It’s All in the Details When It Comes to Interior Design

E-mail Print PDF
“The devil is in the details.” I’m sure that’s a phrase you all have heard many times. It applies to many aspects of our lives. Planning a vacation, a party and even more so, planning our homes. Homeowners often spend time and money creating an overall functional space in their homes, and forget that details give...

Bet You Didn’t Know That Hack

To keep your bananas fresher longer, cut a small piece of clear plastic wrap about the size of the palm of your hand, wrap it tightly on the top crown of the bananas and they will last 3–5 days longer.

If you want to clean a pan that got badly burned, you can use:

1 cup vinegar

2 tablespoons of baking soda

1 cup or so of water

Fill the bottom of the pan with a layer of water, add the vinegar, and then bring the pan to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add the baking soda. Empty the pan and scour as normal. If necessary, add more baking soda.

Kick It Up with Kishka

E-mail Print PDF
Mock Kishka can be eaten as a side dish or inside of a cholent. Years ago, kishka was made with intestines and other such things. Here are some variations on an old theme. In general, I make about 4–5 loaves, wrap in parchment paper, freeze, and then just pop into my cholent. This way I only have to deal with the mess one time and I have my stock of kishka ready for when I need it.

Kishka 1

1 carrot grated

1 onion grated

¾ cup oil

1 tsp salt

1 tsp paprika

1½ cups flour

Process all in a food processor. I like to roll up in parchment paper, freeze, and then add to my cholent right before candle lighting.

Kiskha 2

2 tsp paprika

1 Tbls sugar

¼ tsp pepper

½ cup oil

½ cup...

Repurpose on Purpose Part Two

Over the years, we all seem to collect a lot of prescription bottles. It’s really such a shame to throw them out, so I am sharing some ideas to repurpose them.

Prescription bottles work great for small cords and ear buds. And they’re easier to find in your purse too! If you like to floss on the run, you can...
