This morning, I found out that a friend of mine has cancer. No, wait, that’s Cancer, with a capital ‘C.’ I’ve been processing this all day and am still at a loss for words. I am praying for her health. But my friend’s story isn’t mine to tell. Learning that this wonderful, kind, sweet woman […]

Sunday was a wild, busy day. We spent the morning outside, then rushed off to a family lunch, ran some errands, rushed home, the kids ate dinner and then it was off to Will’s track practice. By the time we got home for the evening, it was late and time for the tired children to […]

When I was younger, my mother had a friend named Shukla. She was a beautiful, funny, brilliant woman from India, who was a fabulous cook as well. We’d occasionally go to her house for amazing homecooked meals, and it was always such a treat. I remember watching her season dishes from little dishes of spices […]

Months and months ago, I bought a bottle of walnut oil, with the good intention of trying it. Except, then I got it home and couldn’t remember what I wanted to try it in. Or why I even thought I would use it. So it sat in the cabinet, untouched. Recently I noticed that lonely […]

For the past two months, I have been staring into my backyard, wondering what we’ll find when all the snow melts. As more snow came, my worries increased. My raised bed garden is back there, and it’s hard to tell what the many feet of snow and ice that piled onto it this winter (all […]

When my husband and I moved to our town, I didn’t realize what a small town we were moving to. I mean, in theory, I knew. The main street is a small drag with a few well-frequented businesses. The school district has neighborhood schools, which all seem a stone’s throw away from where the kids […]

The sun is shining. I know, it doesn’t sound like much, but the first six or so weeks of winter here were marked with gray skies and ever-impending snow. The harsh weather was unlike anything I’d experienced before, and for the first time, I understood the winter blues. I was frantic — trying to harness […]

Last week, Rivki encouraged me to be adventurous with veggies in the winter, since it’s better to enjoy what you are eating then to stick to what’s inexpensive. It makes a lot of sense. I rarely eat beef, instead opting for chicken or turkey or fish, so I spend less on proteins these days. So, […]

Happy Eat. Live. Be. day! You know, we are hitting the point where many people abandon their resolutions or yearly goals and fall back into old habits. That’s why it’s so perfect that this week’s topic is Rut Rescue. Don’t we all fall into ruts sometime? In fact, I think last week I was talking […]

Yesterday, I didn’t feel like eggs in the morning. Or oatmeal. Or cereal. Or anything vaguely resembling a “normal” breakfast. I just didn’t. It reminded me of my younger days when breakfast foods were persona non grata in my life. But I’ve made a concerted effort in recent years to eat breakfast because it’s good […]
