Smoky Almond Chocolate Bark with Sea Salt

by Shoshana on July 21, 2014 · 2 comments

When I found out that this month’s Kosher Connection Link-up was “Smoky” I knew I wanted to make a dessert that incorporated that smokey flavor. Since I don’t have any fancy smoking devices like they have in some of the fanciest restaurants I couldn’t make an elegant dessert with some kind of fancy smoke that […]

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. […]

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

Even though my mom is not the kind of woman who loves everything pink (her color is purple) there is something about planning an elegant Mothers’ Day brunch that makes me want to make pretty pink cupcakes for dessert. These strawberry lemonade cupcakes are perfect for an elegant brunch, an afternoon tea party, or really […]

Potato Chip Bark

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 […]
