WonderMix Heavy Duty Mixer Review

I compared the WonderMix function to function against the Kitchen Aid stand mixer, Bosch Universal, Ankarsrum Kitchen Assistent, and in all the tests, the WonderMix performed much better than the KitchenAid and Ankersrum and matched the Bosch in some functions and outperformed the Bosch in others.

My Eggless Whole Wheat Challah Using Aquafaba

  Challah was a staple in my home growing up and was on the Shabbat table every Friday night alongside the candles. The Challah was white bread, light, fluffy and ever-so-slightly sweet. Challah was and still is my favorite bread. It was the one I learned to make and the one I still make regularly […]

Diligent Shopping December Day One

It’s December! Halleluyah! A new month filled with hope possibilities, holidays, faith, family, food and fun! We just finished No-Shopping November, where we did not shop at ALL (except for a turkey) and ate completely from food storage. You can read all the posts here, last posts are listed at the top. I have the […]

No-Shopping November Day Thirty

Here we are, Day Thirty. At the beginning, this No-Shopping November seemed a daunting task and a long one.Ā Happily, it turned out to be neither. Yes, there were some ups and downs, but for the most part the family handled it well, were supportive and appreciative and stuck by the rules (NO shopping!). They didn’t […]

No-Shopping November Day Twenty-Nine

Day Twenty-Nine! Can you believe it? I can’t. It’s gone by so fast! We’re still in the throes of Thanksgiving food and it looks like we’re going to eat it all, rather than canning it, which is fine with me šŸ™‚ Getting ready for son’s surgery, I have a lot to do, so enjoying the […]

No-Shopping November Day Twenty-Eight

The day after Thanksgiving is our Day Twenty-Eight. We have LOTS of leftovers and everyone wants to eat the leftovers. So, not much going on today, since yesterday was so busy. Today is chill-down day for all of us. I have turkey stock in the roaster, still gently cooking. I made our customary matzah balls […]

No-Shopping November Day Twenty-Seven

Day Twenty-Seven, Thanksgiving Day! A festive, homey, family-filled feast all from storage (except the turkey). We all enjoyed the meal and the fellowship and for the the first time in many, many years, I did not go overboard making food and we did not go overboard eating too much. It wasn’t about what we hadĀ this […]

No-Shopping November Day Twenty-Six

WOW! Day Twenty-Six and we’re still all alive, we didn’t starve and according to my hubby and kids, it’s not been bad at all, hardly noticeable. I consider this a success. However, being a realist, I understand that one month does not tell the whole story and since we used many items from storage, unless […]

No-Shopping November Day Twenty-Five

Here we are at Day Twenty-Five! This is amazing to me. Our son and I had some time together today andĀ IĀ asked him what he misses the most during the No-Shopping November, and to my surprise (and delight) he replied sincerely that he hasn’t missed anything. He said the meals were great and he didn’t feel […]

No-Shopping November Day Twenty-Four

We bought our turkey!! Day Twenty-Four. Walking through Earth Fare, down the aisles, back to the meat department, passing by all the gorgeous fresh, organic produce and foods we’d love to have… I had to fight temptation to stay with No-Shopping November. Seriously. At that moment, I didn’t care about the mortgage or utilities or […]
