Sunday Mornings Made Easy — Lazy Dumplings

Sunday mornings were fun when I was a kid.  My sister and I woke up at 9:30 am, unceremoniously crawled into our parents’ bed, waking them up, and got ourselves ready for the weekly TV program called “The Alarm Clock”… It was a Sunday variety show for kids, filled with songs, dance, cartoons, riddles, clowns […]

Stuffed Lamb Rolls From Abruzzo

Trying Something Different: Stuffed Lamb Rolls

In search of some new ways of using lamb — we had a surplus of it this week — I found a neat recipe here. It seemed fairly straight-forward and sounded very promising, although no picture was provided. Who posts recipes without pictures these days, I wonder.  In hindsight, I probably shouldn’t have attempted it […]

Farmer Cheese Patties

And on that farm he had some … cheese!

Growing up in Ukraine, we were consuming vast quantities of farmer cheese.  It was a staple, the kind of thing that you almost certainly would find in anyone’s fridge. It was cheap, it was filling, and it was made from whole milk.  Not ricotta. And certainly not the slimy clumpy foodstuff charmingly called “cottage cheese” […]

Rabbit Terrine in a rustic serving dish

Terrine Incognita — Making Rabbit Terrine

If you ever invested your time and energy cooking anything French classic, you probably noticed that the best things always have the least number of components.  For example, classic Boeuf Bourguignon only has five or six ingredients,  it’s the method that brings forth the most flavor and makes this the best tasting (and looking) stew you’ll ever […]

Matzoh Brei - traditional Jewish skillet pie

Dearly Belated. Making Matzoh Brei

It seems these days that I am always late.  We aren’t talking appointments and school drop offs…  We are talking, weeks, even months at a time. I signed my kid up for Jewish library distribution a while back.  They send her an age appropriate book each month.  The books are supposed to showcase essentials of […]
