DSC_0652There is only one food that really is trade-market on Purim, Hamentaschen! As I started writing this blog, I realized that other than the fact that I see and eat Hamentaschen every year, I don’t really know much about them. ThAe most interesting aspect for me to learn was the origin, of the name “Hamentaschen”, and the peculiar shape. So being the nerd that I am, I searched the web a little, and came across some interesting facts

For the origin of the name:

In Hebrew Hamentaschen are called “Oznay Haman” meaning “Haman’s Ears”. Now Haman is the villain in our story so why would we be calling our delicious pastry by this name. Well it’s said that it is a reminder of how they used to chop of criminal’s ears. But let’s not think about that too much. More

Apple Pie for Ben!

DSC_0574Yesterday was my brother Ben’s birthday. He isn’t really a dessert person, especially not chocolate!  But if there is one dessert that he loves to use, it’s something with apples. Ben’s a great cook he makes amazing schnitzel, his pizza is always a favorite and he makes a mean apple pie too. Just so you guys understand Ben’s love for pie goes along way. He and my dad drove down the American East Coast on a hunt after small diners with homemade pies. Today I won’t be making he’s recipe, instead I will be making a tribute pie.

Happy Birthday Ben!
