Ferraro Roche PB Layered Pops

It's getting warm in Jerusalem and that means its OK to start eating ice cream. Hubby and I bought some vanilla bean ice cream and chocolate syrup. One day on my daily stroll through Pinterest-ville I ran into a recipe that made my mouth water. 

Here is my version of the recipe

Ferraro Roche PB Layered Pops- 
You can use any king of toppings/ fillings you like!!

Into two little paper cups I crushed several roasted peanuts. I then layered some ice cream, choc fudge, a Ferraro Roche ball, more ice cream, peanut butter and a final layer of ice cream and crushed peanuts. You can layer anyway you want! I put a little extra peanut butter for hubby and a little more Ferraro Roche for me. Insert your Popsicle stick in about 3/4 of the way and pop in the freezer for a few hours!!

Passover is only a few days away and my mom, grandma and sister are coming to visit!! We are so excited to have them here with us for the holiday!! We're gonna take them up north to Metulla, take a tour of Masada, Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea and show them all around Jerusalem.

and...we've booked our trip home to America at the end of June too!! Alrighty enough rambling, back to the ice cream. =) 

-Shabbat Shalom!

Veggie Bake

After posting a picture of the dish hubby and I cooked up for Shabbat dinner this past Friday, I got a large response of friends on Facebook. Our assignment from our friends, who were hosting the dinner, was to make something hearty with veggies. Hubby really had his heart set on making brownies but after we saw how easy this was to make and how delicious it was, I'm sure we'll be making this time and time again. The seven of us at the dinner gobbled it up in no time!

I found this recipe online at Olives and Bread
Here is her recipe: Baked Vegetables with Cheese

Sorry for the late update! As soon as we came back from our trip we were bombarded with Purim, the start of another semester for Evan, sickness and deciding weather we wanted to move early or not. 
Here are a few pictures from our trip.
