MEXICAN STYLE SKIRT STEAK + RICE BOWLS.
Perfect winter every day type of dinner. Hearty, super flavorful but not weigh you down heavy!
We love any dinners in the house that people can “build themselves”. That means putting out a protein and a bunch of things to eat with it so that everyone can customize their own plates and I don’t have to spend any time picking things off of dishes!!! That’s what this type of dinner is all about. KILLER SKIRT STEAK combined with a bunch of yummy accoutrements!!
#recipe
2&1/2 lbs skirt steak
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp paprika
1 Tbsp granulated garlic
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp ground dry mustard powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp coarse black pepper
3 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp lime juice (from 1-2 limes)
Place skirt steak in a large bowl. Cover meat with cold water and vinegar. Allow to sit for 30-40 minutes. Remove water, rinse meat and pat very well to dry. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and stir to combine and distribute marinade evenly. Allow to marinate for at least 1 hour or up to over night. When ready to cook place a grill pan over high heat. Once pan is hot, add a little canola oil to grease pan and prevent sticking. Place a few pieces of skirt steak on grill pan, careful not to overcrowd the pan and cause the meat to steam! Cook for 2-3 minutes one the first side and 1-1&1/2 minutes on the second side. (Cooking time will vary based on thickness of your skirt steak). Remove from heat and allow steak to rest for 5-6 minutes. Slice meat against the grain and serve over Mexican rice along with avocado, Chiles and pickled onions!
For the rice: just swap out half the water you would normally use with an equal amount of tomato sauce. You can also add 1 Tbsp each of granulated garlic and paprika for extra flavor! #steak #skirtsteak #rice #mexicanfood #dinner #dinnerideas #eeeeeats #feedfeed #f52grams #gloobyfood #gargeran #forkyeah #foodandwine #todayfood #bareaders

BEER BATTERED CHICKEN POPPERS
aka, the easier way to feed fried chicken to a crowd.
Throw a bunch of stuff in a bowl, mix, add chicken, mix again and fry!
The only question with these fried chicken pieces of goodness are whether to actually sauce them or not bc the batter itself is that delicious! You can eat them alone, serve with a dipping sauce or do what I’m doing this week and smothering them with a sticky, spicy and delicious buffalo sauce!
However you do it, it’s worth it to make, bc fried chicken is always a crowd pleaser!
#recipe
12 chicken cutlets cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 c all purpose flour
2 Tbsp paprika
1 Tbsp granulated garlic
2 tsp mustard powder
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp coarse black pepper
12 oz light beer
1/2 cup water
Oil for frying
Pour 3 inches of oil into a medium sized pot and place over medium high heat.
Meanwhile add flour, salt, pepper and spice to a bowl and mix to combine. Slowly pour in beer and water. Stir till a thick pancake-y like batter forms. Add chicken and stir really well to make sure each piece is coated! Once oil is hot, add chicken in small batches to the pot. Don’t over crowd or they’ll stick together! Fry for two minutes total, only mixing after 1 minute. Use a slotted spoon to remove and place on cooling rack. Serve hot and enjoy.
Buffalo sauce:
Combine 1 c Franks hot sauce + 2/3 Tbsp honey. Place over high heat and stir till combined. Once sauce just begins to bubble remove from heat and pour over chicken. *NOTES:
•if sauce is too spicy, add more honey to your liking. •for shabbos: this chicken will never be as crispy on shabbos as it is right out of the fryer. Here’s what I do: place chicken in a large baking dish so it’s as much in one layer as possible. Place on plata, uncovered for 1-2 hours before the meal. For the sauce, remove from fridge in the morning and allow to come to room temp. To serve pour room temp sauce over hot chicken or serve on the side! #chicken #friedchicken #feedfeed #f52grams #chanukah

ME, MOM + GRANDPA
circa 1986
@chefeitanbernath challenged @kitchentested and she challenged me.
Post a throwback Chanukah photo.
It’s not my usual post, but I asked my parents to send me a photo (bc all my baby pics are at their house 6,000 miles away) just to see what they would send!
My father picked this one and I know why! It’s a photo of me, my mother and my grandfather a”h.
I’m pretty sure this was my first Chanukah, I was about 9 months old and yes, I had that much hair on my head!
I love everything about this photo and it’s part of the reason I love Instagram.
Through photos we get to capture moments our children may not ever remember. But then we see the picture and all the love my mother, grandfather and father (who most likely took the photo) felt for me at that moment comes rushing back to me.
Wishing every single one of you out their a beautiful, happy and memory making Chanukah! ✌🏻💜+🕎,
Danielle
Now it’s your turn! All of you! Throw it back to yesterday, last year or decades ago! However you do it, pic a picture that makes you smile like this one did for me!

