’ve never tried making bread before, this recipe will make you feel like the Goddess of Brood (Bread)

Banana Bread Perfection courtesy of ANN GRUBBSNCRITTERS
My quest for that perfect banana bread recipe has come to an end after the fourth time mucking around with methods and ingredients as well as mixing and matching the different recipes I found from several sources.trh-banana-bread-perfection

Artisan Bread courtesy of All that’s Jas
I’ve been dreaming of owning a Dutch oven (cast iron pot) just so I could make this bread but that didn’t justify the price of it in my head. I can bake perfectly good bread without the Dutch oven, thank you very much. So, when my daughter surprised me with it for Christmas I was overjoyed. We will ignore the fact that it took whole three months before I actually baked the bread and instead focus on the recipe.

Challah courtesy of cookingforthetimechallenged
This is our favorite challah recipe. I make it every week. It works in the bread machine or in the food processor.
Depending on the time of year, I often make the dough in the bread machine. I put the ingredients in the bread machine before I go to work Friday morning. Then, I set the timer so that the dough will be done when I get home from work.
The first thing I do when I walk in the door is braid the dough. I let the loaves rise and bake them just before Shabbat. It is so great to have fresh baked challah for Shabbat!

Hey pixels!! This happy recipe is an adaptation of this one, found at the wonderful blog of my friend Daisy Ashcroft, who made a vegan banana bread. I’ve never made a banana bread before, but I really wanted to make one. So here it is!!trh-vegan-banana-bread

Nutmeg Cinnamon Popovers  courtesy of snapshotsincursive
These bakery-style popovers come with a warning label: Highly Addictive! Perhaps I might include a disclaimer. If you never suffer with sweet tooth cravings or for some unknown reason dislike cinnamon, no worries. For the rest of us, all I can say is “Try to resist licking your fingers!”.

Bread Onion Scramble courtesy of PriyaPandian
Making a snack at home makes us feel happy as well as give us a satisfaction that they are home made. This Indian style scramble is one such type that can be made in a jiffy with few ingredients. This is a tea-time snack that can be made with left over bread of any flavour and variety.

Fabulous Fruit Bread courtesy of Cook Yourself Happier
This really does look good enough to eat even though I say it myself!  And of course you are getting some fresh berries which are wonderful for you.  The more berries the better.  I love nuts so I’ve used walnut pieces but I sometimes use toasted hazelnuts or almonds. The base bread is fruit loaf and once you have made it pop it in the freezer and enjoy whenever you feel peckish.  Toasted with butter I love it for breakfast and afternoon tea.  It also makes a really decadent pudding if you add some vanilla ice cream and maple syrup.
