👂🏻💓I love this.
When you come to my page.
How does it make you feel? Comment below.
I always say unfollow the accounts that trigger inadequate feelings inside of you.
Life is painful enough, you don’t need to bring negative feelings into your house, eyes and heart.
Because YOU are ENOUGH.
Keep your chin up princess or your crown will fall.
How has the @chefchaya page Influenced your day, your life, your outlook and why?
Let’s Brainstorm....What’s the next step for CC ... a website?
CC merchandise? A podcast?
Hmmm What’s my next stepping stone ... would love to hear what YOU want.. what you think.
Rise above.
Raise the bar.
Do more.
Live your best life.

I was supposed to get married next week.
A day I waited for many many many years. The whys and questions aren’t important. We lived, we learned and hashem put us in different directions.
The wedding was perfectly planned.
One can plan the most perfect party, if it’s not meant to be. It won’t be. We can make all the plans in the world, life never seems to follow the plans we THINK are the right plans.
You can’t control the wind, but you can direct the sails. I woke up this morning with 2 choices. I can either let the day control me, or I can control the day. I can wallow in bed in self pity, or I can put on red lipstick and face the world ( that doesn’t mean the pain isn’t there ). Don’t let your circumstances define you.
You don’t find a happy life, you MAKE a happy life. You work at it. Remember that time you thought you wouldn’t survive... but you did. And you can again.
I’m sharing this in my time of pain to show you, as an influencer my life is far from perfect. It’s flawed. It’s pained. It’s heartbroken. That social media is more then meets your eyes. Please don’t forget that.
Whatever you are struggling always make sure to have support.
I had the most gorgeous wigs from @diniwigs.
My gown, sophisticated & elegant from @haasbridal.
The kids were dancing out of their skin in excitement with their adorable gowns from @tunzatulle.
I had the wedding lineup of the century.
@andrereichmannphotography his visions of photography and cinematography had me blown away.
The music lineup @aaronteitelbaum + @yedidimchoir + @beriweber was going to be Ther perfect balance of class, orchestra and feel good vibes. Oh and the food... a culinary delight @cb_michaelschick ..has been with us at every wedding, top notch @thechefmw. I was even going to have an incredible Popcorn bar from my friends @popinsanitypopcorn.
Every single account I tagged above I would use over and over and over again. A pleasure ever single step of the way. I tagged them to show them my love, support and appreciation for everything they have done 💗💓💗. #inspirationalquotes #life #quotes

🗣Social media can be a beautiful thing.
Most things that are beautiful also come with pain.
I was cyber bullied on a women’s Facebook Group last week that’s about “women getting real” Someone sent me the screen shots written about me and let me tell you. They weren’t 👹 pretty.
When you choose to go out there in real life or behind a screen to covet, slander & trash someone’s name.
You can never ever take it back.
Never.
Once it’s out there it’s out there.
Embarrassing someone in public is unforgivable.
If following someone on social media triggers responses within you that don’t feel good click UNFOLLOW #Bye Look away. Know yourself. Don’t keep watching. If following someone makes you feel insignificant, insufficient, insecure, ungrateful of your life, jealous, hateful, or just not good feelz inside. Delete.
If it hurts you to see them on vacation, having children, getting married, receiving a gift, being single, smiling, succeeding, or living their life AS THEY SHOW IT.
UNFOLLOW.
I choose to keep my page generally positive, loving, inspirational without negative rants.
Ladies, Know that heartache and pain DOESN’T discriminate.
I have my fair share. We all do.
No one got off free in life.
Instagram is edited real life.
People only show you the highlights.
Instagram is NOT pay per view.
You don’t pay to watch, it’s a FREE service you are willingly watching.
Willingly.
Your own free will.
You are allowing your eyes see it and your heart feel it.
If you don’t protect yourself who will ?
If it triggers you. Let it go.
You owe that you yourself.
Delete the friend on FB, leave the group and unfollow on Instagram. Clean up your life so you feel better inside. Because only you, can take care of you.
I’m human and I so badly wanted to share all those screen shots on my instagram. Bite back. But then I’m no better. The cycle of slander at one point has to stop. I took the high road, while not easy it was the right thing. NO it was NOT easy for me to do that. Taking the moral high road ain’t easy.
Social media platforms are great for expressing ourselves and sharing, but you need to be careful what you take away from it. Xox ❤️

#CCTableSefie 💕💚 Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like, and enjoying it for everything that is is.

If you think it’s easy getting the perfect #Latka Selfie 🤳🏻... Go ahead 😉 try it.
BUT I did perfect the perfect latka #BraggingRights.
Crispy outside. Gooey inside, that’s how we like it around here.
8- 9 Idaho Potatoes from the bag
4 Eggs
2 Tsp Kosher salt
1/8 Tsp white pepper
2 TBS OIL
1/4 Cup Flour
1 TSP baking Powder
Peel potatoes. Soak in cold water. Mix all the ingredients. Using Braun food processor and what they call the “kugel blade” idk the one with the round holes. Add to the egg mixture. And fry. Add carrot to oil ... it does this weird thing where it doesn’t let the oil get gross and black. Those are fancy cooking terms right there. Xoxo ( Do you think mom will let me jack her Braun... for my new house.. it’s the only one that makes good kugel ) #chanukah #f52grams #kosher #jewish #jewishgirl #food #influencer #foodandwine #forkyeah #eeeeeats #foodstagram #food52 #latkes
⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ What’s your latka secret... comment below... people love to read your comments, hacks and tricks.

