This time of year I find myself wanting to bake things that will fill my house with warm spicy smell of cinnamon and other fall spices. In spite of the fact that the weather is supposed to be in the 90’s this week, in my kitchen, at least, it feels like fall. Most of the […]

Rosh Hashana is fast approaching and I have a few more holiday desserts I want to share. On Rosh Hashanah it is traditional to eat foods symbolic of our hopes for a good and prosperous new year.

With summer in full swing I wanted to share these fun beach themed cupcakes.

Trifle is one of those desserts that isn’t one of the first things that comes to mind when I am planning dessert, but every time I do make it I wonder why I don’t make it more often. Layers of cake, fruit, and custard blend seamlessly into a delicious and beautiful dessert that is better […]



This past Sunday I took the kids to the farmers market for the first time in months. This being California the farmers markets are open year round, but the baby growing in my belly has left me exhausted. It takes quite a bit of energy  to navigate the farmers market with two small children, so it’s […]



Almond paste is one of my favorite things. I love the sweet almond flavor and use it in as many things as I can. It can get expensive to buy the tiny cans of almond paste they sell in the store so I buy the huge industrial sized can and keep the almond paste in […]

All summer long I have been buying basket after basket of berries with the intention of making delicious desserts with them. Without fail it seems like by the time I turn around they are gone, eaten before I can do anything with them. And I am as much to blame as anyone else in my […]
