One of the bakeries where I grew up baked the best little olive rolls: small, with a chewy crust and the fluffiest softest bread inside, flecked with salty olives. I haven't managed to replicate those, but this bread has come closest to scratching the itc...
Caramel is one of those things that has to be homemade, dairy, and full fat. No shortcuts. It should be rich, smooth, and buttery, with a hint of salt to balance the sweetness. Warm. Fragrant. Decadent. You can use this caramel sauce for just about anythi...

I've decided to go simple with these Rosh Hashanah apple turnovers. The pastry is pre-made, so you're not doing much more than dicing up some apples and assembling them. Apples are one of the sweet foods that we eat on Rosh Hashanah to symbolize our hope ...
The High Holidays are a couple of weeks away, and I know many of you like prepare in advance. I’ve selected some recipes that freeze well so that closer to the holiday you’ll have time to make the dishes that taste best fresh. In general, things that free...
