I had no donuts tonight but I want one now. Sugared jelly (not powdered sugar). Yum.
I’m Jewish but I like some Greek foods…is that a crisis?
Can we get emails telling us why our comments got deleted or will that be too time consuming? Half my posts are in Cyber Heaven or Hell and I get confused by the things you guys choose to post or not post.
Bais Yaakiv Maidel, How can you be too cool for rollerblading? (confused) When I was in the fifth grade, rollerblades were a novelty. I got mine at the end of eighth, (about 1994). It was considered “cool” back in the day. 😉
There is no set “Sephardic Cholent” or Hamin as each family and each Eda makes something different. Many times we don’t even eat a cholent type food on Shabbat day and we eat roast beef, rice, veggies…heated up or just (hot) mazza such as lahmagine, kibbeh, cigars and salads…You can Sepahrdify your cholent by adding lima beans and chick peas to it and lots of cumin-that mellows out very nicely and gives a nice flavor, in addtion to chilli powder. Add cayene pepper too for a spicy cholent. You can also make Hamin out of meat, potatoes and lots of fresh onions and garlic (we’re not that big on garlic and onion powders) with salt, pepper, cumin and cayenne pepper to make it hot. It’s similar to cholent but no beans. Some people make that meat and potatoe recipe with barley and no beans. My grandother adds rice into a bag and throws it in the hamin to get cooked. Basically, just play around with spices.
On a side note, I wouldn’t brown meat in oil since it has so much fat in it already, I don’t like to add oil to meat.
woops, sorry just smile, didn’t see your until I posted…
Lot’s 2 sons that he had with his 2 daughters: Amon and Moav
I buy them online. The internet is the best and the worst thing to have been invented.
Almost the big 3-0. yikes!
OK!!! WE GET THE POINT! …it wasn’t me…
Reading through this thread, my head is spinning.
Short skirt, no good. Long skirt, no good.(confusing)
Slit, no good. (but what if skirt is too tight to walk in?)
Cap sleeves with shirt worn under, no good. (that one truly baffles me)
Slingback shoes, no good. (?)
…did I miss anything…
Will Hill, I’d think YW Editor would be a woman.
I do get a lot of laughs from reading comments here. I think spell-check is needed here.
Who is this dinner for? Is it a dinner party or a party of two?
Assuming it’s a dinner for two, I’d make:
salad, ribsteak, mashed potatoes, string beans with garlic and a nice bottle of cabernet merlot, chocolate cake for dessert
salmon, rice, grilled vegetables and a bottle of chardonnay, chocolate fondue for dessert
a yummy pasta dish with vegetables and parmigan and your favorite bottle of red, chocolate pudding pie for dessert…
Always have your food presented nicely, a nice bottle of wine and dessert.
If it’s a dinner party, I’d add bread and dips, appetizers and possibly soup.
Because that is what I am…
Yeah… Lots of em…

I’m tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin deep. That’s deep enough. What do you want, an adorable pancreas?
Forgiveness is giving up the possibility of a better past.
There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.
Whoever says money can’t buy you happiness obviously doesn’t know where to shop.
Hmmm…Why won’t my recipes get posted. They’re kosher…alright, your loss.
Thank you to all you veterans and to all the brave men and women who are serving our country today, too.
Belated Happy Veteran’s Day…
Ahhh! My favorite topic…shoes! Go to Piperlime.com. They have fabulous shoes.
I shoe shop everywhere I go. I need a bigger closet now…
Feivel, I got some hot red shoes. Is that a dirty word here?
Peanut Butter Rice Krispies treats are really easy to make and everybody loves them. They’re not fancy at all though, so it depends on the affair you’ll be making them for…
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup (lite) Karo syrup
1.5 cups peanut butter
1 cup sugar
Melt the Karo syrup, peanut butter and sugar together on a low flame in a large pot, mixing it to get a smooth consistency.
Add the Rice Krispies. Mix it and flatten it into a 9×13 pan. (I use wax paper to help me flatten the mix.)
Refrigerate to cool and cut into squares.
Thanks, Baker. I will try it.
Very funny, Feivel! 🙂
Devora K: Don’t waste your Starbucks time watching what other people are doing. I go to Starubcks too (though I rarely ever have time to sit there) and I know for sure that certain products there have a Kosher sign on them. The packaged products, maybe not served at every Starbucks but they definitely are OUD or OKD. Also, I just don’t get it, why does it bother you what they wear and how do you know what topics they converse about?
This place is insane. Really.
I would just say the standard “refuah shelema –or– hatzlacha (lemetziat zivug hagun?) le_____ ben/bat _____”.
