Pear Ginger & Oat Smoothie

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

I’m always so inspired when I see people posting pics of their green detox smoothies and drinks. It makes me want to go out and buy a juicer. Today, my sister in law took me to an amazing smoothie bar on the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk. They make a mixture called Thank God Juice which includes a combination of spinach, kale, collard greens, parsley, celery, fennel and romaine. You can add Thank G-d juice to any other juice flavors, or drink it straight-up. I’m the type that needs to hide the greens in my smoothies so I added apple, beet and carrot juice.

Since I don’t yet have a juicer, blended smoothies are all I can make – but they can be just as healthy and delicious! I love adding oats to my smoothies – they turn a fruity drink into an all out breakfast. Ginger adds great flavor and brightness, not to mention various health benefits.

What are some of your favorite juice or smoothie combinations? Share it with me in the comments below!

Gingerbread Cupcakes with
Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve probably already drooled over these gorgeous gingerbread cupcakes. I made them during the fast of Tisha B’av, so I wasn’t about to photograph them, but I did talk about them, a LOT. The next day, I had just 3 cupcakes left, so I decided to do what any foodie/blogger would – share! It was hard not to gobble down the last of them before getting a good shot, they’re just THAT good.

Besides being incredibly moist, these gingerbread cupcakes are chock-full of warm autumn spices. I didn’t think my kids would go for the flavors of ginger and nutmeg, but I was SO wrong – they could not get enough. Not only that, my little cream-cheese-haters were licking the frosting off their fingers! I think I’m going to start whipping up sweet cream cheese concoctions and call them “frosting sandwiches.” It will make lunch a whole lot easier for me!

Happy Shavuos from My Garden to Yours! :)

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Ok so I don’t exactly have a garden. It was just a play on Paula Deen’s “from my kitchen to yours” :)

But my house does kinda feel like a garden on this hot spring day, with multiple bouquets to go around. Check out this absolutely gorgeous one, I just had to share it with you! The bright pink gingers with the orange birds of paradise, and some green eucalyptus mixed in – it has to be my all time favorite bunch.

Wishing all BIB followers a Guten Yom Tov and may we all merit to receive the Torah anew with joy and inner meaning!

Shabbos Flowers

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Hi Busy in Brooklyn Blog Followers (now that’s a mouthful!)! Being Erev Shabbos, there’s not much time to post a recipe today. But I would like to post these beautiful flowers that my husband bought me for Shabbos. Although I love flowers and how they brighten up my table, I always tell my husband not to buy them every week. I’d rather get a really nice bouquet every once in a while. It just feels more special that way. This week, he went to our neighborhood flower shop, Mimulo, seeking a tropical looking bunch. I tend to love exotic looking flowers like birds of paradise, heliconias, and gingers. I also appreciate the elegant calla lily, a bunch of hydrangeas, and you can never go wrong with a bunch of red roses. Throw in some eucalyptus, and that just does it for me. I love the smell, and they come in a beautiful assortment of colors! But back to this weeks bunch, check out the beautiful anthuriums (the heart shaped ones)! Wishing a Good Shabbos to all!
