Blessings to the Entire World!

Due to technical issues, I have been unable to post all my Sukkot (Sukkos) and Simchat Torah (Simchas Torah) recipes in time for the holidays. I have combined some of them into a single post; simply click on each link, Beautiful People, and enjoy! https://koolkosherkitchen.wordpress.com/2017/10/04/tofu-can-bite-too// https://koolkosherkitchen.wordpress.com/2017/07/20/stuffed-peppers-where-is-the-beef/ https://koolkosherkitchen.wordpress.com/2016/10/23/silver-chair-polygamy-and-mount-sinai/ Every day of this seven-day festival, culminating by…

Penne Tofu with Impostor Alfredo

This is my humble contribution to the National “Italian Food” Day, as announced by Foodimentarycom. Where do newlyweds go on their honeymoon? To all kinds or romantic places, right? And what is more romantic than Rome, where even the word romantic comes from? Imagine a legendary couple (the term celebrity wasn’t trendy yet), both of them world famous movie…

Pumpkin Boats

Since https://foodimentary.com/october-holidays informs me that today is a National Pumpkin Day, I am repeating one of our favorite pumpkin recipes. Enjoy, Beautiful People! Every day, around five in the afternoon, there is a traffic jam on the bridge (AKA causeway) connecting Miami Beach to the mainland. Locals are used to it, we explain to worried guests,…

Lost Boat and Web Developer

This is my husband piloting our boat. The boat was torn off its mooring during Irma. Someone claimed that he had seen it first stuck under the bridge, then being towed by either the Marine Patrol, or the Coast Guard. Into the SLUDGE whirling in Biscayne Bay, went the dinghy that had been tied to…

Tofu Can Bite, Too!

When Avrohom (Abraham) Our Father was traveling in the desert, he would make sure to position his tent at the crossroads and make entrances on all four sides, open to travelers coming from every direction. He would then treat them to a sumptuous feast, making sure every guest was offered food of his preference. After…

“All You Need Is Love” – Zoodles, Part 3. Toodles.

You’ve heard all kinds of jokes about Jewish Time. It is tacitly assumed that “standard Jewish time” is about thirty minutes later than regular time. For instance, if an invitation is issued for, say, three o’clock in the afternoon, it’s a good idea to clarify whether you are expected there on time or on standard…

Purple Cake for a Purple Friend

Although Roman Emperor Aurelian was a great military commander and “Restorer of the World” (Restitutor Orbis), he was far from generous with his wife. Having “restored” the world by conquering vast territories and defeating armies of those who foolishly refused to be conquered,  he still begrudged Lady Ulpia a trifle – Tyrian purple silk shawl….

Meatless Meat Pies

Two teenage boys meet and strike a friendship that lasts for decades. One of them, small and quick, with a sly smile and a witty word, is running around a Moscow marketplace peddling meat pies. The other one, tall and gangly, is strolling through the market followed by a small entourage of richly attired older…

Tofu Fingers and Muli Stir Fry

Before you ask, yes, that’s a tiny Murano cat that found her way into the serving bowl – cats! You only turn your back on them for a moment, and who knows where they end up! During Stalin’s times, in the mid-30th in Soviet Russia, there was a patriotic female factory workers’ movement called mnogostanochnitza…

Pumpkin Boats

Every day, around five in the afternoon, there is a traffic jam on the bridge (AKA causeway) connecting Miami Beach to the mainland. Locals are used to it, we explain to worried guests, nothing alarming is happening, it’s only the boats. Somewhere on that narrow bridge, I am sitting in traffic inching along, with the…

Penne Tofu with Impostor Alfredo

Where do newlyweds go on their honeymoon? To all kinds or romantic places, right? And what is more romantic than Rome, where even the word romantic comes from? Imagine a legendary couple (the term celebrity wasn’t trendy yet), both of them world famous movie stars, “America’s Sweetheart” and “The King of Hollywood,”  enjoying their honeymoon…
