Stuffed pineapple with exotic fruit salad, decorated with meringue kisses.
 Perfect dish for a special occasion dessert - light, refreshing, very impressive and Parve!
 The combination of the fruit salad flavors, the meringue kisses and the frozen sorbet is just perfect. I love this dish and of course I save it for holidays and special events.

Try my raw, flour-less brownie which is sweet and rich, made up of ground nuts and dates to make the perfect brownie texture, and has a kick of rich dutch cocoa and espresso.


Pear Applesauce Cake with Pomegranate Glaze

This festive pareve Bundt cake tastes divine, and is perfect any time of day: for breakfast, afternoon tea, or dessert. Feel free to omit the pomegranate glaze, but I love how it soaks into the cake, and the pomegranate seeds sit like jewels on top. Date honey and pomegranates are two cornerstones of Israeli cuisine and immediately conjure up images of Machane Yehuda.

Key Lime Bundt Cake

I came up with this recipe when I had a bag of key limes and knew I did not want to make pie. You can surely use regular limes, but there is something nice about these little guys they make a really flavorful cake. I used coconut milk since that flavor goes well with limes and I would even try using coconut oil in place of margarine next time.


Italian Meringue Coffee Dacquoise

Layer meringue with coffee buttercream for a yummy dessert. For an alternative to the coffee flavor, the meringue layers can be served simply filled with fruit. Do not fill them with fruit until almost ready to serve (or 1 to 2 hours in advance). To garnish, powder the top layer with homemade confectioners’ sugar (simply pulse regular sugar in a food processor).

Creme Brulee

Non Dairy Creme Brulee

November 18th 2011By Geila Hocherman

The availability of nut milks with kosher certification has meant that crème brulée, the ultimate dairy dessert, can now be made pareve. The lush texture of this recasting suggests the inclusion of heavy cream, but coconut milk is used instead. I love the subtle coconut flavor of this version, not to mention its crackly burnt-sugar topping, and I think you will, too.

The key to this halvah is cooking the sugar to the right temperature and not overbeating it. It sounds difficult but really it isn’t hard. Half an hour and some cooling time are all that stands between you and delicious homemade halvah.
