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 […]

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 […]

by Shoshana on March 7, 2014 · 5 comments

Holidays are a time where we all tend to let loose a little. Especially when it comes to food. It is a good excuse to have that one extra cookie or an extra serving of cake. I believe there is nothing wrong with occasionally overindulging on special occasion. The traditional foods we associate with each […]

Every year I try to come up with new and fun hamentashen flavors. I always make sure to make a bunch of the traditional poppy because those are our favorites, but it wouldn’t be Purim around here without at least a few crazy hamentashen (like s’more or chocolate chip cookie dough). I have some fun […]

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 […]

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 […]

Apple Cider Concentrate

by Shoshana on January 23, 2014 · 6 comments

I love the feeling of coming in from the cold and wrapping your hands around a steaming hot mug of something delicious. This winter (or the little of it that we have had here in California) my treat of choice has been steaming hot apple cider. I love the crisp sweetness of the apple paired […]

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 […]

Gingerbread Caramel Corn

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 […]

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 […]
