Holiday Treats

[lightbox color=”#000000″ type=”image” title=”” link=””][/lightbox]When I was young Christmas in my house was a big excuse for throwing a great party during which my mother’s creative baking skills took center stage.  Her cookies, which were a huge holiday tradition, became legendary as the years evolved.  Baked from an assortment of recipes collected from a bevy of sources, their reputation soon enabled them to be referred to, simply as “Libby’s cookies”.  As a teenager, growing up in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood, my home became a magnet as this holiday approached.  My mother’s marathon baking spree, which commenced in early November, was a seductive process.    My friends and I would pilfer the freezer where my mom stored her stock of delicious delights in large tins building an inventory of notorious treats.  This went on until she installed a lock claiming we were sabotaging her assortment of goodies designated for holiday gifts.  … ...Read more

The Gift

[lightbox color=”#000000″ type=”image” title=”” link=””][/lightbox]It’s November 26th, the day after Thanksgiving, the start of the holiday season and my 30th wedding anniversary.  It’s a big gift giving time of year, but somehow, the whole process has become a chore.  Time has erased the need to own “things”.  Experience has taught me that a true gift is a rare luxury; a combination of thought, pleasure and emotion.  A great gift is not only a joy to receive but a delight to give.  It is the birth of a beautiful memory.  On our first anniversary, my husband gave me a dozen red roses plus one white bud.  In his note, he said that he hoped that the white roses would one day outnumber the red.  For each celebration after that, I received another crimson bouquet plus an increment of white blooms for each year of our marriage.  This … ...Read more

Test of Time

[lightbox color=”#000000″ type=”image” title=”” link=””][/lightbox]It is Thanksgiving this week in the United States.  We will celebrate a tradition that commemorates the spirit of survival and congeniality demonstrated by the Pilgrims and the Native Americans at the first Thanksgiving.  The pilgrims  had an invincible work ethic and their perseverance helped to perpetuate the first immigrant settlements in our country.  This holiday is a celebration of family and the appreciation for a quality of life that our country has tried to preserve.   Even though this may not be the best of economic times in America, by examining our history, we can understand a broader picture and acknowledge what we have.   History is a valuable teacher, laying bare precedents set by past experiences and giving us the opportunity to use these lessons to improve the future.  It allows us to hone our skills and accrue knowledge.  Quality is the result of patience, … ...Read more
