Corned Beef and Cabbage

Saint Patricks Day is around the corner, so it’s officially Corned Beef and Cabbage season!…

The Ultimate Stovetop Mac and Cheese

oday on Food with Friends, I invited one of my oldest friends over to show me her skills! Hibah and I have known each other for years, but her prowess in the kitchen may or may not match her skills on the tennis court. Tune in to our video where we make the ultimate stovetop mac and cheese together!

Soy and Ginger Braised Brisket

Brisket is a classic cut of beef in Jewish homes, and so it was a staple in my home growing up. My Mom always made it on Fridays for us to enjoy over the weekend. I’ve updated mine with some of my favorite ingredients from my local Asian supermarket: high quality soy sauce and fresh ginger!

French Onion Mac and Cheese

The recipe begins the exact same way as French onion soup does, with a big pile of onions that reduces down into golden, caramelized goodness. Cooking the onions the right way takes time but it’s worth the wait! After that, you make a pretty standard mac and cheese sauce, or mornay, using provolone and gruyere, and then I add Dijon mustard and fresh thyme.

Vegetable Pot Pie

This is an entire meal in one dish! You get veggies, gravy, and carbs in every delicious bite.  The filling is jam packed with flavor, from classic carrot, celery, onion, and peas, to the less traditional wild mushrooms and potatoes.

Food with Friends: Vegetarian French Onion Soup

Lital is BACK! I’ve challenged her to make me her best French onion soup, then we swap spots and I make her mine.

Pear and Brie Tart

In my opinion, puff pastry makes anything fancy, and it’s easy to find a good quality one in the freezer section of almost any grocery store. Throw in a couple more store bought ingredients, like jam and a wheel of brie, and really the hardest part of this recipe is very thinly slicing your pears.

Warm Citrus Toddy

I start this recipe with a high quality spiced tea, which creates a super flavorful foundation for the rest of the drink. I choose a cardamom cinnamon variety here, but any spiced tea will work! Next, I use the zest and juice from three different citrus fruits: lemons, for tang and acidity, oranges, for sweetness, and blood oranges, for color.

Food with Friends: Apple Pie Stuffed French Toast

Today I show Kristin, beloved member of the Eitan Productions team and my personal assistant, how to make the most epic French toast ever! We start by simmering sweet and tart apples in warming spices to create the perfect filling, then stuff it inside of soft challah. It’s dipped in a creamy custard and griddled until GBAD (golden brown and delicious!), and served with a spiced whipped cream. Get ready to throw out any other French toast recipe!

Slow Roasted Salmon with Citrusy Arugula Salad

If I had to pick a favorite fish, I would have to say salmon! Not…
