I have a tiny Manhattan kitchen and it’s currently brimming with dozens of round challah loaves in anticipation of #RoshHashana. This year’s varieties include standard plain, sesame, cinnamon streusel, raisin, and my personal fave — CHOCOLATE CHIP! (Yes, that’s chocolate chip you’re looking at.) Wishing everyone out there all the sweetness, success, and health in the world for this new year! 🍎 🍯
PS be a sport and comment with something positive happening in your life right now. Your happiness = my happiness, and I’d love to share some joy with you!
As of last week, we have been married 7(!) years, which is basically nuts 🥜. In an effort to keep things fresh, we do a lot of weird stuff, like this week, we are communicating mostly in music videos... and we are competitive, obvi. Even with his limited English he may be winning this one. Anyone else on team Weird Relationship Games?
Here’s a secret: nothing on the planet — diy remedies, western medicine, or otherwise — has ever made my body feel quite as healthy as the Dead Sea. I know it’s not a miracle for everyone, but for me it definitely is. Feeling kind sick-ish today so I’m looking at pics of the last time we were there! Missing Israel 🇮🇱 .🌴Brb as I barf 🤢.
Some days I think about running away from #NYC — starting over somewhere else with the hubs and kids, but on days like today, I remember why I stay put with all 4 munchkins in the heart of #Midtown. My biggest was crossing the street and refused to hold my hand (wahhhh!), so I asked why. “Mommy, I’m from the city, I’ve already seen everything weird and gross and bad. I’m not afraid of anything.” I guess that’s good, right?
I took a solid 2.5 hour nap today (hello, best thing that’s happened to me in recent memory), and spent almost that whole time having wild fantasy-style dreams of chocolate babka pie. Like, smutty delish dreams of chocolate and flaky layers of carbs. I didn’t want to wake up, and thank @daniellezpraport for introducing me to this wonder a couple years ago at a @breadsbakery baking class. Also, am I the only one who dreams about food? Tell me your dirtiest carb-laden secrets.
It’s about 1,000 degrees and 800% humidity in #NYC today, and I’m missing my mountain oasis in the #catskills like you can’t believe ...especially the access to toasty smores 🔥 am I the only one melting in today’s heat?! Tell me I’m not alone.
I haven’t eaten any meat in what seems like forever (I’m not usually a meat person, and just got through a long holiday that involved nonstop smoothies), but today I was prob low on iron or something and went kebab-wild. Also, my breath smells like raw red onions right now so you probably don’t want to be my friend IRL. Comment if you want my kebab recipe, bc as your Sephardi friend, that’s basically my top selling point.
Fun thing I learned about Naples: If you’re up for an adventure you can drive about 40 minutes to a protected nature reserve in the #Everglades, also known as the 10,000 Islands region because literally there are 10,000 islands. Have you been? We kayaked over to one particularly beautiful and uninhabited patch of land, found surreal 🐚, Native American pottery left behind from hundreds of years ago, and so many bright pink birds we couldn’t keep track. Add to that some dolphins, rays, horseshoe crabs, manatees, and other fun locals, and you have our perfect day. It’s really, really *quaint* out in #chokoloskee though, so if you’re into the finer things, stay at the @innonfifthnaples and make a day trip out of it.
Hi from Naples! I’ve got big news. First, I started a new gig — I’m taking over a travel magazine and my new commute is pretty sweet. Second, this @paxphilomena kaftan is giving me life, and I can’t stop wearing it. Third, I’m in Naples, Florida for a little and looking for everyone’s suggestions! Tell me what to do/see/experience/photograph before I jet back (literally) to NYC.
I love #Manhattan, but I really love our occasional time in #Woodstock so much more. Everyone (except us) has horses, and it’s especially beautiful when neighbors share them 🐎. Today we got my 4 year old, Avi, in the saddle for the first time, and though he was tethered to me and my horse, he completed a long mountain trail with the rest of us. So proud! 💕
