    Hi Chanie
    Looking for a dessert demo next week in Monsey. Would you be interested? I love your blog!!!

    Good Evening Chanie, I cannot tell you how excited I am to have found your site, your blog, your wonderful recipes, everything !! I was born and raised in Brooklyn and miss it terribly. When I left, twenty seven years ago, almost none of the things you write about were available. Kosher food, of course, was available, but there were few restaurants, cooking schools, and certainly not social media. My husband was career military and when retired remained to work with the military. Long story short, would you please give me the names of some of the Kosher supermarkets and Passover stores that would ship Kosher foods to me in middle Georgia ? There are none here, and the closest ones, which are small and do not carry many items, are in Atlanta. They are difficult to get to and I would love to order on line and have items shipped. How I wish we still lived in Brooklyn !! Many thanks, Diane Schirmer

      Thanks Diane! What a trip from Brooklyn, huh? I’m honestly not sure which stores would deliver, but it’s always worth asking. Pomegranate – an amazing upscale kosher supermarket on Coney Island Avenue, has the most extensive kosher selection. It’s likely they would ship to you. Otherwise, you can get so many products on Amazon nowadays. What kind of products are you looking for?

    hi. would you know if the tofutti cream cheese mousse with white viennese crunch topping (pg 294 chic made simple cookbook by esther deutsch) could be frozen or how long it could last in the fridge?

    Hi Chanie-
    I love what you do here on your site and on Instagram. I’d love to send you samples of our Etrog and Besamim liqueurs to try. You might remember them from this year’s kosher food bloggers event. They are terrific, are great in cocktails, and work beautifully in recipes as well. I look forward to hearing from you!

  11. i just began selling pampered chef and haven’t quite gotten off the ground…I’m a foodie and cook and create recipes…and just turned on to your side….

  12. Jordanna says:
