Mother’s Day Your Way

Moms are all different and unique. Therefore, Mother’s Day should be celebrated in just as many different ways.  There are the double mom families and the single mom families. There are the grandma families and the “missing mom” families.  Finding the right gift or outing doesn’t have to be difficult.  Flowers are appreciated by some…

Matzoh Beyond Passover

In our family, we have the advantage of not being religious so we don’t survive on matzoh alone for the entire week of Passover.  This may be why we can love and appreciate this flat crunchy not at all bread-like substance so much.  Either that or butter makes everything better. For my daughter, myself and…

Easter: A Tisket A Tasket A Local Boston Basket

I love Easter.  Well, we don’t celebrate Easter but I love the memory of Easter brunches in Toronto.  We used to go fairly often to my parents’ friend’s place; they were like family to us.  We would drive a good hour to get there and when we did we were rewarded with a table of…

Chilled Out & Filled Up:  Brunch at Club Passim

I haven’t been to Club Passim in a very long time.  So much has changed and yet so much has remained the same.  The space has the same feel, the music is still mellow and wonderful (neither too loud nor just background music).  What is new is the space is slightly larger than I remember…

All the Matzoh Shapes: 

Matzoh had always been square my whole life.  Then recently, Israeli matzoh appeared in the markets that were round, and now thanks to Manischewitz there is triangle matzoh and mini matzoh too.  I was recently sent some matzoh kids for review. Manischewitz has some new options for Passover this year.  There are the oh so adorable…

The Dab of Donizetti and Celebrations of Spring: Boston Ballet’s Wings of Wax

It is hard to think about flying too close to the sun, when here in New England, the sun is still hiding and playing hard-to-get.  Inside the Boston Opera House, spring is in full bloom.  Boston Ballet’s latest show is a trio of ballets that begins with Balanchine’s spirited Donizetti. https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fbostonballet%2Fvideos%2F10154520526122607%2F&show_text=0&width=560 Donizetti was originally created…

Lincoln Tavern Brunch: South Boston is Only 5 Miles from Here

Okay, I’ll admit it.  To me South Boston is a bit of a fantastical distant land.  I’ve heard of that particular ‘hood and certainly seen it portrayed in the movies but the reality of Southie didn’t quite seem approachable.  The problem is that in my real life, real world existence, I had a growing list…

I Don’t Celebrate Any Old Day: Pie Day

Pi is a pretty special number.  It is an irrational number (I can be irrational sometimes too, but my love of pie is all reasonable). The date 3/14 is known as Pi Day because it represents the 1st three digits of pi.  It is also the birthday of Albert Einstein, who was born in 1879….
