Some people are inspired by a star athlete, others, by true love. In this case, my muse is yet another fresh, locally caught fish.
Tuna steaks are one of those aptly named cuts of fish. Seared in an ultra-hot iron skillet, the results are meaty and satisfying. Unlike delicate flounder, which calls for only a smattering of butter and lemon, tuna is a
Salads are probably the mostly widely served item on most people’s menus. They are generally used as appetizers, meal starters and side dishes. You can use a salad as a blank canvas and change up the makings by adding different types of fillers such as nuts, fruits, or other type things. Either way, they are delicious and make great
I had an idea for this week’s recipe and was very excited to try it. I sliced a large fennel bulb, roasted the slices and then topped the fragrant segments with red pear, Stilton and freshly candied walnuts. It smelled wonderful and looked fabulous. I tasted it and made a face. It did not work. The soft fennel had lost its personality and could not provide a
When my son was about 8 years old, he casually asked me, “Do only Jewish people use crockpots?”
I imagine his thinking was along the lines of cholent. He had mostly seen crockpots being used on Shabbos in people’s homes. I quickly assured him this was not the case. In fact, I, myself, loved to use a crockpot to make meals before leaving for work.

I saw some lovely striped bass on sale. Ignoring the fact that I had an enormous amount of preparation ahead, and that purchasing some perishable fish may not be terribly wise, I ordered half a pound and added it to my overflowing shopping cart.
Sure enough, I was so busy I had no time to prepare the striped bass. It sat, wrapped and untouched, in my
Bergenfield—Seventy eight gluten-free cakes were donated by Teaneck’s Butterflake Bake Shop to the Gluten-Free Gemach, a short-term gemach which was started by Miriam and Jeff Rosenfeld of Bergenfield. The gemach, highlighted by JLBC in its April 3rd edition, is winding up its second year operating only for the two weeks following Passover. Through publicity on
Vegetarians, and especially vegans, need some high-protein plant food with a bit of heft to keep them going during Passover, especially if observing the Ashkanazic tradition that forbids eating kitniyot—a category that includes legumes, most grains, and some seeds. Meat eaters also might want to break the monotony
Not too far from where I live historians have been fighting to preserve a sandstone house that has one of the last known outdoor kitchens in the northeast. Coincidentally to that, a friend of mine in Arizona was telling me how she had conceived, planned and built an outdoor kitchen for her home—for Pesach.
It was the easiest way, she said, to have a
