Gluten-Free Honey Cake
Our Gluten-Free Honey Cake is a simple, “plain” cake, perfect alongside a cup of your favorite hot beverage. Lovely for Rosh Hashanah, too. Speaking of hot beverages, there is black tea in the batter, which lends moisture and flavor. Get the recipe.
Moroccan Chicken with Preserved Lemons & Olives
The blend of spices – saffron, turmeric, cumin, ginger and cinnamon – might seem unusual. Combined they are indeed heady and fragrant but they are also perfectly balanced by the acidity from the Preserved Lemons as well as lemon juice.
This is one dish that I do not salt at all, which is highly unusual. The salt from the Preserved Lemons and the two kinds of olives is plenty. You can of course salt before serving if you like, but restrain yourself from salting the dish early on. Get the recipe.
Moroccan Lamb Shanks with Pomegranate & Mint
This recipe is rich in North African flavors of coriander, cumin, fennel and mint. And if you have never cooked lamb shanks, you are in for a treat! They make an impressive presentation, yet are simple to prepare. Get the recipe.
Orange Rosemary Roast Chicken

Spicy Apple Old-Fashioned
It’s fall, and my thoughts turn to all things apple. How about making a Spicy Apple Old-Fashioned? Get the recipe.
Chicken Thighs with Grapes, Thyme & Smoked Paprika
This Chicken with Grapes, Thyme and Smoked Paprika is a simple one-pan, oven-roasted meal that highlights the sweetness of the grapes, the smokiness of the paprika and the savory-ness of the chicken and thyme.
It comes together in less time than it takes for the oven to preheat and is easy enough for a weeknight but fancy enough for guests. Get the recipe.
Carrot & Potato Tsimmes
In Yiddish the word tsimmes has two broad meanings. It can reference a stew made of vegetables, often with fruit, almost always with some sort of dried fruit and sometimes meat as well. It also means “a mess” or “a fuss”, as in “why are you making such a tsimmes?”
We like serving these at Rosh Hashanah when sweet foods are used as a way to welcome the New Year, which we hope will be a sweet one! Get the recipe.
Whole Roast Chicken & Vegetables

This is a one-pot dish made in a skillet in about 10 minutes. A perfect accompaniment to roast chicken or meatloaf. Get the recipe.
Gluten-Free Noodle Kugel
Foods that are custardy and can be eaten with a spoon often make comfort food lists. Noodle Kugel is high on the list for many a Jewish child (or grown child).
It’s not that you can’t eat noodle kugel if you aren’t Jewish, it’s just that you have probably never encountered it! Cooked noodles are combined with sugar, eggs and some dairy. Try this as a side dish! Get the recipe.
How about tucking a whole pound of shredded carrots into a luscious, moist, cinnamon-accented gluten-free carrot cake with nuts and raisins and a lactose-free cream cheese frosting? Do. I. Hear. A. YES???? Get the recipe.
Garlic & Herb Roast Leg of Lamb
Leg of lamb is the dish I always think of when I want an elegant main dish for a party. It is a little less expected than beef or poultry and lamb is actually quite versatile. It lends itself to Mediterranean flavors, Indian or even very simple preparations like this Garlic & Herb Roast Leg of Lamb. Get the recipe.
Gluten-Free Matzo Ball Soup
It is possible to make light gluten-free matzo balls, and we show you how. Make your own homemade chicken stock, for best results. Get the recipe.
Citrus & Herb Oil Poached Salmon
It is just like it sounds – which we know sounds a bit odd, but stick with us here. You are using a good quantity of oil and the salmon is slowing roasting in the oven bathed in the oil at a low heat. The result is a silky smooth flesh texture that is simply sublime.
Nothing else compares. You do need enough oil to cover the fish so follow the recommendations for amount of fish, oil and size of vessel or your results might change. It is better to err on more oil than less. Get the recipe.
Slow Roasted Boneless Leg of Lamb
Our Slow Roasted Boneless Leg of Lamb features flavors of garlic, lemon and anchovy and is quite simple to make. Slow roasting uses the reverse sear technique, which means we roast the lamb in a low temperature oven for a couple of hours, and then finish it off searing in a very high heat oven. You will be rewarded with an evenly roasted leg of lamb, done to your liking. Note that we suggest an overnight marination in the refrigerator prior to roasting, so plan accordingly. Also make sure you have room in your refrigerator for a roasting pan, and an instant read thermometer on hand. Get the recipe.
Short Ribs with Horseradish & Red Wine
We love the bold flavor that horseradish provides in everything from a simple sour cream sauce to go with Roast Prime Rib to an incomparable flavor enhancer as in these Short Ribs with Horseradish & Red Wine.
Baked Rice with Olives, Feta & Pomegranate
This Baked Rice dish is not only colorful and incredibly flavorful, it is super easy too. Note the “baked” in the title. If you have never baked rice before, you are about to learn a tried and true technique. Get the recipe.
Sweet & Sour Brisket
Brisket is an incredibly versatile cut of meat. If it hasn’t made it into regular rotation in your house, this recipe for Sweet & Sour Brisket with Red Wine, Grapes and Sweet Potatoes might just encourage you to do so.
