Roasted Asparagus Lasagna with Goat Cheese Roasted Asparagus Lasagna with Goat Cheese

The light flavors of asparagus and goat cheese practically scream spring and since we are now done with Passover, I don’t know about you JDaters®, but I am craving pasta.

Herbed Roasted Chicken with Quinoa-Mushroom Pilaf Herbed Roasted Chicken with Quinoa-Mushroom Pilaf

Sometimes you just need a really good piece of chicken. The fresh herbs and citrus bring out the best in chicken. I love the aroma that this chicken adds to the house when it is roasting. It is perfect for Shabbat dinner as well as a weekday meal.

Charoset Tasting
Charoset Tasting

The seder is the highlight of the Passover holiday. The dramatic retelling of the Jews’ exodus from Egypt is punctuated with foodstuffs that symbolize events and stir our emotions. Charoset symbolizes the mortar that the Jews used to cement the bricks. It is eaten in combination with the maror or bitter horseradish to remind us of the sweetness of life, even in bitter times.

Kosher and Delicious for Passover and Every Other Day Kosher and Delicious for Passover and Every Other Day

One sure sign that Spring has sprung is the plethora of Passover products that start appearing on grocery store shelves. Each year, I look forward to checking out what new foodstuffs were invented. Usually these products are meant to counterfeit their non-Passover counterparts. Each year, I hold my own personal contest to see what the strangest and most Pesadich-y thing will be…

When I promised my husband that I would provide a steady supply of “Kitchen Gold” I think he was expecting something completely different than what he found in the freezer, refrigerator and sometimes balcony.

The mitzvah of giving baskets of food or Mishloach Manot on Purim is one I enjoy. I like the giving and of course the receiving! Mishloach Manot (Hebrew) or Slach Manos (Yiddish) means “sending portions” and refers to the food baskets given on Purim. Jewish law says to give two different types of ready-to-eat food, each of which require a different blessing, to at least one person.

I like hamantashen and certainly have eaten my fill of the tender, cakey treats. Don’t get me wrong. They are delicious and fun to make. But, they are safe and not at all sexy…

Whether you are spending Valentine’s Day alone, with a friend or even if you don’t celebrate at all, it is hard to ignore the red foil cherubs, pink and red hearts, and message heart candy everywhere. I personally look for any excuse to eat chocolate.  Chocolate recipes are fun, easy, do-ahead and delicious. They can also be eaten saved for Purim in just a few weeks time. Enjoy!

Game Day Game Day

It’s only days before the big game and I am not sure who to root for nor what I am serving. For me the decision of which team or town I like best is not the only issue. I have to decide if I want dairy or meat. Hot wings or gooey cheese? So many decisions and so much delicious food!
