It doesn’t take $95

The Kindergarten shabbat box was delivered to our door after school today. (Ella was home for a “personal day” because we have family visiting from out of town.) She and Zoe were so excited that they arranged a special shabbat table for their dolls, crammed into the corner of our small kitchen. So what if we can no longer open the pantry?

Shabbat Shalom, Jenny and Sofie and baby Sofie, our knock-off American Girl dolls from Target. Proof that you don’t need to spend $95 to have a Jewish doll, just children with Jewish neshamas.

Guess what's Kosher for Passover (this will change your life.)
I'm not exaggerating. The bane of my Passover existence has been pareve baking. I cook a lot more meat during the holiday than I do the rest of the year, which means a lot more pareve desserts. Which has, up until now, usually meant margarine ...

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
I'm not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah - from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz - and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, ...

Best Hamentashen Ever, even better. And, a Purim opera.

Edible Purim baskets. And, introducing...the cookie fairies!
