    “Ahsei Licha Rav” – he may not appeal to everyone but he is certainly a source of support to many in the community and for that alone he has my respect.

    Turkey and stuffing latkes and carrot kugel and potato poppers and mashed potatoes and gravy on Friday night! Pumpkin-chocolate bread and sufganiyot for dessert – the best of both worlds

    of course you should eat things that contain flours and sugars. diets are not about cutting out whole food groups – it’s about MODERATION. there are many wonderful frum female and male nutritionists out there – they can help you with diet plans, with shabbos and yom tov meal plans, they may even work out a way to make latkes okay!

    fruits and veggies, all the way

    I’m jealous, Azoi.Is. I’m jealous of the free time and lack of worries in your life. Me, I don’t have time, energy, or willingness to notice the sartorial choices of 50 year old women, let alone start a thread in the YWN CR about them.

    in reply to: No Thanks for Your Mishloach Manos! #1009882

    Just smile and say thank you. It’s supposed to be Ish L’Reieihu -appreciate the gesture of friendship and say thanks. You don’t want to eat it, don’t – but don’t offend the giver.

    Is it fitting for this to even be a topic of conversation?

    in reply to: bina article on acne and letters to ed in response #886546

    I took accutane as a kid. My dermatologist DID NOT push it on me. I used it as a last resort, after years of using OTC and prescription-only (i.e. Retin-A) medications. My dermatologist sat me and my mom down and went through ALL of the known side effects and complications. I had to do regular blood tests, and refills were only given once the required blood work was completed and results received. The pills, when I took them, were in blister packs, and to pop out the pill you couldn’t miss the picture of the pregnant lady with a big X over the stomach – signifying that a pregnant woman SHOULD NOT take the medication. I took this medication years ago, before the internet was as widely used as it is now. Nowadays, there is no excuse for an uneducated consumer. I am sure that the dermatologists continue to warn about the side effects of the medication, but patients CAN check for themselves – either on the internet (chas v’chalilah, I know) or (and here’s a novel idea) by reading the PACKAGING that comes with the medication.
