  • 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 ...
  • Pumpkin Spice Churros

    It’s officially Fall, which means the air is getting colder, the leaves are falling from the trees, and pumpkin spice is EVERYWHERE! Being a non-coffee drinker myself, I only got on the trend of pumpkin spice last year when I made some decadent Pumpkin Spice Buns for the blog. For those of you who have never heard of it, pumpkin spice is the seasoning typically used when baking a pumpkin pie. It gained popularity when coffee shops around the country started adding it to their drinks ...
  • Apple Tart Squares with Honey Glaze

    Today I am sharing my recipe for these delicious Apple Tart Squares with Honey Glaze that really highlights the beauty of this season's bounty of apples with the signature crunch from puff pastry dough. What isn't there to love about puff pastry dough?!

Once defrost...
  • 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...
  • Rustic Berry Galette

    This delicious dessert that isn't easy as pie, it's easier! Let me break it down for you...Galette is a French term that refers to a variety of flat, round cakes, typically made with a flaky pastry/pie dough. As opposed to a tradtional pie, where the dough is places in a pie dish then the filling is places inside and finaly topped with more dough, a gallet is assembled differently. Instead, the filling is placed directly on top of a sheet of rolled out dough and then the edges of that ...

  • S’mores Pizza

    Last week two of my friends, Manny and Sam, came over to study math with me for the big math final the next day. Before they came, I made some pizza dough so that we could make pizza for lunch.

I have alway loved s'mores and consider pizza one of my favorite foods so I was excited to try this different ...
  • 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.

  • Mini Balsamic Strawberry Pavlovas

    These Pavlovas have got my name written ALL over them! Hands down, pavlovas are my all time favorite dessert to eat on Passover.  They almost make up for how much I miss chocolate chip cookies. Speaking of chocolate chip cookies...I spend this week before the holiday stuffing my face with all the chocolate chip cookies that I can get my hands on. Being the cookieholic, that I am, I can barely go the eight days without my cookies. The struggle is real!  I am not 100% ...
  • 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&...
