    Over the past few years I’ve been able to wrest control of Thanksgiving away from both sides of the family. No more multi-night sleepovers at the in-laws’. No more haggling over dishes and kid messes at my parents’ house. Now it’s all about getting our house ready for... Read More

    On Thanksgiving it takes so much energy to get all the main dishes to the table that I try not to worry too much about appetizers. Do we really need to provide our guests with something to eat before we eat? Hosting etiquette says we do, and I understand that it’s part of the... Read More

    I’m not usually a fan of hot beverages. I don’t drink coffee, I prefer my apple cider cold, and I would rather my wine not mulled. But there’s one hot drink I’ll indulge in when lower temperatures hit. I love spicy, milky Indian chai—but I don’t love... Read More

    If you’re hosting a Halloween party this weekend, forget the spiced pumpkin Yankee Candle; the aroma of roasted pumpkin seeds fills a kitchen with the scents of fall. And those scents can vary depending on your tastes. Chances are you’ve roasted pumpkin seeds before. Simply... Read More

    I love knishes—they’re probably at the top of my Jewish food list. I’ve never been a big fan of blinztes, and brisket doesn’t really excite me. But a good knish has me talking for weeks! Ever since I read “Knish: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food” by... Read More
