Jewish
Desserts
mostly pareve Cookies, Cakes & more


I've heard it said that "stressed" is simply "desserts" spelled backwards; could that mean that the antidote to stress is... chocolate?! 

Believe it or not, that may be the case when you are talking about the health benefits of dark chocolate, blueberries and spices like ginger. But indulging too much in sweets, even these yummy Jewish desserts, is probably not the best course of action.

The healthy approach to facing the stress in our lives involves something more intellectual. By taking a step back, seeing the picture from a new angle and placing G-d squarely in the middle of that picture, we suddenly feel better knowing that we are in Hashem’s Hand and not in the hands of man. From that place we can go forward. 

     Before (or after) you look into the delicious dessert recipes below, I invite you to read about the true sweetness in the life of a Jew:  our Torah ➣➣


Sugar & Spice....

Banana Bread ~ the best I've ever tried. It's easy, and open to many creative variations. The potassium in bananas and Omega-3 in nuts make a heart and head healthy combination.

Jewish desserts are not pure indulgences. Dates, fruits, nuts, and even chocolate offer enormous health benefits more....
