    I got this recipe from Eti, who works in the HR department in my office, hence the name, Eti's Cheesecake. When she brought the recipe in for me to copy, it said Ayelet's Cheesecake on the paper, so she probably got it from Ayelet. I wonder what it says on Ayelet's copy. Eti brought this cake in for her birthday, and I fell in love with it. The cheese filling itself is no-bake, you just have to bake the crust, and also the reserved part of the crust to get the crumbs that you sprinkle on top. The cake is divine. I wish I had made it up.....

    For my 46th birthday my husband treated me to a one-evening cooking course. It must have been one of the most enjoyable evenings I've ever had. This recipe is from that course. While the salad itself is simple, the dressing is phenomenal. Well, I thought it was phenomenal....

    For my 46th birthday my husband treated me to a one-evening cooking course. It must have been one of the most enjoyable evenings I've ever had. This recipe is from that course. It makes a wonderful little tidbit to serve your guests. Silan is date honey, if you can't get that you can substitute regular honey.

    For my 46th birthday my husband treated me to a one-evening cooking course. It must have been one of the most enjoyable evenings I've ever had. This recipe is from that course. This was the appetizer and a very popular one at that. Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you, it's mostly herbs, spices and condiments for flavoring. Prep time does not include marinating time, that you have to figure out for yourself depending on your own personal tastes and time.

    I found the recipe for these babies on a food blog I frequent. The poster mentioned that it had been particularly cold out and these cookies served a purpose in making her feel cozy by first baking them, then eating them. Works for me! I bake these on a Silpat cookie sheet. I can't emphasize enough how wonderful these things are, the cookies just come right off, no sticking. If you don't have a Silpat, you can use parchment paper with almost the same results. I like to use the Silpat because the whole carbon footprint issue. Parchment paper may be recyclable, but Silpat is forever (unless your daughter steals it from you, which happened to me).

    Recipe #338585

    Created for my almost daughter, Hadar, who is the real daughter of my friend Karen and one of my daughter Didi's best friends. Updated 9 April 2010 -- Hadar just got engaged last night, mazal tov! I made these bars for her engagement.

    This recipe is an Indian twist based on one of my favorite creations (Recipe #24987). I serve this on plain basmati rice or couscous. It's been a big hit recently in my family. I like to use chicken breasts, but you can also use 2 chickens, cut up into servings. As an aside, my trick to grating fresh ginger is to store it in the freezer, then grate the frozen root on a Microplane grater.

    The Dr. Shakshoukah restaurant must be one of the most famous little places in all of Jaffa, quite possibly Israel, quite possibly the Middle East. I've eaten there countless times and have enjoyed every shakshoukah I've ever ordered. Silly me, I never thought to ask for the recipe. But one of my favorite blogs, Israeli Kitchen, had the chutzpah, and she managed to get the recipe and post it. She posted it with the permission of Bino Gabso, owner of the restaurant. I've added my own touch here and there based on how we like our shakshoukah.

    Recipe #332019

    I am a voracious reader of food blogs, and came across this recipe during the summer. So easy, so yummy, I've made it umpteen times since the first try and it's never failed me. Very addictive, perfect for a certain time when you crave both salty and sweet at the same moment. I also made these with cashews once when I found I was out of peanuts. Heaven! Tossed together with some raisins this is elevated to something the Greek gods might have snacked on hanging out on Mount Olympus watching the original Olympics down below...

    I found this recipe a few days ago on one of my foodie blogs, made it almost immediately, and I now have a new favorite. I'll be making this many times over until I'm sick of it, if that can be possible. Many years ago I used to be a vegan and went carnivore, but if I had had this around, I might have stuck with it a little longer. I alter the recipe here and there, and have posted a few changes. The original recipe states that this is for 4, but I could just graze on this all day long.

