S'mores Brownies
I have a family friend who will almost always bring her famous "brownie s'mores" to a party.  And they go like hot cakes.  Seriously delicious.  She very nicely shared her recipe with me and I saw how insanely simple they were to make (ie make boxed brownie...

What's Baking S'mores Round-Up
I had the pleasure of hosting this month's What's Baking, which also

Quinoa with Roasted Garic, Tomatoes, and Spinach
Did you know that quinoa is Kosher for Passover?  Well, it is !  This was a welcome fact as I set about menu planning.  Aside from veggies there aren't many other sides that don't involve some sort of matzah/matzah meal/etc so quinoa is a nice break from th...

Potato Spinach Gnocchi with Tomato Sauce
When coming up with my menu plan for the week of Passover, I knew I could rely on many of our dishes we have throughout the year, but I wanted to be a little more adventurous and make things that needed modification to be eaten during this time.  Jewish Fed...

Passover Apple Cake
I hate to show up to my grandmother's house for a seder empty handed.  I knew I was bringing gefitle fish to my in-laws the next night but that's my grandmother's specialty so I had to come up with another idea.  Dessert is usually my go-to but during Passo...
