Aronofsky Creations

I grew up in a Jewish household. Well, OK, sort of. My dad is Jewish and my mom is not. We learned about and celebrated some of the Jewish holidays like Passover and Chanukah. I grew up with foods like Matzo Ball Soup, Challah, Farfel Kugel, Cheese Blintzes, Latkes, Matzo Brei and many others. This never seemed odd to me. It actually seemed odd that this wasn’t normal.

Aronofsky Creations

I would think that every Jewish household that does a Seder has their own take on Charoset. The base that most will agree on is a mixture of apples and nuts but it can be so much more than that. Growing up our mixture was apple, nuts, and grape juice. There’s something about this sweet nutty mixture with the tang of the green onion that is actually quite enjoyable.

If you have read my blog you know I am a huge fan of The Gefilte Manifesto. Not many cookbooks can have hit after hit. I am usually happy with a cookbook if I get 3-4 successful recipes.

By that I mean they are well written, straight forward, and if you take your time you will end up with something delicious. This weeks dinner, Roasted Chicken with Barley and Vegetables, is a testament to the brilliance of their recipes.  Continue reading

Food Caricatures?

Working on my blog I keep running into situations that need “featured images” and or course I have to come up with something that reflects me as an artist.

I didn’t want to do pictures of dishes I have made since they will get their own posts when when having categories to sort through my posts I want images to support the categories. That’s when I came up with the idea for “food caricatures”.  Continue reading
