    I attended a cooking demonstration by Lisa Brink of Hod Hasharon. Lisa has her own cooking blog,, and has some wonderful ideas about cooking and presentation. This recipe comes from her Take Five class, recipes which contain five main ingredients and take five minutes to prepare. This bread was delicous, soft and yummy and devoured by everyone in the class, even the carbophobes!

    This recipe is originally a Karin Goren masterpiece. Karin Goren is a local Israeli food personality, always smiling, always baking the most wonderful things. I watched her do this cheesecake on her show, Sweet Secrets, and was able to recreate this wonderful dish over the past weekend. Of course, not being able to leave well enough alone, I played around with her recipe, made a few changes, and here is my version

    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 recipe is probably my most favorite of all the ones presented in the course. It's a bit spicy, so if you don't do spicy, you can cut back on the hot pepper. I'll probably double the amount at home..... Marinating time is not included in the prep time.

    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 was a meat-laden course, but these potatoes served as the perfect foil to the meal.

    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.

    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).

    The etrog (citron) is a citrus fruit that is used by Jews every year during the holiday of Sukkot (late September, early October, depending on the lunar calendar). It's entire purpose during the week-long holiday is to smell nice. Yes, that's it, we just smell the thing. After the holiday is over you can chop up the etrog and make jam. What I like to do is to stud it with cloves and then use it as the most aromatic besamim for the havdalah service signifying the end of the Sabbath. Aside from the etrog and the cloves, you will need a thin crochet hook to pierce the fruit before sticking in the clove. I use a 0.75 hook, but a 1.00 will work just as well. These babies last for years, and if you already have one or two (or ten or eleven, as is the case in my house), they make lovely gifts. BTW, you can also use a lemon or an orange, the results are the same, just shaped differently.

    I found this recipe online in an article about a Philadelphia restaurant and tried it out at home. I wasn't overawed by it, but love the flavors, so I decided to play around with it a bit. By the third batch I had hit gold.

    I found a recipe on a fun food blog -- SingleGuyChef -- that looked absolutely perfect for me, had most of my favorite foods all combined together, except for one thing, it wasn't kosher. So with a little playing around, I came up with this. Good thing I'm good at adapting... ;-)

    My friend Judy Montagu has a cooking column in the local English paper (I may have mentioned that before). Baking well without margarine has become something of a holy grail here in Israel, and we're always on the lookout for a recipe without those bad-for-you fats that actually works. In Judy's last column she's finally found a cookie worthy of posting. She credits her friend Alice Jonah for the recipe.

    Created for RSC #9. We love Cottage Pie at our house, it's comfort food. This recipe has an additional umph of protein with the addition of lentils, and a bit of zing courtesy of a jalapeno pepper.

    Sent to me via email, this has to be one of the easiest, yet one of the most romantic cakes I've seen in a long time. I wish I could post the picture that came with this, but since I didn't make it, or take it, one of the wonderful Zaar photogs is going to have to step up to the plate (literally!). The person who made the cheesecake said she used a silicone heart-shaped mold but the cake did not set as solidly as a baked cake, so she threw it in the freezer for about half an hour before unmolding. Cooking time is chill time.

    I've been trying to get myself off coffee and fizzy drinks, and this seems to be the perfect solution for me. I'm posting the recipe as sugar-free, because that's how I like it (and this is MY recipe, after all), but feel free to mess it up as much as you like.

    First, a little information: Sushiman and I have 8 kids together. A meal alone at home with just the two of us is usually a non-existant event. But last night the planets were aligned correctly, and it was just the two of us. We had originally planned to go out for a quick bite to eat, but I decided to take advantage of the privacy and cook us a romantic dinner. I had no idea what to make, but the inspiration just came to me while I was in the supermarket. This recipe is an original creation that evolved as I was making it last night. I'm so impressed with myself I just had to share it with you. The quantities here are just enough for two, but you can double (triple, quadruple) the ingredients for the amount of people you want to feed.

    Not something you would ever find in a fast food restaurant, these chickies pack a punch of flavor, and are very pretty too, on their bed of fresh spinach. For couth guests only! ;-) Note: I get the greatest grated ginger (how's that for alliteration?) by freezing the ginger root first and then grating it on a Microplane zester.

    Everyone knows that hot water and a piece of lemon is good for you. This drink started out because I not only needed a hot drink in the morning, I needed a hot drink that would wake me up. For me, this drink packs more of a punch than any cup of coffee, and it's caffeine-free!

    When I first saw this recipe I could not believe how easy it was. Of course, I can't leave a recipe alone, and added a few changes to make it more "mine."

    One of my favorite food blogs is Brownie Points ( The latest entry is for Chewy Brownie Bites. The recipe has simply enchanted me, and the option of adding something different to every single brownie is mind-boggling. The ingredients come directly from the blog, but the directions are mine.
