Chanukah Recipes

Spicy Chicken Wingettes
I've resigned myself to the fact that 2012, like 2011, is vacation-less. Doesn't stop me of dreaming of Maui, Oahu or even that tall plastic leaved palm tree that used to sit in Butte, Mo... Read More
Vegetarian Fried Spring Rolls
I've been wanting to make spring rolls for a long time. Actually, I've been wanting to make Filipino lumpia for a long time. Similar, the wrapper is different; lighter. I tried making my own b... Read More
Ground Turkey Fried Wontons and Potstickers
As long as I have everything in place for spring rolls, I figure I should make fried wontons and potstickers. I haven't made them before but, as with all things cooking, I think that if someone el... Read More
Vegetables in Beer Batter Tempura
Tempura, when light and crisp and hot out of the oil, is one of my favorite things. This recipe covers all bases. It takes very little of any given vegetable to make an assorted tempura platter. A lar... Read More
Easy Yam Fries
At the end of my day of testing recipes using my new Waring Pro deep fryer and lots of oil, I find myself with half of a giant red garnet yam. Peeled, long and begging to be cooked, I cut long 1/2&quo... Read More
Strawberry Mango Sufganiyot
*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 ... Read More
Ultra Fabulous Batter-Fried Chicken
It's the end of the secular year and, in addition to closing out my books, I'm looking at my many photos of food not yet uploaded to this website. Too many fried latkes and doughnuts later, I&... Read More

Old Fashioned Snickerdoodles
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... Read More
Malasadas ~ Portuguese Doughnuts
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 c... Read More
Crusted Acorn Squash
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 ... Read More
Oven Baked Yam Fries
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 ... Read More
Chinese Sesame Balls ~ Gluten-free
I've only made sesame balls twice in my life. Yesterday and today. I watched a video online, found a recipe in my Maui Extension Cookbook and pulled a recipe from About.com. Yeah, wish me luck jus... Read More
Potato Leek Green Latkes
Fiddling around in the kitchen, I come up with a recipe for my 'dream latke'.....leeks, spinach, zucchini and mashed potatoes fried to golden perfection. More Sephardic than Eastern European, ... Read More
Bumwelos ~ South African Style
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... Read More
Funfetti Cake
Part of me is procrastinating. I should be working on Thanksgiving recipes. Only one glitch; fresh turkeys haven't arrive at the market and mashgiach can't come until this afternoon. I love wh... Read More
Falafel Patties with Tehini (Gluten-free)
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 grow... Read More
Fish and Chips
Coming out of Passover, I'm surprised about all the hoopla of the big wedding in London this week. I'm also surprised to hear that the Obama's weren't invited. Hmmm. A few wa... Read More
