Since I’m going to be traveling while you’re reading this, I thought I would share a story with you about my last trip. Last month I went home to Louisville. While there my husband and I indulged in all the delicious food we missed now that we live in the northeast. It may surprise you, but Lonely Planet named Kentucky a top U.S. destination for 2018!
Before popsicle shops were popping up (pun intended) everywhere, it was this cool (pun not intended), novel, genius idea. My husband and I were in Nashville and a friend recommended Las Paletas, a popsicle shop. I was kind of confused, and super intrigued. I mean, popsicles are basically frozen juice, right?! So we’re going to pay a few dollars for some frozen juice at a shop when we could get a whole box for the same price as the store?
It’s (once again) been a while since I’ve given you a new recipe, so I’m coming back strong with an easy, no-bake recipe: Unicorn Pie! Kellogg’s makes a vanilla cupcake flavored cereal that they call Unicorn cereal. It is a limited edition flavor, and as far as I knew, it was only available at the Kellogg’s store in New York. Then one day, I’m just minding my own business walking through BJ’s (it’s the New England equivalent of Sam’s Club) and I see a huge box of Unicorn Cereal! It’s probably the equivalent of two family size boxes. I don’t really need that much Unicorn cereal, but it was my only option so I went with it. Continue Reading
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
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