2 INGREDIENT DONUTS
Yup.
You heard me.
two!!!!!!!!
•1 PINT MELTED ICE CREAM 🍦 🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦 •2&3/4 CUPS SELF RISING FLOUR (flour w/yeast)🌾🌾
That’s it. 🍦🍩🍦🍩🍦🍩🍦🍩🍦🍩🍦
*you can use regular flour + 2 tsp instant yeast also!
Every once in a while, lying in bed, staring at the ceiling in the middle of the night watching the clock as the minutes go by one slow second at a time, you are rewarded with the ultimate lightbulb moment.
An idea so big you remember it even when you wake up!
Well, that’s what this was.
After weeks of working on something similar and failing a ridiculous amount of times, I had given up.
Then this happened. And I am sooooo excited it did.
It will make your Chanukah easier, yummier and waaaay more fun. So, stock up on your ice cream ASAP, before the freezer section is emptied out by everyone else!
You can fill em, stuff, glaze em, frost em or dectorate em any way you like. You can also do what we did and watch em straight up bc the dough is that good.
Did I mention they’re made with ice cream!?!!

Happy Tuesday all!
#recipe

Add in miso and garlic and cook for another minute till fragrant. Drop in sweet potatoes and stir. Return meatballs to the pot + any juices that accumulated on the dish they were sitting on. Raise heat to high and pour in wine. Cook for 3 minutes. Add the stocks, tomato and spinach. Bring soup to a boil then simmer for at least 1&1/2 hours covered. 40 minutes before serving add in farro!

GARLIC, LEMON + CHILE CONFIT + BONUS CONFITED GREMOLATA
That’s right folks! 2 recipes in one delicious post.
What can you do with these ridiculously flavorful, completely addictive “condiments”. Well, you can eat them straight up, in the kitchen, by yourself, then make another batch quickly so there’s no evidence of what you did.
OR. You can eat the confit spread on bread, cook up your morning eggs with it, drizzle it over veggies to roast, marinate your chicken, meat or fish with it...sooo many possibilities. Including, using it to make this gremolata which should top every single thing you eat this week bc it’s amazing. They’re both super simple to make and will literally enhance ANY meal!
#recipe
45 cloves garlic
1 lemon, washed, thinly slicedC then slices halved
1 red Chile, thinly sliced
1 c extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp coarse black pepper
Put everything in an oven safe dish. (Pyrex ideal so you can see through to check on progress). Cover tightly with foil. Bake for 1h to 1h 20m until golden, soft, smushy & delish!
Gremolata:
3/4 c toasted, cooled slivered almonds, chopped
1&1/2 c herbs (I did 1/2 parsley,1/2 cilantro), chopped
3 of the confit halved lemon slices, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped (or smushed)
2 confit Chiles, chopped
2 tbsp of the confit oil
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp coarse pepper
Put everything in a bowl and mix to combine!

SUPERMARKET STYLE FISH STICKS
These are the grown up, way better for you and frankly much more delicious version of those floppy, never quite crunchy enough fish sticks we had growing up at camp.
They were insanely easy to make and as I type this up Leah Baila is sitting by the tray picking me off one by one!
You can totally #glutenfree these babies by replacing the flour with a 1-1 gluten free blend and using cornflake crumbs. Also, feel free to double or triple the recipe and throw em in the freezer (post breaded, pre-cooked) to save for a rainy day!
Happy Tuesday All!
#recipe
1 lb ground fish (I used cod)
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp kosher salt + 3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp coarse black pepper
1 tbsp flour + 1 cup flour
4 eggs, beaten
2 c breadcrumbs
Place fish, lemon, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper & 1 tbsp flour in a bowl. Mix well to combine. Line a 8x5 inch Pyrex or dish with Saran Wrap. Place fish mixture inside and press down to create one smooth flat layer. Cover with Saran Wrap and freeze for 30 min. Meanwhile preheat oven to 350f (180c) place 1 c flour, eggs and crumbs each in their own bowl and add 1/4 tsp salt to each. Remove fish from freezer and flip container into a cutting board to creat a flat ground fish surface. Cut rectangle into 18 strips. Bread each strip by placing in flour, then egg then breadcrumbs. Be gentle during this process they are fragile until cooked. Place on a very well greased baking sheet. Spray the tops and sides of fish stick with non stick spray and bake for 30 min till crisp. Serve hot and enjoy! #cleaneating #eatclean #vegetarian #kidfriendlyfood #dinner #fishsticks #fish #eeeeeats #feedfeed #f52grams #gloobyfood #gargeran #forkyeah #foodandwine #todayfood #bareaders #chodeshbari

