Disclaimer: I don’t follow all the intricacies of Passover. I pretty much just avoid bread and bread-style products. I don’t clean out my kitchen or do anything fancy. It is very important to me that my children have some basic identity with our family customs. It’s less about being dogmatic about our religion and more about passing on the rituals […]

Passover the spinach!!!!

April 20, 2016

Guest to the Seder: What can I bring to your Passover Seder? Host: How about a vegetable dish? Guest to the Seder: OK, great! (WTF?!?!?) I have the solution to all your problems! This amazing vegetable side dish has become a fan favorite at our Seders. It’s so good that every year I say that I shouldn’t JUST make it […]

We’ve got doc on speed dial

April 16, 2014

I never want my kids to be sick. Least of all, I do not like my workout regimen being pushed aside for trips to the doctor (especially on the heels of over-eating at Passover seders). That all being said, there’s something so sweet about a sick little child that seems to revert back to their needy infancy ways. Suddenly my […]

April 11, 2012

As mentioned earlier in the week, I’m in the midst of the eight day Passover challenge. Keeping Passover has always been a challenge but now trying to manage Gabby’s allergies and keep Passover is REALLY difficult. Last night I made a meal that I was rather proud of. Tilapia with roasted potatoes I seasoned the tilapia with salt and pepper, […]

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 […]

Passover lives on in Drew

April 22, 2011

This week is Passover and we celebrated by having seders Monday and Tuesday nights. Drew the Jew, as I endearingly like to refer to him, was amazing participating and saying things that I had no idea he knew. Watching my little offspring say a prayer in Hebrew is such a moment of pride. Despite not being very religious, being Jewish […]
