Strawberry and Mixed Green Salad

By Shiran

Strawberry and Mixed Green Salad

A refreshing green summer salad, perfectly complemented by balsamic vinaigrette and the addition of fresh strawberries, nuts, and cheese. I recently got back from Amsterdam, and although I only spent one weekend there, my favorite jeans still refuse to button today, which is when I know it’s definitely time for a salad. I usually prefer […]

Tahini Cookies

By Shiran

Tahini Cookies

These crackly melt-in-your-mouth cookies are made with only a handful of ingredients. They’re quick to prepare, and get their wonderfully unique flavor from the addition of tahini. With the weather around here being constantly warm, every bit of rain gives me a serious cold, just like the one I have this morning—which, by the way, […]

Oven Baked French Fries

By Shiran

french fries 230

Perfectly soft on the inside and crispy on the outside, these French fries are baked—not fried—making them healthier, lighter, and easier to prepare. When I was a kid I used to beg my mom for hamburgers, secretly because I wanted the French fries that always came with them more than anything and knew she wouldn’t […]

Strawberry Banana Popsicles

By Shiran

Creamy strawberry banana popsicles

These creamy and naturally sweet strawberry banana popsicles make the perfect healthy treat for a summer day. Ok, so it’s not summer just yet. And actually, instead of the bright, warm weather I’m waiting for, there’s an unusual amount of thunderstorms freaking me out at this very moment. Thunderstorms are so rare around here that […]

Milk Chocolate Cupcakes

Dreamy creamy milk chocolate cupcakes

Moist and chocolatey cupcakes topped with a perfectly smooth milk chocolate frosting that tastes incredible. My blogger friend Carrian from oh, sweet basil asked me to write a guest post for her after she recently had her sweet baby that kept her quite busy, so I knew without a doubt I was going to say yes! […]

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

By Shiran

Moist and fluffy peanut butter banana bread

A moist and fluffy bread that gets its delicious flavor from a combination of ripe bananas and creamy peanut butter. It’s no secret that bananas and peanut butter are great buddies, so there was no doubt in my mind that the day would come when peanut butter slipped its way into my favorite banana bread. […]

Hamburger Buns (with dairy-free option)

By Shiran

My favorite hamburger buns - airy, soft, thick, fluffy, and simply perfect. Plus, they can be made dairy-free.

These are my favorite hamburger buns. They’re airy, soft, thick, fluffy, and simply perfect. Plus, they can be made dairy-free. Erez and I used to have this tradition of having fancy hamburger dinners once every few months. After a few successful meals with mostly store-bought ingredients, I decided to upgrade this tradition by making our […]

Lemon Cilantro Pasta

By Shiran

Lemon Cilantro Pasta

A refreshing pasta dish flavored with garlic, olive oil, fresh cilantro, lemon, and Parmesan. Many of my creations in the kitchen are an outcome of throwing all my about-to-expire ingredients into one saucepan and seeing what happens. Sometimes it tastes awful, such as when I thought I was on to something when combining pasta with […]

Dulce de Leche Muffins

By Shiran

Dulce de Leche Muffins

Fluffy and moist muffins fully flavored with dulce de leche and topped with crunchy pecans.  If there’s one thing I really appreciate in baking, it’s an easy recipe. I mean, I do like all those gorgeous tiered cakes that take 4 days to make, but I like eating them a lot more than making them. […]
