Most weeks, I have a game plan for all of our meals and a grocery list to organize my trip. I know which nights will be crockpot meals, which nights will be leftovers, and I even anticipate which nights I’ll probably be too tired to cook! But I started this week a day too late.

If you are preparing your house for the Jewish holiday of Passover– this is the ultimate way of […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Growing up, my dad really liked tapioca pudding and I could never understand why he enjoyed eating eyeballs. They looks gooey and slimey and smelled like playdough. I also remember seeing vats of it at chinese buffet restaurants and was again reminded of things like eyeballs and fish eggs. Then I discovered that with a […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
