Chocolate-Covered Matzoh

Now that the Passover seders are over, we turn our thoughts to other poignant questions about life, freedom, peace and…what to do the rest of our matzoh (and which way are we really supposed to spell it: with or without the “h”.)

BK Supperclub Challenge: No-Bake Cream Cheese Peanut Butter Pie with Chocolate Whipped Cream

Whenever the Bitchin’ Kitchen Supperclub Challenge is a dessert, I cringe. I am not good at making desserts. But I am also not one to shy away from a challenge and this dessert of Nadia G’s was a big one. Since I don’t normally make desserts, I didn’t even have the appropriate equipment. I had […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Sweet and Savory Hamentashen Edition

It’s Purim and even though I am baking-challenged, I decided to try and make Hamentashen. And not just any Hamentashen: Vegan and gluten-free Hamentashen. Purim has always been my favorite Jewish holiday. It’s one of the few happy holidays and as I recall, the only one where you get to sit in the synagogue and […]

Extreme Vegan Makeover: Spicy Chile Cheeze Corn Muffin Edition

I love watching cooking shows and reading food magazines but when I began my weight loss plan, I had to learn how to make lower-calorie, healthier versions of the recipes. They needed to be “Weight Watcherized,” if you will. That meant using low-fat or fat-free versions of ingredients, cutting the amounts of oil in half […]
