Any good Kosher Cooking websites?

Does anyone know of any good Kosher or regular websites out there that have great recipes and maybe offer videos too?

I am even willing to look at paid subscription sites too if the recipes are amazing. If so, what do you like about them or dislike?

Thanks Fellow Foodies :-)!

  1. Have you tried Gourmet Kosher Cooking: http://www.gourmetkoshercooking.com/? Or there is always the Jewish food mailing list: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jewish-....

        I used to love visiting the jewish food mailing list, but its really hard to sift thru, and it takes me too long to look through recipes.

      2. Even though I keep kosher, I certainly don't limit myself to kosher websites for recipes, just as I don't limit myself to kosher cookbooks or magazines, but two that I do look at and enjoy are: http://www.couldntbeparve.com (almost exclusively desserts) and http://www.baronesstapuzina.com (at least, I think this is a kosher one, but I won't swear to it; it's definitely from Israel, anyway).

        There's one more site I would recommend, though it does not precisely fulfill the request of the OP. I mention it, though, for anyone else reading this who might be interested. I find many interesting recipes from a site called "Got No Milk." (http://gotnomilk.wordpress.com). Since the recipes are dairy-free, there are often recipes that turn out to be kosher, though there is no guarantee that the meat called for is always kosher, or that other ingredients are always available with hashgacha. One of my new favorite recipes is from there, and not only was it kosher, but even Pesachdik! (Balsamic Chicken with Pears and Cherries, in case anyone cares.)

          Hi Queenscook,

          Thanks for recommending my site. Yes, I do keep kosher.

          Enjoy!

              1. The 'kosher section' of epicurious is totally useless. It's just the collected recipes that they've featured for Pesach, Chanuka, or Rosh Hashana over the years (324 in total), rather than all of the recipes on their website that are inherently kosher or are easily adaptable.

                Of course, that means that the usual caveats about 'kosher' recipes in general publications apply. The first recipe that I clicked on after doing a search for kosher recipes is 'Catalan-Style Fresh Sardine Escabeche,' from April 2009 (presumably as part of a Passover feature). It calls for matzoh meal rather than flour, but also for sherry vinegar, which one can't find kosher at all as far as I know, plus pimenton dolce, which I highly doubt you'll be able to find kosher for Passover.

                All that said, I use epicurious all the time, just ignoring those recipes that I can't make kosher, or adapting if possible. I've never felt the need for a particularly kosher-focused recipe source, although I find these boards invaluable for finding ingredients, tips, and suggestions.
