Delicious Lemon Loaf

Share

I love a good lemon bread. It’s great for breakfast, dessert or an afternoon snack. This one is quite moist and bursting with flavor. Starbucks sells something just like it, and although I’ve never tried theirs, I bet this one is better. I have made this recipe several times now and it has always been […]

Chocolate Olive Oil Cake

Share

I served this cake on Christmas Eve as one of our desserts because one of our guests was vegan. If you make this recipe using dairy-free or vegan chocolate chips, it’s a vegan delight because it contains no dairy, butter or eggs! The cake is incredibly moist and chocolaty and it was a big hit […]

Gingerbread Biscotti

Share

If you’re a biscotti fan, these are perfect to make for the holidays. Your home is guaranteed to smell wonderful while they’re baking. It’s a perfect winter cookie to make on a freezing cold day like today in NYC. Biscotti are an Italian cookie that is typically dipped into a hot beverage before eating. I […]

Loiusa's Cake

Share

I made this cake the other day on a lark. It was described as a cake that could be served for breakfast so I made it for the boys. As is typical with many new things I make, the boys were skeptical that it was loaded with vegetables. I assured them that it wasn’t, but […]

Sprinkle Cookies

Share

We are in the throes of finals week in our apartment and it has been stressful. Our 9th graders have never had finals before and the thought of needing to know everything that has been taught since September is frightening for them, especially in subjects like biology and history where the minutia can be overwhelming.

Lemon White Chocolate Bars

Share

My lemon-loving son saw a picture of these bars on my computer – I think I had a Pinterest page open – and he begged me to make them. He is a lemon fanatic as long as there is no pulp anywhere to be found in the recipe. When he saw that this was made […]

Chocolate Ganache Cake

Share

I made this cake for a dinner party we were supposed to have on Saturday night. I made the cake itself on Friday, wrapped it tightly in plastic wrap and stored it in the refrigerator. Unfortunately the dinner party didn’t happen because one of my dear friends, and one of our guests that night, had […]

Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles

Share

One of my sons made these the other day. He’s a huge cookie dough fan. We actually went downtown a couple of weekends ago to a shop called DÕ. All they sell is cookie dough. It’s served like ice cream and it’s such a phenomenon in NYC that it’s almost impossible to get in. We […]

Cheesecake Swirled Brownies

Share

How many of my boys eat these? 2/4, only 50%. Two of them claim they don’t like cheese, so they won’t go near them. I tried to explain that these don’t taste like the cheese that they claim they don’t like, but they weren’t buying it. I say, more for the rest of us!

These brownies […]

Cake Batter Truffles

Share

My sons LOVE these truffles, and one of them now loves to make them. They are quite good, and they taste very much like a truffle I recently had for dessert at a restaurant called Momofuku Má Pêche.

I know that some people are concerned about eating raw flour because of its potential to contain E […]
