Healthy food and comfort food might sound mutually exclusive, but they are pretty much my menu goals and mainstays. Getting some of each onto the table is obvious, but combining the two is a serious challenge. 


This week we are trying to grab the two-in-one bite. An awesome apple crisp you keep picking at the edges of (you know, to make it neat), a chicken with delicious fruit and veggie stuffing, and that bone-warming goodness from a not-quite-potato kugel.

Incorporate them into your menu now- thank us later!

Happy cooking!



Moroccan Gefilte Fish by Yussi Weisz

This is not your Bubbe’s gefilte fish. Boil your gefilte loaf in a hot and hearty tomato sauce that will magically transform this Shabbat classic into a gourmet masterpiece!


Creamy Chicken Parsnip and Zucchini Soup by Chanie Nayman

This soup will take you through the winter, as it’s really a meal in a bowl! It’s healthy, filling, and super easy to make.


Colorful Red Cabbage Salad Two Ways by Elky Friedman

This salad is a staple for us on Shabbat, and the best part is that it’s a people pleaser-  whether your family prefers creamy or tangy, this salad is for you! 


Chicken with Fruit and Veggie Stuffing by Brynie Greisman

This chicken recipe has caramelized stuffing and superb sweet/savory seasoning. It’s really a meal-in-one that will be enjoyed by all.


Squash Potato Kugel from the Nitra Cookbook

Lighten up your standard potato kugel by replacing half the potatoes with zucchini. This is a totally gluten-free and product-free kugel that can be enjoyed all year round.


Healthy Apple Crisp by Beth Warren

A healthier apple crisp with a light oat topping. Even served with ice cream, this dessert weighs in at just about 250 calories per serving.
