Recipe made by: Avichai Ozur Bass Based on Ozlem’s Turkish table (http://ozlemsturkishtable.com/2012/02/simit-sesame-encrusted-bread-rings/) Simit, pronounced “see- meet,” is a Turkish bread which is essentially a lighter, fluffier cross between a bagel and a soft pretzel.  In Turkey and some former parts of the Ottoman empire, they’re sold on every street corner, and they’re what you buy … Continue reading A Turkish delight (this recipe is not for Turkish delight)

In the 360 … Continue reading Happy first birthday Kosher Kollege!

Recipe inspired by: http://www.glorioustreats.com/2016/03/lemon-blueberry-bread.html and http://www.marthastewart.com/313152/lemon-glaze Recipe made by: Robbie Shorr, Avichai Ozur Bass Admittedly, Kosher Kollege has gotten a bit out of control recently.
