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...

Baking with Susanna: Espresso cinnamon rolls

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 ...

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.

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...
