cookie jar: no-bake cranberry oat cereal bars

no bake cranberry oat cereal bars

July 24th, 2014

It’s here. Yes, this summer – which started out dry, mild, comfortable – is now in the hot and humid dregs. And while I’m definitely avoiding the oven these days, I still enjoy having a stash of cookies at the ready.  And for me that means the always-reliable, no-bake variety – like these: I love […]


pop! goes my summer: root beer float popsicles

root beer float pops

July 23rd, 2014

It’s getting fun now. When I came up with the idea for this series I made a list of all of my favorite flavor combinations, drinks and snacks – hoping to make each one in “pop” form. And who doesn’t love a root beer float? This one is barely even a recipe – you know […]


pop! goes my summer: corn popsicles

July 9th, 2014

Corn? Pretty much one of my very favorite foods. Yeah, I know that as veggies go, corn does not rank high on the nutritional scale (simple sugars, blah blah). But I can eat an insane amount of corn – and I love it in almost every way you can think to prepare it: Corn salad. […]

July 2nd, 2014

My popsicle mold has been getting quite the workout lately. I bought this one last year and I absolutely love it. So much so that I’ve been inspired to do a weekly “popsicle series” – all summer! Every Wednesday till Labor Day I’ll be sharing a new recipe – and I’m kind of super-excited about it! […]


cookie jar: lemon poppy seed crisps

lemon poppy seed crisps

June 24th, 2014

I think I’m going to call this the perfect summer cookie. Literally bursting with fresh lemon (juice and zest), these cookies have an amazing crunchy coating, thanks to a generous roll in lemon-sugar and plenty of poppy seeds. The flavors are reminiscent of my lemon poppy pound cake – but in cookie form! These would […]

June 2nd, 2014

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend! I wanted to share some sites that you can find me on this week – or more importantly, where you can find some great new recipes! On Babble I’m sharing my latest vegan “hack” – this month it’s a copycat Nutella that both “the vegan” and my […]

Happy Memorial Day! So it’s no secret that I LOVE cookies – like, I want to marry them. So I’ve decided to do a sort of “cookie of the month” series, bringing you a great, EASY recipe each month, that you are sure to love. Sound good? I had to post this one right away, […]


i’m such a (strawberry) fool for you

i'm such a (strawberry) fool for you

April 18th, 2014

At least once a week I get an e-mail from a PR company, “offering” to send me a sample or coupon for some foodie product to review on my blog. And 99% of the time I politely respond “no thank you”: To yogurt. To non-dairy coffee creamers. To “mint” anything. I mean, why would I […]


favor-”ette”: just one more

favor-"ette": just one more

April 15th, 2014

When it comes to the holiday dessert table, I’m definitely team “I think we need one more”. Especially during Passover. As we can’t eat flour throughout the week, I’m always on the hunt for sweets and snacks to serve and nibble on after the seders are over. But nothing too taxing or complicated. Say hello […]


“mini cooks” dessert – cupcake cones!

"mini cooks" dessert - cupcake cones!

April 2nd, 2014

I was so excited to be tasked with dessert, to conclude this series with MJ and Joy. And not only because I love to bake, but because I’ve been waiting for just the right time to share this beloved treat with you all. I’ve been making cupcake cones – no joke – for over 20 […]
