In honor of Purim, Outré EATS presents a new take on traditional Persian fare.
This time of year, we all have our traditional favorites, the ones that everyone at your table looks forward to seeing, but it’s always nice to round things out with some creative, new ideas.
It's no joke – Pesach is looming closer and there's still so much to do. This is definitely not a time to rest! Who...
I sometimes -- ok, often -- envy my friends who cook daring, exotic dishes and throw crazy things like fruit into veggie salads. Innovative stuff like that doesn't go over so well in my house. I can prepare it, but Hubby will stare down at the unfamiliar thing on his plate with suspicious distaste. He's a creature of habit, even more so a creature of tradition. Not only does he want to eat the same things, he wants it prepared in the most traditional way. To him, it's not really Shabbos without classic gefilte fish and chicken soup. And even when its 99 degrees outside, steaming hot cholent and potato kugel better be on the menu.
I am obsessed with Trader Joe’s chili lime seasoning. Most, if not all, of the Trader Joe’s spices are under the OU, and are just amazing.
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!
Chanukah is such an exciting chag to look forward to. Not just because of the presents and the menorah, the lights and the chocolates - and the fact that I feel like it's a really fun kids' holiday - but it's so exciting to actually be able to serve freshly baked food.

All these salads can be made a day in advance and refrigerated until serving time, making them ideal for a hectic, busy Yom Tov time of year. Besides, it’s always nice to have something different and delicious to serve when extra guests and family come over…
The children miraculously and unanimously agreed to wear pajamas as their costumes this Purim!

It is that time of year again when you can find in your supermarkets a large selection of fresh and frozen turkeys.
These popular little puff pastry parcels are usually filled with potatoes, mushrooms or spinach and cheese. They can be served as snack, as finger foods at a Shabbos kiddush, or as part of a summer picnic. They are a genuine Sephardic-Jewish creation, copied by others throughout the Eastern Mediterranean. They can be served hot or cold; you can prepare them in advance, and then freeze, unbaked. Just pop them into the oven when needed.
Come Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot, there are extra guests for dinner; I am always looking for a tasty family meal that everyone will enjoy.
