  • A reminder: Don’t pass over the post-seder meals

    April 7, 2014 | 2:47 pm

    Planning Passover meals is always a wonderful challenge. For the seders, most of us focus on traditional family recipes because they are tried and proven, and because everyone likes them (and often asks for these favorites dishes).

    But what about the remaining six days of meals?...

  • Cooking with wine for Passover

    By Judy Zeidler

    April 2, 2014 | 2:19 pm

    Wine is an important part of the observance of Passover — at least four cups are poured during the seder service. I’m sure we all have noticed how our wine tastes have changed since childhood, when only the sweet, syrupy wines were available.

    But these days, our family and...

    By Rabbi Debbie Prinz

    April 2, 2014 | 2:11 pm

    Passover’s causes have always included freedom, peoplehood and monotheism, and Passover’s chocolate layers new concerns onto these age-old themes.

  • Fit OUT not in

    By Tera Greene

    March 2, 2014 | 6:23 am

    I am about to start my fourth week as a student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.  

    As I learn new ways to fit OUT and go against the "norm" of being sad and sick, I am finding myself becoming more whole through my education - and I am EXCITED!

  • How To Stuff Your Face and Stay Thin Over the Holidays

    By Elana Horwich

    December 18, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Eat only celery! Just kidding. Like that’s an option. People who give that kind of advice clearly could never be good in bed.

    We warm-blooded people are all going to eat a lot…as this is a time to relax, be with loved ones and stuff our happy faces.

    I often talk about how food...

  • Chocolate freedoms of Chanukah and Thanksgiving

    November 26, 2013 | 3:22 pm

    The freedom food of chocolate should star in desserts for Chanukah and Thanksgiving. Puritans seeking asylum in North America and Jews hiding from the Inquisition in New Spain (Mexico) had their first encounters with chocolate in the 17th century. Chocolate paves the religious...

    The Basics of Quinoa

    I make the best quinoa in town, and considering I live in the capital of quinoa, Los Angeles, this is quite an accomplishment

    My tricks are:

    1. Make your life easy and buy a rice cooker. (buy here)
    2. Dress the quinoa while it is hot and serve it while...

    By Judy Zeidler

    August 28, 2013 | 12:40 pm

    Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is considered a High Holy Day, but it’s also a happy holiday, full of hope and optimism.

    I am always impressed by the fact that food plays such an important part during one of the most sacred of Jewish holidays. The traditional foods — apples,...

  • The Braniac Muffin [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    August 26, 2013 | 9:00 am

    It doesn’t take a brainiac to know that bran is good for you. Bran muffins, on the other hand, are a different story. The problem with most bran muffins is threefold:

    one: The bran used is often harsh and can make you feel flatulent, to use the correct terminology. When consumed...

    July 5, 2013 | 6:51 am

    Photographing for "Loving Aunt Ruth" turned out to be delicious and somewhat fattening.  Well worth the pounds!  Aunt Ruth is a marvelous cook with a recipe collection.  Yes, these are her cards lovingly protected in plastic, because she either cooked for friends, a temple...

  • Daddy Cake

    By Honey Lazar

    June 25, 2013 | 5:56 am

    One of the wonderful things about asking those we love, those who have cooked for us for a recipe, is that it always comes with a story.  

    I asked Aunt Ruth for a cake recipe, and I learned all about how her mother made "Daddy Cake" for her father every week.  His own cake!  She...

  • The Stardust Margarita [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    May 9, 2013 | 9:00 am

    It’s a little known fact in the world that I used to work as a bartender. If you want to garner experiences that will shape the unique spiritual being that you are, it is imperative that at least once in your life you work nights for a raging alcoholic boss.

    For me it happened at...

  • BBQ Tofu Salad

    By Arielle Adelman

    April 22, 2013 | 9:50 am

    My meat loving-iron pumping brothers often refer to tofu as “hippie food”. I guess I can’t argue that going to a steakhouse and ordering a bone-in Tofu filet would be rather anti-climactic, however, there are plenty of ways to prepare tofu that are easy, healthy, great tasting, and...

  • The Pretty Protein Shake

    By Arielle Adelman

    April 21, 2013 | 8:35 am

    I used to be so scared of protein shakes. All I knew was that my muscle hungry brothers had a habit of drinking them like a dog lapse up water in the dead of summer, and that just did not seem congruent (or appetizing) with my female mind or body.  I could not understand how they...

  • Spaghetti Squash Reinvented

    By Arielle Adelman

    April 19, 2013 | 1:17 pm

    Based on my not-so-scientific poll, it turns out that spaghetti squash is a very polarizing vegetable; people either really love it or really hate it!  I quickly realized that the people in the “hater” category were (1) expecting it to taste like the gluten-ess Italian dish that...

  • The Trader Joe’s List

    By Arielle Adelman

    April 17, 2013 | 9:34 am

    Trader Joe’s is by far the most fortunate thing to happen to mankind.  This guy, Trader Joe, figured out how to provide us with quality, affordable, innovative, (for the most part) healthy, practical, convenient, and delicious groceries.  After 20 something years, I am still in awe...

  • Rosemary Nutty Popcorn

    By Arielle Adelman

    April 11, 2013 | 9:15 am

    Based on some very unscientific research, I have found that most people struggle with making mindful and healthy decisions concerning afternoon hunger pains. This is the time when people most often visit the vending machine or give into the cupcakes that are in the office kitchen,...

  • A novel meeting of Israeli, Socal culinary worlds

    April 10, 2013 | 11:34 am

    Given the similarities between their respective climates and diverse populations, the food cultures of Israel and Southern California would seem to have much in common. Chefs Assaf Granit and Uri Navon of Jerusalem’s lauded Machneyuda restaurant are about to find out firsthand...

  • Divine Intervention: Strawberry Greek Yogurt with Peanut Butter Pretzel Crumble

    By Arielle Adelman

    April 4, 2013 | 10:22 am

    I hesitate to talk about the fact that I am no longer eating refined sugar because I know how annoying it is to listen to on the other end. But the truth is, I have never physically or mentally felt better.  If you like sugar and can eat it in moderation, then by all means go ahead...

  • Save the self-pity, choices abound for Passover meals

    March 26, 2013 | 11:44 am

    For the many who feel overwhelmed by Passover because of the demands of cooking without leaven, a word or two: That should not be an obstacle.

  • Rosemary Almond Cake with Olive Oil and Orange Zest [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    March 19, 2013 | 9:00 am

    For years I had a recurring nightmare that I find myself in the Sienese countryside where Chianti grapes display themselves in Bacchanalian rows, inviting an aimless wanderer, me, in to taste a bite of their intoxicating deep purple fruit.

    With a bunch of grapes ripped off the...

    March 13, 2013 | 7:08 am

    It’s late afternoon and the staff at Got Kosher? Café is under the impression that the kitchen isn’t yet able to prepare brik until dinner service begins. “So, you want brik?” owner Alain Cohen asks. Dressed in all black, with a professorial air and solid build, Cohen’s question...

    By Judy Zeidler

    February 13, 2013 | 8:40 am

  • Rebooting Bubbie

    By Julie Gruenbaum Fax

    November 29, 2012 | 3:41 pm

    Who’s your bubbie

    When it comes to food, she might not be the short, Yiddish-speaking grandmother that comes to mind.

    “Every family has a recipe that it holds dear, and every recipe has a person behind it, and typically, yes, it is your Yiddish bubbie,” said David Sax, author...
