Kentucky Derby Pie

Oh, my good friend and her hubby are coming to NYC for a month. We were going to have a shindig for his b-day, but it turns out their roof won't be ready. I still think I want to make him something special and I know just the thing...

Derby Pie! He is from Kentucky and what could have more soul in it than a Kentucky Derby Pie, packed with fudgy chocolate and nuts. I think I will make a fresh whipped cream to go with it(store bought is fine). Now that is kosher soul at it's finest. D~Lish!

The recipe is below...nosh on..nosh on!

Shoshi's Peach Sundae

Hey kosher foodies,

Did you eat alot over the 4th of July weekend or what. I know I did. Between the barbque and cookies, I think I gained more than a few pounds. It's time to scale it back a bit. Below is a quick and easy recipe with peaches, ricotta, and pecans that I like to call a Peach Sundae..nice, low cal, easy to make, and simply yummers.

So, if you are in the NYC area, I will be at the Grassroots Farmer's Market, on 145th & Eddgecombe, next Saturday (12th)from 11:00am to 1:00pm doing a cooking demo with organic veggies and fruit. If you are in the area stop by and say "Shalom".

Nosh on,

Peach Sundae

1/2 cup of skim ricotta
1/4 cup of pecans, chopped
1/4 peaches, sliced
1 tablespoons raw honey (optional)

Grab a small bowl, put in peaches, top with ricotta, then pecans, drizzle on the honey. Get to noshin'
