If you are just joining me now, last week was my birthday. Don’t worry, I’m not here to make a big deal out of it. I am not one of those people spend an entire month celebrating their bday. Um, a week is too much already. It is called birthDAY- not birthMONTH or birthWEEK, […]

       It was my birthday yesterday. I’m too old at this point for it to be a huge deal, however, this doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate through food. I knew I wanted to make something that truly represents me.

This means:

1. It must be totally immature, something that only children would appreciate. Let’s […]

        You know those window pane cookies? Or ornament cookies? It’s a sugar cookie, with a hole in the center. Inside the hole is melted candy, making it look like colored glass.

         I remember discovering them for the first time in one of my mother’s awesomely 80’s cookbooks. It was a holiday cookie book. Since we […]

             You cried, you groveled, you begged. My initial intent was to maybe share one stuffed strawberry recipe per year. Maybe. Alas, I cannot resist those puppy dog eyes (or emails).

        I have a special man friend in my life. He is hilarious, and generous.  Sean loves all horrible action movies/shows with the worst possible acting I have ever seen in my life. It’s sort of endearing. He is  of Norwegian heritage and VERY proud of this fact. His sister claims he also has a little bit of Irish, but that screws up […]

        Last week was burger week, or something. Every week in the late spring and early summer is burger week in my home, so it didn’t faze me all that much. With Memorial Day weekend fast approaching, and everyone prepping their grills for the summer, I decided that it would be the appropriate time to […]

wer             All mothers are badasses. Even if you are sitting here shaking your head and saying, “Nope my mom is no badass. She scrapbooks and cried over the Ya-Ya Sisterhood,” you are wrong.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Moms are so kick ass. For real. Not that I have to tell you that. I know some very kind and generous people out there, but nobody tops my mom. Literally, the most selfless person I know. She would give away everything she owned to me and my siblings if we […]

I grew up a Hallmark Catholic and Jew.  Some might even say a holiday Catholic or Jew. Let me explain. My mother is Roman Catholic, and my father is Jewish. They wanted to expose my siblings and I to both of their backgrounds. We celebrated Hallmark holidays: Hanukkah and Christmas, Passover and Easter. So one […]
