Baking with Susanna: Passover desserts

Those of us celebrating Passover can’t eat anything with flour for eight days, which makes finding dessert to eat a challenge! Now, some people might use the holiday to take a break from sweets, but I like dessert, so . . . not me. Meringues are one of the classic Passover desserts, so I knew I wanted to make t...

I’m impatient when it comes to breakfast. I eat cereal almost every morning, and I hardly ever make pancakes because I don’t feel like waiting half an hour after I wake up before I can eat. I’ll be honest, these cinnamon rolls still take about an hour and a half, but most cinnamon roll recipes ...

When I was younger, I went to summer camp. Every year, we went on a field trip to Six Flags, and I would buy fudge at one of those overpriced candy shops. So when I think of fudge, I think of summer days, good times and a group of girls huddling over a bag of candy with chocolate on their lips. Althou...

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, hands down. It’s the only time of year when my entire dad’s side of the family gathers in one place, and I love the food! My family always has both an apple pie and a pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, and we all eat a slice of each. These are my recipes for both. ...

I eat a lot of granola. Like, a ridiculous amount. Some will say that granola is meant to go with yogurt, or even milk, but I am here to tell you otherwise. Granola is for eating by the handful, sans yogurt. The first thing I do almost every day when I get home from school is to go into the kitchen, open...

As much as we would all love to pretend it isn’t so, finals are fast approaching. For me, cookies are a must-have during long periods of studying. These cookies are awesome because you can throw in a little of whatever you have on hand or whatever you’re in the mood for. If you’re allergic to nu...

It’s Passover! That means many of us Jews don’t eat anything with flour for eight days. But it doesn’t mean no dessert; we just eat flourless desserts instead! Flourless chocolate cake is hands down one of my favorite desserts, regardless of whether it’s Passover or not. It’s just like normal...

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to those who celebrate! I don’t often make fancy desserts. I eat my desserts because they taste good, and I’m usually too lazy for presentation or for dessert that requires utensils (except cake). But I have to say, this parfait is worth the time it takes to make it lo...
