Bunuelos (or Bimuelos) with Honey – Sephardic Hanukkah Donuts – Recipe and a Great New Donut Cookbook

When my friend Lara Ferroni sent me a review copy of her new book, Doughnuts: Simple and Delicious Recipes to Make at Home, my kiddo and I spent a fun hour on the couch, leafing through and dog-earing the pages of all of the delicious desserts we want to make. When we were done, pretty much …

Real Tabbouleh – Recipe

Tabbouleh is one of those dishes that usually loses its identity when it crosses the oceans. In the Middle East, it is an herb salad with a little bit of bulghur wheat for texture. In the United States, it usually becomes a soggy bulghur salad with a sad speck of parsley for garnish.

Figs and Ricotta – Recipe

I'm really enjoying this theme of using simple but fantastic ingredients and doing almost nothing to them. Much like the shaved summer squash salad of a few weeks ago, these perfectly ripe figs were spectacular with a bare minimum of manipulation. I think I would like to do a whole dinner party where every course …
