No-Bake Cheesecake

By Shiran

Perfect No-Bake Cheesecake |

This is my favorite recipe for no-bake cheesecake. It’s simple and quick to make and holds its shape well. Writing my last post about my favorite kitchen products brought back memories from my days as a novice baker. Before having a “real” oven, I used a tiny toaster oven for any baked goods, believing that […]

Coconut Cake

Perfect Coconut Tea Cake |

This moist, fluffy, delicate coconut cake makes the perfect side to tea. With a slight crunch and subtle coconut flavor, it pairs amazingly well with flavors such as citrus and rum. Along with chocolate chips and peanut butter cups, I used to keep toasted coconut flakes in a secret spot in the kitchen. Much like […]

Pecan Pie

Gooey, crunchy, and full of flavor classic pecan pie recipe |

This comforting pecan pie is gooey, crunchy, full of flavor, and a true classic.  One of my best friends got married this week, and it got me so excited and romantically cheesy that I could barely recognize myself. She’s one of the last in our group of friends to get married, which makes me really […]

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

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 […]

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 […]

Perfect White Meringues |

A simple recipe for white, crispy meringue cookies that will melt in your mouth. Make them any size or shape you want! While there are many ways to make meringue, there is one important rule to remember in making it the authentic way, and that is the 1:2 ratio of egg whites to sugar. Meringue […]
