Tomatoes-peppers sauce, or “Salata Kocha” (i.e. “cooked salad”), as it is known in Ladino, is a condiment that can be found in any Sephardic household at any given time. Continue reading
With wonderful abundance of fresh corn from the farm stand, I can’t help but buy and cook it often. On top of enjoying the corn on its own, I also end up incorporating it in assorted dishes. Continue reading
As I’m planning to prepare these wonderful patties today, I thought it would be a good idea to re-post the recipe, which was posted in the early days of the blog, for those of you who might have missed it.
I’m sure that even those of you who already saw the recipe, will enjoy this tasty remainder.
See you next week with a new recipe!
Whenever I find fresh, plump leeks at the vegetable store, I grab a few. Their delicate onion flavor is great in many dishes like soups, quiches, risotto, and especially in these tasty leek and potato patties – again from the fabulous Sephardic kitchen. I’m sure you’ll love them once you’ll make them.

While we can get mushrooms year round, for some reason, winter always seems like a more appropriate season for mushroom dishes.
This easy and tasty tart is a good example for such dishes. It is hearty yet not too heavy – just perfect for a cold days lunch or dinner.
This rustic dish, of beautifully roasted chicken with potatoes and other vegetables, makes entertaining of a fairly large group of guests an easy task. Everything is prepared in advance, and roasted in one pan about an hour before serving.
Crispy on the outside, soft and bursting with flavor on the inside, these tasty and colorful fritters are perfect as an appetizer, on a sandwich, or as a snack.
You can make the fritters smaller, for a finger-food option, or larger, to serve as a bed for fish or seafood dish, or poached eggs. Different herbs and seasoning can obviously be added, but personally I prefer not to use them here and let the flavor of the vegetables shine.
These easy and tasty mini bakes make use of any roasted vegetables you may have, whether especially made for the dish, or any leftovers you have from other dishes. The bakes contain no flour, which makes them perfect for gluten-free guests.

The original post from last year, included toppings such as fresh mozzarella cheese and Andouille sausage, along with peppers, onions and oyster mushrooms.
As I’m taking a few days off blogging, I once again opt to re-blogging an earlier post, which most of you probably have missed. It was posted 2 years ago – hard to believe!
See you next week with a new post.
Fresh corn season has just begun and it’s time to put this great and versatile ingredient into good use.
The best thing to do with fresh corn is, of course, to eat it as is. Yet, as the cooked corn isn’t as tasty after refrigerating, I usually end up scraping the kernels from leftover ears and use them in salads, pancakes or muffins.
The following muffins are easy to make and the result is tasty, colorful and nutritious. They are perfect for breakfast, brunch, light dinner or as a snack.
How to cook fresh corn: If you’re lucky enough to get some really fresh corn, make sure to not to overcook it. Just place it in a large pot, add water (don’t add salt, it will harden the kernels), cover and bring to the boil. Turn off the heat and let cool in the water. That’s all the cooking you…
