Grain-Free Zucchini Bread

by Shoshana on March 25, 2014 · 9 comments

Over the past several months I have been experimenting quite a bit with Paleo and Grain-Free baking. I have  shifted how our family eats so that we eat a minimal amount of packaged, processed and refined foods. (I do all of the shopping and cooking so they just go along). I am always looking for […]

Banana Cream Pie

by Shoshana on March 14, 2014 · 6 comments

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 […]

Mixed Berry Chia Jam

by Shoshana on March 5, 2014 · 11 comments

I read a lot of food blogs. I am constantly bookmarking recipes I want to try, things that look delicious, or things that inspire me to create new recipes. Occasionally, though, I come across a recipe that I am not content to just bookmark for later. It just grabs me and I have to make […]

Cranberry Pear Tart

by Shoshana on December 31, 2013 · 10 comments

Whenever I walk into a bakery and see the glistening beauty of a French fruit tart I always think of my mom. Our birthday tradition when I was growing up was to serve breakfast in bed to the person who has having the birthday. We would all pile into the bed an enjoy breakfast together […]

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 […]

Hot Tamale Snickerdoodles

by Shoshana on November 12, 2013 · 7 comments

In keeping with my assertion that fall is the perfect season to enjoy cinnamon flavored treats I wanted to share another cinnamon dessert to enjoy throughout these fall months. Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. They are perfect eaten by themselves, but are even better when paired with a nice mug of apple cider […]

Fun with Mike and Ikes

Now that the fall holidays are over and the baby is almost two months old (when did that happen!) I am hoping to carve out a bit more time for blogging again. Since time is a bit on the short side these days I wanted to jump back into the swing of things with some […]

Apple and Honey Trifle

by Shoshana on August 23, 2013 · 11 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 […]

Homemade Halvah

by Shoshana on July 24, 2013 · 8 comments

There are some foods that are so intrinsically tied up in memories that I can never eat them without thinking of the person who first introduced me to that food. For me, halvah is one of those foods.  I have fond memories of visiting my Uncle Henry and Aunt Helen in Miami when I was a child. Their apartment, […]

As some of my regular readers may have noticed over the past year I have been participating in the Kosher Connection Link-ups, posting a recipe each month in keeping an assigned theme.

Mocha Ice Cream

by Shoshana on July 17, 2013 · 15 comments

Since July is National Ice Cream month I thought it was high time I post an ice cream recipe. I happen to love ice cream, and never really need an excuse to make it, but an entire month dedicated to ice cream is absolutely not something I want to miss! While I love a cold […]
