Hanukkah. It’s the holiday of lights. Let me say that again. Hanukkah. Chanukkah. Or is it Chanukah? Hanukah? Whatever. It’s the HOLIDAY. OF. LIGHTS. So why does my house look like this?

It’s always about this time of the year when I’m faced with the same conundrum. Do I or don’t I donate to the class fund for my kids’ teachers? Now before you label me as insensitive let’s flesh this out. And just for the record, I’m overly generous. But maybe you can help. At the […]
Why is it that food always looks more appetizing when it’s displayed in little bowls? Even food that you wouldn’t normally eat. You should try it sometime with your kids.

So apparently there’s a storm a ‘comin to town. And yet, here we are in the city of refuge (Atlanta) and we’re being told to “Batten Down the Hatches.” Some city of refuge. Aside from this, can we discuss why this term is used so much…or at all? That and “Hunkering Down.” Can’t we just […]

I don’t know about you, but I’m in the market for some SERIOUS CARBS right now. I’m talking Pasta, Pizza, French Bread, Rye Bread, Bread Crumbs, Bread Pudding, or just good old fashioned White Bread…Southern style…with mayonnaise. Yeah, that’s how desperate I am for this stuff. It’s only been a week but not eating bread […]

Been struggling with blog materials lately (Can you tell? The last post was more than two weeks ago) when it dawned on me that Passover coincides with Easter this year.
