Streusel Challah

There is something magical about biting into a piece of sweet, warm, challah on a Friday night, especially if it has sugary crumbs on top!

I was first introduced to this recipe at my friend’s Sarah’s house. I have not eaten it in over a year, and randomly my husband and I were reminiscing about Sarah’s delicious streusel challah! And so I did a quick internet search and found a streusel recipe that received great reviews and did not use margarine. Here is the link to the site:

Low-fat spinach lasagna

It’s so thrilling to FINALLY be posting a dairy recipe! WAHOO!!

I knew the “Low-fat” phrase would catch your eye. It always does. There is something about low-fat food that is just appealing. This lasagna calls for low-fat cottage cheese, plus spinach and mushrooms! C’mon that definitely puts a healthy twist on lasagna. It’s my mother’s recipe, and she always served it with breaded flounder or salmon and a fresh salad; the quintessential example of a balanced meal! However, when I make lasagna, it’s generally JUST lasagna, and I don’t feel too bad about it because the veggies are in the dish.

Peach Berry Cobbler

This is my signature summer dish! I’m really excited to see the sun…it’s been a while. The thing is that the stores are not selling peaches and blueberries yet. Maybe it’s because of shimita or perhaps it’s just too early? I’m not sure. I used canned peaches and frozen blueberries this time around, but I generally use fresh fruit for this recipe!
