We’re not even home for shavous this year and I’ve already made my 3rd cheesecake. I think I have a problem.
In other news, my house is legit upside down right now. Good thing I have cheesecake to help we think about how to ignore this mess.
Here’s my favorite cheesecake recipe of all time from @jewishfood that I wrote a million years ago when I was an itty bitty blogger person. I used the brownie recipe I posted Monday for the base minus the espresso, covered it with @bestselectkosher hot fudge and smashed Kliks and proceeded to eat the rest of the fudge and klik dust with leftover doughnuts. If anyone wants to volunteer to put my kids to bed I’ll let you join my party

Shavous is less than a week away and I have been working so tirelessly eating so many cheesecakes for you all. It’s fine, no need to thank me. This is my job and someone has to do it!
This recipe is a mocha brownie bottomed cheesecake with a coffee liqueur swirl. My friend Gitty just launched her incredible @misceoliqueurs and it’s so good it was only deserving of a recipe like this one! I would once again like to thank my bestie @ykpfood for looking fondly at the cheesecake squares as she photographed them and made my dreams come true yet again. I’m really sorry for not making them cholov yisroel and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.
Okay, enough with the teasing already! Recipe in the comments 😊
Happy Mother’s Day! Hope everyone had a wonderful day, whether you are a mom, have a mom, had a mom, or just look like a mom. Just in case you didn’t have a great day, here’s some pretty pictures of sourdough croissants to look at that I most certainly did not make today.
Of all the jobs I have, this one is my favorite, cuz no matter how badly I mess up, they still think I’m awesome.
Also, huge happy Mother’s Day to my mom who encourages me every step of the way and always makes sure I’m taken care of. Even though I’m a mom, she still takes care of me like I’m a kid, which when you are not actually a kid can be the best thing in the world. Love you mom 😍 @yonaloveshine

Sometimes something is so clear in my head and I don’t know how to describe it. Luckily I have a friend who needs no words to see the same vision I have in my head. Legitamaly, a series of gestures gets something as stunning as this!
Also I’m really sad I don’t remember who sent me the tag on @brooklynsupper page to the most stunning spring alium quiche but thank you! It’s was the perfect use for my stunning chive flowers from the garden. K but if you guys don’t have chive flowers you can still make this delicious quiche for shavous! Actually make it tomorrow, it’ll freeze perfectly. Check out @brooklynsupper page for the recipe.

My love for ethnic food knows no bounds so when my friend Sue from work shared her traditional Indian tofu and rice recipe I was all over it. I was super surprised by how quick it all came together especially because I pressed the tofu the night before. The result was an aromatic spicy hearty dish that was cooked by a flavorful yogurt sauce. If this isn’t on your menu for shavous side dish, it should be!
Super firm Tofu drained pressed and cut into chunks
1 c rice
2 tbsp Oil
2 Inch cinnamon or 1 tsp ground
2 cloves or 1/4 tsp ground
3 whole cardamom or 1/2 tsp ground
1 red onion thinly sliced
1 tsp diced Jalapeño
1 Clove Garlic grated
1 tsp grated ginger
1/4 cups Chopped cilantro
1/4 c chopped mint
Cover rice in water to soak
Brown tofu in oil over medium heat (about 5-8 min)
Pour oil into large frying pan. Sauté spices until fragrant. Add onion garlic ginger and pepper and sauté until soft 3-5 minutes. Add tofu
Drain and rice
Cover with 1 1/2c water
Add salt and pepper to taste
Cover, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 15 mins, sit covered 10 Mins before serving.
Fluff with a fork and Serve with Yogurt and chopped cucumbers and mint (raita)
Optional: add some chopped tomato with the onion.

I may have missed #cincodemayo but I sure made up for it tonight! This dinner got put together so quickly my babysitter actually asked if I had it delivered!
Check out my stories to see how it all went down 😋

Dinner for 1.
This week was hard. No lies. It had lumps bumps and bruises. One thing for sure tho-Thank G-d it’s Shabbos!!
Onward and upward
Desperation creates a special kind of genius.
Fried kugel topped with fried egg and tomato garlic confit plus garden “chops”
Next time I’m not going to have to be in desperate need of dinner when I make this. Also, food blogger friends, dibs on this for a chanuka recipe!
The video of scoring this was so awesome I’m saving it to highlights. Check it out!!
Since there was no Chol Hamoed birthday this year I’m making my own little celebration with hands off one pan dinners this week.
This was earlier this week just 400F 15 minutes. Tonight was roast chicken and and potatoes. Tomorrow will probably be something with eggs.
Pickles as promised!
These taste sour through and through! I used Persian cucumbers hence the Israeli looking pickle. If you use full fledged Kirby’s initial pickling will take a couple extra days.
Recipe from Zaidy Meyer ❤️ 10-15 small pickling cucumbers (or Kirby)
2 tbsp kosher salt
1 tbsp pickling spices, cloves and all spice removed
1/4 cup garlic cloves or scapes
1/4 cup dill or dill flowers
1-2 dried chili pepper
Water to cover
Mix the ingredients together in a large quart size jar.
Leave uncovered for about a week in a dark cool place- not a refrigerator
Then cover and allow to ripen for about 2 months

I talk about my Zaatar Blueberry Chicken to anyone who will listen to me talk about food anymore. I love that it’s start to finish around 1/2 hour to make, love that it’s practically a one pot meal (cuz onions and parsley are a vegetable) and it combines my favorite Israeli flavors all without adding any processed sugars. It’s the perfect dish to share with your family for #yomhaatzmaut, White Meat and Blue-berries 😆 chock full of zaatar and drizzled with tahini. (Recipe in comments)
My husband and I grew up with completely different perspectives on yom haatzmaut. I came from a Bais Yaakov environment and barely knew the words to hatikva. I basically missed the holiday every year. My husband went to day school in Texas and had actually made Aliyah and was signed on to become a member of Tzahal before we met.
In our marriage and our lives Israel has become a place that has become full of meaning and emotion for the both of us. We met on the way on the way home from Israel, met again and decided to get married in Israel, went on our honeymoon there and have consistently made trips that have inspired us and maintained our growth. Outside NY yom haatzmaut represents freedom in many Jewish communities like the one we live in. Our children are growing up learning about it and celebrating it and we are proud of it. For us, it’s a day to celebrate our connection to Israel and our personal growth because of it. I think it’s a perspective that my grandparents would be proud of.

Remember when spring happened? K but also it’s freezing today so onion soup with cheesey toasts seemed like a good plan.
Pulled this recipe from @allrecipes, subbed bourbon for sherry and rich veggie stock for beef. My secret ingredient, a drizzle of balsamic vinegar over the top which totally pulls it all together.

It’s amazing what a little prep on Sunday does for my week. Sitting down for like 15 minutes and creating a plan for the week allows me to stay ahead and plan effectively. I always like to start my week making something quick and easy. Check out my story on how to make it this meal in 15 minutes and a peak at my prep!

We all stayed in today bc my son decided he was ready to start using the potty. I could totally pretend that I spent the day putting together this stunning strawberry-rhubarb pie to welcome in spring produce. But jokes I didn’t. I made this like two weeks ago with rhubarb from the freezer. I’m posting this because rhubarb season is upon us and y’all should get on this pie! #PSA Recipe from @epicurious here:
Adjustments: half crust recipe and saved half the rhubarb for topping. Topped the rhubarb with some Demerara sugar.
Currently wiping puddles of pee from the floor and pretending there’s a slice of this still waiting in the fridge.
