The Best Recipes I’ve Made In Quarantine

Best Recipes I've Made in Quarantine

Like everyone else, I’ve been cooking a LOT more due to quarantine. Obviously at this point in the year (September), NYC is open again and we’re able to eat out more. But I’ve still been cooking almost every single meal at home!

I’m a creature of habit, so once I find a recipe, I make it multiple times (until I get sick of it, ha). Below are all of the best recipes of quarantine I’ve made and enjoyed during this awful freaking year! Enjoy, and let me know if you try any of them :)

P.S. I double all of these recipes so we have leftovers for lunch every day.


This Italian Orzo Spinach Soup recipe is ready to go in 30 minutes, and it's so delicious and comforting! Feel free to add in some Italian sausage if you'd like extra protein. |

So hearty! I love a good orzo soup.

I love this cabbage soup recipe, made with ground beef, vegetables and tomatoes. It's the perfect cold weather soup and makes enough for leftovers.

I’ve made this recipe countless times in the Q. It’s soooo good. I have since shared the recipe with Idan’s family and they make it all the time, too. I usually pair it with frozen broccoli to make things easier!

The Best Chicken Soup You’ll Ever Eat

This really is one of the best chicken soups I’ve ever eaten. It’s loaded with ginger and turmeric and chicken, making it great for your immune system (especially as we approach cold + flue season… in addition to Covid. Good luck everybody).

OMG this is SOOOO good. We buy the garlic naan from Trader Joe’s and stick it with this recipe. It’s so incredibly flavorful and hearty–I can’t recommend this recipe enough!
