LOL! Gotta see those aviators!
And Puleeze next time you bake MEASURE YOUR INGREDIENTS so that I can try to make these stuff!


Sounds like a Pesach cake bc of all the ground nuts. Will have to eventually grind them myself if I don't want to but the expensive pre-ground ones to make these types of recipes.

And btw surprised you remember Corey Hart, especially since you don't live in Canada. I forgot about him too until I moved here and they play that song on the radio all the time. What can I say, forgot to bring a Torah CD to the car...:)


Esther, they still play that song?? Is Canada 30 years behind? I have that song in my head all day since I wrote this post. I'm so annoyed! Anyhow, ground walnuts are much cheaper than almonds, and you don't need that much. If you don't mind adding a little extra carbs, you can put some instant oats. Thanks for writing in!


RL, I know! I'm so sorry! I have a thing against measuring. Really. I don't know if it's my ego or my lack of patience. Probably both. I just hate following recipes. Next time, I'll do my best to slow down and measure. Did you check out my salmon recipe? That was one cup: one cup. If you want to see my cool aviators, email me at racheli@breslev.co.il. Looking forward to hearing from you!


Racheli, I'm drooling all over the keyboard over your chocolate cake! OK, I'm exaggerating...just a little.

So, I asked my rav how much grain I have to put in my low-carb bread recipe before it becomes eligible for lechem mi-shneh on Shabbat; he said 51% of the flour has to be one of the 5 grains. I am really trying here! Right now we're using 50 g. whole spelt pitot and splitting one, hubby and I each getting 10 or 11 g. net carbs each meal and I want to get it down as far as I can. The regular low-carb "bread" probably runs about 2g. carbs for the same weight. The last time I made regular bread, it was so tough, I haven't tried since; never mind a grain-and-nut mixture! Or, even just a nut mixture!

Am I crazy?

Thankfully, it's after the fast now. ;=)


Chava, you're so funny! I just did another chocolate cake that came out seriously unbelievable, but I don't think anyone would appreciate me posting it without a recipe! If you want, email me and I'll send you a pic. As for Shabbat, it's the one day I like to indulge in carbs and sugar, so I eat regular challah and dessert, depending on if I made dessert or not. The challah is such a pleasure, I roll my eyes and savor every bite!! I don't know how strict you are on your diet, but the important thing is that you should make it sustainable and not have the feeling that you can't live like this. Thanks so much for writing in! (I made a pareve chocolate swirl cheesecake that I thought about saving for tisha b'av.) ;)))
