Thanking G-d

There are just moments when thanking G-d comes so easily. You don’t even think about it. Before you eat, after you eat, on shabbat, Rosh Hashanah… we all just say the prayers and don’t think about it. And then there are the moments when you choke over the praise. When tears fill your eyes and the words trip over your tongue. How can I praise you right now? How can I thank you for your wondrous blessings when I am hurting?...

Twitter Spoofing

Recently, I had an interesting situation. A friend emailed me to tell me that someone was tweeting under a very similar username to mine, and mentioning my friends in the tweet. She had sent my usual “Shabbat Shalom” tweet on a Wednesday and @’ed my friends. Odd. I looked her up. Turns out, she had used my header image, my username, and every few hours… tweeted my tweets. I felt violated....

Life|Love|Loss

Life is full of love and loss. Anyone who tells you differently hasn’t lived. Dan and I have talked about this a lot lately. By deciding to start a family, we opened ourselves up to pain and hurt and sadness. We could have decided to wait longer or indefinitely. We could have planned more fun trips around the world, vacationing and buying ‘stuff’ but we both agreed that ‘really living’ includes children for us. Many children. And children, by default, bring happiness but also sadness and pain and challenges. They are an incredible......

Blink of an eye

Life can change in a blink of an eye. Everything is so delicate. We may not realize it because our world is hard and fast but it’s not always. And in the most tragic times, we often close up on ourselves and stay quiet. We create a safe space and control that space. But as I think about this, I am reminded of an episode of the Dennis Prager show’s “Male/Female Hour.” He discusses the importance of having ‘couple’ friends that you can open up to. Often we lie or ‘vaguebook’ or......

A Special Poem on Mother’s Day

For the 1 in 8: Happy mother’s day it comes around every year but when you have empty arms it’s sometimes hard to hear...

Let’s be honest

I’ve not been very good about blogging since marrying that fabulous man I married. Let’s be even more honest… my blog has been a big aimless even for a while before that. It started out being life as a single, Jewish woman in the social media field with some love of Sherlock Holmes thrown in. But it was aimless. I didn’t feel like I had a strong topic. I found a voice when I was in Israel and Israeli life and Jewish learning was all around me. But I lost my voice......

Great Hamentaschen Bake Off of 2014

I know this post is late. I know! But how can you have a Great Hamentaschen Bake Off before Purim! And then I was a slacker. I admit it. A friend of mine and I decided to have a bake off. My recipe can be found here – We Put The Mon in Hamentaschen. This year I made my own plum filling from a recipe I found at The Shiksa In The Kitchen. Here is her recipe. I will give you Megan’s recipes for the dough and the insides as well as......

Garlic Scape and Salmon Frittata

This is a summer favorite in the Kosher, She Eats kitchen. We grow our own garlic scapes and jalapeños and Kosher Hubby cold smokes his own salmon. (Yes, I know… overachievers.) One Sunday morning we decided to forgo our usual cheesey eggs (another KSE kitchen invention) and make frittatas with whatever was in our fridge. I will share the ‘recipe’ and preparation instructions below but first some ideas and explanations. What are garlic scapes? There are two main varieties of garlics and many sub-varieties. These two main varieties are hard-neck and soft-neck.......
