One ritual we look forward to every week is Sunday waffles. This has been a tradition for some time now and one we have really looked forward to including Yitzchak in. I originally made the King Arthur Flour sourdough waffle recipe, but over time have adapted it to fit our needs (we often do not have buttermilk, I wanted mixed flours, and I don’t like measuring things).
I have gotten several requests for a list of Yitzchak’s first 100-ish foods so I am sharing it here along with a separate list of spices (to the best of my recollection). I am not an expert on BLW. I am just a mom who has done some research and is trying to raise an […]
Though we plan to travel a lot with Yitzchak, we see the road trip we recently took as special. It was his “paternity leave trip,” the trip we were able to take longer because of paternity leave. Since he will not remember the trip we thought it would be nice to create a board book […]
Planning a cross-country road trip can be really daunting. I know when I first sat down at my computer staring at Google Maps with a handful of sites I wanted to see on the other side of the country it was hard to get started. I thought it could be useful to share our itinerary […]
If the thought of camping with a baby sounds totally terrifying I understand. It was something we kind of decided to do on a whim. We had planned our cross-country road trip with no camping because it sounded intimidating. When we switched our plans to avoid the heatwave in Arizona on our way back we decided camping was the best way to see Yellowstone.
Come follow our adventures! We recently returned from a five-week road trip where we visited 24 states and 20 National Parks with an infant (Yitzchak was two months when we left). From NYC to California and back we logged over 10,000 miles. Follow along here as I recap our trip. I plan to share some […]
I have been doing apple everything this Rosh Hashanah: apple caramel challah, apple babka, apple butter, apple sauce, apples in my lokshen kugel. I had a bag of dried apple chunks and thought, what about apple mandelbrot? I whipped them up into mandelbrot and dipped it in melted butterscotch chips (rather than chocolate chips). I […]
In my quest to put sourdough in everything I decided to try sourdough zucchini bread. It is zucchini season and I consider zucchini bread by far the best use of zucchinis (especially if there are chocolate chips in it). The recipe really isn’t so different than regular zucchini bread. It also isn’t any more difficult. […]
I am always looking for new sourdough recipes and sourdough has really found its way into all the breads I make. Sourdough pita is one example of that. It is delicious and not too much work (though as with all sourdoughs there is a bit of resting time). If you have a pizza stone cooking […]
We have boxes of matzah meal in our pantry from Pesach and realistically I make it rarely, particularly in the summer when it feels too hot for soup. I decided to try something new with the matzah meal making matzah balls we could eat as an appetizer. I once tried Asian stuffed matzah balls but […]
