🍪 Chocolate Chunk Cookies 
That now have to chill for 24-36 hours 🤯. Rah! I wish I was as thin as my patience is right now lol. 
Ain’t nobody got time to wait. 
Why is cookie dough better after it chills out for some time? I won’t go into the science details. Im all about the cliff notes 📝 in High school. 
1. It spreads less
2. Better flavor 
3. Prettier caramelized color 
4. Crispier edges 👋🏻 So now we wait. * looks at ⏰ clock * is it time * should we try one anyway. 
Recipe @zoebakes it’s on her blog. Google it. Xoxo 😘

💕 #CCTableSelfie Shabbos 💕from my table with love. 
Having somewhere to go is home. 
Having someone to love is family. 
Having both is a blessing. 
Thankful for my friends and family who have carried me and supported me when I needed them most. 
Thankful 🙏🏻 to ALL of you 🙌🏻, the thousands of heartwarming, loving and supportive messages. You have NO idea how they warmed my heart. When I say you guys are my Insta Family, you truly are 💕. You started with me 5 years ago, you laughed with me, you crunched with me, you grew with me, you supported me, you congratulated me, you empathized with me, you have been along this wild and wonderful media journey. 
Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️. I am I because all of you.

Fusilli Veal Bolognese. 
Bolognese sauce is a meat-based sauce originating from Bologna, Italy, hence the name.  Anyway let’s be real for a min. 
It’s Sloppy Joe and Noodles 😉. Or deconstructed 🍝 “Spaghetti”and Meatballs. However you choose to call it. 
Fancy pants or not. It’s the ultimate comfort food & it’s cheaper than therapy. *Said as I’m shoveling it in my mouth 👄🤤. And no. I’m #NotSorry. #youdoyou
I’m a carb lover, and I like food that’s a warm hug to my stomach. 
No shame 💁🏼‍♀️. This my friends is it. 
I used the 3 minute @ronzonipasta and this sloppy Joe that @mommalicht made. 
Its 2 LB chopped veal @thepomegranatemarket. First sauté one large onion in a deep frying pan, till translucent then crumble the meat and sauté till opaque stir often add oil as needed let water evaporate then add kosher salt and 1/4 cup ketchup diluted with a little water stir and coat well let simmer on low for 20 min voila thats all in a deep frying pan. Recipe written by my momma @mommalicht 
Boom 💥 comfort food. #food #eats #forkyeah #foodporn #pasta #bolognese #carbs #carbsarelife #thefeedfeed #foodandwine #influencer #kosher #gratefulheart
💕 #AttitudeOfGratitude means making a habit to express thankfulness and appreciation in all parts of your life, on a regular basis, for both the big and small things alike. 
It’s not happiness that brings gratitude, it’s gratitude that brings happiness. 
If you concentrate on what you have, you’ll always have more. 
What is AOG?
I write down in my daily planner 3 positive things that happened me, I’m thankful for, or actively acknowledge those who have helped me.
Why do this? 
I found i became better at recognizing and acknowledging the good in my life, which naturally helped me feel more grateful and thankful more often. 
Every day won't be perfect, trust me I know that, but focusing on what we are grateful for tends to wash away feelings of anger and negativity. 
I find you can’t be in both mindsets at one time. Your either grateful, or your in that bad head space of pity and negativity. ( Yes, we’ve all been there ) 
When I started this first ( embarrassingly, some days I would stare at my paper and think... gosh, what to write 🤦🏼‍♀️ ) but the more i thought about what to write later, the more ahah goodness grateful moments i had throughout day. 
Why do this?
Whether or not these attitudes come to you naturally, paying attention to life's positives can train you to see more and more of them, which will help you learn to be more grateful. 
You might feel blessed that good weather allowed you to get out for an afternoon run, that there’s fresh milk in the fridge, that a stranger lent a helping hand, that your favorite socks are washed, that you found the perfect parking spot, for coffee, that your bloodwork came back ok, that you made it to the bus on time, that you found $5 in your pocket, a fresh manicure, or that your kids offered to do the dishes. 
What are you Grateful for today ⬇️. 💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕

