An Easy DYI for the New Year: A Stairway Composite

This new year there are several home projects that I plan to tackle: painting our guest bathroom in stripes (kind of scared of this one!), prettying up some book shelves with wallpaper, spiffing up our bedroom decor. However, one project has been ongoing in my apartment (in a fun add-a-pearl kind of way, not a... Read more »

Jews Don’t Send Happy Holidays Cards*

Jews Don’t Send Happy Holidays Cards*
I have never sent a happy holidays card. Ever. Growing up Jewish, it was simply not something that we “did.” Yes, my mother cheerfully displayed the happy holidays cards from our non-Jewish friends, but it was very clear to us kids that our Jewish friends would not be sending cards. Or, in the rare instance... Read more »

Scrumptious Hanukkah Table Settings

Scrumptious Hanukkah Table Settings
For all my Hanukkah celebrating friends, Happy Hanukkah!  It sure snuck up early this year.  And if you haven’t quite gotten around to planning your Hanukkah celebration, no worries, there’s still another weekend to go (with it being 8 days and all).  Here’s some table setting eye candy for inspiration: I think this table setting...

Suc(culent) It!

Suc(culent) It!
I know, terrible heading. I couldn’t help it. It was just too easy. Anyways….if a plant could be “in,” it would be succulents.

Dreaming of Mashed Taters…and all things Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year.  There’s nothing I love more than getting together with family and friends to eat and drink, so a holiday devoted to just that – plus taking the time to truly think about all we have to be thankful for – is, to me, the ideal holiday.

A Children’s Books Themed Baby Shower for a Book-Loving Family

A Children’s Books Themed Baby Shower for a Book-Loving Family
This past weekend, I threw a baby shower for one of my good friends. My co-conspirator planner and I had such a great time planning the shower, both because the shower was a (successful!) surprise (mom-to-be thought it was a later weekend and a much smaller affair), and because we came up with the perfect...

Dinner Parties: Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (whew...I was busy!)

Dinner Parties: Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (whew...I was busy!)
One of my very favorite things to do is have a dinner party. It’s actually why I went to culinary arts school – I think few things bring people together like food……and wine(!) – and I wanted to feel comfortable in the kitchen so I could throw a party sans stress. I held my first... Read more »

Chewables Home

Chewables Home
I love blogging about food on Chewables. It’s an ideal combination of some of my favorite things: food, eating out, being healthy, and writing. Having my own blog has also introduced me to the robust world that is the blogosphere, and over the past year and a half of blogging, I’ve become a bit of... Read more »
