Apple Cake with Honey Ice Cream

Have you had your fill of honey cakes yet?! Every Rosh Hashanah I make my mums (Yossi’s mum) apple cake! It’s simple and so moist and delicious. I made it in mini springform pans for aesthetics but feel free to make it in a regular ole pan.  The honey whiskey ice cream is a fun […]

Here’s proof that you can make beautiful things with minimal work! Yes, Yom Tov should be your best efforts, but don’t forget to make sure you don’t take […]

Blueberry Scones

I didn’t know much about scones until I married my husband. I thought Brits ate crumpets a lot and drank tea. But scones? Nah.

Coffee Halva Mousse Pie

So usually I spend quite a while on my blog posts…you’ll have to excuse me today. It’s Thursday night and I promised I would get this recipe up by shabbos. My house looks like a tornado hit it. I just moved over a bowl of pasta and two cucumber slices to sit down on the […]

Lotus Babka

  I had no idea why everybody was stuffing their suitcases with this lotus stuff from Israel. How good could it really be? Is it truly the pareve equivalent of the decadent Nutella? Then people got smart over here. They starting importing it. I finally got my taste- or shall we say 1/4 c full? […]

Peach Blueberry Bourbon Pie

Juicy peaches. Barefoot. Blueberry stains on your hands & face. Oh summer! How I wish you would never go! I love the abundant summer fruit. So much that often I forget we’re only three people and we really don’t need that much produce! So I pie’ify it! I added bourbon because always add bourbon when you […]
