In a Nutshell:
Caramel Crunch 

Spread General Mills Dulce de Leche Toast Crunch Cereal on a piece of parchment paper in a single layer. Melt one or more of your favorite bars of chocolate and drizzle generously over the cereal. Let harden and store in an airtight container. If you wait too long before putting it in the container, there might not be any left to put away ;).

What’s the best way to make a smooth cheesecake if I don’t have a mixer? 

Skip your upper body workout because you’ll need a lot of arm strength!! Or... Use a handheld beater.

Kitchen fave

With summer coming up, I started seeing stone fruits at the market and cherries are one of my favorites. I’m not into gadgets (they take too much space!) but I got an OXO cherry pitter on sale and it makes pitting cherries so much fun. Whether I use the cherries for baking or just give it to the kids to enjoy, it makes removing the pits fast and efficient. It’s one of those things I never knew I needed until I used it.

FT, help me!!

Do you cook in advance or do a lot of cooking on Yom Tov?

I usually try to plan my menu a week to ten days before Yom Tov so I can break down the meal components and prepare what I can in advance. I like to bake my cheesecakes and whip up my frozen desserts and cakes or anything that freezes well within the week before Yom Tov, leaving me with only the items that need to be made fresh on Erev Yom Tov or Yom Tov itself.

Ok, Quick: 

Milchig or fleishig seudah on Shavuos?

I think fleishig is much easier, but being that we have more girls than boys, they always prefer milchig if given the choice.
