It is spring and that means gardening! Well… for my husband, not so much me. I like picking things out at Home Depot and building stuff, but the whole maintaining the garden thing is not really my jam. I always get distracted, forget to water and let things die. My husband, however, gets all into […]

Passover Seder Tables 2017

One of my favorite parts of Passover is hosting a bunch of people… location is not important. In this post I am sharing both my Seder tablescapes and I am pretty thrilled with how both of them turned out. One was at my house for our family and the other is a joint venture my […]

Passover Matzah Tostada (21 Day Fix Recipe)

I have to say, I love Passover… for the most part. I love planning a Seder, setting a table, cooking for the whole family and all the tradition that goes along with it. However, I have never wanted pizza more than I do on the 7th day of Passover. Matzah is all fun and games […]

Challah Dogs

Being Jewish, challah is totally a thing. Especially for my friend Laurel and I. We always have a way of getting roped into large fundraisers and many times it finds us in the kitchen. We are pretty willing participants and currently we are making thousands of Hamantaschen for Purim. That isn’t why we are here […]

Large Felt Flowers for Spring!

 I was compensated in exchange for this post, however, all opinions and ideas are my own. Spring is coming and even though the people from the east or north might throw rocks at me, we had one heck of a winter her in San Diego this year. We went from most of the state being […]

D’lish Donut Shopkin Cake

The little Miss had her birthday yesterday and for the family party I let her have free choice for cake theme. Not surprisingly, she chose Shopkins and also not surprisingly, I said of course! Why? Because all these cake videos on Facebook have me thinking I can do things- they make it look so “easy”. […]

Magnolia Leaf Square Wreath

Some supplies used were given to me in exchange for this post but all thoughts, ideas and opinions are my own. When you have made as many wreaths as I have, and have a “can’t do the same things twice” complex, you start looking at things in new ways. I know that there is a […]
