    I make the world’s best brisket.  That’s not saying a lot since most Jewish women who make brisket claim they make the best. What’s interesting about my brisket is that my opinion does not factor in.  I am a vegetarian so I have no idea how it is.  If I think back a few years,... read on

    My son will be 15 in less than a month.  I cannot believe how fast the time has gone.  I am not only amazed every single day that I am able to love someone this much, but that the love grows every day.  I love him with my entire self, and equally as important, especially at this age,... read on

    What a glorious night!  Skating With The Stars is finally over, and miracle of miracles, Bethenny did not win.  I predicted last night that she would take the crown, but alas the reality gods listened to my prayers and she came in second place.  By second place of course I mean she... read on

    It began innocently enough.  My son asked if he could download the Angry Birds app to my iPhone.  We were waiting at the dentist’s office and he was bored.  Without giving it a second thought I told him to go ahead.  That was the beginning of the end.  My name is Ilana and I am an... read on

    I have a love hate relationship with my son’s Jewish Day School education.  I love that my son went through 10 years in a private school, and hate that it was a financial struggle to keep him there for so long.  In a time when there are a record number of inter-faith marriages, why... read on
