Beautiful baked goods! I'm exausted just thinking about all that work.

It's been wonderful having you part of TFL. I appreciate your generosity in sharing your experience and knowledge with us. I'm looking forward to another year of exploiting them.

Happy Hannukah to you and your family!

You certainly know what you are doing. As stated above Norm, you are an uncommon man. I appreciate the time you have taken to help me personally on many levels. I have learned much from you.


Here's hoping we all have a healthy New Year and enjoy our family and friends.


See you on the other side of the year.

Too bad I'm not in the neighborhood, or I'd definitely stop in to sample some of your treats.  They look absolutely delicious.

Everything looks just delicious!  The shot of you at the job is great.  Thanks for sharing your expertise, your clear explanations here have helped me many times.


A Happy and Healthy New Year to you and your family!

And Norm, if I were in the neighborhood you probably would have to start baking and wouldn't invite me again! The apple danishes, jam filled cookies and challah would keep me for a few hours.


Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Norm, I wondered what all you would be baking when you spoke here of your large flour order.  Now I see.  Thanks so much for the pictures.  Do you have a recipe you would share for the dough of the Danish?  It really looks good.  Hope you have a wonderful holiday and a healthy New Year.

What a splendid display of baking, Norm! I hope there's a few left to nibble on New Year's Eve!


Your groaning board sings!


All the best to you and yours for the new year.

That is so impressive! What are those pretty colored layered ones? With the pink and green and yellow and chocolate? They are so festive! Makes me think of those 3-flavored ice creams!

Such a variety - it takes me all my time to plan, shop for and prepare one item.


I really fancy those multicoloured slices too.

nbicomputers's picture

the 3 color slices are actualy a modified pound cake mix. colered with food color and spread thin on 12x18 trays


assembled with jam and a last layer of marzpan then coated with choc on top and bottom


then cut to size the whole cookie is only about 1 inch tall so the hard part is getting the pound cake thin and baking fast so it stays soft and  doesen't burn


without the choc they frezz well and can be made well in advance

You are at the top of your game. We were all worried about your health earlier this year, and it is good to see you can again do the things you love. You surely are an inspiration to us all. And by the way the rolls (from about 2 weeks ago) were wonderful. Thank you for sharing the recipe with us all, and to everyone who keeps it alive.

Hi Norm,


Having found this site only in the past few weeks, and being superbusy with my own baking, have been a bit lax on the computer, so just now came across this astounding posting.  Let me say, please, that you, sir, are amazing!  Thank you for sharing these pics and your expertise with everyone here.  As with Eli, you do a beautiful job of making people feel welcome here as well. Thank you, and best wishes for a Happy, Healthy New Year!

It's all lovely.  But for some reason those spritz cookies with the glacee cherries are what I crave...They look so good!

This is for Norm or anyone who knows how to make an old fashioned Jewish Bakery style checkerborad cake.  I have the commercialized cake pans the you use but those are round and just for the look.  I want something that resembles something I had that looks more like the cake I saw in Norms blog.  Does anyone have any recipes and instructions to share to help me out?
