When I sat down at the beginning of the year, I promised myself that I would keep up with the blog better and then I blinked and it was March. Well I am sorry, but I will try to do better. Just like this blog getting away from me, Purim has snuck-up on me. For … More Chag Purim Sameach! It’s Hamentaschen Season!
In my humble opinion, I think that pies are underrated. Be it your simple apple pie or a savory pie, I can’t get enough of it! There is something about a buttery, flaky crust that just pulls me in. I will admit though, cue the judgment, that 95% of the time I use a pre-made … More Spinach Ricotta Pie
Well, it is a new year! New year and new me…that’s what everyone is saying right? I am not sure I buy into all of that, but I am all for trying to do more or working harder to achieve goals.

My husband and I typically bite the bullet and just suck it up, but this year has been insane. We have both been traveling a ton and it just doesn’t make sense this … More Friendsgiving
For those of you who are not familiar with Rosh Hashanah, it is the Jewish New Year and time for reflection and family. As much as I like the sense of renewal and starting over, I am a huge fan of good food. On my list of favorite holidays based on food, Rosh Hashanah is … More Rosh Hashanah Eats & Treats
Pumpkin, O Pumpkin, Wherefore Art Thou Pumpkin? Today I went to the store to stock up on pumpkin and was informed that there was a pumpkin shortage across the entire USA. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing and the woman I had asked looked at me and said in all seriousness, “if you find … More Pumpkin Bars with Brown Sugar Frosting
It may not be fall yet everywhere in the US, but it Seattle it feels like fall is fully upon us. The changing of the season comes the changing of recipes and the social acceptability of making everything pumpkin flavored. I am all for hopping on the pumpkin wagon and don’t worry, those recipes are … More Spice Cookies
Hello! My hiatus is over and I am almost through my jet-lag. The only benefit of waking up incredibly early is my college team decided that it would be a good idea to have their opening football game in Ireland and it would be at 4:30 am PST. It was nice being awake and functional … More A Foodies Honeymoon
