Thanksgiving Pie Fries

by Shoshana on November 20, 2014 · 3 comments

With Thanksgiving right around the corner it is time to talk about pie. I always make lots of traditional pies for Thanksgiving but sometimes it is fun to play with my food a little bit. I made these fun pie fries last year for the Joy of Kosher website but never got around to posting […]

Now that I’ve started making Thanksgivukkah recipes my mind keeps spinning with fun possibilities. These pumpkin pie filled sufganiot are my latest idea for a dessert to enjoy while celebrating the one in a lifetime confluence of Thanksgiving and Chanukkah. Classic sufganiot are my favorite chanukkah food, and I don’t even really like doughnuts all […]

October is pumpkin month. They are everywhere and in everything, and to tell you the truth I am thrilled. I have been eating pumpkin with almost every meal and am loving it. (In case anyone was wondering, pumpkin slices sprinkled with a bit of pumpkin pie spice and salt and roasted at high temperature until […]



Pumpkin Bread Pudding

There is a pop-up pumpkin patch that we drive past on the way to my kids’ school. The kind that most of the year is an empty lot but in the fall transforms into a kids wonderland, with pumpkins, hay bales and a petting zoo. Every single day on our way to and from school […]

This month the theme for the Kosher Connection recipes is stuffing. While my turkey stuffing has no place on a parve blog, given that it is made with schmaltz and chicken stock, I still wanted to participate in the theme so I started thinking about stuffing related desserts. My first thought was a bread pudding, […]

This time of year pumpkins are everywhere! A couple of weeks ago we took the kids to the local pumpkin patch. While they busied themselves painting silly faces on their pumpkins I walked around and picked out one of each variety pumpkin that was good for eating. Needless to say we have been eating a […]

With Thanksgiving fast approaching it seems only fitting to post another pumpkin recipe that would be a perfect finish for a Thanksgiving meal.

Easy Pumpkin Ice Cream

A couple of weeks ago, late in the afternoon on a Friday, I asked my son what he thought we should make for dessert for shabbat. Without even pausing for a second he enthusiastically responded “ice cream.” Clearly he is my son, since ice cream is one of my favorite things to make and eat […]

Lately I have been feeling tired. I imagine that it is related to the fact that I am pregnant, but all I know for sure is that I am having trouble getting up off the couch to tackle complicated baking projects. I look at the recipes, and they sound amazing, but I can’t seem to […]

Sometimes it is nice to make a dessert that is knock-your-socks-off delicious without being much work at all. The kind of cake where you can just dump the ingredients into the mixer and turn it on without worrying about adding things in the right order a little bit at a time. This pumpkin cake is […]
