  • Tahini Oatmeal Cookies

    As you all know, I love cookies, crinkle cookies, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, you name it ...if it’s a cookie than I probably already like it.  Oatmeal cookies are another favorite but I felt it was time for a do over.  I nixed the raisins and added tahini instead. For those of you who don’t know, tahini is a smooth creamy paste made from ground sesame seeds.  It is very trendy right now do to its undeniable health benefits and unique ability to work beautif...
  • Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

    I am known for my huge cookie obsession. Not a day goes by without me consuming at least one cookie. I eat practically all the cookies out there, chocolate chip, oatmeal, crinkle, you name it.  Basically, if its a cookie I am here for it. But I'll be honest, when my cookie cravings come on I don't always want to wait for the butter to soften and to make a whole elaborate cookie. I need something super simple but at the same time yummy and satisfying.  These Chocolate Dipped ...
  • Mexican Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

    Today, I think I have found one of my new favorite cookies of all time, Mexican Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. This classic cookie with inspiration from Mexican flavors has all the things you need for a great cookie and more. Just like any great cookie it has a chewy center and a slightly crunchy exterior. While it may look like your typical Chocolate Crinkle Cookie what makes this cookie unique is its flavor. This cookie has a deep chocolaty flavor that pairs so well with the earthy ...
  • Blueberry Cardamom Hand Pies

    A few weeks ago we had a fun day in Connnecticut where we went blueberry picking and out to dinner for delicious kosher Indian food for with Naomi Nachman's family.  It was a jam packed and super fun day catching up and , of course, talking a lot about food! Both the blueberry picking and the Indian food are what inspired to make this out of the box dessert...Blueberry Cardamom Hand Pies.  I mean, can a Southern classic with an Indian twist be any more on brand for me?!?&nb...
  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cakes

    Today is my 15th birthday! Wow...time has really flown. I am so grateful for everything that has happened this year. This was definitely the best year yet. Some of the highlights of this year were, meeting Lilly Singh, making cooking videos with Jamie Geller, working for Susie Fishbein, being hired as a professional food photographer, having a recipe of mine in a published cookbook, winning a trip to Orlando for my family from a box of cereal and much much more.  I am sure ...
  • Churro Hamantaschen (Cookies)

    It's official, Purim is less than a week away! Before you know it, everyone will be dressing up and eating tons of hamantaschen. Being the cookie fanatic that I am, I just can't eat enough hamantaschen. Aren't they just great? Every year the highlight of Purim, for me, is when my dad makes his amazing hamantaschen. It's really fun to make them with him in the kitchen. He even makes a surprisingly delicious gluten free hamantaschen for my mom. But, to be honest, I get tired of the typical&...
  • Chanukah Sugar Cookies with Buttercream Frosting

    The weather is starting to get chilly which means Chanukah is around the corner! Besides the festive feel of the days, my favorite part of the holiday, as with most, is the special foods we make this time of the year.  I love consecutive days of yummy rich dairy meals of latkes with sour cream, doughnuts with cream filling, and for my family yummy butter cookies made with Breakstone’s Butter.   Cookies made with Breakstone’s Butter have a smoother texture than those made ...
  • Honey Apple Scones

    So the chagim are right around the corner which means we will all be cooking up a storm in our kitchens, preparing delicious lunches and dinners. But I feel like we don’t pay attention much to our breakfast. The past Rosh Hashanahs I just have honey cake in the morning with a bowl of cereal. So I decided to step it up with my Honey Apple Scones. They are filled with honey and diced apple. It’s the perfect breakfast dish for the Chagim!
  • Basic French Macarons

    Happy Passover! (And Earth Day!) My favorite dessert to make for Passover is French Macarons. They are the delicate cookies with a crunchy exterior and weightless interior. They have a marshmallow-like, chewy texture in your mouth and are filled with everything from cream cheese to chocolate ganache. It has become a favorite in my house after I began making them a few Passovers ago. I also make sure to drop some off to my friend Ben's mom, who loves them! If there...
  • Gluten Free Hamantashen

    A super yummy, gluten free Hamantaschen recipe! In my house, making Hamantaschen is an activity that includes the whole family. It is one my brother's favorite time to be in the kitchen! Every Purim we make Regular Hamantaschen and Gluten Free Hamantaschen for my mom. (By the way, my mom isn't gluten free by choice. I know it's trendy now to be gluten free. But I can assure you my mom definitely doesn't think so!) You can fill these with whatever you like. That's ...
  • Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

    If you know me, then you know that I love anything and everything that is peanut butter. If it has peanuts or peanut butter in it, I am into it. I especially love peanut butter cookies. I am a cookie fanatic and I can't decide if i enjoy making them or eating them more. I actually really enjoy making cookies by hand, with a wooden spoon. One Yom Tov, I was in the mood for cookies but couldn't make them because I couldn't use the electric hand mixer. But I wasn't gonna let that stop ...

    I am always looking for quick and easy desserts. The kind that are great "go to's" for the last minute invite to someone's house for Shabbos. These cookies are the definition of a yummy, quick dessert. Also, all of the ingredients are in everybody's pantry. So if you need a last minute dessert to bring to a Super Bowl party these cookies are a great idea! I decided to jazz up the typical peanut butter cookie for the Super Bowl. It looks really impressive if you bring it to a party, ...
