Father’s Day Dinner

Father’s Day is upon us!  I always have to put a little extra thought into my Father’s Day celebrations – they can’t be as feminine or even as stylized as I would typically do for a party, because the men in my life would tell me “it’s overdone!”  So a casual family dinner is [...]

Passover Dinner: A Seder to Savor

The Seder dinner marks the start of the Jewish holiday, Passover.  Typically held at home, Seder dinners are full of tradition….and some delicious food!  Set a warm, yet elegant table in shades of gold and simple white centerpieces.  Add a personal touch by placing a votive candle with your guest’s names written [...]
