Moosewood brownies, 2 ways

It's #NationalBrownDay! Because brownies. Below is the real Moosewood Cookbook brownie recipe. They're gooey and taste incredible--like Dunkin Heinz without all the chemicals. I use whole wheat flour, but no matter because there's hardly any flour in them. They're pretty much sugar and chocolate.  They're heavenly.

Yogurt bar & pancakes on Shavuos

As far as I'm concerned, for all that the upcoming holiday, Shavuos, lacks in detailed laws, it makes up for it in delicious foods. I'll take a buttery, broiled filet of fish over a roast any day.

Surviving So Much Food

With all the joy and family time approaching this month of holidays comes a lot of food. Pretty much any time with Jews brings a lot of food. It takes a lot of discipline to keep from overeating when we're surrounded by food for days at at time. And, it takes a plan. While nothing's … Continue reading Surviving So Much Food
