  • Sugar Free Frozen Hot Chocolate [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    2 weeks ago

    It was a hot summer day (why on hot days do I tend to feel more hungry?) so  I  was in my kitchen looking for something sweet but not too unhealthy.  Looking around my pantry, it hit me--I remembered Serendipity’s frozen hot chocolate and realized I could easily re-create the New...

  • “Doctored Up” Trader Joe’s GF Brownies with Sea Salt

    By Elana Horwich

    2 weeks ago

    Who knew that the best brownies in the world would.….

        1. come from a box (or in this case a bag).

        2. take 5 minutes and zero brain power.

        3. be gluten free.

        4. all be bought with a one stop shop at Trader Joes for under ten bucks!?!

  • One Israeli creation for the weekend

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    May 23, 2014 | 11:13 am

    This week, I would like to present to you Israel’s sweetest invention: Max Brenner!


    The chocolate store chain has now stores in the USA, Australia, the Philippines, Singapore, but it all started with a small store in Ra’anana, Israel (my hometown.) Inn 1996, Max Fichtman and...

    By Elana Horwich

    May 15, 2014 | 12:05 pm

    Eating a sundae doesn’t necessarily need to be bad for you. What if you made a sundae that actually made you stronger? Here’s one with lots of nutrients in it.

  • Spiced Nut and Cheese Hamantashen - Gluten Free Option [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    March 11, 2014 | 9:00 am

    I think I might have created the best Hamantashen ever. Really.

    Basically these hamantashen are like a cheese and prune danish meets a nutty cinnamon rugelach

    Hamantashen cookies are so often not “wowers.” Plain dough filled with jam shaped in a triangle to mimic the...

  • Mulled Spiced Pears [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    December 23, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Making desserts has gotten a bad rap. We are convinced it will be a lengthy process that requires flour getting all over the kitchen and some type of custard that requires needle-point precision. But who cares about that when desserts scream out the “f-word” -fattening- so loud...

  • Five Ways to Break the Rules this Thanksgivukkah

    By Elana Horwich

    November 22, 2013 | 9:00 am

    1. Start with Latkes, Put Your Guests to Work and Dress Like an Idiot!

    The latke is best, by far, right out of the pan, after it has rested for only a moment on paper towels which soak up some oil. When they are part of the main course they are inevitably room temperature, greasy...

  • Strawberry Macedonia with Fresh Mint [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    October 2, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Tired of having guests pass out in a food coma on your couch or get up to leave as soon as the meal is over? Dessert shouldn’t be an annihilation. This dessert is a pick-me-up that keeps the party going. Furthermore, everybody swoons and it only takes minutes to make.

  • Sfratti: An Italian-Jewish Rosh Hashanah Dessert from “Little Jerusalem” in Tuscany [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    August 30, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Welcome to Pitigliano. An enclave of a Tuscan town, it was built up on a hill, like the rest of them, as protection not only from medieval warlords, but also from medieval malaria. Mosquitoes don’t like altitude as much as they like moisture, and hence the peasants who tended to...

  • Gluten-Free Raisin Spice Coconut Milk Kugel [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    August 28, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Kugel That Won’t Kill You

    There’s nothing that Jews like to talk about more than the terrors of disease and who in the community is dying. Death is both our greatest fear and our favorite dinner party topic. Cancer, heart failure, diabetes...if it can’t kill, it’s really not that...

  • The Braniac Muffin [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    August 26, 2013 | 9:00 am

    It doesn’t take a brainiac to know that bran is good for you. Bran muffins, on the other hand, are a different story. The problem with most bran muffins is threefold:

    one: The bran used is often harsh and can make you feel flatulent, to use the correct terminology. When consumed...

  • Taking a modern approach to Passover desserts

    April 5, 2011 | 6:09 pm

    At Passover, because tradition rules, I’m willing to bet that, at most seder tables, undistinguished sponge and honey cake, coconut macaroons and probably some dried fruits cooked into a compote are trotted out at meal’s end, met with no discernable oohs and aahs of rapture from...

  • Restoring Moses

    By Rabbi Karen Deitsch

    October 9, 2008 | 11:53 pm

    It isn't nice to say, but if I were hanging out in the desert with my friends -- all excited about moving in to a land of milk, honey and great falafel -- and an old man with a stutter insisted on "speaking into our ears" a weird doom and gloom poem, my likely remark would be: "That...
  • A dessert wine with a healthy finish

    By Zev Stub

    September 21, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    If you've been to the supermarket lately, you've probably noticed that the hottest trend in the food industry is pomegranate products.
     
    Several years before the trend got started, a family in Israel's Upper Galilee region began working to create a tastier and healthier version...
  • PASSOVER FOOD: Treats to Leaven Desire for Dessert

    By Judy Zeidler

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Passover desserts are a challenge to the cook because so many ingredients are forbidden, among them flour, grain, cornstarch, baking powder or baking soda. So we substitute matzah meal, potato starch and versatile fresh egg whites to bake all of those traditional favorites -- and...

  • Mommy, Me & Cheesecake Makes 3

    By Melissa Maroff

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    OK, mom, so what part of eating that cheesecake is making you feel guilty?

    If you fear that little bubbela is annoying the other customers in the bakery, your worries are over.

    The Essential Chocolate Collection, a Culver City bakery, is for parents who want an alternative to...

  • A Yummy Hat Trick of Triangle Treats

    By Judy Zeidler

    March 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    The traditional shape of the quintessential Purim dessert, the hamantaschen, is a three-cornered filled pastry. Some say it even looks like George Washington's hat, but I'm certain he wasn't around in those early days. But, what about the shape? What does it represent? Is it the...

  • Let My People Merlot

    April 14, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    In the beginning, there was sweet wine. Really, really sweet wine.

    But as the kosher market broadened, a trickle of new wines targeted to a more sophisticated audience began to raise expectations among Jewish wine lovers.

    Now kosher wines have entered a third era, in which many...

  • Fritter Away Your Time for Chanukah

    By Judy Zeidler

    December 2, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    We just returned from a trip to Italy, concentrating on the provinces of Puglia and Campania close to Naples. It is a region that we enjoy because of the diversity of the foods and wines available.

    We visited several new places but returned to one of our favorites, La Caveja, a...

  • Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Meal

    By Judy Zeidler

    September 9, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    The apple, even more than the bibical pomegranate, has become the symbolic first fruit to be eaten during Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which will be observed at sundown, Wednesday, Sept. 15.

    During Rosh Hashanah, tradition calls for a perfect apple to be pared and cut into as...

  • B’nai Mitzvah Planning 101

    By J. G. Friedman

    March 11, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    So you're going to have a mitzvah -- whether it is a bar or a bat, the planning begins early. Way before Hebrew school age, you will hear at least one grandfather wistfully thinking aloud at about age 5, "In eight years, we will have a bar mitzvah."

    From there it continues directly...

  • A Sweet Dream Come True

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    February 19, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    The tip jar at CremaLita in Santa Monica reads, "Make Me Fat," which is the opposite of why patrons frequent this new, kosher fat-free ice cream chain in Los Angeles.

    The trendy, Manhattan-based company dishes out more than 60 flavors -- including peppermint and espresso --...

  • Celebrate with Cheesecake

    By Judy Zeidler

    November 29, 2001 | 6:59 pm

    On the first night of Chanukah, the family always gets together at our home for a special evening. We enjoy lighting the Chanukah candles, eating traditional foods and exchanging gifts.

    Dessert is always a highlight of the evening, and this year for Chanukah, I am going to surprise...
