reprinted from the PJ Library newsletter, September 2008 This past month, my daughter Ella received a copy of The Hardest Word from the PJ Library. In this story, a giant mythical bird called the Ziz accidentally destroys a vegetable garden […]

Look no further (or is it farther?)

Are you looking for a wonderful apple cake recipe? I was going to post my mom’s, but it turns out that smitten kitchen and I have the same mom. Or at least the same recipe. Her write-up is a lot […]

Bread machine bread that actually tastes good

posted by Homeshuling

I’ve been a little underwhelmed thus far by my new (if you consider something from good-will new) bread machine. The bread smells great but it looks funny and has an odd texture. I’ve come up with one recipe, however, that […]

Is it time for a seder already?

posted by Homeshuling

Although I’ve hardly had time to think about it, Rosh Hashanah is, in fact, just over a week away. We have a couple of new-ish family traditions (we’re a new-ish family after all); I make my mother’s Jewish apple cake […]

Both Ella and Zoe’s PJ Library books for the month of September arrived today. Zoe ripped open the envelope to reveal “Oh, no,” said Zoe. “I hope I don’t get that book,” added Ella. Sigh.

Guess what's Kosher for Passover (this will change your life.)

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, ...
