Susie is here to tell us her LAST LICKS…
I am finishing up the recipes for my next cookbook. Kosher by Design Cooking Coach and am obsessed with a Chili Garlic Cauliflower that I can't get just right. I am on version #6, batch #13. Mistakes can be yummy too.
Ouch. Purim just ended, sensitive subject.
Roasted Kale. I am not trying to make amends for the junk food question, it's just that I finished working on a kale recipe for Cooking Coach so I have a lot of leftovers and am finding them addictive, like potato chips, only so much healthier.
For my third daughter's bat mitzvah this past summer, my extended family visited Spain and Portugal on a Jewish heritage trip.
A Thermopen instant-read thermometer. Pricey but really accurate, and I need accuracy for developing the recipes for my new book.
My family was walking around Westfield NJ a few Sundays ago on a gorgeous day. We happened upon an art gallery that featured my favorite local artist, Helen Frank. My husband and daughters spotted a stunning painting of a kitchen table which had perfect colors for my den. We knew just the perfect spot to hang where it would peek out perfectly to my own kitchen table. In 20 years we have only bought 4 pieces of art but this one was so perfect we made a group decision and decided right on the spot.
A hockey glove for my son. I am a huge Amazon shopper. I buy everything from household items to gourmet food products.
There is a fabulous store near me called CBL Fine Arts which specializes in unique gifts. For my parent's 50th anniversary, my siblings and I created a memory vase from there of our family photos that get etched onto glass. It is so beautiful.
Last? I am focused on the next! Seder for 25, the ultimate dinner party. My brother-in-law Clint, teases me that he wants to auction off his seat at my seder table on Ebay.
