I love holidays that provide the excuse to play with our food. With the Fourth of July right around the corner I wanted to do something fun with the colors of the holiday. Months ago I played around some with the idea of putting gummy candy inside lollipops (stay tuned for more about that another […]

These marshmallows are like eating a bite of summer. The sweetness of raspberry lemonade captured in a cloud of fluffy marshmallow. Perfect for imagining you are on the back porch sipping a big glass of lemonade and enjoying the summer weather. I make a lot of marshmallows and these are absolutely one of my favorites. […]

While I learned a lot in the classrooms at college, almost ten years later what I remember the most are the things I learned from my classmates and friends.

Chanukkah Marshmallows

by Shoshana on December 3, 2010 · 6 comments

On Chanukkah I like to serve some kind of Chanukkah themed food at dinner each night. Traditional Chanukkah foods, such as latkes and sufganiot, are usually fried in oil to commemorate the miracle of the oil in the Chanukkah story.
