B”H Do you like to talk about money? I do. If you’ve been listening to this show for a while, you know that about me. I love money. I love what it can do for us and for our communities. I love making it, investing it, and using it to help others. And, I’m obsessed with helping women gain a better understanding of what money and wealth is really about.
B”H Recently, I was working on something inspiring to say during candle lighting at a Shabbaton that I will be leading in St. Louis and I came across a super cool story that happened at the turn of the millennium and that somehow I had not heard before (most likely because I was not lighting Shabbat candles regularly at the time). But, as you might know from this post, Shabbat candle
B”H I’ll admit that concentration during prayer is not one of my strong points (ok fine, forget concentration, it’s hard enough to get me to sit and pray altogether!) However, the two minutes that I take to light my Shabbat candles every week, are some of the most focused and intense moments, and prayers, of my week.
B”H Good morning everyone! I am not a cakes person. In fact, I’m not a sweets person at all. I make tons of desserts, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that I don’t eat them. Now, give me a bar of dark chocolate and then you’ll see me eat! In fact, I usually carry a bar of dark chocolate inside my purse. Yes, it’s true. Ask my kids. Ask my
B”H I have a thing for flowers. I try to always have some in my home, even if it’s something small. When I was fresh out of college and living in NYC, I would gift myself flowers every Friday on my way back from work (in honor of Shabbat?). I don’t think honoring Shabbat was necessarily my intention, but hey now it is! ;-) And just like before, I get to

B”H As we all now realize the High Holidays are approaching. Thus, I wanted to share with you one of my most coveted recipes and one that I usually serve during these super hot summer Shabbatot (105 degrees last Shabbat!!!) and during Sukkot lunch (as Sukkkot time is usually still quite hot in Houston!). This Cold Meat recipe will be a beautiful and delicious addition to any Shabbat or Yom Tov lunch
B”H If you have DIY’ed in your lifetime, you know that part of the beauty of DIYing (has that already been accepted as an official word?) is that usually there’s very little to loose and very much to gain- if not in great results, then in gained experience, patience, perseverance, creativity, courage, humility… (sounds like parenting, right?) Now, when a DIY is a success…oh that feeling! Today I’m showing you my
B”H Disculpen que no lo traducí al español, pero hay veces que ciertas cosas sólo se pueden expresar en un idioma. Acá les va…As I happily prepared chocolate covered cake pops for my daughter’s seventh birthday party, the tragic news of the day melted away my mood. Cake pop in one hand, phone with Facebook News Feed buzzing in the other… The pain, the suffering, the unanswered questions…again, with those
