Rustic Strawberry Cheese Pie: A Voilá {beyond} Hallah Recipe


Rustic Strawberry Cheese Pie
For Leah Hadad, founder and president of Tribes-A-Dozen, the act of baking, particularly the act of baking bread, is charged with meaning. In the Jewish tradition, hallah bread is imbued with rich cultural and spiritual significance. Throughout her life, from the time she was a little girl growing up in Israel to her days as a lawyer in D.C., the act of baking and breaking bread with her family and friends has been one of acknowledging her interconnectedness with the world and people around her.

Toasted Coconut Pecan Amaranth Hot Cereal


Toasted Coconut Pecan Amaranth Hot Cereal

Caramelized Fennel and Kale Frittata


Fennel Frittata Relay Foods
As we continue to see early spring vegetables making their return, this week fennel and kale take center stage as main ingredients to this beautiful and rustic frittata.

Caramelizing the fennel before adding the eggs gives the frittata a slight sweetness — which really makes this dish. So, let's get cooking! Ingredients: (serves 4) 6 eggs 1 medium fennel bulb, cut in half & sliced thinly (reserve fronds) 1/2 medium onion, sliced thinly 1/2 cup kale, cut into thin ribbons 1/4 cup olive oil 2T heavy cream 1/4 cup fresh Read more …
