Sea Glass Candy

by Shoshana on July 8, 2013 · 8 comments

I have to admit it is hard for me to throw away food. I will do anything I can to repurpose leftovers into a new recipe. Some attempts are more successful than others, I will confess, but overall it tends to work out. After I made the red, white, and blue rock candy I couldn’t […]

I am very excited to share this candy. I love getting into the spirit of holidays and have been thinking for quite a while about making fun red, white, blue candy for the Fourth of July. While the lollipops I made are fun and easy to make, these were my real inspiration for this year’s […]

Red White and Blue Lollipops

by Shoshana on June 26, 2013 · 13 comments

With the Fourth of July right around the corner I have been playing around with a variety of red, white, and blue candies. A couple of years ago I made these fun flag lollipops, so this year I wanted to try something a little bit different. Lollipops are always a big hit with the kids […]

Lemon Cheesecake Truffles

by Shoshana on June 13, 2013 · 13 comments

As a food blogger I often find myself with assorted dribs and drabs of leftover frostings, fillings or other ingredients in my refrigerator just waiting to be turned into something new. When making desserts to post on the blog I will often make partial recipes so that we don’t end up with quite so much […]

Kumquat Pate de Fruit

by Shoshana on May 2, 2013 · 10 comments

Whenever I walk into a fancy candy shop I am drawn to the display of Pate de Fruit. These glistening fruit jellies look like shining jewels lined up in the display and I always want to buy some. While sometimes they can be disappointingly bland, a well made Pate de Fruit is intensely flavorful, capturing […]

Limonana marshmallows

My husband is currently on a trip in Israel. Talking to him everyday about all the things he is seeing and experiencing has meant that Israel is very much on all of our minds (especially my older son who keeps reminding my husband that next time he wants to go too). With Yom Haatzmaut, Israel’s […]

When I saw that the recipe contest on Food52 this week was “Your Best Recipe with Cereal” I knew I wanted to submit my recipe for one of my favorite candies, Caramelized Rice Krispy Bark. When I went to get the recipe off my blog to submit it to Food52 I realized that I never […]

Marshmallow Frogs (aka Kosher Peeps)

by Shoshana on March 11, 2013 · 10 comments

With Passover just two weeks away my Seder planning is in full swing. Besides all of the food planning and shopping one of the major things I think about in planning the seders is how to keep the participants engaged. Especially when they belong to the five and under crowd. According to the Gemara one […]

Passion Fruit Truffles

The Jewish holiday of Purim is just two weeks away and my household is already gearing up. We have figured out our costumes and have been listening to Purim music nonstop. (Although, in the interest of full disclosure I should probably mention that we listen to Purim music nonstop year round because whenever I give […]

Candy Corn Chex Mix

by Shoshana on October 25, 2012 · 8 comments

In direct contrast to my last healthy post, today’s recipe is all about the candy corn (which in spite of the word corn in its name has no relation to any vegetable of any kind). Every fall when I see it appear in the stores I always buy a bag. I just can’t help myself. […]

Ginger Truffles

This recipe is in memory of my grandmother who passed away last week at the age of 88. Every time my grandparents would come to visit us in California we would go with them to this small independent grocery store that carried, among other things, 10 pound bars of gourmet bittersweet chocolate. The store would […]
