Nutella S'Mores

1 jar Nutella
1 bag chocolate chip Cookies
1 bag marshmallows

Spread thick layer of Nutella on one cookie. Carefully toast a marshmallow and place on top of the Nutella. Spread the marshmallow almost to the edges. Cover with a second cookie to form a sandwich.

Heavenly Hazelnut Pound Cake

1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 store-bought pound cake
1 cup Nutella
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1 tablespoon orange liqueur
1 lemon, zested
Blackberries and raspberries, for garnish
Lightly toast the almonds in a small skillet. Set aside to cool.

Cut the pound cake in half, horizontally. Spread the chocolate spread on the cut side of both cake pieces. Sprinkle with toasted almonds. Then place the top half of the cake back onto the bottom half.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the whipped cream, orange liqueur and the zest. Cut the pound cake into 1-inch slices and serve with the whipped cream, blackberries and raspberries.

Raw Kosher Soul

If you are like me, from November all the way through December, you ate drank, and stayed merry. Now it’s back to getting in shape and being healthy for the new year.

The question is where does one begin? Put down the carbs and let go of the fried food honey. Add a little raw to your diet and watch those holiday love handles melt away.

Here are two recipes in the raw and packed with kosher soul. Your tastebuds won't know the difference!

Nosh on,

Asparagus Pesto

1 ½ cups diced asparagus
3 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup pine nuts
¼ cup walnuts
1 tablespoon of fresh basil
1-2 teaspoons of sea salt
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

Mix the first six ingredients in a food processor. Slowly add the olive oil. Use as a dip or spread

Mango Pudding

2 Mangos
1/4 Lime (Optional)
Shredded Coconut & Chopped Pecans, to taste

Use a vegetable peeler to peel mangos. Then place a knife flush to one of the flat sides of the mango pit and cut the mango away from the pit. Add 1/4 lime and blend until perfectly smooth. To complete the dessert, pour into dessert cups/dishes and add shredded coconut and chopped pecans to taste. This also tastes good just as the pureed mango
