On Day 19 my son played with matches

So yeah, I'm not going to talk about the fact that my house almost burned down today taking my little boy with it.  Sigh.  I'm very grateful and that's enough said about that.

Soba Noodles tossed with Tofu Sour Cream and Chopped Cilantro (Cusbara) and Basil

Same dish.
This is me feeling low about my lack of photography skills and trying to get art-y.

Sweet Potato-Squash Soup topped with some Corn & leftover Black Bean Chili

And last, but absolutely not least...

WooooHoooo!  This is me, in Israel, holding a bottle of Kombucha Tea!

Backstory:  For those who don't know what it is, Kombucha is a fermented tea that is absolutely phenomenal for your health.  I used to buy it by the case at Whole Foods in NY and I swear, I would not have made it through the stressful move across the globe without my daily bottle of kombucha!  Not only does it give me a sense of calm and clarity when I drink it, it settles the most stubborn gassy belly, has live probiotic cultures, and provides me with energy and vitality.

And until TODAY, I have not been able to find it in Israel.  (There is one guy who sells it on tap in Machane Yehuda in Jerusalem, but I do not care for his brew as it is VERY sour and vinegary).  This brew, (here I tasted Ginger flavor) - was light and refreshing and just delicately carbonated - everything you want your kombucha to be.  I am beyond happy and look forward to trying his other flavors, which include my fave: Pomegranate! 

Happy, happy, happy dance!


  1. Em, I was just commenting to Jenn the other day about how professional your website and your pictures look. I love your site. I anxiously look forward to your new blogs each day and am disappointed when I have to wait a day or two. I would love to see you post video demonstrations too. Too bad Jenn and I don't live close enough to come to your presentations or we would be there in a heartbeat!


  2. Thank you Christy! You and Jenn need to come to the Holy Land. That's all there is to it!


  3. I'm up for that! I even have a passport! :)
