Lemon Poppyseed Hamentashen

by Shoshana on February 28, 2014 · 8 comments

My oldest son is a great help when I am trying to brainstorm fun ideas for new recipes. He has a great sense of flavors and isn’t shy about asking for crazy or over the top combinations. When I asked him what flavor hamentashen I should make this year his answer was a resounding “poppy”. […]

Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

by Shoshana on July 3, 2013 · 10 comments

This summer we started the tradition in my family of having homemade strawberry lemonade on Shabbat afternoons. We often have friends over and end up sitting outside on the patio watching the kids play in the backyard. Perhaps it is because I am eight months pregnant, but I have to say the idea of sitting […]

Lemon Cheesecake Truffles

by Shoshana on June 13, 2013 · 13 comments

As a food blogger I often find myself with assorted dribs and drabs of leftover frostings, fillings or other ingredients in my refrigerator just waiting to be turned into something new. When making desserts to post on the blog I will often make partial recipes so that we don’t end up with quite so much […]

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 […]

Fresh Fruit Sauces for Blinzes

Shavout, coming seven weeks after Passover, is the holiday that celebrates the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai. It starts tonight and I have spent the last few days cooking up a storm. It is traditional to eat dairy meals on Shavout so it is nice to be making different things than I usually […]

This past Sunday I took the kids to the farmers market for the first time in months. This being California the farmers markets are open year round, but the baby growing in my belly has left me exhausted. It takes quite a bit of energy  to navigate the farmers market with two small children, so it’s […]

Limonana marshmallows

My husband is currently on a trip in Israel. Talking to him everyday about all the things he is seeing and experiencing has meant that Israel is very much on all of our minds (especially my older son who keeps reminding my husband that next time he wants to go too). With Yom Haatzmaut, Israel’s […]

Almond paste is one of my favorite things. I love the sweet almond flavor and use it in as many things as I can. It can get expensive to buy the tiny cans of almond paste they sell in the store so I buy the huge industrial sized can and keep the almond paste in […]

Limonana bars

Earlier this summer we took our kids to Israel for the first time. We all had a great time and it was wonderful to experience Israel through the eyes of our children. Part of what we were the most excited about in planning the trip was the opportunity to introduce our kids to some of […]

Gluten-Free Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

by Shoshana on June 2, 2011 · 3 comments

I have to admit that I still have quite a bit of skepticism when it comes to gluten-free baked goods. That is not to say that I have never had great gluten-free desserts, but they tend to be things that aren’t supposed to have gluten in them in the first place, like marshmallows, ice cream […]
