I have to admit that I have been a bit slow to jump on the one-ingredient banana ice cream bandwagon. I keep seeing recipes for creamy banana “ice cream” popping up everywhere but as someone who takes ice cream very seriously I was skeptical to say the least. That being said I am so glad […]

Over the past several months I have been experimenting quite a bit with Paleo and Grain-Free baking. I have  shifted how our family eats so that we eat a minimal amount of packaged, processed and refined foods. (I do all of the shopping and cooking so they just go along). I am always looking for […]

Years ago, when I lived in New York, I would attended the chocolate show every fall. Hundred of vendors selling all kinds of amazing things chocolate related, it was always great fun. They even had a fashion show of dresses made entirely of chocolate. Of course the best part was always the copious  number of […]

Today is March 14th. 3.14. A day known in some circles as Pi(e) day. Every year I see other people posting pies on their blogs in honor of Pi day and I kick myself for not taking that opportunity (can you tell that I am secretly a math nerd?). So this year I decided to […]

I absolutely adore making candy (as is evidenced by all the candy recipes I have posted.) The thing about making candy is that most recipes make quite a bit more candy than one family should have sitting on the counter for easy snacking. This is especially a problem since I tend to get into candy […]

Holidays are a time where we all tend to let loose a little. Especially when it comes to food. It is a good excuse to have that one extra cookie or an extra serving of cake. I believe there is nothing wrong with occasionally overindulging on special occasion. The traditional foods we associate with each […]

I read a lot of food blogs. I am constantly bookmarking recipes I want to try, things that look delicious, or things that inspire me to create new recipes. Occasionally, though, I come across a recipe that I am not content to just bookmark for later. It just grabs me and I have to make […]

In spite of the fact I run a dessert blog I actually try to limit the amount of sugar my family eats on a  regular basis. That is why I love making healthy sweet treats that are perfect for satisfying a sweet craving without any refined sugars. This Black Forest Coconut Candy is perfect for […]

My oldest son is a great help when I am trying to brainstorm fun ideas for new recipes. He has a great sense of flavors and isn’t shy about asking for crazy or over the top combinations. When I asked him what flavor hamentashen I should make this year his answer was a resounding “poppy”. […]

Every year I try to come up with new and fun hamentashen flavors. I always make sure to make a bunch of the traditional poppy because those are our favorites, but it wouldn’t be Purim around here without at least a few crazy hamentashen (like s’more or chocolate chip cookie dough). I have some fun […]

With Purim coming up in just a few weeks it is time to start thinking about homemade candy. Some years I go all out with the homemade candies, making molded chocolates and candied fruit that takes weeks of preparation. This year I am going much more simply, only making things that can be made in […]
