Eggs at the Coffee Table

I was having rough morning. Who am I kidding… I had been having a rough couple of weeks. Nugget has been cutting two top teeth and two top molars for what feels like 52 years. It’s been a drooling, crying, waking up at 3am nightmare around this house. But Sunday was bad. I woke up after not much sleep with a crick in my neck so painful that I couldn’t move my head. Uh great. That’s super helpful when you are the only parent on that day and have a 23 pound......

Homemade Turkey Meatballs For Baby

Our food journey has been really challenging with the nugget. He’s struggled with prolonged vomiting and now has some trauma around eating. Except carbs. He loves his carbs. This summer he was pounding yogurt and milk and eating his weight in puffs, crackers, and all manner of bread products. He was refusing anything else I offered him in the fruit and veg families, with the notable exception of bananas… the great binder of the fruit family. I think you know where this is going… We had so many mornings of horrible crying......

Homemade Beans & Rice

My little guy is about as brand loyal as one year olds get! When it comes to food, he’s pretty much obsessed with the Plum Organics pouches. And of these pouches, his absolute favorite is the Plum World Baby Mexico pouch. The ingredients are beans and rice with sweet corn, red bell pepper, cilantro and lime. Pretty fancy for baby food, eh? Well at $1.30+ per pouch I thought, maybe I can make a close approximation for the nugget for less per serving. I found these recipes online and thought I could......

Ethical Jewish Food Movement

Just so happens, that I got a call the other day from a lovely Denver Post reporter about the Jewish ethical food movement. She was looking for a statement from the JCC about why this is important to add to her piece about Rabbi Soloway and his work in Boulder. We talked for… maybe 30-40 minutes. 🙂 We talked about how the ancient Jews agricultural laws guide us today. How we know now that letting land rest between planting helps the output and Judaism guides us in these things. We spoke about......

We are back!

I want to apologize again for the lack of posts in the past few months. My husband and I were married on the 10th of March and now we are back from our honeymoon. We had some amazing culinary adventures in the South Pacific and we are ready to start posting new, fun Kosher ideas for you all. Again this year, we are planting our gardens so we are excited to have tons of fresh, fun produce to use in our recipes. Look forward to more pickling and easy but unique recipes.......

A culinary decision

Our wedding is in 18 days. 18 DAYS I SAY! I can’t believe how soon that is. We have planned our wedding relatively fast. One of my brother’s best friends from elementary school used to work for the Knot.com… when I told her we were getting married in 5 1/2 months she was shocked and then proceeded to tell me that the average engagement these days is one year. ONE YEAR! Oy! Anyway, we held our invitations back until we made final decisions on our meal at the wedding. We wanted to......

61 Days Until The Wedding!

I just can’t believe how fast time is moving! We are two months away from the wedding and we are trucking! Last week, we booked our photographer. They look amazing! Very nice husband and wife couple who run the business Dox Photo. You should check out their blog here – www.doxphoto.com/blog. We are so excited to have them shoot our wedding day. It was a nerve wracking experience to choose a photographer. These are possibly the most important pictures of my life! It was very reassuring when Khala (the wife) told us......

Food is expensive… Heck… A wedding is expensive!

I know I am not telling anyone anything new here but… man! We just started talking to caterers and florists… and wow! Things can really add up. Dan and I are both pretty money conscious so it hit us hard when we saw the first catering proposal. Wow. Here’s the thing… normal weddings are expensive… our wedding will be even more so because it has to be kosher. Thus, we have to pay for a person to be onsite the whole time to supervise the kashrut and we have to pay for......

The Perfect Ahhhh

I was frantic. Crummy few weeks at work, working too hard on two huge events. I was stressed to near tears. Then my friend ‘D’ called me. “Hey little sister! I have something I want you to try.” “Grumble, grumble, grumble, I need a drink… grumble” – was my approximate response. “Never mind, I’m coming by your work to drop it off.” “Grumble, grumble, grumble” Click. She dropped off a CUTE little care package with the only thing better than a bottle of wine… chocolate! Chocolate for your Chakras, no less. She......
