posted Mon March 31st 2014 @ 10:41 AM

Mayim Bialik has a new cookbook out, which is already getting a lot of publicity and great reviews. It's called Mayim's Vegan Table: More Than 100 Great-Tasting and Healthy Recipes from My Family to Yours. Read More »

Wearing the Younger, Wearing the Older (Devorah)
posted Tue March 11th 2014 @ 4:08 PM

Since the last time I wrote about wearing my baby, I have been blessed with a second child (and a new, awesome carrier!).  My daughter was given her own child-sized carrier to play with, and we've been happily wrapping and tying and buckling away around the house and outside. Read More »

article linkWatch the new video - "I want my NJP!" (Yael)
posted Fri August 2nd 2013 @ 11:08 AM

Get ready for the relaunch of Natural Jewish Parenting! I'm about to start a crowd-funding campaign and a bunch of new publicity, so the website and the print magazine can have a new lease on life. The time is right! Read More »

Hearty Tomato Lentil Soup (Devorah)
posted Thu November 29th 2012 @ 2:51 AM

Similar to minestrone, this delicious soup has everything you need for a full meal: veggies, protein, and the option of carbs.  Our family likes it so much that I have to make a full recipe of it once a week and it doesn't even last more than three days.  You can throw this together at breakfast and eat it at dinner after a long day of work.

article linkBooms and Sirens (Devorah)
posted Tue November 20th 2012 @ 11:55 AM

When I made aliyah six years ago, I knew that I was moving to Israel and taking the good with the bad.  More often than not this means dealing with ridiculous bureaucracy alongside having strangers on the street truly care about your wellbeing, or dealing with assimilating into a new language and culture while at the same time having a million helping hands in the process.

After the Confetti (Channie)
posted Sun November 11th 2012 @ 4:09 AM

At many of the sheva brachot, held for my daughter and my new son-in-law, the bubbles, confetti, and kindred accoutrements available, were meant to enhance the “fun” tenor of those evenings. Now, days later, fewer and fewer bits of those sparkly appurtenances showed up in my family’s laundry, in our laundry baskets, and on the floor, in front of our washing machine. Read More »

article linkSushi Salad (Devorah)
posted Sat September 29th 2012 @ 5:09 PM

I am a big fan of sushi, but it is very expensive if you get it premade.  I discovered several years back that you can make it in your own home for a fraction of the price.  I don't usually have the time or patience to make the proper rolls, though, so instead I have started making this sushi salad - all the sushi yumminess without the hard work.  I'm sure the Japanese would cringe.

article linkMore Passages: Weddings and New Years (Channie)
posted Sun September 16th 2012 @ 6:09 AM

Whereas I have not yet morphed into a little Jewish grandmother, who is: capable of using her elbows in the shuk, adept at calmly daven Tehillim amidst throwing-taffy children, and skilled in harrumphing unfair prices quoted by cabbies, I am evolving, nonetheless. One is never too old or otherwise too far gone to be nudged to new levels of challenge. My children’s growth attests to the contrary.  Read More »

Flying the Coop...For Beginners (Devorah)
posted Tue August 28th 2012 @ 4:42 PM

My 22-month-old daughter just had her first day in mishpachton (home daycare).  This wonderful opportunity literally dropped into our laps less than a week ago, and here we are sending our baby off to be in someone else's care when she has only ever been at home.  Do you sense the waterworks coming on?  Ha.  Not a chance.

article linkTo the Chuppah without Interference (Channie)
posted Tue August 21st 2012 @ 4:08 PM

“Marriage.” I allow the word to roll around on my tongue. Missy Older is, now, mazel tov, a kallah. She has a chatan. They are getting married. They, B’ezrat Hashem, will share a life of health, of wealth, and of joy. He is a wonderful young man, Baruch Hashem! Computer Cowboy and I will be his in-laws and our machatunim will be our daughter’s parents by marriage. Read More »

article linkGoing Primal (DrMilotay)
posted Fri August 10th 2012 @ 4:03 AM

A hair over two years ago I was in a car accident. While there have been a lot of effects on my life and my family`s, one of the most visible was that I gained 57lbs during the first four months after it. I was profoundly nauseous because of my vestibular injuries. The weird thing is that I craved greasy high carb foods when nauseous. I did things like having two cans of Pringles for lunch, because for a very short time, they made me feel better. Anything that would stop the nausea was good in my books, as it had got to the point where my children were making games up about tatti puking. Read More »

article linkBuzzed on Bees (DrMilotay)
posted Fri August 10th 2012 @ 1:23 AM

I was torn between calling this post the Bees Knees or Buzzed on Bees. I decided on the latter, as I get a tangible lift in how I feel after working the hive. Three weeks ago the local bee master (what a great title) delivered a local swarm to our hive that has been sitting for the last several months in hopes of attracting a passing swarm. Read More »
