The Singing Soup Bowl

Mar 18, 2011 by

Friday nights were for Grandma. The world agreed that Ida Marder was The Best, if not one of the best, cooks in the neighborhood .. which, as a little girl, was my world. Walking into Grandma’s house on Shabbat we were first greeted with the yeasty smell of freshly baked challah.  Is there nothing as wonderful as out of the oven homemade bread in any culture? Although the traditional, braided bread was the star of the pre show (yes, looking back it certainly was at least a three act play!) , sitting beside it was a small loaf baked just for my sister Susan and me. The first act .. er course .. always began with the sweetest chicken soup. Pieces of orange carrots and luchen/noodles floated in our  bowls. A perfect way to...

International Women’s Day: How Will You Thank Yourself?...

Mar 8, 2011 by

Today, women from all over the globe, will join in solidarity to celebrate International Women’s Day. Too often it is expected, from our families to our work colleagues to our friends, that we, as women, will put ourselves second. Funny thing is even our girlfriends often assume that as well. On March 8th, as we celebrate the women of the world, our Gf author, Sunny Cervantes, reminds us that we should celebrate ourselves as well. As Sunny put it, “Since it’s a day to honor women, why can’t we say thank you to ourselves?” Why not?! Some of our Girlfriends share a few ideas on what they will thank themselves for and how they will make themselves feel extra special on International Women’s Day .. and through out the year. For having the determination...

Keep Him…Then You Won’t Be Alone...

Feb 25, 2011 by

Max came into my life quite unexpectedly and my life changed. I didn’t know it at the time. How often do we not realize the little moments that ultimately impact our lives? I was enjoying a lazy Saturday when my friend Alf called to tell me that a rescued White West Highland Terrier had just been dropped off  ready to be adoped.  If I wanted the pooch I had to come over to his house right away. I really wasn’t looking for a dog.  I was traveling. I didn’t have a lot of time. But well .. I was curious and it’s difficult to say “no” to Alf so I drove to the other side of Atlanta  “just to check him out.” I wish I could tell you that I instantly fell in love...

Snow Storm Cranberry & Chocolate Cookies...

Feb 21, 2011 by

When I’m stressed I bake. When I’m bored I bake. One year I spent all summer making cheesecakes. It was an intense summer but my friends loved me. During the 2011 Atlanta Snow Storm it was cookies and wine time. Cranberry & Chocolate Cookies are one of my favs. I really like how the tartness of the cranberries play against  th the sweetness and richness of great chocolate. A few weeks ago I participated in a food tweet chat and won Scharffen Berger chocolate.  I am now a believer in using the very best ingredients you can afford .. especially when it comes to chocolate! Girlfriends, especially for you here is my … Snow Storm Cranberry & Chocolate Cookies Recipe Ingredients 1 cup butter – softened 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 2 eggs 1...

All You Need Is A Little Love

Feb 14, 2011 by

Launching All The Single Girlfriends on Valentine’s Day somehow seems appropriate and a bit ironic. Valentine Day’s love is so often equated with “romantic love.”  However, love takes many forms. I was curious to know “what love means” to our Girlfriend Authors. Here’s what they had to say about love .. “Love” – it has meant so many different things as I’ve changed. For example, pre-feminist movement, as a Baby Boomer, “love” meant romance that would involve a ring and marriage. When that happened, I knew that “love” didn’t really mean that for me. I ran from that whole enchilada. Now that I have finally connected the dots on who I am – I will collecting Social Security soon – “love” means the ability to understand and live with myself. Madonna sang about it...
