Like An Arancino

When I think of my grandmother, I think of arancini. It is an odd association, since she never once stuffed and fried a ball of leftover risotto. It hardly matters, since I don't think about her making them. Instead, I think about her being one of them....more

Israeli Stuffed Dates

I love the idea of stuffed dates- both savory and sweet. There are a million variations out there as dates are a great vessel for stuffing. I decided on nuts, chocolate and coconut and  I think they will be great on my holiday dessert table.   ...more

Coffee Infused Chocolate Truffles

September 29th is National Coffee Day. Who knew? Not me, until the great folks at So Delicious let me know. And, they were gracious enough to give me some of their non dairy coffee creamer!  I am not one who normally puts cream in her coffee (why mess with perfection?).
