The best kind of Superbowl food is the kind that’s shareable, delicious, and typically covered with too much cheese. This Pepperoni Pizza Pull Apart Bread totally fits all of those criteria.

This Chocolate Chip Challah is delicious, impressive, and perfect to serve with your Hannukah dinner or on Shabbat! It will disappear off the table.I still clearly remember the first time I made challah. It was probably one of my first, if not my first, experience making any sort of yeast bread. I couldn’t have been older than 7 or 8, and I still remember kneading the sticky dough and making a sticky, floury mess all over the kitchen as my sister and I attempted to craft the challah under the guidance of our Hebrew tutor.

I don’t remember how our challah tasted, or if it even ended up looking like a challah, but I do remember making it being so much fun. [Read more…]

Paleo Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread - sweetened only with bananas! Recipe at Bakerita.comI originally was not going to post this recipe on Bakerita, not only because I already have way too many banana bread recipes on this site, but also because 80% of them include chocolate in some way. Oops. #sorrynotsorry

But…after I made it, and it got devoured within mere hours, with everyone having no idea it was grain-free and no sugar added (besides the chocolate), I decided it needed to be posted. Also: that’s why my pictures are sorta lame. Wasn’t really planning on posting them, but here we are. And YEAH – this is no sugar added. This banana bread is sweetened only with bananas. Of course, I ruined the sugar free thing by adding chunks of chopped chocolate (so much better than chocolate chips guys – try it), but who can resist melted chocolate chunks floated around their banana bread?!?
