One of the things I love about being back in California is the wide variety of fruit and produce available here. It is December and we have all kinds of vegetables growing in the garden. I love walking around the neighborhood and looking at all of the different fruit trees. One of my favorite trees […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Cake

by Shoshana on November 5, 2010 · 20 comments

The excited “look they have Reese’s” exclamations last week of both trick-or-treaters and their parents reminded me just how popular the combination of peanut butter and chocolate really are among people of all ages.

Moist and Wonderful Honey Cake

by Shoshana on September 16, 2009 · 4 comments

Honey cake is one of the traditional foods for Rosh Hashana but I have to admit that I really don’t like most honey cake. It is usually so dry it sticks to the roof of your mouth in a quite unpleasant way. I am not one to pass up sweets but I will gladly walk […]

A little while ago, as I was looking up the recipe for blueberry lemon jam in my files, this recipe for peach blueberry cake caught my eye. Since I am making a real effort to try the recipes I have already saved rather than always searching for new ones I knew that I needed to […]

Lemon Blueberry Upside-Down Cake

by Shoshana on July 16, 2009 · 5 comments

One of my all time favorite cakes is a blueberry lemon almond upside down cake. This moist delicious cake has a delicate lemon and almond flavor with a sugary crunch on top from caramelized blueberries that makes you want just another little slice more. It can make normally restrained people decide that cake makes a […]
