  • 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‚...
  • Berry Pavlova

    Why does my birthday have to fall out on Passover?!? Don't get me wrong. I love having a birthday in April. There is almost always good weather on my birthday. But the big downside of it is that every few years my birthday falls out on Passover. I love Passover. It might possibly be my favorite holiday. But that means that I can't have a cake or go out for dinner for my birthday. I happen to not be the biggest fan of cake. But it still is annoying. But as everything in life, I ...
  • 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 ...
  • Peanut Butter Football Cookies

    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, ...
  • Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies

    I love meringues! There is just something about them that makes my sweet tooth go crazy. I have many memories of  my mom making meringues for Shabbos. She used the method of heating the oven to 400 then leaving the meringues in the oven over night with the oven off. It made them like little light airy clouds. I use a different cooking method. But both work fine.  
  • Deep Fried Chocolate Empanadas

    It's finally Chanukah! That means its time for fried food all week long! I especial love all the fried desserts. Last year I made Churros on Table for Two with Naomi Nachman on the Nachum Segal Network, which originate from Mexico. They were super yummy! This year I decided to do a fried dessert that originates from Portugal, Spain.  In this recipe I use California Gourmet Chocolate Chips. They are my favorite brand of quality chocolate chips. They are 45%-cocoa, ...
