Peanut Butter S’more Bars

by Shoshana on May 6, 2015 · 2 comments

If you are looking for the ultimate decadent indulgence this is it. This is what would happen if a s’more and a peanut butter cup got together and had a baby. It is even more amazing than it sounds. The slight saltiness of the peanut butter is the perfect foil for the sweet gooey oozing […]

Neapolitan Zebra Hamentashen

I don’t even know what to say about these hamentashen. They are just so much fun. Every year I try to come up with new creative hamentashen ideas that will push the envelope just a little bit further. While I think that no hamentahen recipe I think up will ever be quite as popular as […]

Lemondoodles

If December desserts are all about decadence and indulgence, then January desserts are about simplicity and restraint. It is about letting simple flavors shine in uncomplicated ways, about finding that sweet finish to a meal that will leave you satisfied without feeling weighed down. Maybe something a poached pear, a light mousse, or, of course, […]

Chankuuah is coming and that means the deep fryer has come in from the garage. I pretty much only fry things two times of year, Chanukkah and Super Bowl Sunday, but once I get the fryer out my mind starts spinning will all the things I could fry. Other years for Chanukkah I have made […]

Potato Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies

I can’t believe it is already December. But since it is, that means it is officially cookie season. That isn’t to say that cookies aren’t welcome any time of year, but with cookie exchanges and holiday gifts coming up soon I thought this would be a good time to post some of my favorite cookie […]

A few years ago a recipe for oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies took the internet by storm. I have to admit I was intrigued but I never got around to making them. It seemed like a lot of effort and the finished cookies were so huge I never really found the right occasion to make […]

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. […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

by Shoshana on June 18, 2014 · 3 comments

As much as I love making big complicated desserts, I find that lately when I ponder what dessert to make I tend to turn towards something simpler, like cookies. They are easy to keep in the freezer and make a great for a last minute treat. Also, summer doesn’t feel like the time for complicated […]

Gluten-free Lemon Bars

by Shoshana on June 10, 2014 · 4 comments

I have been making a lot of gluten-free lemon bars lately. Every week I ask my son what gluten-free shabbat treat he would like for synagogue and almost every week he answers “lemon bars.” Occasionally he asks for lemon cupcakes, but usually it is lemon bars. This is the same kid who has asked for […]

Ever since making those amazing cake batter oreo bars earlier this week I have had cake batter on the brain. There is something about eating cake batter flavored treats that makes me feel like smiling. The flavor evokes great memories of licking the beaters while baking and that just makes me happy. I have to […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Mandelbrot

by Shoshana on April 8, 2014 · 5 comments

Mandelbrot (or mandelbread as we call them) have a special place in our family’s heart. Mandelbrot are basically the Jewish version of biscotti. They are a similar twice baked cookie, but they have a bit of a softer texture than the Italian version because they have more fat in them. My husband’s grandmother was known […]
