Speculoos-Dipped Strawberries

Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Some of us dismiss it as a cheesy Hallmark holiday. Some of us revel in the traditional chocolate and champagne. Some are happy to celebrate their loved ones, some are unbearably lonely, and some are just plain angry. Love does that to us.

I’m no expert, but as [...]

Fried Dried-Apple Hand Pies

When I talk family traditions and family recipes on Savour Fare, I’m usually talking about my family – the family I was born into, or the family I’ve made with Ken and Nuni and Boo. My family is close (now that my cousin has moved back to LA from NYC, the farthest away anyone [...]

Mincemeat Rugelach

Mincemeat Rugelach Rugelach dough, of course, is very similar to a lightly sweetened pie dough, and mincemeat, with its combo of dried fruit and sugar, is not that dissimilar from traditional rugelach filling. Rugelach is a traditional Jewish cookie, of course, and Mincemeat is a traditional Christmas treat, but I have an ecumenical attitude when it comes to good food. And good these are — not too sweet, crisp on the outside with a soft center.

And if you want lighter still, you can make smaller cookies by forming into pinwheels and slicing before baking. [...]

Eggnog Rum Balls

Eggnog Rum Balls
So on to cookies. Because what is a celebration without cookies? I’ve always loved eggnog – it has been an integral part of The holiday.

Vanilla, nutmeg and rum, but in a convenient bite sized form. Now that’s something to celebrate! [...]

S’Mores Krispie Treats: the Bake Sale Sweet Spot

0abb29d4d1b2ce105e72479e0b5e684be94e6a4b These S’Mores Krispie Treats were my contribution to the bake sale. They are easy to make. They are big. They have visible chocolate AND marshmallows. They recall not one but two favorite childhood treats — S’Mores and Rice Krispie Treats. And they are sweet. They are very sweet. My husband called them diabetic shock in a convenient bar form. In other words — PERFECT bake sale fodder. And they got snapped up (though not as fast as those little ghost pops, but I don’t have the patience to make those.) [...]
