It always amazes me how, with a little creativity, the ordinary can be transformed into extraordinary.
In an article I wrote for Family First Magazine in the Fall of 2015, I featured this recipe as a log cake. It's a popular recipe that I have seen served at many parties since. I recently attended a party, hosted by a close friend of mine. Each course was a masterpiece. When I complimented her she said, "wait till you see what I made for dessert-even you will be impressed."
Impressed I was! She had used aCuisipro Ice Cream Scoop and Stack to cut out individual portions of the ice cream log and placed them on plates garnished with dessert sauce. But the best is yet to come. She had personalized each portion with the initial of the new couple's last name by cutting it out of fruit strips. The results were so outstanding that I couldn't resist sharing them with you. Enjoy!
I was excited to discover these adorable ice cream pops in my local supermarket shortly before Chanukah, last year. I figured why not put a little “spin” on these pops to create a “dreidel” dessert, perfect for your Chanukah Party.
Donuts, donuts, donuts,Well…….if everyone’s noshing on donuts anyways, why not “dress them up” a bit and serve them as the dessert?! With this variety of donuts and filling options you’re sure to satisfy every palate while bringing a classy angle to your Chanukah Party/Family gathering etc.
Every season of the year brings with it the delicious fruits of the season. In the fall it’s the red, juicy apples. In the winter it’s the plump and nutritious oranges. In the spring and summer it’s the berries, melons and my personal favorite – the peach!
Shavuot is a special time for adults and children alike. If you’re like me, when I think of Shavuot I automatically associate this holiday with two things; cheesecake and flowers! Cheesecake aside, flowers are a wonderful way to bring the spirit of the holiday into your home. These candy flower planters are easy and lots of fun to make. They will look stunning as a decorative addition to your Yom Tov sweet table and they will be enjoyed by both adults and children alike.So, after the cupcakes have been eaten and the lollypops licked, the fond memories of the flowers (and the cheesecake) will linger year after year.
Gone are the days where teaching your kids to how to cook consists of pointers on how to boil macaroni and making rice crispy treats. Leah Schapira and Victoria Dwek are changing the way our kids cook with their newest cookbook just for kids! I recently got Kids Cooking Made Easy and I think it’s a masterpiece.
Fun to make and fun to eat, this idea is perfect for that cold, frosty winter day. Design your chocolate on a stick, swirl in boiling hot milk, then watch how it transforms into a luscious, fudgy hot cocoa – Irresistible!
