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 […]

Root Beer Crunch

Sometimes the best dishes come about as a way of using up leftovers. That is exactly what happened with this dessert, which has quickly become my kids’ most requested treat. Here is how it came about. For my kids’ birthday parties I always ask them what food they want to serve. For my oldest son’s […]

Pomegranate Tarts

by Shoshana on September 15, 2014 · 7 comments

After apples and honey, pomegranates are  one of the most ubiquitous foods on the Rosh Hashana table.  Because the pomegranate has so many seeds it is a symbol of plenty. On Rosh Hashana we state the hope “that our merits increase like (the seeds of) a pomegranate” in the coming year. I always try to incorporate […]

It may be after Labor Day, but with the temperatures being up in the high 80s this week it is still definitely popsicle weather. These strawberry lemonade popsicles are a summer favorite. The combination of the sweet strawberries and the tangy lemon make them the perfect refreshing treat. My kids have even been forgoing desserts at […]

Smoky Almond Chocolate Bark with Sea Salt

by Shoshana on July 21, 2014 · 10 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. […]

Chocolate Caramel Cups

by Shoshana on June 1, 2014 · 11 comments

There are some types of recipes that are very easy to make dairy-free. Some (like marshmallows, my favorite) don’t require dairy at all. Others (like many cookies) only need simple substitution of ingredients and you have a delicious dairy-free version of your favorite treat. Then there are recipes that are much much more difficult. A […]

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 […]

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  number of […]
