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.

Food with Friends: Chicken and Waffles

—chicken and waffles! Let me tell you his version of it was just as interesting as you could have guessed. Check out my recipe down below!

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.

New York Thin Crust vs. Chicago Deep Dish Pizza

Today I take on the pizza question of the century—Which reigns supreme, Chicago Deep Dish style pizza or New York Thin Crust style pizza? Each have their own fervent following, but I’ve developed recipes of my own (although I had help from Jeff Mauro from Food Network for the Deep Dish crust) to come to my own conclusions on the Pizza Battle of 2022. Check out the recipes below if you’d like to do a battle of your own!
