Guys! I could hardly believe some of the feedback I got from my super simple Simchas Torah menu (we only had 2-3 items at each meal + challah). While some loved it others were in complete shock over how simple it was. To answer a few questions: Yes, that…

Guys, after much trial and error, I opened up a shop on my website!  I’m super excited about it, although in truth, I was supposed to launch everything over a month ago and was also supposed to do more promotion.  Well, this full-time working mom just did…

FREE resources to help with the upcoming yom tov prep >>>

This is the first year we will be staying home for Rosh Hashana.  Can you believe it?  After almost 10 years, we’ve decided it was high time we make it on our own. While I’m not nervous about the actual days of Yom Tov, I do get nervous about all the…
