Yid.Dish: Chilled Peanut-Sesame Noodles

By Dina Green

This is a wonderful Parve side dish that I’ve been making for the past five years. Ask anyone in my family and they’ll tell you it’s a favorite at home. (My dad especially loves it). This recipe is simple and delicious and can be made up to a day in advance.Read More


Yid.Dish: Dill Pesto

By Roxanne B. Sukol MD

Yid.Dish: Beer Bread (AKA Emergency-Use-Up-My-Beer-Before-Passover Bread)

By Rella Kaplowitz

I hosted a St. Patrick’s Day dinner party last week. We drank a lot of beer, but I still have plenty left that I’d like to use up before Passover (Michelle, I accept your cupboard cleaning challenge). There are many wonderful uses for beer (like Guinness Braised London Broil), but my current favorite is beer bread. Not only is it the easiest bread you will ever make, it’s so delicious no one will believe you didn’t spend more than 2 minutes dumping the ingredients together and throwing it in the oven.Read More

Yid.Dish: Nettle Mushroom Soup

By Liz Schwartz

Despite their sting, nettles are a great thing to eat (once you cook them, the sting goes away). Nettles have been a staple of traditional medicines for centuries, but they’re also amazingly (for a vegetable) high in protein, and a delicious way to get some greens in your diet during the winter.Read More


Yid.Dish: Quinoa, a Passover Game-Changer

By Rella Kaplowitz

It is apropos that the Whole Grains Council has declared quinoa as the March Grain of the Month, as we begin Passover on the night of March 29th. Quinoa, a rockstar of a grain in its own right with tons of nutritional value, made its debut as a Passover friendly grain just a few years ago, forever changing the way many people cook for the holiday.Read More


Yid.Dish: Cashew Chicken & Snow Peas

By Dena Zaldua-Hilkene

I stumbled upon a recipe for Cashew Chicken from the inimitable Martha Stewart and decided to give it a whirl – and my own flair. And to tell the truth, it is delicious and happily graces our Friday night Shabbat table pretty often.Read More