Beignets #CHAYNuka
Pillowy. Powdery. Perfection.
A perfect marriage of the 2 things I love most: All things fried, and all things foreign. Fried dough isn't easy to resist, so it makes sense that there's a variation of the doughnut in practically every region in the world. 💓🍩💓 Beignet (English pronunciation: /bɛnˈjeɪ/; French: [bɛɲɛ], literally bump), synonymous with the English "fritter", is the French term for a pastry made from deep-fried choux pastry. Beignets can also be made from other types of dough, including yeast dough. Beignets are commonly known in New Orleans as a breakfast served with powdered sugar on top.They are traditionally prepared right before consumption to be eaten fresh and hot.
ChefChaya #Beignets 🇫🇷
1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 1/4 teaspoon dry yeast
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 teaspoons salt
1 cup evaporated milk
7 cups bread flour
1/4 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups confectioners' sugar
Mix water, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl and let sit for 10. In another bowl, beat the eggs, salt and evaporated milk together. Mix egg mixture to the yeast mixture. In mixer add flour, shortening, and the rest... And mix till fully incorporated. Let rise two hours. Roll. Cut into squares. Let rise another 30 min and fry in oil at 350 degrees. Drain a minute or two and then snow with LOTS of powder sugar. #ChayNuka #CcChanukahRecipes #Beignets #donuts #chanukah #hannukah #chanukkah #Chanukah #eeeeeats #food #eeeeeats #foodandwine #thefeedfeed #food52 #f52grams

🙌🏻😍 #TheBlondeCaramel ( Lol that just popped into my head )
Where have I been that past 4 million hours. Slacking on my funny Insta Stories... I have been Elbow deep In caramel heaven filling orders, cooking, wrapping, salting, quality control, packaging these gorgeous, delicious, decadent handmade Artisan Sea Salted Caramels. Now I need to figure out a way to mass produce these, and other products, like a CC LINE... so MORE of you can get your hands on a little piece of eye rolling mouth watering goodness. So I didn’t have to send SOLD about DMs and emails sadly.
Any 💡 Ideas... welcome.
You know I always reach out to you for help. And you guys always pull through xox
Comment below if you’d like me to do another run.... or to ship... or if you have some crazy flavor ideas you think I should try next??? Yes they are Dairy.
Yes they are Cholov Yisroel.
What else should CCandy come out with next? Some Artisan Candy, Fudge, Toffee, Marshmallow... challenge me... #saltedcaramel #caramel #maldonsalt #fleurdesel

🎪 #FunnelCakes ➰➿➰! You know when you were young ( and maybe not so young 😉 ) ... walking through the fair... your head swooning from the intoxicating scent of freshly fried funnel cakes... with snowstorms of powdered sugar.... 🤩 stars in your eyes.
I don’t know about you ... but that sums up every amusement park memory for me.
Funnel Cakes have been on my bucket list ever since... I know you know what I’m saying.
So when #breakstonesbutter asked me to do a #Sponsored Post with butter... I was like DUH ... no brainer #ChanukahIsBetterWithButter or better yet everything is #BetterWithButter.
Recipe adapted @foodnetwork
2 cups milk
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Bean
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) melted butter
Powdered sugar, for topping.
Lots of powdered sugar ... you can add cinnamon if you like. Better yet you can make a spiced honey glaze or Nutella... strawberries and whip, peanut butter and jelly, frosting and sprinkles, chocolate syrup .... ok I’m getting carried away. OMG funnel PIZZA... I’m 😍onto something.
Combine milk, egg, vanilla in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar and gradually add to wet ingredients. Beat with a mixer until a smooth batter forms. Fold in melted butter. Pour batter into a funnel or squeeze bottle while using your index finger to stop the flow of the batter. Bring the funnel over the hot oil and release your finger to start a stream of batter while moving the funnel in a circular motion to create spiral-like shapes. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown and slightly puffed. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. #recipes #foodnetwork #thefeedfeed #eeeeeats #forkyeah #foodandwine #carbiebarbie #frybaby

Week Lessons.
Great things never come from comfort zones.
I shared about the importance and knowledge of Egg freezing ( For singles ) on my other account @carbsandcarats ( which you should follow and I’ll be posting giveaways and fun stuff there ) and I was BLOWN away by your incredible heartwarming and informative responses. EGG Freezing is kinda a taboo and uncomfortable topic, and a topic I really really DID NOT want to talk about for several reasons. But then I thought about it long and hard... I have a really large platform, and not everything is about me, and NOT always about MY level of comfort. I have a responsibility to the public to share important information . Knowledge is power. That’s all. Once people know they can choose to do whatever they wish with that information. I did my job. It was superbly hard and uncomfortable for me. I informed. One thing I always tell myself fear is temporary, regret is forever. In the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take. I took the chance, spoke about a topic I DID NOT want to. I was embarrassed, I was uncomfortable. BUT WOW!!! YOU all embraced me, helped me, shared your most personal stories with me, and allowed me to share something so important with the world. It is because of you we are changing lives. Thank you all for being on this amazing journey with me, supporting me, and always at my side. 🧡❤️ So much love and adoration to all of you.
