Peach Gallete

Made using my Braun FP3020 12 Cup Food Processor I went to a peach festival recently at Carlson Orchards and naturally picked and bought more peaches than I could eat. I decided I’d make a peach dessert for the first time, and thought making a gallete was a good opportunity, since I’ve always wanted to try making…

Flourless Brownies

These flourless, kosher for passover brownies are so fudgy and delicious! These don’t contain matza meal or cake flour (like many kosher for passover dessert recipes), which is an added bonus. I used this recipe from the Chicago Tribune and slightly filled in gaps I saw in the recipe. Flourless Kosher for Passover Brownies Ingredients:…

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.

The health benefits of chia seeds are countless, as chia seeds…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This recipe from Rachel Mansfield contains my favorite combination of ingredients: bananas, chocolate and nut butter.

In fact, this is definitely…

Red Berry Oatmeal

Nothing screams Valentine’s Day like chocolate, so I figured, why not add it to my breakfast oatmeal this Valentine’s Day? Chocolate in warm oats is such a treat, especially since the chocolate melts and makes oatmeal taste like warm cookie dough. Plus, when I have chocolate in the morning, it tends to satisfy my chocolate…

Foods of Israel Tour

During my recent trip to Israel, I did a four day extension Birthright extension program called Foods of Israel. Through this program I got to explore the melting pot of Israeli cuisine alongside peers from North and Latin America. The trip was a whirlwind of smells, sights and adventure, and I wanted to share my…
