Tex Mex Chocolate Rugelach wide

I think I was born to be a Texan. I love big hair, country music, and cowboys (and their boots). This inspired me to put a little spice—and local pecans—into my rugelach. This version uses yeast to make a croissant-rugelach hybrid.  


Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Babka wide

This rich, yeasted bread is filled, in this case, with pretty much the best flavor combination of all time. It’s chocolate and peanut butter, with a touch of sea salt for good measure. The name babka comes from the Yiddish for grandmother, Bubbe. And given that I owe my love affair with Jewish food to my Bubbe, this cake is extra special to me.  


Pistachio Chocolate Krembos

What in the name of Elijah is a krembo, you may be asking. This chocolate-dipped marshmallow cookie magic is seen as a winter alternative to ice cream in Israel.
