Apple Roses

The perfect dessert for Rosh Hashana (or any other time you feel like an apple pastry)! Looks super fancy and isn’t a lot of work, but most importantly, it tastes delicious! My dad thinks it’s much better than many of the pastries he’s had at bakeries, which also means it doesn’t last long in my…

Peaches and cream oatmeal

It’s peach season right now and I’ve been LOVING it. Nothing is better than a juicy peach on it’s own in the summer, but I’m also loving it in dishes from salads to oatmeal, and this is by far the best version i’ve had of peaches in oatmeal! Thank you Gal Shua-Haim (@somethingnutritious on instagram)…

Peanut butter fudge pretzel bars

Saw this recipe on @somethingnutritious instagram and knew I had to try it since I love her recipes and peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite dessert combo! I don’t often have pretzel in my dessert either, so I was excited to try her recipe. I loved how these fudge bars turned out (minus the…

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Orange Tahini Sauce

I had this recipe saved to make for a while after seeing it on @soomfoods instagram. I love roasted brussels sprouts, tahini and oranges on their own, so I imagined I’d like this combo. Still, I ended up finding this dish to be even tastier than I expected! Note the original recipe uses blood oranges,…

Summer Corn Salad

I’m an avid follower of @edeneats on instagram (none of her recipes have ever failed me, she is fun to watch, and has an incredibly cute family), so I knew as soon as I saw this summer corn salad from her that I would love it! I made a few edits to her original recipe…

Mini Pavlovas

I have been making lots of homemade challah since the COVID situation got bad here in the US, and the recipe I use uses 4 egg yolks. Because I hate wasting ingredients, I tried to find recipes using egg whites (I got tired of egg white omelettes after a while). I’ve made this homemade pavlova…

Farro Breakfast Bowl

I love an avocado egg combo, and also have been trying to incorporate more farro into my cooking, so I was excited to try out this recipe from Cooking Light! It takes a little longer than other breakfast recipes I’ve made given the time it takes to cook the farro, so I recommend either cooking…

Homemade Hummus

Growing up in an Israeli family, I’ve been exposed to quality hummus my whole life. This has made me very picky with my hummus consumption. I’ve made and eaten many versions of hummus recipes and what I know is that nothing makes a bigger difference than using dried beans. I have hummus recipes with canned…

Vegan Lentil Moussaka

I haven’t ever had a chance to eat real moussaka given that I’ve been a vegetarian most of my life. However, my family members, who have had real moussaka and are generally skeptical of my meat free substitutions, loved this dish! This dish uses very little oil but is still very flavorful, and is also…
