This is a Thai-Style salad that I have adapted from the amazing Thai Vegetarian Cooking (1991) by Vatharin Shumichitr. I can’t claim that it is truly Thai; I did not follow the recipe exactly, both because of the ingredients that I had on hand, and our preferences. It was still delicious!

Gluten Free (GF) Passover Granola with Quinoa Flakes
Substituting Quinoa flakes (available from organic / health food stores) for rolled oats makes for a delightful granola with no more work and great taste. Another Passover miracle?
Vegan Caramel Sauce
This recipe started out as a way to solve the problem of how to make caramel without butter, ie to make parve or vegan caramel for Vegan Chocolate Matzah Bark. It ended up tasting too good to be just a means to an end.
UPDATED – Vegan Chocolate Matzah Bark
There are many versions of Passover (Matzah) Chocolate Bark. This variation is both vegan and a bit healthier at the margin. Still this is essentially candy for dessert. Shakespeare wrote that “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Whatever you call yours, it should taste as sweet!

I am not sure why we stopped making it (and eating it), however of the blue last week my husband asked if I would make him some granola. Now we are off and running again.

After our relocation from Jerusalem to Zichron Yaakov we were initially living yet another temporary apartment with limited storage and a weekly box of fruits and vegetables was just too much. At the same time the quality and taste are amazing and we missed the experience of supporting local organic farming.
Japanese (Rationing) Fruit Cake
This is my favorite fruitcake, from a recipe handed down by my Bubbe Leah (Levy) Weisenfeld (z”l). This cake was a staple in our house when I was growing up.
