Today I am sharing Kenden Alfond’s new book Beyond Chopped Liver: 59 Jewish Recipes Get a Health Makeover. This is Kenden’s third book and I am really very impressed with her work. The recipes are clean, clever and healthy and the photos are absolutely exquisite. Read on for more details and a recipe for that amazingly fudgy flourless chocolate cake that is on the upper right hand corner of the cover!
We love baking around here and we always make cookies for Santa and these just came out of the oven. What are they? Cowboy cookies! They are like a cross between chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies but with some extra goodness. Read on for the recipe!
After 6 months of writing and cooking for my new cookbook, I am happy to say I put it to bed! It will be coming out in May 2021. As we get closer, I will share more details but now that it’s done, I can finally dive into all of the new vegan titles that have come out in the last few months. And I am super excited about The Plant Protein Revolution Cookbook: Supercharge Your Body with More Than 85 Delicious Vegan Recipes Made with Protein-Rich Plant-Based Ingredients by Robin Robertson! This book is fantastic and timely and packed with recipes that answer the age old question, “But, where do you get your protein?”
The summer of 2020 is winding down and we are preparing to go back to school. In the words of Jerry Garcia, “what a long strange it’s been!” The last 6 months have been life altering to say the least. Being in lockdown in an apartment in New York City because of a raging pandemic was insane but I wrote a new book, spent every waking hour with my husband and son, and was forced to do nothing when there was nothing to do. On some level, I am grateful for that time but as soon as lockdown ended in June, we started taking trips outside of the city. We spent some time out east on Long Island where we hit up the farm stands and got lots of fresh corn and tomatoes and made several trips to the Hudson Valley, one of our favorite areas. This last time, my plan included picking blackberries!
