With Hanukkah fast approaching, we turned to author of ‘Real Life Kosher Cooking’ Miriam Pascal for her recommendations on upsizing the tastiness and downsizing the stress this season.

“Talk about a crowd pleaser! I served this corned beef at a large family gathering, and I was surprised — and definitely pleased — to see that everyone, even the pickiest kids, were enjoying this meat — and for good reason! The sweet Asian flavors in the glaze are a fantastic pairing for the tangy pickled flavors of the beef, making a dish that had everyone reaching for seconds.”

“The tomato coating gives these potatoes a ton of flavor and a really unique caramelization on the outside As a bonus, they’re easy to make and kid friendly!”

Chocolate Funnel Cake.

“Funnel cakes are traditionally carnival or amusement park food, but with some pretty garnishes, you can elevate these tasty treats into a party-worthy dish. They get their name from the authentic way of making them: dropping the batter into hot oil using a funnel. This chocolate variety is somewhere between chocolate cake and funnel cake, with each little strand giving you an incredible crunch.”
