Sometimes you just need a fun dessert. Also sometimes you need to use up a bag of mini marshmallows you bought for Passover and never ended up making into anything. These s’more brownies were a huge hit; they could also be a fun birthday party treat, and you could make these in muffin tins for […]
Store-bought Passover desserts are the worst. Not only are they ridiculously expensive, they aren’t even very good. But you can make your own delicious cookies! So don’t buy Passover desserts anymore 🙂
A number of people have told me recently that although they want to bake gluten-free, they don’t want to have to buy all of the gluten-free flours I use in my recipes. While I generally find that an all-purpose gluten-free flour mix just doesn’t cut it for some baked goods, for this particular cookie recipe […]
The holiday season is an excellent excuse to bake ridiculous amounts of cookies. Luckily, my office is only too happy to gobble them up! I’ve experimented with a couple of different versions of this chocolate crinkle cookie recipe and I think I’m finally happy that I’ve got the right texture and flavor–lightly chocolatey, a hint […]
When I went gluten-free, I also had to go oat-free. I REALLY miss oats, but as much as I pretend they don’t make me sick, even gluten-free oats just don’t agree with me. Because of this, I haven’t been able to eat my absolute favorite cookie in the world, oatmeal cookies.
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 know I’ve posted a lot of roasted nut recipes, but hey, I like nuts 🙂 This time I went sweet and spicy with curry, ginger, and maple. I chose to use half almonds and half cashews, but you could use any nut you want–macadamia, pecan, walnut, etc. These nuts aren’t too spicy, so add […]
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 […]
