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 […]

Grilled Peanut Butter S’more Sandwiches

by Shoshana on August 20, 2012 · 10 comments

With school starting this week and summer coming to an end it seems fitting to try to squeeze in just one more summer barbecue. Sure I live in California where we can grill most of the year, but there is something about the long summer days that make me want to get the coals going […]

Oreo Wedding Favors

It has been a crazy couple of weeks around here. I literally have barely had time to check my email, let alone get a blog post together. I am hoping things will calm down and I will be able to get back into a normal rhythm next week, but in the meantime I wanted to […]

S’more Truffles

by Shoshana on May 6, 2012 · 7 comments

There is something about s’mores that just makes me smile. Perhaps it is the fact that it is almost impossible to eat a s’more without geting messy, or the fact that eating s’mores reminds me of wonderful times sitting around a campfire. Or perhaps it is just the fact that they are utterly delicious. Regular […]

Peppermint Cookie Bark

by Shoshana on December 22, 2011 · 3 comments

Even though I don’t celebrate Christmas I wholeheartedly look forward to the sweets of the season. Gingerbread, eggnog, and peppermint flavored cookies and candy, I love it all. My absolute favorite, though, is peppermint bark. While in theory there isn’t really a season for peppermint, it just doesn’t quite feel right to make peppermint bark […]

Gingerbread Marshmallows

by Shoshana on December 19, 2011 · 3 comments

When thinking about what candy I was going to make for holiday gifts this year I knew I wanted to made something gingerbread. My son has been begging me to make gingerbread men cookies so I have had gingerbread on the mind. I played with the idea of making gingerbread fudge, but when I got […]

Apple and Honey Marshmallows 2.0

by Shoshana on September 19, 2011 · 4 comments

These marshmallows are a new and improved version of the Apple and Honey Marshmallows I made two years ago for Rosh Hashanah. Since I was still relatively new to making marshmallows, and wanted to use recipes I knew would work, I made those by layering Eileen Talanian’s apple marshmallows on top of her honey marshmallows.
