DESIGN INSPIRATION: A ‘BOLD RAINBOW’ KIDS BEDROOM

I’ve recently been asked by a few moms to help with inspiration for a rainbow room for boys in preschool/early elementary school. Since kids change their minds often, I like to keep my entire design (including all furniture and accessories to under $2000/room. Obviously, if you keep existing pieces and work around them, you can […]

MY TOP 5 SUBSCRIPTION BOXES FOR KIDS

I’m big on experiences, especially with kids – going to hands-on museums, the childrens’ theatre, farms, anywhere they can learn through touch and play, and engage all their senses. I really miss taking the kids to these various places (pandemic and all) and was eager to fill this void and keep us busy at home.  Here […]

A Corner of My Home – KIDS BATHROOM

  I love how bright, airy, and calm our kids’ bathroom is. The double vanity and mirror were there when we moved in. The color palette is cool, with muted shades of green and grey (the quartz counter is white dusted with light grey. Since we are such huge fans of bath bombs and use […]

A Corner of My Home – A Master Sitting Area

  Moving in the midst of the pandemic translated to holding off on in-person furniture shopping for a bit longer. We chose to split up our beloved Linge Roset sectional that used to be in our old living room, and use one section in a cozy sitting area in our master bedroom. The inspiration for […]

Instant Pot Teriyaki Meatballs

These teriyaki meatballs are known in our home as “mommy’s meatballs”. The kids ask for them at least once a week, and ALWAYS ask for seconds (if not more). I love them because I have all the ingredients readily at home (including the 1.5lbs multi-packs of ground turkey from Costco).  You can easily substitute the […]

Instant Pot Oatmeal (& Leftover Oatmeal Muffins)

My kids love oatmeal. We all know we don’t have the time to stand in front of the stovetop for 30min in the morning to pull it off. Turns out, my kids love my simple-and-quick Instant Pot oatmeal. Start the pot going, and by the time you’re done wrangling everyone to the kitchen table, it’s ready to be served! .. and if you’re stuck with leftovers – I discovered this great recipe for leftover oatmeal muffins! Yum!

It’s National Pancake Day!

In case you missed the memo, today, February 16th, is National Pancake Day. Turns out it’s a holy day for my kids. I’m assuming yours too. And considering this past year we’ve all been through, our household has decided to celebrate AS MANY holidays and events as we possibly can (Our Every Day is a […]

Cooking with Kids: Israeli Chocolate Cookie Truffles (Recipe)

Making these Ka’dorei Shokolad (‘chocolate truffles’ in Hebrew) is one of my fondest childhood memories from growing up in Israel in the 80s. Anyone that grew up in the 70s/80s/90s in Israel probably has similar memories as well (Maybe the equivalent of making s’mores in the US?). The original cookbook and recipe were published in […]

CHEERS to 2021!

Finally! 2021 couldn’t get here fast enough. Not that anything has changed, but it’s another reason to celebrate, and one of my resolutions for 2021 is to continue being intentional and finding ways to celebrate big and small moments as a family, and keeping this tradition alive even when life shifts into a “new normal” […]
