Chocolate Caramel Matzah “Crack”ersThe Jewish holiday of Passover commemorates the exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. During the 8-day holiday, it is forbidden to eat leavened grains such as wheat, spelt, barley, oats, and rye. The reason for this is that in their haste to escape from Pharaoh and slavery in Egypt, the Jews did not have enough time to wait for bread to rise. Instead, they ate matzah, unleavened bread. While matzah usually gets a bad rap for being dry, when combined with the proper ingredients, it turns into an addictive dessert that even my picky husband can't resist. This chocolate caramel matzah has become a yearly Passover tradition that the kids help make which gets them excited for the holiday. It's fun to include the kids in holiday baking so they learn about their familial traditions and make lasting memories (swipe to see the kids make it through the years!). Chag Sameach (Happy Holidays) to all who celebrate Pesach (Passover)!

Sufganiyot MuffinsWith Chanukah finally here, we baked these “healthified” sufganiyot muffins. Generally, we eat fried jelly donuts stuffed with strawberry jelly on this holiday, so in order to get that same jelly-donut feel, we baked vanilla-maple muffins stuffed with naturally sweetened strawberry preserves. These gluten-free muffins are so unbelievably moist and dusted with cinnamon to give them a warm winter feel.
