Pumpkin Roll – Recipe

All those pumpkins out there from Halloween decorations can be turned into pumpkin paste and baked into a nice Pumpkin Pie, or Pumpkin Roll, or Pumpkin Cheesecake…etc.

If you are like me and leave that pumpkin out there until Thanksgiving, and purchase ready-made pumpkin paste for your baking, then your are ahead of the game with your baking.

Today I will share may recipe for a Pumpkin Roll which is loved by my family.

Irene’s Torte – Recipe

I was searching for a torte recipe for a special occasion. One that would be different from any other tortes I made before, yet not too difficult to prepare. I selected a recipe for Irene’s Torte (I modified it slightly to conform to my taste), from a Ukrainian Traditional Cookery, by Savella Stechishin. I find lots of great recipes in her cook book.

Jewish Apple Cake – Recipe

Rosh Hashanah is a Jewish religious holiday representing the New Year, so traditionally apples dipped in honey are part of the menu during this holiday.

Today I will post my recipe for a Jewish Apple Cake, which was given to me by a friend a couple of decades ago. I was not sure what made this particular recipe “Jewish”, so I turned to my readers for their feedback. One reader explained that Jewish desserts are usually made without dairy, so they can be served alongside the meat dishes, which also makes it a great dessert for Hanukkah holiday. If anyone else has a different take on this theory, please share your comments
