Last week the winning word for the 86th Scripps National Spelling Bee  was Knaidel.  Ironically, the Indian-American winner who lives in New York, has never even had a knaidel, otherwise known as matzo ball.   Now everyone is searching the internet to find out what this Yiddish word means and probably heading over their local Jewish deli to try one out.

Of course we all know and love knaidel some of us enjoy them weekly in our chicken soup and with all the knaidel talk abound I thought I would share a few of our favorite recipes.

Did you hear the news? Mike & Ike are back together and I got to go to their reunion party!!!

I remember the day my 8 year old noticed the scratched out Mike on the package of Mike & Ikes and then at some point the scratched out Ike, we followed the story from the sidelines, wondering what was going on with our favorite chewy candies (that I allow and even enjoy in moderation).  Now with the premiere of their movie trailer, The Return of Mike and Ike, the candy duo is reunited and better than ever.

It was so amazing to see all of you yesterday at #FairwayMarket in Paramus.  I can not believe what a turnout we had.  You came from Teaneck and Passaic and New City and Philly – my hometown!  Our youngest attendee was 7, we had lots of teens who love to cook and then some great grandmas and grandpas in the crowd.

The third annual vegetarian food festival will be hosted this weekend in NYC.  This festival features a whole range of vegetarian food companies,  restaurants, and health and wellness vendors including some that are kosher certified.  Even if you don’t go for the food, you will want to go for the entertainment.  There will be three stages at the event, one for speakers talking about a variety of topics, one for amazing food demos and one for kids.

You don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy this festival.  If you simply want to find out more about living a healthy, sustainable lifestyle, you should attend.  It has never been a better time to see for yourself what the vegetarian buzz is about.  There is still time to get your VIP ticket, which gets you express entry into the festival (you avoid the long general admission lines we’ve had in the past and are guaranteed admission) plus 5 raffle tickets per day pass. The raffle benefits For The Animals Sanctuary.  Click here to get your tickets.  \

Monday night Jamie and I had the pleasure of experiencing a lot of kosher food and wine. We also got to meet so many of our online friends, it’s wonderful to see so many of you in person. This was the 7th Annual Kosher Food and Wine Experience hosted by Royal Wine Corporation at Pier 60 in New York City. This event offers the opportunity to taste over 200 wines and sample foods from over 25 restaurants and caterers.

I started the day early so I could get some pictures during the daytime light and sample some of my favorite wines before the crowds. Here were a few of my favorites for you to consider for an upcoming special occasion, Purim or Passover.