I was supposed to get married next week. 
A day I waited for many many many years. The whys and questions aren’t important. We lived, we learned and hashem put us in different directions. 
The wedding was perfectly planned. 
One can plan the most perfect party, if it’s not meant to be. It won’t be. We can make all the plans in the world, life never seems to follow the plans we THINK are the right plans. 
You can’t control the wind, but you can direct the sails. I woke up this morning with 2 choices. I can either let the day control me, or I can control the day. I can wallow in bed in self pity, or I can put on red lipstick and face the world ( that doesn’t mean the pain isn’t there ). Don’t let your circumstances define you. 
You don’t find a happy life, you MAKE a happy life. You work at it. Remember that time you thought you wouldn’t survive... but you did. And you can again. 
I’m sharing this in my time of pain to show you, as an influencer my life is far from perfect. It’s flawed. It’s pained. It’s heartbroken. That social media is more then meets your eyes. Please don’t forget that. 
Whatever you are struggling always make sure to have support. 
I had the most gorgeous wigs from @diniwigs. 
My gown, sophisticated & elegant from @haasbridal. 
The kids were dancing out of their skin in excitement with their adorable gowns from @tunzatulle. 
I had the wedding lineup of the century. 
@andrereichmannphotography his visions of photography and cinematography had me blown away. 
The music lineup @aaronteitelbaum + @yedidimchoir + @beriweber was going to be Ther perfect balance of class, orchestra and feel good vibes. Oh and the food... a culinary delight @cb_michaelschick ..has been with us at every wedding, top notch @thechefmw. I was even going to have an incredible Popcorn bar from my friends @popinsanitypopcorn. 
Every single account I tagged above I would use over and over and over again. A pleasure ever single step of the way. I tagged them to show them my love, support and appreciation for everything they have done 💗💓💗. #inspirationalquotes #life #quotes
🗣Social media can be a beautiful thing. 
Most things that are beautiful also come with pain. 
I was cyber bullied on a women’s  Facebook Group last week that’s about “women getting real” Someone sent me the screen shots written about me and let me tell you. They weren’t 👹 pretty. 
When you choose to go out there in real life or behind a screen to covet, slander & trash someone’s name. 
You can never ever take it back. 
Never. 
Once it’s out there it’s out there. 
Embarrassing someone in public is unforgivable. 
If following someone on social media triggers responses within you that don’t feel good click UNFOLLOW #Bye Look away. Know yourself. Don’t keep watching. If following someone makes you feel insignificant, insufficient, insecure, ungrateful of your life, jealous, hateful, or just not good feelz inside. Delete. 
If it hurts you to see them on vacation, having children, getting married, receiving a gift, being single, smiling, succeeding, or living their life AS THEY SHOW IT. 
UNFOLLOW. 
I choose to keep my page generally positive, loving, inspirational without negative rants. 
Ladies, Know that heartache and pain DOESN’T discriminate. 
I have my fair share. We all do. 
No one got off free in life. 
Instagram is edited real life. 
People only show you the highlights.
Instagram is NOT pay per view. 
You don’t pay to watch, it’s a FREE service you are willingly watching. 
Willingly. 
Your own free will. 
You are allowing your eyes see it and your heart feel it. 
If you don’t protect yourself who will ? 
If it triggers you. Let it go. 
You owe that you yourself. 
Delete the friend on FB, leave the group and unfollow on Instagram. Clean up your life so you feel better inside. Because only you, can take care of you. 
I’m human and I so badly wanted to share all those screen shots on my instagram. Bite back. But then I’m no better. The cycle of slander at one point has to stop. I took the high road, while not easy it was the right thing. NO it was NOT easy for me to do that. Taking the moral high road ain’t easy. 
Social media platforms are great for expressing ourselves and sharing, but you need to be careful what you take away from it. Xox ❤️
#CCTableSefie 💕💚 Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like, and enjoying it for everything that is is.

If you think it’s easy getting the perfect #Latka Selfie 🤳🏻... Go ahead 😉 try it. 
BUT I did perfect the perfect latka #BraggingRights. 
Crispy outside. Gooey inside, that’s how we like it around here. 
8- 9 Idaho Potatoes from the bag
4 Eggs
2 Tsp Kosher salt 
1/8 Tsp white pepper
2 TBS OIL
1/4 Cup Flour
1 TSP baking Powder 
Peel potatoes. Soak in cold water. Mix all the ingredients. Using Braun food processor and what they call the “kugel blade” idk the one with the round holes. Add to the egg mixture. And fry. Add carrot to oil ... it does this weird thing where it doesn’t let the oil get gross and black. Those are fancy cooking terms right there. Xoxo ( Do you think mom will let me jack her Braun... for my new house.. it’s the only one that makes good kugel ) #chanukah #f52grams #kosher #jewish #jewishgirl #food #influencer #foodandwine #forkyeah #eeeeeats #foodstagram #food52 #latkes

Beignets #CHAYNuka 
Pillowy. Powdery. Perfection. 
A perfect marriage of the 2 things I love most: All things fried, and all things foreign. Fried dough isn't easy to resist, so it makes sense that there's a variation of the doughnut in practically every region in the world. 💓🍩💓 Beignet (English pronunciation: /bɛnˈjeɪ/; French: [bɛɲɛ], literally bump), synonymous with the English
