Chocolate Olive Oil Challah with Sea Salt

by Shoshana on April 23, 2014 · 2 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 · 2 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 · 1 comment

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

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 […]

Candy Cane Jo-Jo Brownies

I absolutely adore grocery shopping. That is not to say that every trip to the store with kids in tow is a pleasure, but when I do manage to take a “store-cataion” (a store vacation, ie a trip to the store with only the baby so that no one is begging me for everything they […]

Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

by Shoshana on December 24, 2013 · 11 comments

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. […]

Lemon Cheesecake Truffles

by Shoshana on June 13, 2013 · 13 comments

As a food blogger I often find myself with assorted dribs and drabs of leftover frostings, fillings or other ingredients in my refrigerator just waiting to be turned into something new. When making desserts to post on the blog I will often make partial recipes so that we don’t end up with quite so much […]
