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

alfajores de tarragon and chives

 well here we are again Christmas ūüéĄ and covid. This time with a side of alfajores on a fish plate.  Do you have a favorite Christmas cookie or cookies?  As long as the flour, butter, eggs, vanilla and sugar keep flowing- I will be baking Christmas cookies, might even slide over the December 25 cutoff and into January this year. We moved in October.  After a week long getaway to Bandon Dunes, Oregon.  We came back to a new one level, slightly smaller inside and outside new to us home in our same town of Novato.  I think we have electricity gremlins though.  I'm ready to invite my electrician to Christmas dinner since he's here every week.  The latest problem a doorbell chime that almost melted down after continuous buzzing for a day, he's looking for a short in our wiring-don't like the sound of that.  He found it and fixed it, hoorah. We have a ton of unpacked boxes in our new big white garage.  My husband Scott ordered a backyard studio shed for his home office and on

potato salad with homemade tartar sauce, mustard and fresh dill

  further explorations into the zen of making potato salad  I never know where my love of mustard and dill will take me but playing together in a potato salad is a nice selection on the road of top ten hits headed to mealtime.  It's summertime and that's a time for potato salads and homemade pickles but showing up together in a salad -now we are talking about good stuff.  Dijon mustard and fresh dill in a creamy tartar sauce combined with warm lemony virgin olive oil coated  red potatoes cut with the likes of fragrant pickle brine, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar -waking up all those acidic taste zones.  I'm happy with my potato salad concoction and will serve it with just about anything we grill these days, like tonight's butcher made chicken and beef kabobs- yes bring on a bowl of potato salad straight from the fridge-all the work is done ahead in the morning while the house is still cool.  I may have to slice up a cold watermelon, throw together a grilled corn ar
