Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Levain bakery style cookies from Olives n Thyme Tahini has definitely been an acquired taste for me, and even though I do like it now, I’ve not always succeeded in using it in sweets recipes. One of these successful recipes were incredible S’mores tahini cookie bars (also from Olives n Thyme), so I knew I…

Green Shakshuka

Shakshuka is something that’s now become a brunch staple, but it’s a dish I’ve been familiar with all my life from Israel. In Israel (especially during winter time) green shakshuka is almost just as popular as the traditional red version, and it’s one of my favorites! I’ve tried a few recipes, including Eden Grinshpan’s version…

Almond flour crepes

Gluten free and kosher for passover! I will say I was skeptical trying this recipe, since crepes can be difficult to make without breaking and the last gluten-free crepe recipe I tried turned out awfully. However, these were super easy to make and were delicious! I made both sweet and savory crepes so I added…

Grape and Rosemary Focaccia

Saw King Arthur Baking’s recipe for Rosemary Grape Focaccia, and changed the recipe based on my own experience baking focaccia. It was INCREDIBLE and the best focaccia we have ever eaten! The grapes burst in the oven giving the focaccia a sweet kick, and the combination of roasted grapes and rosemary with the saltiness and…

EASY Homemade Couscous

I recently made homemade couscous from semolina over a stove top, and my friend Dana (who is a seasoned chef) shared that there is an even easier method where you can make homemade couscous from semolina via microwave! She sent this video in Hebrew from youtube with directions, and I’ve translated the instructions below! Homemade…

Delicata Squash

Oven roasted delicata squash, so simple but so good! Slightly crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and so naturally sweet 😍I buy my delicata squash from @traderjoes because they regularly have it in stock and it’s so cheap, only $1 each! I normally cook a few delicata squash at the time because they get eaten…

A scrumptious dessert (or breakfast) that looks fancy, is incredible easy to make and healthy!🍐 Make sure to use semi firm pears (you don’t want them too soft!) Recipe modified from @shuangys_kitchensink Whole Baked Pears with Honey Walnut Caramelized Pears INGREDIENTS: coconut 🥥 oil 2 pears 🍐 cinnamon INSTRUCTIONS: Heat oven to 375 degrees F Wash and…

Chocolate Avocado Pudding Shots

I often find myself either having a ton of ripe avocado at home (and not knowing what to do with it) or not having any avocado, and recently I found myself with a surplus of ripe avocado. I was thinking about something creative I could do with the ripe avocado that was a dessert (I…

Apple Roses

The perfect dessert for Rosh Hashana (or any other time you feel like an apple pastry)! Looks super fancy and isn’t a lot of work, but most importantly, it tastes delicious! My dad thinks it’s much better than many of the pastries he’s had at bakeries, which also means it doesn’t last long in my…

Peaches and cream oatmeal

It’s peach season right now and I’ve been LOVING it. Nothing is better than a juicy peach on it’s own in the summer, but I’m also loving it in dishes from salads to oatmeal, and this is by far the best version i’ve had of peaches in oatmeal! Thank you Gal Shua-Haim (@somethingnutritious on instagram)…
