Favorite Dessert Spots in Tel Aviv

I have a huge sweet tooth, so when I visit Israel I love trying out different dessert places! Plus, many of the dessert shops in Israel use fresh fruit, something else I love. Here are some of my favorites in Tel Aviv! Tamara– the best frozen yogurt in Tel Aviv (many locations) Normally full of…

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Totally worth sitting through a 3 hour Passover Seder for! Gluten-free desserts never looked (or tasted so good)! My mom made this delicious flourless chocolate cake recipe from Joan Nathan. Even though I thought it looked great, she wanted me to “make it look pretty” because of the crumbly edges.   I decided to add Natasha’s…

Hazelnut Tahini Brownies

Trying to enjoy as much baked goods as possible before passover starts led me to trying this delicious Hazelnut Tahini Brownie recipe from Crowded Kitchen. These brownies were so rich and fudgy, just how I like them! The recipe is also vegan-friendly for those who are dairy and egg free! Here’s how to make them:…

The chocolate hardened almost immediately, and the dip…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies

Stumbled upon #ahealthyharmony ‘s picture for her Double Chocolate Pumpkin Blondies on instagram  and decided to try making this gorgeous dessert. Find her recipe here. I didn’t have a lot of the ingredients she requested at home, and instead of cheating and using less healthy (and cheaper) options I already had at home, I tried to…
