Chef Debi: Roast leg of lamb completes Easter

When I think of spring and Easter dinner, I think of roast leg of lamb.


Versatile, fresh mini cakes fit for dessert

Chocolate seems to reign supreme when it comes to Easter. And while it’s hard to deny the appeal of cocoa, this spring holiday also begs for something fresh and citrusy.


Transforming bread dough into lemony sticky buns

Maybe it’s the bright color. Maybe it’s the fresh, vibrant taste. Whatever the reason, Easter has become inextricably linked to lemon (and chocolate, of course). So we decided to do a refresh of the conventional breakfast cinnamon bun, infusing it with lemony goodness three different ways.

Chef Debi: Hash Brown Quiche

This is a great recipe for Easter breakfast. You can make the crust ahead of time, and it is also gluten free. This is a quiche, but instead of having a pastry crust as the base, I used hash browns. My gluten-free clients love this recipe.

Ingberlach: A Jewish homemade candy for Passover

Candy making can confound even the most careful home cook. Luckily, Passover gives us an excuse to make a simple candy that is delicious and requires little fuss. And you don’t need to celebrate Passover to appreciate it.


Eggs break out, crack the haute cuisine scene

Don’t tell James Beard Award-winning food writer Michael Ruhlman that eggs are trending.
