Mock Zabaglione Recipe

Posted on 25th of October, 2011 by Lévana

ZABAYON

I haven’t had the authentic zablaglione, a luscious Italian whipped egg-yolk-sugar-and-port cream, since one day I got sick from -and ashamed of- having splurged on it. But even at small doses, not everyone can afford it: I trust you will like the results of my tinkering: It tastes very much...

apple sauce

Until just last week, which is just before we hosted our annual Simchat Torah Party, if the idea of serving apple sauce to guests had entered my head, I would have been worried about my culinary creativity coming to a screeching halt. But here’s what happened: I cooked and baked...

Caramel Sauce Recipe

Posted on 18th of October, 2011 by Lévana

Caramel-Sauce1

Another glowing example of a treat known as dairy that doesn’t in the least suffer from a dairy-free adaptation, au contraire! (Go ahead and multiply the recipe if you would like—it keeps very well.) Delicious over ice cream, pound cake, bread puddings, etc… For a richer texture, I use a...

Pumpkin Pecan Pie Recipe: Gluten-Free Friendly!

Posted on 7th of October, 2011 by Lévana

pumpkin-pecan-pie

I usually find the holiday pecan pie almost too sweet for human consumption, but when I add a pumpkin filling, the customary cloying sweetness is pleasantly mitigated. Besides, pumpkin and pecans are a match made in dessert heaven. This pie adapt beautifully to gluten-free needs, as you could make the...

Plum Tart Recipe. Apple Tart Variation

Posted on 24th of August, 2011 by Lévana

plum-tart-large1

I have my mother to thank for providing the inspiration for this beautiful tart. The base is not a classic pie crust as we know it, more like a cookie dough, making this tart much less perishable than the classic apple pie. You will create in no time a dessert...
