JUPITER, Fla. — For Iti Soni, it’s all about spreading love through food.

“It wasn’t planned,” she said.

She always had a passion for cooking.

“I love three things — taking pictures, using Facebook and making food,” Soni said.

What she didn’t know is that it would lead to a profession doing a pandemic. It’s one of those silver-lining stories during a trying time.

For some, the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies or biscuits brings them back to their childhood.

Me? I think of my mom’s Irish soda bread. It’s fluffy, comforting, filling and portable — the perfect snack for every day, and especially St. Patrick’s Day, which is just around the corner!

A new petition is calling on the Food Network to host a vegan cooking show. Created by nonprofit organization Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM), the Change.org petition explains that while the Food Network airs more than 385 shows, it does not offer one fully vegan show to serve a growing demographic of plant-based eaters.

The full title of Mrs. Levy’s book, as it appears on the cover, is Mrs. Esther Levy’s Jewish Cookery Book on Principles of Economy Adapted for Jewish Housekeepers With Medical Recipes and Other Valuable Information Relative to Housekeeping and Domestic Management and Being the First Jewish Cookbook Published in America as Published in Philadelphia, 1871.

Ludicrously long by modern standards, the cookbook’s title seems even more laughable once you flip through the recipes: They look abridged, written in a kind of cooking shorthand. Measurements, if they’re included at all, may call for “enough” or “good sized pieces.” Instructions — such

If you’re using garlic, don’t ignore the recipe: if it calls for ground garlic, grind it; if it needs to be chopped, chop it. It’s important to follow instructions as the intensity and
