As part of my quest to find party recipes which are safe for my daughter's friends who have allergies, I tested this egg-free cookie recipe for a Valentine's Day party earlier this year and was blown away by how delicious they were! Moist, buttery, and just sweet enough. While not healthy by any stretch, they … Continue reading Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies (Egg-free)
As I mentioned in this post about my munchkin's 4th birthday, in order to make the party more enjoyable for the kids there who have food allergies, I used this recipe for egg-free cupcakes, which also happen to be light and moist and delicious. And best of all, both the cupcakes and frosting are incredibly … Continue reading Chocolate or Vanilla Egg-Free Cupcakes with Chocolate Fudge or Vanilla Frosting
I'm in a little bit of shock...my little munchkin turned 4 last week! It's hard to believe that she's such a big kid now - definitely no longer a baby (as she is happy to tell you!). It's customary for kids in her preschool to invite the entire class, so we decided to host the … Continue reading 4th Birthday Celebration!
I have been very fortunate in that so far, neither of my girls have any food allergies (nor do hubby or I!). My young niece, on the other hand, has not been so lucky, and cannot eat nuts or eggs. Because she is often placed in the unfair position of not being able to share … Continue reading Brownies – without the eggs!

White whole wheat flour is pretty amazing stuff - … Continue reading Oatmeal Flax Cookies

I have found that dessert are especially tough, as many people try to modify regular recipes to be kosher for Passover, but the result is never going to be quite the same. My opinion is that … Continue reading Flourless Chocolate Cake
I have been trying to get away from dessert recipes...really, I have! But the little peanut in my belly seems to have quite the sweet tooth, and I have been wanting dessert all of the time lately. In an effort to get my sweet fix from something moderately healthy, I decided to try out a … Continue reading Healthier Oatmeal Cookies
Hi everyone! I started the story of the munchkin's birthday cupcakes in this post, but decided the chocolate cupcakes needed a post of their own! Whereas I was happy with a modified muffin for the vanilla version, I needed to try 2 chocolate recipes to find a winner. The first one was from Weelicious (with whole … Continue reading Mini Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Fudge Frosting
I'd like to start this post by wishing my little munchkin a very happy birthday! I cannot believe it's been 2 years already, and at the same time I can't believe how grown up she is - talking and singing, jumping and climbing, and even knowing enough to get excited about her own birthday party … Continue reading Birthday Cupcakes
