Chocolate Cherry Cake (dairy-free)

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 […]

Apple Pancakes

Apple cinnamon pancakes topped with buttery, tender apple pieces |

Full of flavor, these pancakes are filled with cinnamon and topped with buttery, tender apple pieces to make the perfect autumn breakfast. Seems like autumn decided to pass this year and let us skip straight to winter. Yesterday was sunny and brutally hot, but today—out of nowhere—it’s all gray, stormy, and rainy. I’m not complaining […]

Peaches and Cream Crumble Bars

Peaches and Cream Crumble Bars |

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 […]

Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins

Moist and fluffy raspberry and white chocolate muffins - a heavenly combination! |

Moist and fluffy muffins loaded with raspberries and white chocolate—a heavenly combination. These muffins have been a favorite of mine ever since I was a kid. Having fresh raspberries around is a rare occasion here, so in the short time they do pop up in stores, I rush to buy them and make these muffins […]

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 […]

Berry Sauce

By Shiran

Perfect Berry Sauce |

A fantastically versatile recipe for a thick berry sauce that goes perfect with cheesecake, waffles, ice cream, and more. Since fresh berries are hard to find around here, I usually rely on frozen berries to serve with cheesecakes. Since thawed berries don’t really look attractive, though, I like to use them to make a sauce. […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Moist and fluffy lemon poppy seed muffins a deliciously delicate crunch |

Poppy seeds help give these moist, fluffy lemon muffins a deliciously delicate crunch. I promised myself I wouldn’t be making any lemon recipes this month, especially not these lemon muffins, which my family asks for about every other week. While I was taught to never make promises I can’t keep, I’ve heard it’s considered legitimate […]

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

By Shiran

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 […]
