I love the process of making homemade challah, and have made various types, my favorite so far is my  whole wheat challah. If you’re favorite kind of challah is white bread and you are looking for a traditional white challah recipe, this is my favorite traditional challah bread recipe I have made yet, and is…

pickled red onions

I’d been seeing pickled red onions all over instagram, and they bring such a beautiful color to dishes! I’d been wanting to try them, and have tried two recipes so far (this recipe from Rachel Cooks that I’m sharing with you all is my favorite!) I’ve used them on top of avocado toasts and curries,…

homemade buckwheat granola

I LOVE buckwheat and homemade granola, but have never tried this combo together! I found a recipe online and didn’t have too high of expectations, but really loved how it turned out! I’ve eaten it alone as a snack, with milk as a cereal, as a yogurt topping along with other fruits, and even coated…

Homemade Almond Milk (and flour)

Have you ever looked at the back of an almond milk package and wondered, what are these funky ingredients? I surely have, which is why I try to avoid overly processed nut milks. I had a few friends growing up who told me their mom’s would make homemade almond milk and it tastes completely different…

Homemade Greek Yogurt Bagels

This delicious recipe is only 5 ingredients, and has many healthy nutrients because of the greek yogurt! I made these for my family a few months ago and they had no idea there was greek yogurt inside and enjoyed these bagels! These are slightly smaller than traditional bagels, so you might find yourself eating more…

Whole Wheat Challah

Challah is definitely my favorite bread, and I decided to make this recipe with ingredients I had at home (I only had whole wheat flour). I wasn’t expecting for this whole wheat version to taste as delicious as it did, especially since I made many revisions to the original recipe I used from Cooking with Tantrums….

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Right now the best soup I have EVER made. Thank you ginabnutrition for this recipe (found on her instagram). The fall flavors of this soup are just incredible, and I love that this soup uses seasonal ingredients. I made a few adjustments based on ingredients I had at home to her original recipe (adjustments will…

Homemade Lachuch

Was too lazy to go out and buy bread on this rainy day, so I decided to make my own using ingredients I already had at home. I’ve been wanting to make Jamie Geller’s Lachuch (yemenite flatbread) so I figured this was a perfect opportunity. Here’s her recipe (you can find my additions below the…
