I’ve never cooked “Kosher”, but I’ll give some of these recipes a whirl!
It’ll be nice to expand my cooking horizons!
Strap on your apron, reinvent tradition, and fill your Jewish kitchen with global flavors.
The Modern Jewish Table is the new, essential kosher cookbook for every Jewish home, whether you are a reluctant cook or a dedicated balabusta. Bringing their fun, upbeat, and infectious brand of energy to the kitchen, self-proclaimed Jewish Princesses Tracey Fine and Georgie Tarn don their high heels and aprons to revamp the kosher kitchen and raise the culinary bar. It’s no longer just chopped liver, chicken soup, and matzo bread; instead, learn to make Mock Chopped Liver, Sephardi Saffron Chicken Soup, and Princess Pitta Bread!
Writing from the point of view of the average home cook, the Jewish Princesses dish out their witty know-how and inspire amateur cooks to create simple and hip recipes, with all the short cuts included, even as they entice “professional” home cooks to revitalize traditional Jewish fare with uniquely global flavors. Learn to make delightful pareve desserts and meals fit for a Passover feast, as well as:
• Street Food Gefilte Fish Bites
• Crème Fraiche Vegetable Latkes
• Cohen-Tucky Baked Chicken
• Princess Pad Thai
• Kunafa Middle Eastern Cheese Cake
• Cuban Sweet Corn Soufflé, and more!
Complete with stunning photography, outrageous tips, and a dash of chutzpah, The Modern Jewish Table introduces innovative dishes that will soon become Jewish traditions for the future.
Dom is having a pretty rough way to go during this treatment. Actually, Thalidomide was like a walk in the park compared to Velcade, Revlimid and Dex.
His blood pressure is all over the place. He’s been on blood pressure medication for many years. Our family doctor took him off of it while he’s going through this.
A typical morning:
Gets out of bed at 8 am. While watching television, sitting on the couch, his blood pressure is 130/80. GREAT.
Gets hungry. Walks with his cane 20 feet into the kitchen. Grabs a bite to eat, then hobbles back to the couch. Starts feeling woozy. Blood pressure has dropped to 60/something.
An hour later, blood pressure returns to normal.
He cannot function with these fluctuations. He’s also getting flashes of color in his peripheral vision from time to time.
I’m doing all of the driving. We’re both very tired. Drive into Bogalusa, LA every Monday for lab work. Velcade injections in Slidell on Tuesdays and Fridays. Drive into NOLA to see Dr. Safah at the Tulane Cancer Center every couple of months. Monthly infusion of Zometa. Here’s a look at this month:
So, we’re hanging in there and sure looking forward to finishing this treatment and get on with the transplant.
I received this great cookbook the other day from the publisher. It couldn’t have come at a better time- My brother is flying in from Ohio for a visit in a couple of weeks and we’ll be firing up the grill often! We’re really looking f…

About the Book:
With a prolific career in biotechnology, serving as CEO of two companies who worked in the treatment and diagnosis of cancer, Michael Becker knew and understood cancer. It was his job. So, when he was looking in the mirror at age 47 and saw a lump in his neck that wasn’t there the day before, he knew something was wrong. After several tests and agonizing waiting periods for results, his worst fears were confirmed – he was diagnosed with stage IV oropharyngeal (head and neck) cancer in December 2015. While initial treatment appeared successful, his cancer returned in December 2016 and he was given about a year to live.
What does someone do with a diagnosis like that? Everyone would react different. For Becker, he became determined to share his story of adversity and daily triumph, which is all chronicled in his new non-fiction autobiographical book, A Walk With Purpose: Memoir of a Bioentrepreneur. Part memoir, part fascinating look inside the biotechnology industry, A Walk With Purpose takes readers down his career path from an investment advisor to chief executive officer of an oncology-focused biotechnology company, to finally ending on the other end of the industry: a terminal cancer patient facing his own mortality. This fast-moving, fascinating and heart-wrenching memoir shows a personal account of all sides of the oncology biotech industry: from CEO to patient.
