Homemade Almond Joys

Have you ever tried making a homemade version of a candy bar? This was a first time for me! I picked Almond Joys which is made of a sweetened coconut mixture and whole almonds, covered in melted chocolate. They are very similar to Mounds, but those do not have almonds. I chose almond joy because…

Cheesecake Parfaits

Some of the best desserts don’t require any cooking. This is one of them. These are adorable little cheesecake parfaits. It is layers of graham crumbs, a creamy yogurt filling and fresh strawberries. It is a lighter, but equally delicious, version of a classic cheesecake. And since these are no-bake, it is much quicker to…

Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

So a few weeks ago I made PB & J cookies which were delicious – nothing better than peanut butter, banana and jam together. This recipe today is actually from the same person (@nataliesnaturalfood on Instagram). These are blueberry oatmeal bars (link here). There are only a few ingredients in these bars, the main one…

Sweet Potato Muffins

It’s Friday! We’ve made it to the weekend. It’s time to relax and take it easy. Why not do a little baking. How about some muffins? I made these sweet potato muffins, recipe from Feel Good Foodie (link here). I’ve made all kinds of muffins before with a variety of fresh ingredients like apples, bananas…

PB & J Cookies

Last week I made that delicious peanut butter dip (click here to see that) and here I am again with another nutty recipe. I love peanut butter so much, I could eat it every day without getting sick of it. Today I have made these adorable jam cookies! I saw this recipe on instagram (link…

Peanut Butter Dip

Last week, I was seeing all these good recipes online but I couldn’t make them since it was Passover. Now that I am back to regular cooking and eating, nothing was going to get in my way. I saw this yogurt dip on TikTok, not sure who created the actual recipe though. It looked so…

Jam Rolls

This was more of an unplanned post but I had to share it here. So in my last post, I made challah (link here). It was great and delicious and everything I hoped for. But I had quite a bit of dough to use up and I wanted to make something sweet. At first I…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Hearts

I love peanut butter cups. Homemade ones of course. They’re so much better than the packaged ones you get, usually at Halloween time. Making them yourself is also way healthier because there are no preservatives or weird chemicals. I posted a peanut butter cup recipe almost 4 years ago (wow can’t believe I’ve been blogging…

Chocolate Crepe Cake

This was a good one. I made a crepe cake. Yes, cake made of crepes (and whipped cream). It’s a beautiful thing. I made this for my dad’s birthday over the holidays and he absolutely loved it. This was my first time making crepes (and crepe cake) and I was super excited. I used the…

Chanukah Sufganiot (Doughnuts)

Happy Chanukah! I did a thing. I made sufganiot (soof-gan-ee-ot) which are filled doughnuts. I wasn’t planning on having this post because my family usually just buys some from a bakery, but 2020 has already been so wild, why not just make our own doughnuts this year! This was actually my first time ever! Found…
