I’m so excited to show off the first meal that we made from Jerusalem. This cookbook is so amazing. I received it as a Christmas gift after hearing its praises sung from the rooftops by every food writer I can think of. Now I’m joining the chorus. I love this book. This is not sponsored, […]

In my humble opinion, tarts are just plain radical. You make a crust with 4 ingredients and smoosh it into the shape of a pan. You put some veggies in. You pour a three-ingredient custard over the top and bake. And then it looks (and tastes) awesome! Tarts are near the top of the list […]
