Look at it from a different angle.

A month ago I was washing dishes at my kitchen sink when I realized my eyes were closed. The sun was directly in my pupils. The thing is- we have a huge tree that shades most of our garden most of the summer, but this year it was shedding its flowers and not yet blooming …

“Oh, it’s OK-It’s only date sugar!”

Every now and then, life presents me with a conflict of sorts. This time, it was my obvious overuse of date syrup. “So sugar is off limits- everybody knows it’s not good for you, so I’ll just top everything with date syrup- if it’s made from dates, and it says “no added sugar”- then I …

Minimalist vegan entertaining?

I already told you -about 90000000 times- what a stellar introvert I am. I love staying at home, don’t mind being alone, and to sum this up I get anxious when I need to entertain people at home. You might be asking yourself: “well then why should I listen to anything you have to say …

Don’t throw those brown paper bags!

So, last week our online supermarket groceries arrived, and I realized I got quite the amount of fruits and veggies. Not that there is such a thing as “too many fruits”, but – my kitchen is small, my fridge isn’t huge, and I have about 4 large bowls that can store all that produce- and …

My tips for stress-less mornings!

Such a pity I didn’t have those tips when I actually needed them– meaning while I was working+ juggling 3 kids +house maintenance. Sure- I always used the “to-do list” method- which is great, but with all due respect (and I do have …

The sourdough starter monster.

Yes. I am well aware that “carbs are the enemy!” and all that. (Not my enemies- I learned to pick my battles- I have 3 kids, and if there’s one thing you learn in life with children- at all ages – is to preserve your energy for the right war. And don’t you worry- it …

Making veggie soup? double it!

Everybody knows the best trick for getting something done, is, well, to simply get it done. Works 99.9% of the time. The thing is- many times getting off the couch -and starting to cook from scratch-is a 99.9% no-go. I mean- that’s how I felt before -now I’m retired+an introvert+I love eating + planning my …

There’s always an alternative way to go.

Look at this picture of the cow and her calf ( I mean- I don’t know for sure that it’s hers, maybe she’s a calf snatcher, but they seemed comfortable together and wow so cute -I just had to stop my run and take a picture for all of you. I knew it would be …

When life gives you a lemon-use it!

Some things are just perfect- Yes, I mean it. I know some of the times I may come across as a cynic, and yet. I believe everybody- even the cynics- know deep down in their hearts that perfection is out there, wandering about, waiting to be recognized, acknowledged, and welcomed. Perfection may not be unanimous …
