Thanks{giving} and Excuses.

Excuses. We all have them. I’m not trying to offer one. Instead, I’m jumping back on the blogging bandwagon head first!

This week, my dear friend Melinda, from Kitchen-Tested  and I organized the first Kosher Food Bloggers Conference in NY. What an event! The vibe of the bloggers, the excitement of the sponsors, the gorgeous location The Carlton Hotel was incredible and inspiring! 

More pics and a video to come, promise!

I think someone forgot to tell me how soon Thanksgiving was. This week? WHAT!?!? As an an ex-pat to the States (I’m originally from Australia) Thanksgiving is a national holiday that I LOVE! yes, LOVE! The food! The colors! The smells! Sitting around a large table with your nearest and dearest eating great food, a few drinks and hopefully no men watching football in the living room!

It always cracks me up how the population goes ca-razy! The internet goes wild with questions like “How do I cook for a party of 8?” (Um, 8? pppft!) “How do I reheat all the side dishes?” “Can I bring tupperware to take home leftovers?” “How may desserts should I serve?”

I’ve been scouring the internet (and our Pinterest boards) for a roundup of best-of-the-web for you!
