This is the third column in the new series I’m writing exclusively for the Forward, my goal being to share with YOU exactly how I cook. My most popular cookbook, “Quick & Kosher: Recipes From The Bride Who Knew Nothing” (now in its 7th printing), features glimpses into the story that is my life and my penchant for feeding my family, fast. Almost a decade later, my style hasn’t changed. My life has only gotten busier, my cooking faster and my ingredients fewer.
Nothing says family fun like skewering beef for the “barbie” — Daddy just loved Crocodile Dundee and so an extra bite of beef goes to anyone that gets that reference.
A pretty and palette-pleasing way to make your chicken look as good as your beef at your next barbecue.
Food on a stick is fun for the whole fam. Both kid-friendly and adult-friendly, there’s nothin’ better than pleasing the entire crowd at once.
(JTA) — Several times a month Jeanette Chawki welcomes a handful of strangers into her Brooklyn home. There, the visitors learn about life in her native Lebanon, talk about their own backgrounds, and eat food — lots of it. Among the dishes visitors tried on a recent Saturday include freshly baked cheese-stuffed bread, tangy labneh with zaatar, chopped fattoush salad topped with fried pita bread and smoky babaganoush.
