Grain Guidebook

Grain Guidebook

Before we dive into the different types of grains and their benefits, let's first define WHY our bodies need grains. Well first because whole grains are one of the best sources of carbohydrates out there. Carbohydrates are crucial components necessary for energy...

Caramelized Red Onions

Caramelized Red Onions

This is hands down my husband's favorite shabbat veggie dish. So simple, but so good every time. What I love about this recipe is a) its pretty fool proof, you can't really make a wrong move with this one and b) it's a multipurpose recipe in that it can be a great...

Vanilla Mockshake

Vanilla Mockshake

Ok I'll admit this isn't the real deal. Obviously a creamy vanilla milkshake cannot be recreated into a yummier healthy version. But this mockshake accomplishes its role as a little midday "treat." And the perk: it's loaded with protein and healthy fats that at least...

PB Granola

PB Granola

You guys need to be making a batch of this stuff once a week. It's seriously that good. Over the years, Israel has really stepped up its yogurt game. The Dannon Pro Yogurts are really excellent, and makes me miss Chobani Greek yogurt a bit less. But the problem is...

Buckman Broccoli

Buckman Broccoli

Broccoli is my all time favorite veggie. It's quick to make, and punches in a huge amount of vitamins. It's also high in fiber, and like most leafy greens, has a good amount of iron. Another cool fact about broccoli is that it has a notable amount of folic acid, so...

Silan Glazed Turkey Balls

Silan Glazed Turkey Balls

Always looking for ways to please my kids in the food department. My three year old is one of the pickiest eaters I've met. Seriously though. My siblings have lots and lots of kids (I think I'm at 20 nieces and nephews from my side?) and non of them have had kids this...

Tropical Iced Tea Lemonade

Tropical Iced Tea Lemonade

Anyone else obsessed with the passion fruit iced tea lemonade at Starbucks? Brings me back such high school nostalgia! I found once moving to Israel that there’s no equivalent to a good iced tea readily available at your typical cafe. So had to take it upon myself to...

Healthier Peach Cobbler

Healthier Peach Cobbler

I always loved summer fruit so more than winter fruit. It makes me so happy. And nectarines come in at a close first place right behind blueberries as my fav fruit of all time. So making peach cobbler (every week!) over the summer is just a must here at the Buckmans....
