Smoky Almond Chocolate Bark with Sea Salt

by Shoshana on July 21, 2014 · 4 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

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 […]

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 […]

Cinnamon Hearts

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 […]

Grain-Free Hamentashen

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 […]

I read a lot of food blogs. I am constantly bookmarking recipes I want to try, things that look delicious, or things that inspire me to create new recipes. Occasionally, though, I come across a recipe that I am not content to just bookmark for later. It just grabs me and I have to make […]

In spite of the fact I run a dessert blog I actually try to limit the amount of sugar my family eats on a ┬áregular basis. That is why I love making healthy sweet treats that are perfect for satisfying a sweet craving without any refined sugars. This Black Forest Coconut Candy is perfect for […]
