This dessert is a sophisticated turn on a standard apple crisp.
Nothing shouts childhood louder than a S’more.
I decided to play around with a couple of my muffin/kugel recipes and came up with this delicious side dish. Your kids can help with this recipe: the big kids and measure and mix and the little ones can line the muffin tins with cupcake liners. Wrapped tightly, these muffins freeze well.
There are certain desserts that automatically elicit that gasp from the crowd. Pomegranate Chocolate Mousse Tart is a holiday-friendly, gorgeous showstopper. Sprinkling pomegranate seeds across the top of the tart, makes it perfect for Rosh HaShana.
When it comes to bananas, I never know how many is enough/too many to buy. Sometimes they’re gobbled up in a couple of days, and others times… well you know what happens to a neglected banana. Once they turn brown, my kids won’t touch them (and frankly, neither will I). Instead of tossing them out, I bag these over-ripened bananas in 3s and freeze them for this recipe. The riper (read: mushier) the banana, the better (read: more moist) this cake will be.
Looking to share a little love in your kid’s lunch box? These rice crispy squares are a nice surprise snack. Easy enough to make with your kids one afternoon, this unique twist on a standard favorite guarantees you a happy kid.
My husband prides himself on being an apple pie aficionado. Over the course of the years of our marriage, I’ve tried EVERY apple pie recipe with the crust being the toughest challenge to master. Homemade crust or store bought? Use butter or margarine? Refrigerate or prepare at room temperature? I tried just about every recipe I could put my hands on – to no avail. Enter Judy into our lives. Judy makes the perfect apple pie week after week – with a crust so easy, you’ll wonder why people try to make it any other way. Judy has given me permission to share her recipe with all of you. Thanks Judy!
While I myself am the queen of kitchen gadgets, I’m not one to send anyone else to run out and buy the latest knick-knack. BUT if you’re going to splurge on something to make this Chanukah a little more special, I highly recommend picking up a donut maker (akin to the sandwich maker – only it makes donuts). The one I have makes 7 mini donuts at a time – and they are baked, not fried. From start to end (including clean up time) it took me about 12 minutes to turn out 21 mini donuts. Don’t ask how long it took for these delightful minis to get eaten!
These donuts are so basic and delicious. When I made these with my kids, before the next batch was done, the first batch was gobbled up. And that was before these donuts were sprinkled with powdered sugar! Note, the first time I played with my donut maker, I made these and the color was very uneven. The trick when making this particular recipe is to unplug the donut maker as you’re refilling the donut spaces. If you do that, then you, and the donuts, are golden!
