Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake |

Moist cake topped with pineapples and a thick caramel sauce. It’s made upside-down, then flipped over after baking. A few months ago, while I was wandering around on Pinterest (like I do about every 2 hours), I stumbled upon a photo of my banana upside down cake on the front page. I kept scrolling down […]

Chocolate Banana Cake

By Shiran

Ultimate Chocolate Banana Cake |

Moist and rich, this cake is the chocolate version of my favorite recipe for banana bread. This cake is the result of two people, each asking me to make their favorite dessert – one banana bread, the other a chocolate cake – but only having enough time to make one. Combining these two flavors into […]

Simple Classic Cheesecake

Simple and classic cheesecake |

Rich, creamy, and satiny, this is my go-to recipe for a simple and classic cheesecake. I’m back from Spain – well, at least physically. Mentally, I’m still walking through the narrow picturesque passageways of Seville, sharing a huge paella with hubby, and doing some shopping. And by some, I mean a lot. See why it’s […]

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies |

Classic old-fashioned peanut butter cookies that are chewy on the inside, crispy on the edges, and full of peanut flavor.  I’m feeling energetic today as I count down the days for my trip to Spain. I was about to make pecan pie this morning, but decided to go for something quicker and just as comforting […]

Easy homemade whipped cream, plus tips such as how to store it, how long it keeps, what flavorings can be added, and more. How many times have you overwhipped your cream to the point that it turns into butter? If your answer is zero, then you’re either lying or a baking genius. I hope you […]

Lemon Cupcakes

Lemon Cupcakes |

These are my favorite lemon cupcakes. They are moist, have the perfect balance between sweetness and tanginess, and are bursting with lemon flavor.  Yep, you’ve guessed right. I officially have a thing for lemon, and it is beyond my control. My palette has changed rather drastically in the last couple of years, and while I […]

Hamantaschen |

Traditionally served on the Jewish holiday Purim, these Hamantaschen cookies are made of a delicate cookie dough and are filled with anything from poppy seed, nut, or date filling to chocolate spread or jam. In the last few years, I’ve come to a conclusion on why I love the holidays so much. It’s not just […]

Strawberry Shortcake

By Shiran

Perfect Strawberry Shortcake |

This is my favorite recipe for classic strawberry shortcake – a dessert made of sweet, juicy strawberries and whipped cream layered in a perfectly rich biscuit. I’ve just booked tickets to Spain, and I’m beyond excited! So excited, in fact, that any attempt I’ve made in the last 10 minutes to type words such as […]

Panna Cotta

Perfect Panna Cotta |

This rich and silky Italian dessert is a perfectly light treat that takes only minutes to make! Here’s a fact you may not know about me. When I quit my job in the cooperate world, I went on a journey to find myself (whatever that means) and started selling mini baked goods for events. It […]
