Raspberry Rosé Cake

Raspberry Rosé cake with raspberry rosé jam and rosé frosting featuring Rosé Angry Orchard Cider

Just because I’m out of town this week doesn’t mean I’m going to leave you hanging on a recipe!  But I am going to keep this post short and sweet.  Summer will be here before we know it and I can’t think of a better flavor combination than raspberry and rosé! Rosé seems to be trendier this summer than it has before, and rightly so.  Rosé is the perfect summer drink. Light, cool, refreshing, and most importantly, delicious!  And adding raspberries is really just a good idea. Continue Reading


Coffee Milk Cookie Sandwiches

Coffee Milk Cookie Sandwiches

After much anticipation, I finally watched Chef’s Table Pastry on Netflix.  I waited and waited and waited for the April release date to finally arrive, and then when it finally did my husband went on a bunch of trips and told me I had to wait for him to watch!  So here we are.  We finally watched! (Don’t worry, no spoilers here!) The first episode features Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar. As I learned more and more about her history and her work and her preferences, I felt like she and I were the same person! Except for, you know, the creativity and talent and success part… I really admire her so much and she is such a strong inspiration to me. Continue Reading

Final Four 2018 – San Antonio, TX

This year’s Final Four was in San Antonio, TX. Last year’s Final Four trip to Phoenix was my first time there, and now this trip was my first to San Antonio.  I did tons of research on where to eat before I left, and I am happy to say that I got to a good number of places I wanted to try.  Of course, like all trips, I missed some things and I want to go back and eat some more! Vacations are never long enough!

Greetings from San Antonio Texas

Flourless Chocolate Red Wine Cake {Kosher for Passover}

Flourless Chocolate Red Wine Cake

During Passover, I always find myself eating more dessert than usual.  While often the food is less exciting (except at Seders, of course, because my mom is an amazing cook), the desserts are always good.  Honestly, I fell in love with those Manischewitz boxed cakes when I was in college.  I liked them so much, I would eat them even after Passover had ended.  And they were small enough that I would always eat them in 1-2 sittings! But my absolute favorite Passover dessert has always been my mom’s chocolate chip meringue cookies.  I always eat so many of them.  I just can’t bring myself to stop.  They are so good. But now I have for you a cake that will give those cookies a run for their money. A Kosher for Passover Flourless Chocolate Red Wine Cake. Continue Reading
