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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cinnamon Hearts

by Shoshana on March 12, 2014 · 5 comments

I absolutely adore making candy (as is evidenced by all the candy recipes I have posted.) The thing about making candy is that most recipes make quite a bit more candy than one family should have sitting on the counter for easy snacking. This is especially a problem since I tend to get into candy […]

Blood Orange Marshmallows

My family doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day but I have to admit this time of year I find myself getting caught up in the fun of all the heart shaped treats and the pink and red everything. There is something about it that just makes me smile, and I find myself reaching for my heart cookie […]

Not So Plain Vanilla Ice Cream

by Shoshana on February 5, 2014 · 13 comments

I have never understood the use of the term “plain vanilla” to describe something boring. I happen to love vanilla and nothing comes close to the fragrance of a fresh vanilla bean. That being said, there are not so many “plain vanilla” recipes on this blog. That is because vanilla is one of the most […]

Peppermint Patty Footballs

by Shoshana on January 29, 2014 · 9 comments

For someone who is not much of a football lover it feels a bit strange to be posting not one but two football shaped desserts, but I have to say that this year I am very excited about the football food. (And my family is very excited about the Superbowl. The three year old asks […]

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 […]

Gingerbread Caramel Corn

by Shoshana on December 19, 2013 · 14 comments

As I have said many times before I absolutely adore the foods and flavors of the Christmas season. I would never let a small thing, like the fact that we don’t celebrate Christmas, keep me from filing my kitchen with all kinds of holiday treats and goodies. I turn my kitchen into a cookie and […]

The week leading up to Thanksgiving is all about pies. I am seeing all kinds of different interesting pie recipes pop up on pinterest, along with everyone’s tips for fool proof crusts. (In case you were wondering these are my favorite parve ones). I love making pies, and will be making plenty for Thanksgiving, but […]