CHICKEN SHEETPAN TACOS
Need I say more?
Ok fine. But just a little Bc I still have 300 out of 2000 more bottles of spice blend to fill for you!
It’s insanely delicious, suuuuuper flavorful, has all the sauciness a good taco filling needs and you can make the whole dinner on one pan so clean up is a breeze!!! Based on how many of you already made it, I’m going to assume you get it and go back to spice bottling!!! Happy Wednesday all!
#recipe
12 thin chicken cutlets cut into small pieces
2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
2 purple onions, thinly sliced
1 green belle pepper, thinly sliced
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp kosher salt
2 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp + 1 tsp granulated garlic
1 heaping tbsp of adobo from a can of chile in adobo
4 tbsp fresh lime juice
15 cherry tomatoes
Preheat oven to 350°f (180°c) and line a baking sheet with parchment. Place chicken on one half and veggies on the other half. Drizzle oil over the chicken and veggies and sprinkle salt, paprika and granulated garlic over the whole sheet pan. Place half the adobo and half the lime juice over the veggies and the other half over the chicken. Wearing gloves, or using tongs toss veggies first to combine all the ingredients, then do the same for the chicken. Try to keep the chicken and veggies separate but you don’t need to meticulous. If they mix a little it’s fine! Lastly, spread out cherry tomatoes across the pan pressing them gently into the chicken and veggies. Place sheet pan in the oven. After 20 min, remove pan, mix veggies a little, mix chicken a little and gently press on tomatoes so they can begin to release their juices. Return pan to the oven for another 15-20 minutes. Once everything is cooked through, remove from oven and mix the whole tray to combine chicken and veggies!
Serve hot and enjoy!

BEST VEGETABLE SOUP EVER.
I do not say that lightly.
It was amazing.
I am usually not a fan of puréed foods. I like my food to have something to bite into. But something was just soooo right about this. No one in my house could get enough of it!!! I think the combo of roasting the veg, to bring out there sweetness before sautéeing + the flavor from the already amazing chicken soup + the acidity from the tomato and wine was just WOAH, a winning combination!!!
Either make this for shabbos, or double your chicken soup recipe just so that you can make this one day next week!
It’s for sure going to be making many many appearances in my house this winter!! Happy Thursday Everyone!
5 carrots, peeled + diced
2 small leeks, chopped
2 big zucchini, diced
1 bunch celery stalks, peeled + diced
1 kohlrabi, peeled + diced
2 yellow onions, peeled + diced
5 cloves garlic, peeled
3 tomatoes, halved
4 Tbsp + 1 tsp extra vigrin olive oil, divided
4 tsp kosher salt, divided
2 tsp coarse black pepper, divided
3/4 cup dry white wine
10 cups chicken stock (can be bought or leftover chicken soup, strained)
Preheat oven to 200c (400f). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and divided all the veggies amongst the 2. Drizzle each baking sheet with 2 Tbsp olive oil and sprinkle 2 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper over each one. Stir veggies on each baking sheet to coat all of them with oil, salt and pepper. Bake each tray in the oven for 35-40 minutes until the vegetables have softened and begun to caramelize. Remove from oven. Heat a large pot over medium high heat. Add remaining 1 tsp of olive oil and all the veggies to the pot. Use a spatula to push any of the juices that have accumulated on the baking trays into the pot. Cook veggie for 4 minutes stirring often. Raise heat to high and pour in wine. Stir immediately and cook for 2 minutes. Pour in chicken stock + stir. Bring soup up to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to very low, cover the pot + allow soup to simmer for 2-3 hours. Shut off heat + use an immersion blender to puree soup. Taste to adjust seasonings! #soup #cleaneating #eatclean #healthyrecipes #dinner #feedfeed #f52grams #gloobyfood #feedfeed
