The Side Dish Recipes
Kosher, pareve and praiseworthy complements for every meal~

It's easy to decide on a main course, but many of us are stuck for good side dish recipes. The Kosher Channel is here to help with dozens of side dish recipes ranging from pasut, simple to potchke elaborate, all delicious.

When we are Cooking for The King, we can choose the recipes we serve our family as well as choose the thoughts that build our home. A Jewish woman has the opportunity to build her Torah home and strengthen her family in all of her tasks. The question is, Am I looking for complements or cooking for compliments? You choose.
