Garden Focaccia

During quarantine, baking has become super common, even for those who I know regularly avoid the kitchen. Even as someone who baked before this crazy time, I am finding myself baking much more frequently (also because I’m now with my parents, I’m I can share my baked creations with them, so my baked goods go…

Vegan Black Bean Burgers

One of my favorite food bloggers I follow on instagram, Rachel Mansfield, posted an image with her homemade black bean burgers. I love her dessert and breakfast recipes, but haven’t ever made a savory dish of hers. The black bean burgers were the first savory recipe I ever tried of Rachel’s, and I have to…

Banana Cinnamon Roll Bread

Through this program I got to explore the melting pot of Israeli cuisine alongside peers from North and Latin America. The trip was a whirlwind of smells, sights and adventure, and I wanted to share my…

Mint Pesto Pasta

Today at Whole Foods I discovered Sprouted Lily Pasta for the first time, and decided I would try it out! The lily shape was gorgeous, and sprouted grains have many health benefits, so I figured this new discovery was worth a try. I had plenty of mint packages that were going to spoil soon, so…

So Hanukkah happens to fall in the middle of finals season, so I haven’t been able to attend any of the exciting Hanukkah events Miami has to offer yet… I’ve been feeling a little out of the holiday spirit, so I decided to take a study break and make my own! I did not have…