I’ll take over, Editor. I wouldn’t mind taking a tour of the cyberspace the deleted comments get shipped off to.
Heck, yeah. Now all you lazies go out and vote.
smartcookie: I’d rather leave a bit to the imagination. 😉
On a different note… Is somebody having a multiple identity crisis?
GILA: I don’t mean to make anybody feel bad and I’m sorry if I did, but that is not a healthy size for a woman of that height. True, some people carry larger sizes better than others but for health reasons, I think women should try to maintain a healthier weight. Telling them it’s okay to be that size is helping them be in denial.
tzipi: 5’4″ and size 12 is VERY overweight unless she has a huge build.
Where’s everybody emigrating to? What makes you think life will be better there?
Color definitely affects your mood. Color talks to you. That said, I do wear red be it stilettos or dresses or lipstick. It talks to me and makes me feel good. If a guy finds that attractive that’s his problem.
I hope you’re not going around assuming yourself a “kanai”… Leave judgement and retribution to God.
So true…which is why I use money instead of chickens. The money goes to charity and I’m not contributing to chicken abuse.
You seem really frustrated with this situation. Sorry about that.
There are men who prefer heavier women but in today’s society being thin is associated with being healthy and that is generally considered more attractive.
Please don’t assume that all thin girls are emaciated or starving themselves. That’s just as rude as telling a heavy girl that she’s overeating.
I think that girls struggling with their weight should date guys that don’t necessarily want a thin girl because attraction in a marriage is so important. I would never want to be with a guy who’s not physically attracted to me and I hope you (or whomever you’re writing about) would not want to either. Looks are just as important as personality or anything else when in a relationship. Anybody who says it’s not is lying to themselves and their partner.
Give Me a Break
I believe the Korban Pesach is meat.
I love steak and my leather shoes and jackets. Sorry, I can’t part with them.
I’m not a runner but a rollerblader. If anybody wants to form an inline skating club, I’m in. 😉
No touching kids. Period.
While on this topic, I’ve often wondered why these (mentioned above) men’s women dress in mostly black clothes, socks and shoes. Is black a more Jewish color than say blue or red or yellow or grey? Or is it just easier to just wear black every day?
Oh my god, I love that crunchy topping. Yum!
Don’t eat like a pig. (Not talking to you specifically, Yoshi. Just in general.)
No offense but I doubt any of them will ever look GQ and there’s no need for them to anyways.
Fashionably dressed, yes they should be. Their clothes and shoes should be of this decade at least – although retro’s good and fashion repeats itself with a modern twist…
I think Yeshiva guys should always look clean and presentable since they are obvious representatives of Jewish people in the streets.
Do we get a fashion and beauty section too or is that a no-no here?
Marinate sliced chicken breasts in olive oil, fresh minced garlic, black pepper, parsley, rosemary, thyme and sage. Grill.
I thought it was “Shema Yisrael HaShem Elokenu HaShem Echad”.
-Lemon Steak: Marinate boneless ribsteaks in lemon juice, minced fresh garlic, cumin and black pepper. Grill basting with extra marinade.
You can do the same with some honey barbeque sauce if you prefer.
-Grilled Veggies: Slice zucchini, red, orange, green and/or yellow peppers, yellow squash, eggplant, portobella mushrooms…Make sure not to cut them up too small so they won’t fall through into the fire. Marinate them in olive oil, fresh minced garlic, and any spices you like. Grill.
-Easy Hamburgers: Using chopped meat, mix the meat with any barbeque sauce you like and make patties. Use about a quarter cup barbeque sauce per one pound of meat. You can also add chopped onions into the mixture. Don’t make the patties too small as they shrink from the heat. Grill.
-If you eat hotdogs, always slice through them before grilling.
-You can prep your grill by greasing it with (olive) oil. Slice an onion in half and stab it with a barbeque fork. Dip it into olive oil and grease your grill with it. Make sure your grill is heated up very well before you put food on it.

‘Twas the summer of 96…..it was reality, not a dream. 😉
I was there for a bit.
I truly believe that most of what I do, I do with my heart, not to pretend. Then again, a chassid from Boro Park might not consider me as religious as him/her… maybe some things should be done for the mitzva and not for the competition to be holier than thou…..you might feel more sincere in your observance that way…..???
Maybe you are right, maybe you are wrong. God knows our true intentions. Besides, I remember learning the phrase “MITOCH SHELO LISHMAH, BA LISHMAH” …so either way I think it’s a good thing.
i always wonder y sum ppl like 2 type like this it make me sic. besides i think it take longr 2 typ this way u hav 2 think more 2 do this.
Did I just do that?
