Welcome to Tina’s Kitchen

 Dear Friends,

The fall holidays of Sukkoth and Simchat Torah are behind us, the air is getting brisk and leaves take on vibrant colors and begin to fall.  Thanksgiving and Hanukkah don’t seem so far away right now!  Check this site for new recipes to serve at your holiday gatherings.  Having just come back from Berlin and heading to a food conference, I will be adding more recipes for you to try.

Even if you are not making an elaborate star-shaped challah, check out the recipe
for Apple Filled Star Challah because the addition of apple cider and cinnamon to the dough makes it perfect for fall Shabbats as well as a great bread for turkey and cranberry sandwiches.Star Challah

Speaking of cranberry, if my recipe for Apple Pear Cranberry Grand Marnier relish is not already a staple in your home then you MUST try it!

And, of course, there is my Sweet Potato Pumpkin Casuela.  No need for marshmallows here!

Eat in Good Health!


Read some of my recent articles on Interfaith Family’s Blog to help you bring a little more of the holidays into your family’s life.







Both Entrée to Judaism  and Entrée to Judaism for Families are now available in stores and online and can be shipped in time for holiday cooking. They are also in eBooks form on iBooks and Kindle so now you can cook my recipes without schmutzing up your book!
