  • Thanksgivukkahcheesecoins_large
    These cheesy crackers couldn’t be easier to throw together, with their egg-free dough and food-processor mixing method. I recommend making a double batch—serve some for a holiday appetizer, and save the rest to use as the “coins” in a game of dreidel. Cheddar Cheese... Read More

  • Thanksgivukkahkugel_large
    In order to get some pumpkin flavor in every bite, I used two types: pureed and seeds. The pumpkin puree gets mixed into the filling along with some other seasonal flavorings (brown sugar and cinnamon), and the seeds get chopped and incorporated into the topping. Not your average kugel, but... Read More

    I could try to put a Halloween spin on this recipe. I could say it’s scary good, or talk about how you fry them up and then dress them up in a costume—OK, more like a mixture—of honey and Sriracha. I could also make some Red Sox-related reference, like calling this recipe a real... Read More

  • Applesquashsoup1_large
    Until the last few years, I was never big on soups. They always seemed like a sorry, one-note excuse for a meal—especially the pureed ones. I wanted a more diverse texture instead of spoonful after spoonful of the same thing. I’m not sure what happened between then and now, but... Read More

    Israeli food is changing. According to food writer and celebrity chef Gil Hovav, his native country’s food “used to be a melting pot. Now it’s a zoo.” Hovav traveled from Tel Aviv to Boston last weekend to participate in the second annual Let’s Talk About Food... Read More

    We’ve entered the post-summer, pre-holidays lull. This is the time I try to eat sensibly, knowing all bets are off come Thanksgiving (or, this year, Thanksgivukkah). And then Christmas. And then New Year’s Eve. October is basically my last healthy hurrah until January. But the same... Read More

    I’ve found that the best way to warm up a house is to invite friends over for dinner. The crisp fall air doesn’t stand a chance against lively conversation and a hot oven.  But a word of warning to any potential dinner-party attendee: I don’t have much of a sweet... Read More
