Hi Nina

I love your blog, and your latest post reminds me of Abe's 3 month-long trip last year to Israel w/ his Sr Class. En route to the airport, when I inquired as to how he managed to squeeze so many essentials into so few pieces of luggage, it became apparent that he hadn't bothered to glance at the back of the packing list! He had neglected to include sheets, towels, etc. etc. (Alas, a mad dash back & forth by Mom saved the day...).


Funny! Boys are definitely more casual. But you're luckily he's like that about his electronics; I wish my son was...


Haha, he's a GUY!

Enough said.

I had exactly the same experience, and reaction, when DJ went off to college for the first time last year! I just count my blessings - I see what my brothers and sisters-in-law go through with my four nieces and I just thank heavens that since I could only have one, it is a boy!

What I'm Reading

What I'm Cooking

  • Cheap Ceviche
    This is almost a mock ceviche because it's made with junk fish (tilapia) and surimi, the tofu of fish. However, with the right amounts of lime juice, cilantro, onion and hot sauce, even cheap fish makes a fabulous ceviche. I chopped up a 1/2 pound of tilapia and combined it with 2 packages of chunked surimi. Marinate in juice of 5 limes, 1/2 red onion chopped fine, and one head of cilantro chopped fine. Add a healthy squirt of Sriracha sauce and refrigerate.
  • Collard Greens
    My CSA is sending us lots of green love in the form of collard greens. Here's my very delicious veggie-but-smoky recipe. In a large pot add 1 cup vegetable broth, 1 cup water. Nice pinch of salt, and 3/4 tsp. Spanish smoked Paprika. Add your chopped collards and simmer gently for at least 45 minutes.
  • Tzatziki Sauce
    Just outstanding on everything. Take a container of Greek style yogurt (no-fat, low -fat, doesn't matter). Grate 2-3 thin skinned middle eastern cukes on a box grater and squeeze out all the water. Mince 3 cloves of garlic VERY fine. Stir cucumber and garlic into yogurt, add a splash of olive oil and a grind of black pepper. Dunk in vegetable of your choice, slather on spanakopitas, etc.
  • Polenta
    Apparently the par-boiled polenta I'm using is considered ca-ca by serious cooks. I've found it to be utterly delicious, especially smothered with sauteed portobello mushrooms. I will give plain old yellow cornmeal polenta a try after Thanksgiving.
  • Hangar Steak
    Grilled in a cast iron pan in the oven, on broil. Remarkably tender and so quick. Salt, pepper and smoked paprika for seasoning.
  • Brussels Sprouts + Corn
    A smashing combination -- the bitter tang of the Brussels Sprouts with the sweetness of corn. Saute with olive oil, salt and pepper. C'est tout!
  • Stuffed Cabbage
    My favorite recipe From the NY Times Jewish Cookbook, made with fresh cranberries and canned cranberry sauce. Total yum.
