Meir Panim’s Tiberias Free Restaurant not only provides warm meals, but the opportunity to socialize as well.
On The Road To The Perfect Snack
In honor of the beginning of summer, we decided to take the search for the perfect snack on the road and see what we could find along the East Coast.
We began our journey in the beautiful state of Massachusetts, more specifically in Hyannis. There we came across the world famous Cape Cod Potato Chip Co. Most of their products are under Kof-K supervision and are parve, but please check the labels to verify. Among the varieties we tried and loved were Sea Salt and Vinegar, Golden Russet and the Lighthouse pretzels. We took home two bags of the reduced fat varieties and have to say that no one believed they were low fat. They were truly incredible.
From there we traveled until we reached the Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Among the many wonderful products originating in that historical area is Stroehmann's bread. Available in a number of varieties including Dutch Country Potato and Whole Wheat, we found them to be soft, with a nice crust and good flavor. Perfect with peanut butter and jelly or for a Sunday French toast brunch with vanilla ice cream and maple syrup.
We continued traveling through Upstate New York, where, in a city called Marion, we found an incredible snack ? apple chips. Produced by Seneca Foods Corporation, these delicious chips are under the Kof-K and are nearly all parve. They are amazing. We brought home a number of flavors for the office and everyone loved them. Most people came back for seconds, asking where they could be purchased. Our favorite flavors were pink lady and golden delicious.
We ended our trip back in Brooklyn were we found a number of products produced by a company called BBM Chocolate. Amongst their huge selection we found the world famous Alprose Chocolates ? which taste just as incredible as the really expensive chocolate for a fraction of the price. They also manufacture the L'Chaim cereal bars ? the only coated cereal bars that we have found that are parve. They come in three flavors ? peach, strawberry and raspberry. If you are looking for a quick and healthy treat, pick up a box and try them. The last product we tried there was a L'Chaim bar. For those of you Cholov Yisrael eaters who long for a Three Muskateers bar ? get to a store and try one of these. You won't be able to tell the difference.
That's all for now ? next month look for more bread, BBQ sauces and dressings.

It’s not Chanukah without latkes! That’s true; but don’t make the same boring latkes this year. Go for something healthier, more vibrant, and flavorful.
There is nothing like cracking open a fresh new cookbook, the pages still pristine and crisp and wondering what surprises are about to jump off the pages and leap onto your serving platters as they wait to be carried to your table and devoured.
This is messy food, the kind of meal where you ditch the silverware and use your hands and with an array of fabulous sauces on the menu, I have no doubt that Gotham Burger goes through a lot of napkins. From the moment we started, till the very last crumb had either been eaten or packed up to take home, I loved every minute of our meal, chosen for us by Roth, at our request.
How to begin describing one of the best meals I have ever eaten? I suppose logic, and the “Sound of Music” song, would dictate that I start at the beginning.
Supercharged foods – a term you might have heard bandied about, but what are they? A simple definition would be any food that is unprocessed, whole and nutrient rich. Below are some suggestions of supercharged foods to add to your diet.
There is nothing like three sets of three-day yomim tovim to strike terror in the hearts of meal planners everywhere as they struggle to plan a staggering quantity of delicious, varied and attractive meals for potentially large numbers of people.
Enjoy this” sweet” new idea for a “Sweet New Year”! A refreshing and very simple idea to finish off any Yom Tov meal.
Summer dinners are blissfully easy. Who doesn’t enjoy a good bbq? All kids seem to love chicken and hot dogs, and pretty much anything served up with a side of fries will be devoured. Once it’s back to school and the grill is put away, dinner time becomes somewhat of a dreaded chore. Next time you are left with the question, “What’s for Dinner?” whip up one of these deliciously easy dinners and instead of worrying about meal planning, simply enjoy family time around the table!
For me, there’s nothing like making challahs for Shabbos. But I can’t say it’s always been the height of my week. There was a time when baking fluffy, light-as-a-feather challahs was a total mystery to me.
The perfect appetizers require minimal effort by the hostess and taste so good your guests will think you spent the whole day in the kitchen cooking. These recipes do exactly that. They are super tasty, sorta fancy and seriously easy! I used wonton wrappers to create wonton cups, and then filled them up with some of my favorite ingredients, such as Creamy Mac & Cheese, Zesty Taco Fillings, Savory Pizza Toppings and Sweet Whipped Cream with Fresh Fruit!
Yeast dough is considered one of the most basic but complicated of the dough family. Just think of the first cakes you made – I’m almost sure they weren’t yeast cakes.
But mine were!
It’s all over.
The orchestra is still, the lights are dimmed. Your simcha outfits hang in your closet, silent witnesses to a time you will treasure in your mind and heart forever.
Mayonnaise. That’s right, you read it correctly. And I’m sure it’s not the first time you’ve read it, either. And the thought of it has probably made you go ‘”blech.” But this is me saying it, so let’s break it down logically, and you’ll see that the idea isn’t as far-fetched as you might think. […]

August 1937, Cheyenne Wyoming – Sally Levin, an Orthodox Jewish teenager has been diagnosed with Schizophrenia and her family is preparing to institutionalize her.
The first few post-Pesach days are filled with the hurried rush to consume as much “chometz” as possible – and then the weight concerns begin. For some, the gut reaction (pun intended) is to stop eating – never a good idea. We all know that the best way to lose those extra pounds is by focusing on eating healthy.
