Who says we can't keep our standards of Honoring The Shabbos Hamalkah on vacation?
A special Thanks to the concierge @flamingokosher for providing us with a beautiful Heimishe Shabbos מיט אלע מטעמים!
I'm beyond impressed with @flamingokosher villa & services.
Aside for their luxurious villas with Kosher kitchens and all, the cleanliness and services are impeccable! (BTW they have babysitters and day camp programs for the summer and we are seriously considering coming back here with the kids later this Summer, if we can.
I would take such a pampered weekend (or week) (or month) (or summer😜😀), over a dingy bungalow - Anytime!) I
To all my dear followers,
Have a beautiful Shabbos! ❤️Raizy

My office & studio is slowly transforming.
I'm too busy to design it and be fully into it. Yet slowly, I'm adding a 'tchatke' (knick knack) here and a painting there.
These little things and inexpensive 'personal touches' are underrated. They really make bare spaces evolve into personalized havens. 🌸🌸🌸

Taking out a separate Office, Test-Kitchen & Studio and Moving work out of my house was the best decision i ever made. (ok, not the best EVER... I would definitely put more important stuff like my husband first😉, but ok😂.) I
Now, there is no "finishing up" on the computer when the kids walk into the house, and no impromptu photoshoots happening when dinner came out looking beautiful.
Yes, I still find myself going back often after the kids are asleep, but its still worth it.
Juggling motherhood and having your own business is tough, divisions makes it a bit easier.
I would like to publicly thank all of you that messaged me (a while ago when I asked about it on my stories), and supported me to make the move. #Thanks 😙

#WhatsForDinnerTonight Whether you’re Israeli or a shwarma newbie, you gotta try this less-than-30-minute-meal. While my go-to is usually chicken breast, I used pargiot here for super tender & juicy shwarma result.

I bought fresh laffa, but Pita bread works just as well. Stuff your bread with freshly made shwarma chicken, hummus and Israeli salad for a satisfying one-laffa-dinner!
Serves: 4

1.5 lbs. baby chicken - pargiot, cut into very small pieces, about 1.5 inch.

3 Tablespoons Shwarma spice
1 teaspoon Parsley
½ teaspoon Turmeric
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Oil

Preheat oven to 475.
Cube the chicken into small bits, about 1.5 inch pieces. In a big bowl toss the cubed chicken with the oil and spices, till well combined and coated on all sides.

Place chicken pieces in a 9x13 pan and bake for 15- 20 minutes uncovered.

To assemble, smear a laffa or pita bread with a generous amount of hummus, then top with Israeli salad and shwarma chicken. Roll it up and enjoy!
1 cucumber, finely diced
1 large beef tomato, finely diced
½ red onion, finely diced
8 Israeli pickles (in brine), finely diced
1 teaspoon Olive oil
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
Hummus spread
4 laffa or pita breads

Here's another recipe I shot for @monseyglatt.
It's not just another recipe.

And its not just a piece of puff pastry with some cheese and tomatoes.
Trust me!

This combination of ingredients is incredible.

You MUST make this, so you understand. The cheese mixture on top of the flakey dough, topped with the heirloom tomatoes.... Don't leave out anything. Every ingredient is a major player here, the lemon zest adds that tang of citrus and the scallions is just on point.

I added a sprinkling of some crushed coarse pink himalayan salt, as well. It was incredible.
Please tell me you are trying this! And please let me know after you did what you thin of it.
Thanks in advance😉. I
🍅Puff Pastry Heirloom Tomato Tart🍅
1 sheet puff pastry (half of a 17-ounce package, thawed)
All-purpose flour, for dusting
8 oz. whipped cream cheese, at room temperature
1/3 cup sour cream
½ teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
¼ teaspoon sugar
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1-2 tablespoon fresh scallions, for topping
12 ounces assorted heirloom tomatoes, halved
Preheat the oven to 400.

Unfold the puff pastry onto a floured piece of parchment paper and roll out into a 9 x 11inch rectangle. Score 1/2 inch from the edge all the way around, using a paring knife. Slide the pastry (on the parchment) onto a baking sheet. Poke the middle all over with a fork, then bake until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Transfer to a rack and let cool completely.
Meanwhile, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a large bowl and beat with a mixer on medium speed until smooth; stir in the chives. Spread evenly over the cooled crust. Arrange the tomatoes on top; season with salt & pepper and top with scallions.

