Orange Almond Cake

By Shiran

Orange Almond Cake

Airy and fluffy orange cake with a delicate almond flavor that stays moist for days! I was probably too excited about Passover when I bought 6 pounds of almond flour to make some of my favorite almond-based cakes, because I’m now left with more than half of it. But at least you’re getting something good […]

Chocolate Pecan Espresso Cake

Chocolate Pecan Espresso cake

Moist and tender espresso cake with delicious bits of pecans and dark chocolate. Coffee is something you either hate or can’t live without, and I’m most certainly a top member of the latter group.

By Shiran

This quick-to-make moist, fudgy, chocolatey cake is loaded with cherries and chocolate chips. Chocolate and cherry is an interesting combination; some hate it, and some love it. As you probably guessed, I’m a member of the latter group. I love the twist of cherries in this cake, and the addition of chocolate chips makes it […]

With a creamy pie-like filling wrapped in a sweet, crumbly crust, these peach bars are juicy, crunchy, and comforting. It’s been a month since my 30th birthday, and the celebrations are finally winding down. At least I hope so, and everyone else around me probably does, too. I’m not sure if it’s just that I […]
