ShareMuch is made of corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day. But to me, there is nothing more truly Irish than the potato. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some corned beef.  It’s flavorful and salty, and tender to the bone. The problem is, it’s not really Irish.  It’s English.  Or Jewish.  Or, […]

ShareThose of you who reside in the Northeast can attest to the fact that this feels like one of the longest winters in history. It’s only February, yet I find myself longing for spring and warm breezes earlier and more often than I have in years. I’m not one of those people who sink into […]

ShareWhen I was a sophomore in college, I had to get my tonsils and adenoids removed. At the same time, I also had holes poked into my sinus pockets so they would drain more efficiently. All of this happened over Christmas break, and though the doctor said it would be only about 3-4 days until […]

We’re moving.  To the ‘burbs.  I’m still in shock.  The last weeks have flown by in a flurry of house inspecting, contract signing, apartment listing and finance fretting.  We move […]

ShareOne of my first pieces of “real” mail upon moving to the Big Apple was an invitation to come to the Park Avenue Synagogue for an evening of discussion about the state of our Jewry.  It was gorgeous, almost like a wedding invitation, on heavy card stock with embossed blue print.  It even had that […]

ShareI am an hors d’oeuvres junkie. My favorite kind of parties are cocktail parties, and not just because of the copious amounts of booze. That’s right, folks, I’m the girl who follows the food passers around eating all the nibbles off their trays. I’ve even been known to stand strategically near the kitchen doors so […]

ShareI know, people. It’s supposed to be an apple a day. But this colorful (not to mention lovely) little side dish is a surefire way to eat healthy without even realizing it. Chock full of fresh veggies, its a simple way to use up leftover garden delights. I’m trying to squeeze as much out of […]

ShareThe summer after I graduated from college, I took off on a backpack tour with my friend Katie.  We hit most of the major cities in Western Europe, including the lovely city of Munich, where we drank beer in steins bigger than our heads and grew increasingly impressed by the larger than life women who […]
