Smoky Almond Chocolate Bark with Sea Salt

by Shoshana on July 21, 2014 · 10 comments

When I found out that this month’s Kosher Connection Link-up was “Smoky” I knew I wanted to make a dessert that incorporated that smokey flavor. Since I don’t have any fancy smoking devices like they have in some of the fanciest restaurants I couldn’t make an elegant dessert with some kind of fancy smoke that […]

S’more cookie pops

by Shoshana on July 9, 2014 · 3 comments

This last week we went camping at Big Basin Redwoods State Park. I love camping because it allows us to be completely unplugged for a few days. With no cell reception there is no way to even check email and it is nice to have nothing to do but sit around the campfire and talk. […]

Chocolate Caramel Cups

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 […]

Chocolate Olive Oil Challah with Sea Salt

by Shoshana on April 23, 2014 · 10 comments

I have to admit I really do not mind Passover food. We tend not to eat that many grains regularly so the food we eat during the week of Passover really isn’t that different from the rest of the year. I like the creativity it takes to make desserts taste great without grains and, I […]

It has been busy around here this week with all of the Passover cooking. We have hosted over 100 people so far for meals and we still have a few more days of the holiday left to go. In order to try to make things a bit easier I didn’t make any of the big […]

Easy Homemade Nutella

by Shoshana on April 10, 2014 · 2 comments

There are some things that it is dangerous to know just how easy they are to make. Like this chocolate hazelnut spread. I have been saying for years that I should try making a parve nutella like spread, but for one reason or another never got around to it. When I found a bag of […]

Cranberry Orange Matzolah Bark

by Shoshana on April 1, 2014 · 3 comments

I like looking at the Passover displays in the grocery stores, even when they put them out earlier than I might like. I’m always curious about what the new products will be each year. I don’t usually buy many packaged passover products like cereals or cake mixes because I like to make all my own […]

Healthy Banana Honey Ice Cream Sandwiches

by Shoshana on March 28, 2014 · 3 comments

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 […]

Wasabi Truffles

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 ┬ánumber of […]

In spite of the fact I run a dessert blog I actually try to limit the amount of sugar my family eats on a ┬áregular 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 […]

Peanut Butter Football Dip

by Shoshana on January 20, 2014 · 7 comments

I have to admit I am not much of a football person. If a game is on I might watch it for a few minutes, but usually I just do other things while the rest of my family shouts at the tv. The exception is the superbowl. I absolutely adore superbowl parties! Truth be told […]
