There are some types of recipes that are very easy to make dairy-free. Some (like marshmallows, my favorite) don’t require dairy at all. Others (like many cookies) only need simple substitution of ingredients and you have a delicious dairy-free version of your favorite treat. Then there are recipes that are much much more difficult. A […]

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 […]

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 […]

Since it is cookie season I have been playing around with a bunch of different cookie recipes. These cookies are a bit different than most in that in addition to sweet caramel the layers of these cookies are made up of salty crunchy crackers. Like many people, I love the combination of sweet and salty. […]

As I have said many times before I absolutely adore the foods and flavors of the Christmas season. I would never let a small thing, like the fact that we don’t celebrate Christmas, keep me from filing my kitchen with all kinds of holiday treats and goodies. I turn my kitchen into a cookie and […]

The week leading up to Thanksgiving is all about pies. I am seeing all kinds of different interesting pie recipes pop up on pinterest, along with everyone’s tips for fool proof crusts. (In case you were wondering these are my favorite parve ones). I love making pies, and will be making plenty for Thanksgiving, but […]

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 […]

Most mornings breakfast around here is usually pretty rushed. With getting everyone up, dressed, and to school there isn’t much time for leisurely breakfasts. That is why long weekends are the perfect opportunity to make special breakfasts that feel more like a special event rather than just a quick meal before we go about our […]

Monkey Bread

Last week I attempted to make gluten-free challah using the brioche recipe from Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. Being new to gluten-free baking I didn’t realize the difference substituting white rice flour for brown rice flour would have in the end results. I ended up with a huge vat of very sticky dough […]
