Halva Maple Mousse with Pistachios. Gluten-Free

Posted on 4th of March, 2013 by Lévana

Halva Maple Mousse

Like many of us halva lovers, I dread the amount of sugar contained in commercial halva. But the good news is, it is so intensely flavored that I always tinker with ways to make the included sugar go a much longer way while getting the full measure of the Tehina...

Kosherfest 2012 Standout New Products

Posted on 25th of November, 2012 by Lévana

Kosherfest 2012 Standout New Products

Kosherfest in Secaucus was great fun this year. I and quite a few others marveled at how the staff at Kosherfest pulled off the whole show with their hands often tied behind their backs, so soon after Hurricane Sandy, which crippled many warehouses and made transportation a nightmare. Although I...

Posted on 7th of August, 2012 by Lévana

Walnut Blondies

A couple weeks ago, I was baking chocolate chip cookies with kids in summer camp, and our baking conditions were rudimentary, to say the least. We needed to bake 48 cookies in a convection oven large enough to bake, say, 2 pans of 12 cookies. So, simple math, half the...

Posted on 10th of July, 2012 by Lévana

Apricot Custard Tart

If you are, as I am, crazy about all stone fruit, this tart is for you: I initially developed this recipe with apricots in mind, but not finding them as ripe and fragrant as I wanted them to be, I picked their cousins, nectarines, which happened to look luscious. Peaches...
