Chocolate Soufflé

Chocolate Soufflé

Be BOLD! Do not be afraid of the word soufflé! Meals with lamb, spring greens, eggs are where my recipes bring Passover and Easter together in acknowledging both traditions. The Jews serve unleavened bread, and in our house, I simply avoid gluten altogether. Soufflés are fun and easy. Don’t be intimidated by them as...

Wild Rice and Mushroom Stuffing (Dairy Free & Gluten Free)

My son Oren asks for this every Thanksgiving. Make your gluten-free corn bread a few days before. Cut into small squares (croutons) and allow to harden. You can speed up the process by placing in a 200 degree oven for 1 hour. This will easily serve 14-16. 2 cups extra virgin olive oil 4...

Holiday Tips for Dietary Challenges

Holiday Tips for Dietary Challenges

This is the time when family and friends gather to share a traditional meal—and some of them bring their not-so-traditional diets along. I am often asked by friends or clients what they should do when they have a guest with a certain dietary restriction: vegan, gluten free or dairy free. I find any meal can be adapted for...

Apple Squash Soup

Apple Squash Soup

Apple Squash Soup This is a perfect recipe. It freezes well and is just perfect as the days grow shorter and the fields slow in their growing season! The flavors sweeten and develop over the following days with this soup.  I often use chicken stock when I am at home, but in my kitchen,...
