Mom’s Apple Cake

With the abundance of apples at this time of year & the Jewish New Year approaching, baking an apple cake seems like a very good idea. There are so many great apple cake recipes… this cake is the one my mom used to make. Diced apples are layered between a simple white cake.

Honey Cookies

I saw this recipe for Honey Cookies on Facebook maybe a couple of years ago. They are sweet, coated with sugar which makes them crunchy on the outside, chewy inside & just plain delicious

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
