Mitzvah Mom, French Toast Bagels & Holiday Weekend

french toast bagels

  In less than two weeks, the Bar Mitzvah will have come and gone which means that I can go back to being a normal person rather than a Mitzvah Mom and you won’t have to listen to me talk about the planning anymore. I promise. For now though, just be proud with me of each […]

Lightened Up Vegan Apple Crisp

  This is just another example as to why I cannot set up and follow a strict blog editorial calendar. I had every intention of sharing next week’s dinners and grocery shopping with you today but then my son got sick and stayed sick all week, which totally threw me off. Talking to him about dinner […]

Islanders in Brooklyn, Savory Salads & Apple Crisp

pizza

  So Friday night, through the rain via train (we even did the change at Jamaica) we went to see our Islanders play their first ever opening night game in Brooklyn. This season is going to be an adjustment and let’s just leave it at that before I go off on a long-winded ranting tirade. What I will say […]

A Thanksgiving Thinking Out Loud

Papyrus Ice Cream Cone card

  How about making this a Thanksgiving Thinking Out loud kind of morning? My all-time favorite Thanksgiving picture is from when my son was around six weeks old (2003). I mean, he cried if we held him, he cried whenever (and wherever) we tried to put him down so why not attempt to put him […]

What do you do With Your Apple Peels & Lots of Recipe Links

  If you know me, you know that a 9:45 am spin class is super late for me to work out. I had two breakfasts, baked an apple crumb coffee cake and consumed three cups of coffee prior to getting myself to Lifetime and on a spin bike. I made the apple crumb coffee cake for my […]

What I Ate Wednesday Fun

  You are going to be so proud of my will power. I was in Whole Foods on Monday shopping for Rosh Hashanah and completely held myself together when passing the food bar. The roasted vegetables display was bountiful and beautiful BUT I was able to resist and my wallet was super thankful. I have even held […]

Winter Apple Recipe And A KINDAWESOME Giveaway

You just don’t know what you got until it’s gone. I have been without paper towels all week. Why haven’t I bought a new role? I don’t know. All I know is that I am reaching the point where this can’t continue. Hanukkah isn’t continuing anymore either. Please note the melted wax on my counter […]

WIAW – Homemade Hummus and Winter Apples

  Wow. Loving the comments on yesterday’s post! It is SO NICE  to know that not only are we learning to love life without letting a scale determine our mood but OH MY, how refreshing to realize and see how not alone we all are in our experiences. I do have a part two in mind for yesterday’s […]

Rosh Hashanah and Women’s Health Run10Feed10 info

Rumor has it today is already Wednesday. And, get this, Rosh Hashanah begins tonight at sundown. The holidays are super early this year and while I am never one to turn down challah, apples and honey, I do have a bit of trouble switching from summer mode to fall mode so quickly. The fall produce is a bit behind the […]
