Moroccan Almond Shortbread Crescents Recipe

Posted on 10th of April, 2012 by Lévana

Almond Shortbread

A great Sephardi favorite, called ghriba. Traditionally we make them round and top them with a little cinnamon, but I find that no matter how carefully I store them, the tops always start crumbling and looking ragged, so I shape them in crescents, and they behave themselves and keep their...

A nice and super healthy take on pumpkin pie, and so easy to make.  Easily converted to a gluten-free treat: You could use any flour at all. The pairing of figs with rosemary is deliciously funky. Remember, as always: No cooking wine or cooking sherry or any of those calamitous...

levana-cooks-chocolate-peanut-butter-bars

I created these delicious (and gluten-free to boot) treats to celebrate the discovery that my granddaughter Musia was no longer allergic to peanut butter, and since she has a sort of chocolate obsession, this was the ultimate gift. To get an even shorter cut into her heart, I threw in...

Lamb Meatballs in Apple Chutney Sauce Recipe

This new star was born just this past Shabbos, when I was tinkering with a batch of  Apple Tomato Chutney that tasted too delicious to be used only as a condiment; I went all out and incorporated in this Indian lamb meatball dish, and the finished dish was heavenly, and...
