Fresh greens during quarantine

I’m avoiding going to stores. Given I’ve got an auto-immune disorder, I’m diabetic, and I’m on several medicines that reduce my immune system to barely anything, the thought of going into stores right now makes me itchy. Thanks to my food storage and weekly… Continue Reading “Fresh greens during quarantine”

Taking it one day at a time

I hope everyone is well out there in the pandem-osphere. Life here is…. Well… I already worked remotely full time, and I have for several years, so nothing has really changed on the surface. Except I’m distracted. And worried. And tired a lot. And… Continue Reading “Taking it one day at a time”

Those who are able… Continue Reading “Yom Kippur reflections – and check out our Judaica shop!”

An update for the (Jewish) new year

I’ve been really terrible about blogging lately. To be honest, I’m not sure anyone cares about anything I have to say, so I wonder why I continue to maintain this blog. Granted, I’ve had it for ten years, and I always hope my life… Continue Reading “An update for the (Jewish) new year”

Shabbos Shakshuka!

I finally made Shashuka – the delicious, tomato-y, eggy dish originating from North Africa and eaten by Jews across the globe – for Shabbos morning breakfast and it was deee-lish! After looking at a bunch of recipes online, I did what I do best – I… Continue Reading “Shabbos Shakshuka!”
