Raising the Bar on Kosher Bubbly

The name Rothschild is a formidable and storied one, especially in the world of wine–even kosher wine.

Their Jewish roots enticed parts of the family to dabble in kosher wine

All Things Cranberry

So what’s the deal with Thanksgiving? Intimidated by planning a big meal for many people? Don’t we do this every single weekend?

Shlishkes, Shishkales or Gnocchi?

When I was growing up with a Hungarian mom, she used to make shishkales, which was a really special treat.
