Maple Glazed Doughnuts Holes with Kosher Candied Bacon

This recipe is my favorite for Chanukah. The dough is quick and easy to make and you can freeze any left-over dough if you don’t want to fry up the entire batch. In the past few years kosher “bacon” has become so popular. I love to make candied “bacon” and use as croutons in salads […]

Taco Tuesday

The term Taco Tuesday has become so popular on the social media food groups so I decided to introduce it into my family for Tuesday night dinners. We have made all kinds, from deli and coleslaw tacos to pizza tacos, but the favorite is when we use fish. I set out a few filling choices […]

Vietnamese Roll

Last week I had the good fortune to accompany my husband on one of his business trips to Phoenix, Arizona. I am a true travel junkie and am always on the lookout for any opportunity to travel. Whenever we travel I use the free app called “Kosher GPS” — which locates Kosher restaurants, minyanim and […]

Homemade Pizza with Pesto Sauce, Blue Marble Cheese and Caramelized Pears

Picture by Melinda Strauss If you aren’t living in the 5 Towns in New York, you may have missed this recipe which I developed for Gourmet Glatt. They published it in the quarterly newsletter called Market To Table. I want to share it with my friends across the world. I also have a Simanim Ceviche […]

Fish and Chips

People always ask me for examples of Australian cuisine. I usually respond with these three: (1) a Vegemite sandwich, (2) meat pies and (3) fish and chips. Fish and chips, which is so popular in Australia came from the influence of the British. As a kosher food blogger, I recently was trying to develop a […]

Fried Green Tomatoes with Herbed Goat Cheese

Photo by Melinda Strauss As a Kosher personal chef, I often get asked what my favorite food is. The answer, invariably, is always tomatoes. Ever since I was a young girl, I have always loved tomatoes (there are over 100 varieties of tomatoes and I love them all!). To me, there is no better snack […]

Cheesey Corn Fritters

Corn fritters are a perfect summer side dish. This recipe is a perfect balance of Sincerely Brigitte’s authentic Jalapeno-Cilantro flavored cheese with sweet corn. I am very excited to present this awesome summer dish that will lift the palate sensation to a new level! It makes a beautiful presentation at a brunch, or any meal […]

Cheese Latkes for the 9 days

As the 9 days is fast approaching, I am getting so excited to make lots of different dairy dishes. There is nothing more amazing than latkes right out of the frying pan. My mother makes the best cheese latkes. Whenever she visits us from Australia, my house smells of these Ricotta Cheese Latkes every Sunday […]

Corn fritters with pulled brisket and spicy jicama slaw

I am constantly striving to develop new recipes for appetizers for my family and guests, as well as for my catering business. In addition to being tasty, I want the dishes to look scrumptious as well – since, as the expression goes, “you eat with your eyes”. The combination of the corn with the pulled […]
