It’s not like I’m the first person to ever throw a party. It’s even less likely that I’m the first person to throw a birthday party at their house. But I may win the most crazy one while doing so. I’ve already been baking for weeks. The requirement being that everything must be “Gabby friendly.” Fortunately in the world of […]

The Passover Challenge

April 9, 2012

Last Friday at sundown started Passover. This kick started a week of matzah, avoiding bread and bread products for a lot of Jewish people. There are other stipulations like avoiding corn syrup and yeast in things like beer too. The thing is, at the risk of sounding religious, G-d has been good to me. I am very blessed. And if […]

My fave is Brooke Burke…

December 26, 2011

I’m not sure why Jews take pride in knowing which celebrities are Jewish but we just do. Maybe it’s because we exist in a world of non-Jews that sometimes we feel left out. And there’s clearly no shortage of Jews in Hollywood. We take pride in being amongst many that have a lot of talent – Adam Sandler has reminded […]

Chrismukkah by Rachel Thompson

December 15, 2011

I grew up as what I endearingly call, a super jew. My Mom was the music teacher at my temple so I was always involved from a very young age. From religious school to Hebrew school, Jewish Overnight Camps and Temple Youth Groups, I really took it in. It became a central part of my identity. When it came time […]

King of Spoiled

December 14, 2011

One big present or eight little presents? For the majority of my childhood, I received eight presents for Chanukah (one gift per night). Of course the eight gifts weren’t huge – some were things like new pajamas, others were fun earrings or maybe even a book. My mom always made sure I had a gift each night to open. I […]

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

December 8, 2011

I, much like most people, love the holiday season. The lights sparkling along streets and shopping centers, the buzz of people coming and going, the joyful upbeat songs in stores, the whole thing is so uplifting. Drew, being three, is finally starting to pick up on the season. For the first time I am confronted with what Christmas means to […]

New Year’s Resolution #31

October 9, 2011

I haven’t blogged in a few days. Mostly because I was super busy. I’ve been busy atoning for my sins. It was the holiest day in the Jewish religion, Yom Kippur. From sundown on Friday until sundown-ish on Saturday, I fasted. I did not do this happily, rather I was a crabby, miserable human being but I did it. Of […]

Nana Jean’s Two Cents

September 28, 2011

In honor of the Jewish New Year, I baked my Great-Grandma’s cake. Actually I’ve been baking it a lot lately. Mostly because it passes several requirements… a) It’s easy b) Gabby can eat it and enjoys eating it c) We just went apple picking and have so many apples d) It’s not super fattening e) It’s delicious My new favorite […]

The Phenomenon of Time

September 26, 2011

It’s always weird how time has a way of making you feel. How sometimes something feels like just yesterday and it was years ago. Yet other times a short time feels like a long time. These feelings are especially strong when you are talking about your times with your young kids. I barely can remember my life without kids, yet […]

Mission Fun

August 25, 2011

Believe it or not, I not only write a blog but I read blogs. I don’t just read a couple, I read dozens. Hours of my life go by catching up on strangers’ lives. I try to learn what brought them to blogging, what their angle is on blogging and how they got (or if they are) successful blogging. I […]
