About

Susie Fishbein, best selling kosher cookbook author, graciously consented to share two of her recipes (from her upcoming Kosher By Design – Teens and 20-Somethings) with our readers. I tried the first one last evening, after the fast, and loved it (and… I’m quite a few hours past my 20-somethings)

"I adore these soft sweet pears and the way the sweet potatoes become sticky and sweet. You can try this with cubed butternut squash in addition to or in place of the sweet potatoes.
