One of the hardest things to replicate with gluten-free products is the stretchy, chewy texture of bread. I have experimented with many different methods of recreating the feel without the gluten protein (some of which went straight into the trash), but after all of the trial-and-error I think I have finally figured it out! Ground […]
This was the most popular dish I made over the first days of Pesach (Passover). Other than draining the spinach, which can be a bit time consuming, it’s really simple to throw together and into the oven. This recipe easily doubles if you are having a very large crowd, and it also freezes well.
Wow, it has been a long time since I posted anything! We just bought and moved into our first home so it’s been an incredibly hectic few months. I promise I’ll post pictures of the new place when it’s less of a disaster zone 🙂 This is a little late for Rosh Hashana (Jewish New […]
I love carrot cake, but most recipes produce a very oily and heavy cake. So I set out to create all of the flavors of the perfect carrot cake in a much healthier gluten-free and dairy-free version. Yum! I frosted these with a cinnamon cream cheese frosting in honor of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot […]
One of my favorite things about summer is stone fruits, which make the most delicious jam. I’ve gotten really into making my own jams, because I can control the flavors, spices, and especially the sugar content. So when I saw that Costco had 3 lbs of ripe apricots for $8.49 (less than $3/lb!!), I knew […]
For the Super Bowl this year, AK really wanted a hot dog bar. We made some of the usual hot dog toppings (caramelized onions, pickled cabbage), but I was at Shoppers and red peppers were on sale 4 for $5, which is amazingly cheap at least in my area, so I wanted to do some […]
I started experimenting with jam last winter when I started reading an awesome blog called Food in Jars. If you have any interest in canning, or just want to see some cool recipes, definitely check it out. Unfortunately I don’t really have space to actually can and store anything, so I stick with refrigerator jams.
I have tried a number of scone recipe recently, but I’ve been looking for something that’s similar in texture, but with less fat and less sugar. Something more like a breakfast bar than a dessert. So when I stumbled across this recipe, I was really happy.
It’s been a whirlwind couple of months–I moved into a new apartment, married the man of my dreams (seriously not saying that to be cheesy–he’s pretty much the best thing that has ever happened to me), and I made the decision to leave my job for a very exciting new opportunity. I like to do […]
Like a good Jewish girl, I’m a fan of lox, but I’m not a fan of the chemically flavor you get from packaged lox. I’ve seen lots of recipes for gravlax, so I decided to make it for Passover since it doesn’t keep long enough for AK and me to finish it all in time […]
