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 🎄 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

goat cheese, fig and walnut apéro cake

  We're planning a trip to France 🇫🇷  this summer and of course I'm already thinking about the restaurants we will try and the meals, including apéro that we will be enjoying during our visit.  My husband and I are  going to the wedding of a dear friend in the South of France, in Antibes to be precise.  We are staying by the outdoor market which is wonderful, I visited the market a few years ago.  We will be surrounded by bakeries and cheese shops as well as assorted take away food emporiums.  Of course I had to take a small apartment in the middle of the old town which has many outdoor places to sip Rosé🍷  while nibbling on appetizers or apéro as they say in France, which sounds delightful.   I made this savory quick bread or cake inspired by Dorie Greenspan from The NY Times, so we could practice apéro -savoring small bites of thick sliced bread with glasses of crisp cold white wine- before dinner at home in Northern California before our trip this summer to the south of F
