I am…

…probably in the kitchen, dreaming of a chocolate layer cake, looking up recipes, poking a freshly baked loaf of bread, melting butter, whisking something, chopping vegetables, eating a cookie, drinking tea, taking a long walk, wandering the outdoor market, squeezing my daughters, trying to breathe deeply, in need of a cold beer, wishing I had more counter space…

  7. Brava!!!
    Your work is beautiful. Your recipes sound great. I can’t wait to try some. And your writing is so enjoyable. When’s the novel coming? Have you read “School of Essential Ingredients”? You’d love it!

  8. Happened upon your site, very nice. I also love to cook and we have a rather large desert garden here in So. NM (USA!) Question to you: considering juicers…do you think the Breville 800 Elite is worth the $$$, what are your thoughts on the Breville dual Elite w/ puree disc only available from WmsSonoma and pricier than the previous one I mentioned. Just your thoughts please would surely help me decide. Thanks very much!

  9. Ariella,
    A wonderful(and reasonably accurate)tribute to a unique woman who left an indelible mark on the younger generations of her family. The love and humor always shine through in your reminiscences.

  10. Hey Ari – This is Neal Simpson from Brookline Patch. We met briefly at the Coolidge Corner Arcade building a few months ago during the fruit pie contest (I interviewed you for a video feature on our website). When you have a chance, I was hoping to talk to you about a project we’re working on at Patch. You can reach me anytime at neal@patch.com or 781-698-7785. Thanks!

    – Neal

  11. Hi Ariella,

    I’m Tzipora from NY- I work with your mom, who told me about your site. It’s gorgeous and I am making your waldorf redux for Shabbat (I love wheatberries).

    Thanks and hope to meet someday!

  12. Enjoying your recipes and pics, love everything about yerushalayim and would love to see pics of what u buy at the shooks in all cities, miss it much.

  13. I subscribe to Ari Cooks so I’ve never been to the home page. A stunning picture of a stunning woman! I read every recipe, even though I don’t cook and my mouth waters each time! Keep up the great work Ari and hope to see you soon. Lots of love, Anna

  14. Hi Ari,

    Thank you for the delicious recipes and delightful stories and photographs. I enjoy subscribing to your blog via email, but have you considered adding an rss feed? Or perhaps you have one that I’ve missed? I’d love to add you to my reader list.


    1. Jess, since I changed my blog’s theme, I’ve had trouble restoring the RSS feed. I will keep working on it. Thanks for reading. Ariella
