Kosher S'mores Indoors

A pro roaster won't settle for anything less than perfection.

S’mores, in my snobby opinion, are a delicacy. You can’t simply put marshmallows and chocolate over a graham cracker, stick them in the microwave or toaster oven, and call them s’mores.

If you’ve never eaten an Ataulfo mango, stop what you’re doing and buy one because you’ve missed something very special. There’s a reason this fruit is also called the “champagne mango.” Its sweet, incredibly luscious flesh is something to celebrate.

Simple. Beautiful. Kushner.

Special To The Jewish Week

The best thing I ever ate was a crepe off of a food truck in Paris. Perhaps it was because I consumed it at the fourth meal hour of 3:00 a.m., but I still dream of the soft yet slightly crunchy crepe oozing lots of gooey cheeses and fresh spinach. Once I started cooking Jewish cuisine for a living, I realized my beloved crepe was really just the French equivalent of Bubbe’s classic cheese blintzes.

Crazy For Israeli Couscous

Pack some springtime flavor into fluffy Israeli couscous.

Couscous, the grain so nice they named it twice! Oy, a corny joke, but also quite accurate when it comes to Israeli couscous. As I learned from Sam Talbot on GMC Trade Secrets, Israeli couscous is smaller than ordinary couscous and therefore less granie, and quicker to cook. What’s nice about this recipe is it packs in a lot of great spices and flavors thanks to the dried coconut, pine nuts, onion, lemon and garlic. A perfect dish to welcome springtime.

After returning from a trip to Israel, it's difficult to find falafel in the United States that lives up to the deliciousness of the one you had on Ben Yehudah, or anywhere in Israel for that matter. But that's all about to change.

There’s nothing I like more than biting into a soft, warm pretzel, (smothered in mustard) but rarely can I find such a treat outside of a ballpark or street vendor. Fortunately, Daphna Rabinovitch at The Kosher Scoop has an easy, quick and fun way to prepare this scrumptious snack at home.

If you (and your teeth) survived the onslaught of sugar that is the holiday of Purim, congratulations! In an effort to stay away from sweets and embrace wholesome, hearty foods, I present one of the most humble of all foods: The lentil. A seemingly quiet, unassuming legume, lentils are super cheap, packed with protein, fiber and vitamins. Oh, and they're tasty.
