Another Pickling Adventure

I have done some experimenting with pickling before, even though I  am always intimidated by pickling. At least when you cook or bake, you know the result right away! With pickling you have to be patient and wait. And what if it doesn’t work out?! So far, my pickling amounted to some marinated lemon and…

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberry Butter

It’s time to celebrate!

So, we all managed to survive Yom Kippur. Hopefully, it was a meaningful day for you. It’s not an easy one for me – fasting, standing all the time. This year I didn’t feel too well, so I had to sit a lot, where others stood – not such a comfortable feeling. Well, now that…
