Roasted Eggs

When I think of Passover and food for the Seder table, one of the first things that comes to mind are these unusually beautiful roasted eggs. Eggs, being so symbolic, deserve to be presented in some special way. Oven roasting them results in egg shells beautifully colored ...

Paleo Rice

Several months back I started to hear the word "paleo" cropping up more and more. Not knowing too much about it, except that it was the caveman diet, I purchased a paleo book. Sorry, didn't notice the name, but I do remember it was heavy!

White Bean Dip with Sundried Tomato and Feta

But instead I begin composing a salad in my head, contemplating what ingredients I have on hand.

Father’s Day BBQ

Looking for ideas that are new, yet old, I recalled a great barbecue chicken recipe I used to make -- but haven't for years. After hunting around and being unable to locate it, I called Linda, who through the years seems to have held on to all the various recipes I've played around with, usually jotted down on a random scrap of paper, now buried in a box ... somewhere.

Tomato and Feta Cheese Tilapia Bake

My niece, Alana, shared a wonderfully simple recipe for Shrimp with Tomato and Feta Cheese. It sounded delicious -- and great for a quick dinner with good presentation. However, having a kosher kitchen, it needed some modification. I'm used to switching things up; recipes are really just guidelines, with unlimited adaptions. I substituted the shrimp with tilapia, used a can of diced San Marzano tomatoes
