Sourdough Challah Round

The braiding technique is the easiest thing about these loaves, which are enriched with eggs, citrus-scented olive oil and sweet honey. The recipe takes time, but the reward is as sweet as my wish for you in the Jewish New Year.

Mexican Street Corn Guacamole

This flavorful twist on a classic guacamole is best made with an ancient culinary tool called a molcajete, but we can all thank Kenji López-Alt for an easy workaround with exceptional results!

Miraculous Mayo Marinade

Every now and again, a technique comes along and surprises me, upsetting everything I thought I knew about cooking. This is one of those techniques, and it’s so simple!

Pompatus of Love

True, peaches don’t grow on shrubs, but this delightful bourbon cocktail gets most of its personality from a peach “shrub” that’s so easy to make, I’m wondering why I never tried it before.

Not Quite Pizza Sauce

I had my sights on pizza sauce from the moment we knew we would have our first home-grown tomatoes in years. Everything came together beautifully. With one teeny problem…

Ratatouille Shakshuka

I never get tired of rearranging ratatouille—eggplant, zucchini, red bell pepper, onions and tomatoes—and this time, I married the classic Provencal stew with a classic Jewish breakfast dish.

Summer Tomato Water Martini

This super-simple twist adds a bright, fresh, summery flair to an otherwise classic martini cocktail, and I have found myself slicing up tomatoes just so I can make another one.
