Meringues

White textured bowl with orange rim filled with white meringues in front of a white background on a marbled surface

Meringues are such a delicious, light, and fluffy treat! They’re so easy to make and only need 4 ingredients! There are just two tricky parts about meringues. One is the weather. I know this sounds weird, but it’s true. If it’s too humid out they will come out chewy. But honestly, even the chewy ones taste good! The other tricky part is adding the sugar. You have to add it very slowly to keep them light and airy. Like a cloud!

Sangria Hamentaschen

Growing up Jewish, we always had Hamentaschen after Purim services. They were always filled with boring flavors, my least favorite of which happened to be the most common – poppyseed. I remember all the adults loved the poppyseed ones, and they are the traditional flavor, but who wants a pie crust filled with poppyseed? Certainly not me! The others were filled with various flavors of fruit jams, but they were just basic, boring jam flavors. Every now and then there was a chocolate-filled option, and in all honesty, that was the only one worth eating. Until now. Because I’ve created a jam filling that will up your hamentaschen game: Sangria Hamentaschen!

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

Funfetti Hamantaschen

Sprinkles for Funfetti Hamantaschen

I remember making hamentaschen with my mom when I was younger, but I haven’t made them in years because I’m usually not a huge fan of the cookie. For those who don’t know, hamentaschen are triangle shaped cookies that represent the villain, Haman, of the Jewish holiday, Purim. They are usually similar to a shortbread cookie and are filled with a fruit or poppyseed filling.  As a dessert, it’s just never been the type of cookie that excites me.  So I decided to jazz it up and make one that does excite me: Funfetti Hamantaschen!
