In the insane summer heat in Long Island, I pretty much drink everything ice-cold. But watered down drinks are a pet peeve of mine so I’ve been having some fun with the solution to that problem. By making my own flavored ice cubes, I have control over the flavors that keep my drinks cool and my kids love helping fill the ice cube trays with their favorite fruits and drinks! Here are my 6 favorite ice cube flavors but the options are endless! You can even make savory and spicy ice cubes for whiskey and tomato juice.

The Best Picnic Food Ideas

Every time I see people with a picnic food I am jealous.  I think wow, they came prepared.  As kosher consumers we often find ourselves in places where we need to be prepared and over time we realize that granola bars and chips won’t cut it.  Especially when you have kids it is important to pack real food for an outing and there is no reason everyone else eating their pizza and hot dogs at the park shouldn’t be jealous of you and your picnic.

Whether you just pick up some fancy wine and cheese with a baguette or take out some sushi from a local store or you prepare your own salads, sandwiches, snacks and more, take pride in your picnic.  Get a nice bag or basket, bring nice paper goods and make sure to have lots of napkins or even better wipes.  Head out on a nice Sunday with a ball and frisbee and have a great time not worrying about what you will eat.
