Hello Virtual Cooking Class, I hope all is going well.  Binyamin is 13 weeks old, Yaakov is helping return his fallen pacifier and giving hugs and kisses whenever he can.  Nava is also helping, getting him diapers and wipes and playing with him and reading him stories.  So, in the arena of “healthy” treats for the helpers – I want to make a peanut butter cookie. I found a recipe from Paula Deen that has 3 ingredients – peanut butter, sugar and an egg.  We’re trying those out today, I found a recipe for tagalogs (the Girl Scout cookie).  However, I was hoping for a kind of energy cookie – that has protein and I would feel like our children are eating something good for them as well as being good tasting.  And hysterically, as I was looking around for a recipe – I…

My husband has wanted to eat pop tarts for years, but for whatever reason, pop tarts aren’t kosher (I believe there are some kinds of pop tarts that are kosher, but I think they are the “healthy” ones, and really, who wants to eat the healthy pop tarts – I want the gooey, yummy chocolatey ones, if we can make them). “Bon Appetit” earlier this year had posted a recipe for pop tarts with strawberry filling.
