Well, wonder no more...the AKC (Atlanta Kashruth Commission) has published a list of these items and has generously shared it with KosherEye. Print the Kosher Without a Symbol list and carry it with you – when in doubt, just refer to the list.

We Accepted the Challenge!
Ami Magazine invited KosherEye, along with five other cooks, to participate in a "Secret Ingredient" Cooking Challenge. Included in the group were cookbook authors, food columnists, and leading kosher bloggers. The challenge? To create a recipe in a little over one week that included the "secret ingredient" — Smokey Flavored Baked Bits made by The Quality Choice, a division of Baker’s Choice. The recipes appeared in Whisk, the food section of Ami Living Magazine and we are delighted to share our creation, Smokey Mini Corn Muffins, which was inspired by our Southern heritage.

A Twist on the Traditional
From our friends at Bitayavon Magazine, a recipe for chicken soup that is a combination of traditional Jewish chicken soup and Japanese noodle soup. This easy and quick recipe for Chicken Miso Soup is delicious, healthy and a great way to use leftover chicken and chicken soup. It uses Miso, an ingredient which is popular in Asian cuisine and is packed with many vitamins and proteins. Enjoy!

What Size Rum Cake Will You Bake?

Mushroom Risotto by Chef David Kolotkin
Prime Hospitality Group
What a memorable feast we had at the pre–Kosherfest Social Media Dinner, which was held at the fabulous Solo restaurant in NY. We had to have it, and Chef David Kolotkin graciously shared his recipe for Mushroom Risotto with KosherEye. We are delighted to share it with our readers, and our fellow bloggers. Just thinking of this dish, which was served as an appetizer, makes us hungry! It can also work well as a main course. Let us know if you try it. We certainly are!Add a comment

Martha Stewart likes these Ukrainian Blintzes, and so do we. But, are they really latkes? Presented on the Martha Stewart show by Martha's staff member Danielle Dolinsky, who is Jewish and of Ukrainian heritage,
As avid Martha fans, we decided to try them. The recipe took about 10 minutes to assemble and 15 minutes to fry these cheese blintzes. They are round, rich and certainly resemble latkes. So let's call them cheese latkes. Did you know that the first latkes were actually cheese latkes? After you taste these, we think you'll want to return over and over again to this heirloom recipe. Top them with confectioners sugar, sour cream, crème fraîche.Thank you Danielle and Martha!

Hanukkah Fried Desserts
Hanukkah is the time for frying – latkes, latkes, latkes! But we give no short shrift to fried desserts – mainly doughnuts, doughnuts, doughnuts. Our frying pan has been working overtime with these once a year, delish dessert recipes: traditional Sufganiyot, divine Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches, and our piece de resistance on the side, Chocolate Doughnut Hot Chocolate.Add a comment
