Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies

by Shoshana on February 1, 2011 · 4 comments

The baby is now three weeks old and we are starting to settle into being a family of four instead of three. It has been a bit of a difficult adjustment for my older son, who is no longer able to get all of my attention. Knowing that there would be other people around on […]

What to Do With Leftover Chanukkah Gelt

by Shoshana on December 9, 2010 · 1 comment

Although it is fun and exciting to eat Chanukkah gelt the first few days of the holiday, every year I find that by the end of the eight days there are leftover gelt sitting around that no one really wants to eat. Even the three year old seems tired of them. The chocolate gets nibbled […]

Until recently I never really understood meringues. The ones I had encountered just tasted sweet and crunchy without a lot of flavor. Why would I choose that when there was a perfectly good chocolate chip cookie sitting next to it on the cookie platter? It is the obvious choice for Passover but I have never […]

Cranberry and White Chocolate Hamentashen

The fall of my senior year of college my roommate went to a New England Cranberry festival and returned with a ten pound crate of cranberries. We, of course, took one look at that huge crate, decided it was not enough, and ordered two more. Then we spent the rest of the year coming up […]

Although in my family we are partial to the traditional flavors of hamentashen (we all love poppyseed) I can’t help but play around with new fillings every year. Not everyone is thrilled to get only poppyseed hamentashen in their Mishloach Manot and I like to provide our friends with interesting varieties they won’t be getting […]

Lemon Macadamia Nut Cookies

There is nothing like reorganizing the pantry to set me going in the kitchen. I have a bad habit of making shopping lists without checking the pantry first and then buying things impulsively when I am in the store. That is why in the reorganization I found things like three entire bags of dried chick […]
