Thousands of women swear by this challah recipe and make it for Shabbat every week. It has just the right amount of sweetness, a soft and doughy consistency, with a rich flavor. 


Moroccan Salmon by Bracha Jaffe

This spin on the classic Moroccan fish is made with salmon and potatoes and is a family favorite!


Caramelized Onion, Honey, and Chestnut Chicken by Tammy Israel


Full of flavor and easy to put together- you can’t go wrong with adding this chicken, caramelized onion and chestnut dish to your menu.


Last-Minute Miami Ribs by Estee Kafra


Miami ribs are beef short ribs (flanken) that have been sliced into thin strips across the bone by the butcher. They cook low and slow and are fall-off-the-bone good!


World’s Easiest Deli Roll from the Dining In Cookbook

This deli roll is simple to make and a great favorite with kids. It’s so easy, they can make it themselves!


Vegetable Kishka from the Nitra Cookbook

Kishka (also known as stuffed derma) is a traditional Jewish Ashkenazi stuffing made of flour or matzo meal, schmaltz, and spices. This recipe uses oil in place of schmaltz, making it parve, and adds carrots, celery, and onion to the mix.


Best-Dressed Quinoa Veggie Salad by Brynie Greisman

This salad is outstanding. A medley of quinoa, roasted veggies, and add-ins, with an awesome dressing to bring it all together.


Mediterranean Hearts of Palm “Pasta” Salad with Avocado and Basil by Victoria Dwek

Hearts of palm spaghetti is a fantastic low-carb substitute for regular wheat pasta. The hearts of palm “noodles” have a firm but tender texture and a mild flavor, and they will absorb plenty of the lemon vinaigrette in this salad.  


Supreme Kokosh Cake from the Nitra Cookbook

Kokosh cake is the babka’s denser, richer, gooey-er cousin, another traditional pastry among Hungarian Jews. This recipe includes EIGHT filling variations to enjoy from!
