Strawberry Mango Sufganiyot
December 2, 2010 | 11 Comments

*I'm adding this comment on November 25, 2013 - I decided to shoot a 'how-to' video for this recipe. Apparently, I've simplified things a bit over the years and put the dough together as I do my challah and yeasted sweet dough. Dry ingredients in the bowl and then add the liquids. Si...

*Check out the new video on how to make oven baked latkes! Less time, fuss and oil - more time to party! Scroll below to watch video now.I made these last night for an event. We have a saying in the kitchen these days: "Twelve years later....." Yeah, even for us pros, we continue to learn ... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Old Fashioned Snickerdoodles
June 4, 2012 | 1 Comments

I'm a recovering picky eater who survived many years on a lean diet of Coke and plain bagels. As a kid, I liked baking brownies and refrigerator cookies. Snickerdoodles never popped up on my radar until I had the bakery. Snickerdoodles are not spelled c-h-o-c-o-l-a-t-e so why bother? By request,... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Malasadas ~ Portuguese Doughnuts
December 18, 2011 | 0 Comments

Chanukah is a time of dreidels and sufganyot, latkes. As a convert, hitching a ride on the turnip cart of culinary traditions feels often times like riding shotgun with the real McKleins. Whatever I cook with painstaking authenticity can seem disingenuous to the ritual of lining up at the local deli... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Crusted Acorn Squash
December 20, 2011 | 0 Comments

Chanukah begins tonight. Taking a break from taste testing deep fried doughnuts of various cultures, I want to make something savory that is simple with less oil. Picking up my newest cookbook, Yotam Ottolenghi's "Plenty", I see page after page of vegetarian recipes worth exploring. On... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Oven Baked Yam Fries
December 20, 2011 | 2 Comments

Yam fries are very easy to make in the oven. Would have made my life easier knowing that before I did an event last summer; I fried them on the stove top. Took forever and the demand was constant. To make these, I purchase one long yam of even width. Wash the skin, slice in even wedges, place on a s... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Bumwelos ~ South African Style
December 18, 2011 | 0 Comments

Thinking I'd keep my mother company as she recoups from a chest cold, I load my car with a pantry of ingredients and equipment. I figure I can make Chanukah treats for the website and visit at the same time. Since her Alzheimer's diagnosis last summer, we siblings are trying to rotate days c...

Falafel Patties with Tehini (Gluten-free)
June 22, 2011 | 4 Comments

Serving falafel last weekend to rave reviews, most guests are surprised that it tastes homemade. It should taste homemade as it is a real little red hen process to make. We do everything short of growing and harvesting the garbanzo beans. Freshly ground beans, chopped herbs, tons of onions and ... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Yukon Gold Potato and Leek Latkes
December 5, 2010 | 1 Comments

These are my favorite potato latkes. I love the sweetness of the Yukon Gold potato with the mildly pungent leeks. Both the potatoes and the sauteed leeks are naturally moist. We found draining them in a strainer before combining all the ingredients prevented the mixture from becoming too soupy.... (Continue to recipe and instructions)
