Cooking with Marco Canora – Now That’s a Tupperware Party!

This is a guest post by the fabulous Shari Brooks of MyJudytheFoodie.com.  Be sure to check out her site for recipes, musings and wonderful reflections on following in her mother’s culinary  footsteps.

Promoting a Healthy Relationship to Food for Your Tween

Have you ever used the word “diet” with your kid?  Do you reward or punish with food in your home?  Do you cook – and if you do, do you involve your kids?  We are going to tackle the big topic of kids and food this week at our KidzVuz twitter party.  We’ve all heard […]

What’s for Dinner? Hellmann’s Chicken Challenge

This is a guest post written by Shari Brooks of My Judy the Foodie.  Since I’m a vegetarian (or pescetarian really), and swamped with preparations for the KidzVuz redesign launch in two weeks,  I sent my fellow blogger and fab writer Shari Brooks to cover the Hellmann’s Chicken Challenge for Beccarama.  And I love Hellmann’s […]

One Post, A New Friend and A Look Back on Jewish Italy

Two years ago today I was in Pitigliano Italy, site of one of the oldest Jewish towns in Italy – though of course not anymore.  I blogged every day of our month-long stay in Italy and Pitigliano was particularly hard to write about.  I thought about this post recently because when I wrote it I […]

A Crazy Week: Birthday Parties, Moms Night Out and Teri Hatcher Eats Carbs, Really!

I haven’t written in a while, but not because I’ve been lolling around eating bon bons.  (What are bon bons anyway?)  My daughters celebrated their 9th birthday last week.  I can’t begin to wrap my brain around how my daughters could possibly be nine years-old, but in the world of Girldom nine means a real […]

Nothing Says Thanksgiving Like Jell-O

Yes I am one of those read-all-the-labels, organic milk buying, farmers market shopping, will not make mashed potatoes from a box kind of moms.  But then Thanksgiving rolls around and every inch of my Midwestern rooted soul craves some particularly 1950s-centric foods.  I spent every Thanksgiving of my childhood in suburban Michigan, staying at my […]

Tornados, Tequila and the Totally Adorable Marcela Valladolid

Several weeks ago I went to one of those blogger events that include the promise of good food, fabulous company and a really fun evening – plus a car and driver to whisk me and a few other NYC bloggers to our destination in the wilds of New Jersey.  Okay, it was the suburbs, but […]

Finding My Religion in a Bowl of Matzoh Ball Soup

It’s Rosh Hashanah– the Jewish New Year.  For those of you non-Jews out there Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur make up the High Holidays.  Basically the one time of year that most Jews go to some sort of service and feel officially Jewish.  I grew up secular to a fault.  We did not even go […]
