    Son: I feel really lucky to be Jewish.
    Me: Why?
    Son: Purim is so much better then Halloween! 
    Me: Why do you say that?
    Son: On Halloween you have to go door to door to collect your stash of candy, but if you’re Jewish and celebrate Purim, they bring the candy to you.  No walkin around the neighborhood to get your stash. Room service is so much better!

    This week I dedicate Friday Food Days to all our Bubbie and Zadies who were the first to introduce us to most of the recipes hiding in our kitchens.  Please allow me to wax lyrical over my favorite dishes that have been past down from previous generations. A few months ago I had the... read on
