I won a cookbook and what a cookbook, it is. It is perfect for us, as we work on eating more healthily. The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen by Levana Kirschenbaum is a fabulous book with beautiful photos, clear instructions and the yummiest recipes. I must note that you do not have to be kosher to love this book. All recipes are for all of us.
There are about 350 pages in this book, each one filled with delicious recipes and good pointers. There are beautiful photos but I would have liked more.
I won this book from Joy of Kosher, a site, I have enjoyed for a while. Jamie is a young woman who has made her mark in the world of kosher cooking. Her site has tons of recipes and I suggest you go over and see for yourself, how much fun you can have there. These are Jamie's books and another one is in the making.
Back to Levana who has a warm approach to cooking, I plan to write a review of this book after, I make more recipes. Right now, I just made muffins, muffins that my husband has not stopped talking about. I generally make muffins weekly and hubby is always pleased but this time, he was much more than pleased. Maybe, it is the oats in the muffins.
Levana gives a muffin recipe with dozens of alternatives one has in making it. That makes it fun. You can stick to the recipe, as is or make some changes. I left out the apples and used blueberries.
Levana's Muffins (adjusted)
Canola oil spray
2/3 cup Rice Dream
2 large eggs
2/3 Canola oil
1 cup sugar
2 cups blueberries
1 cup old fashioned oats
3 cups gluten-free brown rice flour mixture
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup almonds
1 tablespoon cardamom (I used slightly less)
Preheat oven 375 degrees F.
Spray 18 muffin molds with oil spray.
Combine the Rice Dream, eggs, oil and sugar in a large bowl.
Combine oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cardamom in a separate bowl.
Add dry mixture to wet mixture. Do not overmix but do mix so ingredients are well blended.
Pour batter into greased muffins pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center, comes out clean.

It says, "thai" so I have to like the Thai Chicken San Choy Bau that we are making this week in our Donna Hay Wednesday group. It was a bit spicy and the chopped chicken was a nice change of pace. Kayte selected this recipe from On the Shelf on page 124. I tried it with the greens and it was very good and then I put it on spaghetti and it was spectacular. My toddler granddaughter even liked it. Must have been the hot sauce. I used romaine for the greens and I subbed in red pepper and added some Sirracha to spice it up to make up for the real chilis. Do check out the other cooks' dishes at our Wednesday with Donna Hay site.
Another week, another vegetable for our Power Food group, a bunch of women who strive for healthy eating with the most delicious dishes. Each blog is inspiration . Each week, we choose a recipe based on the power food which comes from the book, Power Foods, 150 delicious recipes with the 38 healthiest ingredients from the editors of Whole Living magazine. Brussels sprouts like broccoli and cabbage are cruciferous. This group offers a unique composition of antioxidants that may provide several health benefits. Brussels sprouts are low in calories and offer protein, vitamins and minerals to help build a healthy human. My first issue with brussels sprouts is that it took me years to spell it correctly. Each time, it came up, in writing, and I admit, that was not too often, I would stare into space asking myself does brussel get an S, at the end or is it sprout that gets the S. For some reason, I could not remember that both end with that S. I am happy to tell you, I overcame thi

That week, we concentrated on carrots. I like to check out our vegetable, not only for health benefits, but also for the names of their sisters. Carrots are related to parsnips, fennel, parsley, anise, caraway, cumin and dill. I didn't have a clue about many of these. I, have never seen carrots of other colors or at least, if I had, I didn't know, they were carrots. I am going to a good produce store, looking for purple or red carrots, to start my search. It is fun, shopping when purposely looking for new vegetables. I have definitely expanded my horizons. When, I was thinking about what to make with carrots, I
