About Me

Who am I?  Today…

I grew up in the east-side suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio with my parents, brother and all four of my grandparents within a 5-mile radius.  I went to Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana and Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel for my undergraduate degree.  I moved to Boston after college for work and met my husband after only a year in Beantown.  After getting engaged in Boston, we moved to New Jersey, Las Vegas, Houston and finally have returned home to Cleveland.  Throughout all that, we had three children (one in each state other than Ohio), bought and sold three homes and held down several jobs.  None more important than MOM.

Our home is Kosher so I adapt all of the recipes I post or include links to.  My kids are well versed on “pretend bacon and pretend meat.”  My husband only drinks almond milk so I use that or soy milk to make many of my dishes parve.  Most of my baking I do without dairy so it can be used whenever.  Last year, my mother-in-law gave us her giant Kitchen Aid mixer and it has become my favorite tool when baking parve.  And just last month, I went to Big Lots and invested in some extra kitchen pots and utensils to make parve soups.  Now that winter is really here, we like a lot of soup.

Why blog?  Besides the fact that my darling husband has been after me for over a year to start this, I enjoy cooking and entertaining and sharing recipes and cooking tips with my friends.  For me, there is nothing better than good friends and good food (good wine is also a plus).  So read, ask questions, post tips and enjoy the blog.  Just remember, it’s a work in progress.

  1. This is great — menu planning is my downfall — perhaps you’ll be my inspiration to get it ‘right’ finally 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
