This raspberry limeade is a variation on the strawberry lemonade I posted a little while back. Once I got started macerating fruit with sugar to make a syrup for drinks the possibilities seemed endless. Fruit, citrus, and sugar and you have the makings of the perfect summer drink. This is one of my favorite so […]

There are some foods that are so intrinsically tied up in memories that I can never eat them without thinking of the person who first introduced me to that food. For me, halvah is one of those foods.  I have fond memories of visiting my Uncle Henry and Aunt Helen in Miami when I was a child. Their apartment, […]

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 […]

This summer we started the tradition in my family of having homemade strawberry lemonade on Shabbat afternoons. We often have friends over and end up sitting outside on the patio watching the kids play in the backyard. Perhaps it is because I am eight months pregnant, but I have to say the idea of sitting […]

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 […]
