Last year after our Passover Seder I took the leftover charoset and turned it into a rolled cake that I served my family a few days later on Easter. It was so good I was thinking about it all year and eagerly awaiting the leftovers so I could once again make this cake. Until I […]

It’s funny sometimes the way recipes progress. There are very few, if any, recipes that we home cooks can really call our own. Even if I’ve made something up on the spur of the moment based on the leftovers in my fridge it’s still a pretty safe bet that someone else has made the exact […]

These muffins are the bomb. Seriously. If you like apple, like pumpkin, and like having something baked for breakfast these muffins are a dieter’s best friend.

A couple of weeks ago Deb, from Smitten Kitchen, (one of my food blogging heroes) posted a recipe for apple latkes. I was pretty excited because I have a long standing, very fond memory of my grandfather, Jim, making what he called apple fritters.
