Chocolate caramel covered must be shared matzo crackers

 

If you haven't made chocolate caramel covered matzo crackers aka matzo crack-for a Passover treat, then you must- but be sure to break these crackers into pieces and share, share and finally share these addictive treats without delay, setting aside a small stash for yourself, of course.

Ingredients and Recipe for Chocolate Caramel Covered Must Be Shared Matzo Crackers
Makes enough to share, plus small stash for yourself

4 sheets matzo crackers, plus a little extra from a 5th cracker to fill in the baking pan
2 sticks unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
Grey sea salt
1 & 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips 
1 cup toasted pecans, chopped

Preheat the oven to 375F.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil with parchment paper on top.
Place the matzo crackers on top of the parchment paper, using 4 whole matzo and pieces of a fifth one to fill in at the edge.
Place the butter cubes and the brown sugar in a heavy medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat, cook and stir mixture for 3 minutes.  Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract with a pinch of grey sea salt.  Pour over the matzo crackers, spreading the mixture to cover all the crackers evenly.
Place the baking sheet with covered matzo crackers into the oven and bake for 12-14 minutes or until the mixture is bubbling all over.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and place on a rack.  Evenly sprinkle the chocolate chips over the hot topping and spread the melting chocolate using a thin flexible spatula to cover.
Sprinkle top with grey sea salt to taste and the chopped toasted pecans.
Cool completely, remove the matzo crack from the pan in one piece and break into pieces.
Store in a large Tupperware, this will not last long.

pear jam with saffron infused honey and cardamom

  Pear Jam with Saffron Infused Honey and Cardamom The summer after high school I worked sorting Bartlett pears at the Scotts Valley Fruit Exchange in Lake County California.  I thought I would never touch or eat another pear again in my life. But, here I am years years later making pear jam in my kitchen with pears, honey and saffron grown in Lake County.  A few weeks ago My husband and I went to visit friends in Kelseyville at their finca, they generously supplied me with the pears from their orchard-Finca Castelero- for my jam.  I will never forget getting up early in the morning and riding my bike across the valley from my cousin's house to work a long hot day sorting pears.  I remember thinking whoever came up with the idea of creating a cooperative to sort, pack and send pears from family farms, including my cousin's family farm on what is now called Hendricks road, to markets all over the country really had a good idea!  I never looked at pears in the grocery store the s

meyer lemon olive oil cake

We had our house inspected by the fire department so we could make it safer during wild fire season, which is now several months of the year in California.  One of the suggestions was to remove several large ornamental grasses from the front yard because embers from a wild fire could start a fire inside the grasses and they were all too close to the house.  The large grasses actually die completely back in the winter and were just starting to leaf out again when we ripped them all out, good-bye 👋   The good news is I don't miss the decorative grasses at all but the other news is the front of our house now looks like my Meyer lemon 🍋  olive oil cake photo, very simple, less is more.  Preparing our surroundings for fire season or even just thinking about fire season sucks but lemon cake will help with that.  This cake is simple and definitely delicious with the lemony glaze, make it before the red flag 🚩 warnings start.

spicy orange chicken with fancy small chopped hot house tomatoes

  My first Chinese cooking classes covered: the extremely important exercise of boning an entire chicken, why we often find too much chopped celery in Chinese food, tips on dating in a Chinese family, and a handful of simple stir fry recipes, like plum chicken with walnuts, to make at home in a wok.  Over the years I've incorporated those first basic concepts I learned in my classes into every stir-fry I make, going rogue on many a recipe.  The final class was a tour of Chinatown in San Francisco and a visit to the Wok Shop to purchase an authentic carbon steel wok with the necessary tools.  I was nine months pregnant and gave birth right before the last class, so I missed my Wok Shop visit and tour.  I've since had a tour visiting many interesting shops in Chinatown in San Francisco.  If you've never visited Chinatown- you're in for a treat-it's fun for shopping and of course- a delicious multi-course Lunch in a Chinese restaurant.  Ok, I know you're dying to k
