For years I said that meringue desserts were not for me. I thought they were no more than sweetened air, and I would always pick something else (like chocolate mousse) if I had a choice. Well it turns out I was wrong. Meringue desserts can be utterly delightful. Their simplicity makes them the perfect vehicle for […]

Grain-Free Morning Glory Muffins

by Shoshana on April 6, 2014 · 4 comments

When I was in middle school there was a fantastic muffin store in our town called Suzanne’s muffins. We loved those muffins. My dad would bring home a dozen low-fat morning glory muffins and they be gone by the next day. They had other flavors as well but the morning glory muffins were always my […]



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  number of […]



Black Forest Coconut Candy

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



Apple and Honey Trifle

by Shoshana on August 23, 2013 · 17 comments

I know it’s still August, but with Rosh Hashana so early this year it is time to start talking about honey cake. I often feel that in many ways honey cake (lekach) is kind of like the Jewish equivalent of fruitcake. It is the baked good that everyone has to have on the table and […]



Strawberry Meyer Lemon Trifle

by Shoshana on June 5, 2013 · 11 comments

Trifle is one of those desserts that isn’t one of the first things that comes to mind when I am planning dessert, but every time I do make it I wonder why I don’t make it more often. Layers of cake, fruit, and custard blend seamlessly into a delicious and beautiful dessert that is better […]



Passover Granola Bars

by Shoshana on March 20, 2013 · 9 comments

One of the things that is tricky on Passover is coming up with good portable snacks. The kids are off of school which means I don’t have to worry about packing lunches, but I still need snacks for all of our outings. Sure, we eat a lot of nuts, dried fruit, and string cheese but […]



Pina Colada Popsicles

by Shoshana on July 23, 2012 · 11 comments

I think I have made more popsicles this summer than the rest of my life combined. In my mind popsicles are the epitome of summer fun, and my boys are absolutely crazy about them. The little one, who is just starting to talk, will ask for popsicles by holding up his hand and pretending to […]



Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Shoshana on March 26, 2012 · 8 comments

When I was a growing up I never felt deprived on Passover. Quite the opposite in fact. In an effort to make sure the kids didn’t feel like Passover was too much of a hardship my normally health conscious mother would fill the pantry with all kinds of sweets and treats we didn’t usually get […]



Coconut Chocolate Ganache Tartletts

by Shoshana on January 18, 2012 · 3 comments

Over the past few months I have been playing around in the kitchen trying to perfect my parve pie crust recipe. I have been using different recipe ratios, with different fats and a variety of methods, and am slowly narrowing in on what I think is my perfect pie crust. In my mind the perfect […]
