Simanim Salad for Rosh Hashanah

I was thinking about what to serve for the first day meal, when this simanim salad for Rosh Hashanah came to mind. We will without a doubt have leftover simanim that we worked so hard to prepare, label, and neatly stack in the fridge. So I thought we should give them one last hurrah with […]

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Challah

Are you a cinnamon raisin lover like me? I love the toasted bagel version with a shmear of cream cheese. That was my inspiration behind creating a whole wheat cinnamon raisin challah recipe! Why whole wheat? The reason I chose to use whole wheat, is because I like the nuttiness that it brings to the […]

The Best Monster Cookies

I’ve learned that the kids need entertainment AFTER camp. “What are we doing today?!” My daughter always asks at pick-up time. Uhm, wait why do you still have so much energy?! Yesterday we went to Target, that was fun, but more like a once a month or once a year kinda thing with kids. So […]

Double Chocolate Loaf Cake

Hey there. Hope your all doing well. I’ve been spending a lot of time playing around in the kitchen (who am I kidding, I always do that..) Now I have my 5 year old daughter along for the ride. We’ve been making a whole bunch of “kids friendly” snacks and foods. (Check out my highlight […]