    I got this recipe originally from my old next-door neighbor. I watched her make it one Friday in 3 minutes flat, and when she took the cover off her food processor the heavenly smell of garlic just wafted throughout the house and killed every vampire in the neighborhood. My neighbor calls this Moroccan Zchug, my friends call it That-Yummy-Garlic-Stuff and I just smile and pile it on barbecued meats, baked potatoes, whatever. I actually happen to like vampires -- my father was born in Transylvania -- so I hope none are offended by this recipe. Just a boring little note here: there are two kinds of people in this world, cilantro lovers and cilantro haters. I belong to the former, Sushiman to the latter. If you are like Sushiman, just sub parsley for the cilantro. Since I let him put a ring on my finger and pay for my electricity, I've been making it with parsley instead and it's just as good.

    Recipe #310544

    So simple, so green, so lovely, so multi-seasonal, just so..... so! I've had this warm in winter, cold in summer, and it's always been a hit. Just the other day we served this up cold in martini glasses, first we got the oohs and ahhs over the presentation, then came the oohs and ahhs over the taste.

    Recipe #310426

    One blogger's apple crepe filling gone wrong and a wonderful discovery is made. An amazing alternative to the ubiquitous chocolate mousse! The recipe calls for 6 egg yolks but no egg whites. I hate freezing egg whites, they always get lost in my TARDIS of a freezer, so I make a Pavlova with the whites and use the mouse as a filling. Good, huh? Pardon me while I pat myself on the back for my ingenuity....

    I found this recipe while trawling through the food blogs one morning. A few tweaks later and bite-sized yumminess was emerging from my oven.

    This recipe comes from a favorite blog, 101 Cookbooks. The recipe is from the blog author's very own cookbook, Super Natural Cooking, which has been nominated for the James Beard Foundation Award. This is a great recipe with lots of sushi flavors, perfect for veggies, vegans and fish-phobes. Don't let the amount of steps in the recipe scare you, I've broken it down so it really is simple to prepare.

    Recipe #308607

    I do love food blogs, and I do love pears. When I came across this recipe on a favorite blog I knew the Gods of Serendipity were smiling down on me that day, even more so that I had too many ripe pears in the house at the moment. I've made a few changes to suit my own tastes, listed in the recipe below.

    I have a wonderful relationship with Nutella. It's manna from heaven. It's ambrosia straight from the Elysian Fields. It's delicious in cakes, ice creams, spread on bread and licked off a loved one's fingers. I found this recipe on a favorite food blog, Bake or Break. It had the magic word it in: Nutella! The minute I read the blog entry I knew I had to try these out. These are amazingly easy-to-make cookies with a powerful Nutella flavor. You would think that with Nutella in the recipe that would be enough, but noooooooooo! There's also a heavy, heady dose of cocoa in there, so it's chocolate overload. And what's so bad about that? I find it very hard to share these cookies, I really have to love you to let you have one out of my stash.

    Yes, raw beets. I hate peeling cooked beets. I discovered this recipe on a food blog and it instantly appealed to my love of beets and my hate of peeling them. It's delicious, refreshing and good!

    My friend Vicki is from Australia, and my daughter Adiya adores her. Possibly the only thing she adores more than Vicki are Vicki's cookies (only kidding Vicki, she does love you more). These are basically ANZAC biscuits, but a bit different. Vicki uses slightly more coconut than what I've seen in the ANZAC biscuit recipes here on Zaar, and since golden syrup is hard to get here in Israel, she substitutes maple syrup. It's not often my Didi brings home recipes from other mothers, so take notice of this one, it's good! Thanks, Vicki, for sharing these with Didi (and me).

    Although this is posted in response to a recipe request, I'm also posting this for myself, since it really is time I started making this yummy, spicy sauce. I normally do not like mangoes, but I do like amba, espcially drizzled on my felafel. This recipe comes from one of my Hebrew cookbooks, Matanot Mehamitbach (Gifts from the Kitchen) by Gil Hovav, one of Israel's foremost foodies, translation courtesy of me ;-) Just beware, if you injest even average quantities of this stuff, the fenugreek will add a certain je n'ai c'est quoi to your body odor. Fenugreek is good for you, but not in every way... Cooking time is also sunning time.
