I'm taking a little spring break from the blog, from work, from DC, from cooking, from cleaning, from Metro, from laundry, from grocery shopping, etc.
See you all soon! Follow along on instagram!
Enjoy the flowers ;)
Happy Purim! Whether you are a religious Jew, a cultural Jew, or just like sweets, you will love these Unorthodox Hamentashen With Fig Jam.
I've made proper hamentashen in the past, but this year I ended up doing something slightly different.
I was out of jam. I did not feel like making hamentashen dough. THEN I thought why not use the frozen rugelach dough I had from making one of Dorie Greenspan's recipes!? Sure rugelach dough and hamentashen dough aren't the same, but I'm not one to follow the rules all the time ;)
The dough issue was solved, but I was still out of jam. That's when I wondered whether you can make jam from dried figs. Turns out you can! Thank you TheKitchn for a great tutorial.
