    Brisket, kugel and challah get a lot of Rosh Hashanah love, but to me, the Jewish New Year will always be the “apples and honey” holiday. This sweet pairing is the first thing most people—both those who celebrate it and those who don’t—think of when they consider... Read More

    New York City has more than 500 food trucks. Boston has almost 60. And now, Israel has one. In July, the “Auto-Ochel” (or “FoodTrip”) hit the streets of Jerusalem on its first stop of a three-week run. Part food truck and part pop up, this mobile kitchen has been stopping... Read More

    If you’ve ever cracked open a pomegranate, you know just how many seeds it’s capable of holding. There appear to be hundreds. And that’s exactly why pomegranates are eaten on the second night of Rosh Hashanah. In addition to serving the role of “new fruit,”... Read More

    We know everyone appreciates—and loves—the traditional Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur recipes: brisket, apple cake, bagels and lox…you know the drill. But this year we wanted to bring some of those holiday flavors (well, mostly the apple flavor) into the realm of adult... Read More

    I have to admit, it was tough to recruit tasters for my initial hot dog tasting. That’s because instead of offering a plethora of juicy, kosher dogs like I’d originally planned, the field ended up being dominated by fake-meat alternatives masquerading as meat, but falling short of... Read More

    Last weekend I participated in what I hope will become a new summer tradition: I attended a barn concert. It’s exactly what it sounds like. My parents’ neighbors are major supporters of the arts and also happen to have a beautiful, open-air wooden barn on their property. Every summer,... Read More

    I’m in the throes of what I’ve dubbed the “Summer of Love.” I’ve hit the age where my Facebook feed is dominated by photos of engagements and newborns, and the only snail mail I get is wedding invitations and baby announcements. In the next three months, I’m... Read More

    I tend to get in a rut when it comes to summer salads. I forget that “salad” doesn’t mean it has to have a base of leafy greens. Sure, some of the good ones do, but that definition just limits your options. The term is much more broad and becomes even more far-reaching in the... Read More

    America’s not the only one with a birthday today. Twenty-nine years ago, my parents hurriedly left their town’s Independence Day parade after my mom went into labor with me. (I like to think they were given a police escort to drive through the parade route, but the truth is they... Read More

    Friday, June 21, was the summer solstice, which is the official start of summer and the longest day of the year. (And we’re not talking “long” in the “I’ve been in line at the RMV all morning—longest day ever” Facebook status kind of way.) Last Friday,... Read More