I had a very long list when I looked for a husband. #Forreal  I didn't know it, but my mother actually saved the list. She presented it back to me last year.
Looking back I just feel blessed. While there sure were some nitty-gritty requirements listed, it was an overall good synopsis of important qualities necessary in a spouse.
What I do realize however, is some factors I omitted that are so crucial.
While I think my 18-year-old self was pretty mature, I was also pretty selfish. I completely forgot to consider my future children and overlooked 'requesting' the strong qualities that make a potential good father. .
As I watch my kids reciprocate the love and the discipline that only a father can provide, I'm filled with immense gratification to the one above.
Yes, by now I realize how central a father is to the emotional well-being of children.
It amazes me the capabilities god instilled in men to have that special knack & "know how" to build the self-esteem of their children.
Its a story, words of praise and radiant smiles that makes an ordinary man into a Father.
God loves us, he knows what we need, even when we don't. #Grateful😊

Hosting Guest Part II

This was not in plan.
But then @meet_the_goldmans & @geeteegeee bought up a very crucial point in the comments, that I wanted to address.
So here are my thoughts:
🅰️When I lived in a tiny two bedroom (one bedroom and one closet to be more precise 😉) apartment in Boro Park, I always had guest from abroad sleeping over.
No, there was no room for a shmancy' cart or a side table. (I did however always prepare the nicest I could, placing fresh towels and mini toiletries on the bed.) I would place my kids in my bedroom, and we all shared one bathroom.
My point is: "If there is room in the heart ❤️ there is room in the home🏠." One should never refrain from hosting guest, just because they don't have the means or room to host them at five star ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ accommodations.
🅱️While I admit fresh peonies and a 24 hour "tea room" might not be necessary. I still firmly believe in the basics:
Such as fresh linen and some clear shelves to unpack clothing. (In BP that meant removing my kids clothes from the closet and piling them all ontop of my dresser for the week.) I
I have personally arrived as a guest, where there was no bed prepared for my baby, no linen on the bed and no place to unpack a thing. No, I didn't feel welcomed at all and actually felt like heading right back home.
So while I do say, you should host guest even if the room might not be the nicest. I also think that if you can't exert yourself and do the minimal to make your guest feel welcomed and wanted, don't invite them at all.
No, this isn't a contradiction.

At least. ❤️ Raizy

#ShabbosTreat Here is some Red velvet goodness. But even better, these are filled with a cream cheese filling. The texture of these cookies are creamy-like, similar to a brookie.
filled with a Cream Cheese filling🔴
Yields: Approx. 32 cookies

3 cups flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks Mehadrin butter
1 1/3 cups white sugar
3 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoon lemon juice
4 teaspoon red food coloring
8 ounces Mehadrin cream cheese
1 cup confection sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350.
Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl (flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt), and set aside.
In a mixer beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Slowly add rest of the ingredients while mixing. Make sure each ingredient is well combined before adding the next. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until dough comes together.
With wet hands, form balls (about the size of 2 Tbsp.). Lay balls on cookie sheets.
Bake for 15 minutes.
In a small bowl combine the cheese filling
Allow cookies to fully cool before filling them.
To fill, take two cookies, place about a teaspoon of filling on one then close with the second to form a sandwich.

My affinity for strawberries drove me to seek out nearby farms. #Passion 🍓 Strawberry season is obviously significant to me. #LifeOfAStrawberryAddict
After eating so many of these soft, juicy red fruits you would think I would know all there is to know about them. But this common Strawberry fruit has so many juicy secrets!

Speaking of juicy secrets, I'll let you in on one. Just one. For now😉. Here you go:
The last time you smelled a rose and enjoyed its sweet scent, you were sniffing a relative of the strawberry! Though they are very different plants, strawberries and roses are in the same family.

To me, learning about Strawberry's relatives has just strengthened my love for them.
What should I say except that I'm really really liking their family?!?! #TrueLove ❤️ I thank Hashem every day for all the beauty & all the strawberries he instilled in the world, just for me.
#FeelingBlessed 😊

How I learnt (and learn) the proper way to host guest: 🅰️From my Mother.
I grew up with lots of guest visiting my home, my mother would literally put her life on hold (well almost😉) and welcome them beautifully. The guest was always first. 🅱️By being a guest.
After being welcomed to a filthy place, a house with no food in reach, or a bed sans linen, I definitely learnt what makes one feel unwelcomed!
Please be so kind and share the nicest gesture with which you were welcomed/hosted as a guest?
I love 💙 getting ideas!
