Chocolate Honey Cake
September 14, 2011 | 14 Comments

(Note: This is a previous post coming to the forefront for the holidays.)So, let's get one thing straight - I don't have a Jewish mother or grandmother. As a convert, I lack the fond memory of hating honey cake. Very soon after opening the bakery, I realize that I'm required to not only ... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Apple Crown Cake (yes, the one!)
January 30, 2011 | 10 Comments

(For those who missed this, I'm bringing it back to the home page for Rosh Hashana ~ also, this photo was just sent by Marc Jacobson who has to make more for Rosh Hashana as they ate this one!)This Apple Crown Cake recipe has been used to make thousands of cakes, especially at Rosh Hashana. I wi... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Deluxe Honey Cake
September 14, 2011 | 2 Comments

I haven't a clue where this recipe originates. I've been making it for nearly 20 years and in huge quantities since I started catering and baking. I love making this honey cake because when I say deluxe, I mean deluxe. Even back in the bakery days, I would squeeze my own oranges, brew some S... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Northwest Pear Cake
October 9, 2011 | 0 Comments

In a cookbook around here somewhere is a recipe for an Italian Pear Cake. I adapted it to create the Northwest Pear Cake by substituting dried cranberries for currants and almonds for pine nuts. The result is something far more understandable for us polar fleeced sukkah dwellers. It is a l... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Mixed Fruit Challah
September 2, 2012 | 0 Comments

(Note: This was originally posted last year; and nothing has changed ~ it's still my all time favorite challah!) This is my favorite Rosh Hashana challah; the mixed fruit challah. Back in the days of the bakery, we offer it as fourth place runner up to plain, raisin, whole wheat challah. Th... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Raisin Crown Challah
September 2, 2012 | 0 Comments

(Note: This was originally posted last year. I'm a big believer in baking ahead of the holidays and freezing. No time like the present!)Luckily, luckily we eat crown challah through Simchat Torah....and, probably the Shabbat that immediately follows. If I put this recipe up any later, it'll ...

French Apple Tart
September 9, 2011 | 0 Comments

Rosh Hashana and weeks of holidays are fast approaching. I'm crazy busy with catering and want to get more recipes uploaded. Solution at this point: put foods for the holiday onto my catering event menus. 'Tis the season so it should be fine. Tonight's board meeting dinner finished ...

Pareve Sweet Noodle Kugel
June 12, 2011 | 3 Comments

Over the 10 years that the bakery was open, our kugel selection was intentionally pareve. It wasn't only because of the dairy with meat meals issue. We kept in mind the large Chabad community who is strict about cholov Israel, extra kosher milk products. Pareve kugels are just easier to retail i... (Continue to recipe and instructions)

Classic Egg Challah Recipe
January 30, 2011 | 18 Comments

When I first converted, the Spice and Spirit Cookbook, A Lubavitch Women's Cookbook Publication, became my go to resource in the kitchen. More than a cookbook, it includes all the necessary halahic information related to food preparation. If you own this book, please grab it from the shelf. If y...
