Recipes I've Shared:
One of my favorite recipes from Smitten Kitchen, and my go-to dessert for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, when apples are a traditional food. Recipe here: https://smittenkitchen.com/2008/09/moms-ap
Note that I omit walnuts and use coconut oil instead of canola or vegetable oil.
This delicious salad is a great alternative to traditional cole slaw, and is a big hit at barbecues. I also enjoy a big helping for lunch topped with salmon or surimi (fake crab).
My family's standard pancake recipe. High-protein! From food.com.
A yummy way to start the day. The bananas add sweetness, the oats add selenium and lots of other great ingredients, and the whole thing is delicious. From http://www.katheats.com/favorite-foods/ove
From the Smitten Kitchen cookbook by Deb Perelman.
From Simple Vegetarian Pleasures by Jeanne Lemlin. Yummy and mild -- good even for self-proclaimed non-curry eaters.
A Russian-themed soup to feed my Russian husband.
Completely dairy free because it comes from a kosher cookbook!
This recipe adds a little evaporated milk.
A vegan main dish that is tasty and colorful. The breadcrumbs form a golden crust on top and coat the rest of the dish with crunch and flavor when you eat it. A gratin is any dish with a crunchy topping, and does not necessarily need to include cheese.
From Simple Vegetarian Pleasures by Jeanne Lemlin.
A great thing to have for lunch!
One of my favorite dishes from the Moosewood Low-Fat cookbook. Flavorful, very filling, and will satisfy the meat eaters. Recipe online at: http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Black-Bea
From the New Jewish Cook Book. My husband raved about these!
A delicious spring soup to be served cold in warm weather. The peas provide a brilliant green color and the mint adds a hint of zing. Very different from split pea soup!
My favorite go-to lunch of the moment. The avocado adds calories, but also healthy fats and a ton of flavor and texture, so don't leave it out.
My Russian husband says this tastes just as good as the more labor-intensive recipe with whole beets. A great quick soup! Recipe can be halved; this makes a ton. Serve spooned into a soup plate over cut up cucumbers and hard boiled eggs. Boiled potatoes and more cut up green onions make good garnish too.
Very nice salad to take on a picnic or eat on a warm summer day.
This is a modification of a very delicious recipe which takes lots of time to make. Mine is quicker and hopefully only slightly less tasty!
A delicious and healthy breakfast with lots of flavor and nutrients, or an elegant dessert
A delicious grain salad that I love to bring to potlucks. It looks so festive and can be served warm or cold. The original recipe only calls for 1 cup of dry couscous, but I use a lot more when I'm bringing it to an event.
From Weight Watchers One Pot cookbook.
Originally, were Laurel's Kitchen Date Nut Muffins (p. 99), but I used cranberries and pecans. They could use a little sweetener, too, but I didn't add it. They're very sincere.
A delicious way to get your dark green leafy veggies in. My friends asked for the recipe when I served it. It keeps for several days, dressed, because kale is so robust. Note that I've modified Martha's recipe to use Better than Peanut Butter -- cuts down on the fat and calories while still keeping the essence of the dish (though it is better with the peanuts).
A delicious tomato-based vegetable soup. Perfect as a starter for cold nights.
A delicious vegetarian dish rich with the flavors of the Mediterranean. (It's vegan without the cheese, but the cheese adds a lot.) A healthy meal, but a bit salty.
