Happy Purim & Happy St. Patrick's Day!

A Chocolate Purim

Chocolate is good any time of year, and that's why chocolate fills my mishloach manot, the treats sent to friends and family at Purim, one of the happiest holidays on the Jewish calendar.  


My basket is filled with chocolate, and the best hamantaschen I have ever tasted—Triple Chocolate Hamataschen. A soft chocolate cookie dough, creamy nutella in the middle, and a beautiful drizzle of white chocolate on top. Better make some extra-they are that good!

A St. Patrick's Day Foodie Lit

"It is told: across the Irish Sea on the isles of Ireland centuries ago, the hooded Druids danced around the fires before they meted out justice for heinous crime until the Romans invaded the British Isle."


Mary Ellen Gavin brings alive the warmth and the cruelty encountered by the Irish in Depression New York and WWII years in Dublin.  Seen through the eyes of Francis, an orphan who becomes a leader of his adopted family.
