So when this pretty plate broke on Shabbos, it got me thinking.

In that moment of inspiration I thought about the many different "broken" (human and natural -rather) aspects of my life that I choose not to publicize.
I decided to save the broken pieces, to actually photograph it and post it.

May this image represent the realities of real life and all my Imperfections, ranging from the stressful 'Omelettes-for-Dinner' kinda days to the many other life challenges I encounter.
May this post represent the reality: that NO ONE and no ones life is as perfect as their Instagram feed.
Social media has created jealous behavior over illusions.
Sadly some people are envious of things lifestyles and relationships that don't even exist.

It happens every day.
People open big stores and businesses and then the rumors go out that they will fail.
It's sad.
The "farginning" struggle has always been strong.
Scrolling through people's polished social media lives, just quadruples the struggle for many. 'Sinas Chinom' (baseless hatred) and Lashon Hura (evil tongue- gossip) often stems simply from pure jealousy.
That is why the Beis Hamikdosh is broken.

Dear friends,
Life is short. We want Moshiach in our days, so let's not envy, but support. Let's not hate, but love - truly love. ❤️Raizy

I know many men help out with the Shabbos cooking.
Some do the chulent and some the gefilta fish.
Thanks god not mine!
Not because anything is wrong with it, god forbid. I actually think it's wonderful when the guys chip in and help out with the housework.
I personally want NO ONE meddling in my quarters of the Kitchen, though.
But I'm fine with him prepping his "cool" (pun intended) 'mishegasim", like these Beer glasses he does.

One of my Go-to dessert.
Flaky sandwich filled with vanilla whip and berries🍓. Seriously. Who doesn't love💕??!? .
FLAKY DOUGH: Ready bought puff pastry squares. Baked in a pre-heated oven @400 for about 8-10 minutes or till golden and puffed.
CREAM: One 16 oz. Whipped topping whipped till stiff peaks, then mix in a half bag of vanilla instant pudding powder.
BERRIES: clean blueberries and clean & slice Strawberries.
Bring it all together, as shown in the above image, remember to sprinkle top with confection sugar. You can add a mint leaf for garnish too...

My staples. ✔️✔️✔️#Restocked 😊

This is one of the projects I did back in the day as a "Food Decorating Counselor". I let my kids watch me compile one mini picnic table, and then copy one on their own. They loved it❤️.

My very own Acapella choir. #NoFilter #IPromise 😂🤣 I was taking my tablescape pics, and my kids were running around singing... and I thought how perfect! #HomemadeAcapella

This recipe comes with permission from the Crew @baponorganix. Their Ice pop molds are available on Amazon. (Search for Bapon stainless Steel Ice Pop Molds). I
Watermelon Pops
1 ½ cups watermelon, diced

¾ cup strawberries, (frozen, defrosted)

3 tablespoons chocolate chips, optional

¼ cup coconut milk, (regular or light)

3-4 kiwis, diced

In a blender, food processor or with a hand blender, puree the watermelon and strawberries until smooth band set aside.

Puree kiwi separately, and set aside.

In your mold, fill 2/3 way with your watermelon puree. Stir in chocolate chips which will be the seeds in the watermelon. Freeze this layer for 30 minutes.

For the next layer pour in a layer of coconut milk on top of the frozen watermelon, leaving room for the kiwi layer on top. Pop the molds back in the freezer for an additional 30 minutes.

Pour the pureed kiwi on top of the frozen coconut milk.

Cover mold, add sticks and freeze for at least 5 hours or overnight.

To remove from mold, run hot or warm water over the outside of the pop holder, then the ice pop will easily slide out.

At this event I'll tell you more about myself (and how I got into all of this😉). I'll show you how to whip up some fabulous dairy dishes in my trademark simplistic fashion.
And there will be food too, of course.
I am very passionate about the work of @wlcr_makor, and I would very much appreciate your participation and donation for this worthy cause.

Another great recipe for @monseyglatt . Steak aside, This salad is Special even on its own!!! The dressing is so unique and fresh, Totally worth Shlepping out a food processor for.
For those of you not familiar with Jicama (prounounced hi-ke-ma), it's a starchy type of root vegetable, that I would put into the kohlrabi/radish family. You can eat it raw as well as cooked. If you like kohlrabi and radish it's worth exploring this as well... 🍅Steak Salad with Tomato Vinaigrette🍅
Serves: 4-6
2 teaspoons chilli powder
2 teaspoons light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon paprika
2 boneless New York strip steak (about 1 inch thick; 1 ¼ pounds total)
Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
Extra virgin olive oil, for brushing
1 red onion, sliced into ½ inch rounds
½ cup cherry tomatoes
Juice of 3 limes
2 teaspoons adobo sauce (or sauce from a jar of hot peppers)
1 teaspoon honey
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
2 heads of Romaine lettuce, leaves torn
1 ½ lbs. assorted heirloom tomatoes, cut into chunks
1 small jicama, peeled & julienned
½ cup fresh cilantro
Make the steak: Preheat a grill to medium.
Mix the chilli powder, brown sugar and paprika in a small bowl. Season the steaks with salt and pepper and rub with the spice mixture; set aside.
Make the vinaigrette: puree the cherry tomatoes in a food processor with the lime juice, adobo sauce and honey. While machine is running, add the olive oil and puree till smooth. Season with salt & pepper.
Brush the steaks with olive oil and grill 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium- rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, brush the red onion slices with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Grill the onion, turning occasionally, until softened and charred in spots, about 8 minutes. Thinly slice the steak against the grain. Roughly chop the onion.
Assemble the salad. Divide the lettuce among the plates. Top with the onion, steak, heirloom tomatoes, jicama and drizzle with about half of the vinaigrette, sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with the remaining vinaigre

Perfect easy-shmeezy dessert.
I have no idea where this recipe originates from, but it's just perfect, any way you serve it.


1 16 oz. whipped topping
1 bag frozen strawberries
2 eggs
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 graham pie crusts
Blend all the ingredients together (besides for the crust) in a blender or with a hand blender. Pour mixture into crusts and freeze.

I was organizing my children's closets today (watch my stories to see more), and I stopped at my daughter's collection of Shells.
It gets me every time.
I know that when I purchase a dress from a non-Jewish company, I will have to invest in the mending or a shell.
But why when I spend full-price on an outfit from a high-end Jewish company, can't they do the clothing (above a size 6) in adherence with Jewish Modesty laws?
If they were retailing in Macy's as well, I would understand.
But these brands, especially the Robe manufacturers are servicing only our Heimishe Clientelle. #RipOff
So why?
The cap sleeves are long time passé. Shells are actually long out of style. Even in the secular world, the vintage collars and sleeves are in, so why are they not being on trend?
I don't get it.
