Another bun in the oven?

by Michal Levison on September 15, 2016

I have some exciting news to share. Nope, I’m not pregnant, though it does feel like I just delivered a baby…

My first cookbook is published and available for download (ebook) and order (hardcover)!

Seasoned Moments | Rosh Hashana & Yom Kippur: Recipes for a Happy New Year boasts more than 40 approachable, seasonal and delicious recipes to impress your guests at the next holiday meal. You don’t need to be Jewish to enjoy this cookbook. This is a wonderful resource for the fall months, delicious dishes that work well for everyone in the family.

I have been out of touch, barely posting, hardly responding to comments and emails, working in a vortex…but now that it’s all done, I hope you will forgive my absence.

I am selling the book directly from the Seasoned Moments website (in all formats). Get your copy (as a hardcover, pdf, for iBooks or Kindle) today at:

You can get the ebook and hardcover versions from Amazon as well:

I need your help getting the word out. This is the first book to focus on the High Holiday meals and will come in handy this October. But, if you’re not Jewish, it’s ok! This book is of-the-season with great ideas and recipes for fall meals, from simple to ornate.

Please share the title with your friends. If you get it and like it, I hope you will leave a review on Amazon.

Thank you for all your support. This is a dream realized.

The Chocolate Cake for Everyone

March 20, 2016

More and more, I hear from friends that they have a food allergy or that their child does, which makes playdates, birthdays and dessert-time very challenging. The other day, we had a friend over. Her mother hadn’t mentioned any food sensitivities, but it got me thinking as I prepped dinner and a special treat. What […]

Opening Alert: American Cut Bar & Grill

February 19, 2016

It’s been a few years since we moved out of New York City and we are still discovering the New Jersey dining landscape. To say it doesn’t compare to NYC is hilarious, I mean who are we kidding??? In a one block radius, NYC beats the dining options of most states, if not countries! Needless […]

Holy cow! I mean, chicken…

February 17, 2016

Call me crazy, but I was afraid of roasting a whole chicken. I had different reasons not to try it – it is just as cheap to buy a roasted chicken at Fairway/Wholefoods/Other grocery store as an uncooked one; roasted chicken is dry; I was a scaredy cat. Everyone and their mother was roasting chickens around […]

An Asian Twist to an Old Classic for Chanukah

December 11, 2015

There has been a frying fiesta going on in my house. Chanukah celebrates the miracle of just a tiny bit of oil lasting for eight whole nights. It is only appropriate to give oil a central role in this holiday. Therefore, the two cardinal foods of Chanukah are latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (doughnuts). Don’t get […]

They watch the same episodes over and over, marveling at the ideas, the challenges and the presentation. On Sunday, my seven year old decided that she wanted to have a Cupcake War of her own. So, […]

Falatke: The New Holiday Tradition

November 6, 2015

I don’t know if I invented this or not, but I have never seen it nor heard of it, so I’m taking credit. It happened a few days ago as I was driving to meet a client. I had some quiet time in the car…I looked around me at the beauty of autumnal leaves turning […]

Apple of my (p)Eye

October 2, 2015

Yesterday, I spent the morning with my daughter’s Pre-K class (as well as the Kindergartners in her school). A few weeks ago, they had been read a book (How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman). Afterward, the teacher asked them if any of them had ever tried apple pie. […]

National Daughters’ Day

September 27, 2015

  Today was National Daughters’ Day in the US. I am lucky to have two wonderful girls who challenge me and make me laugh and whose incredible lives I am fortunate to share. Tonight, I happened to pick “Forever Young” as our bedtime story. We had just purchased the book yesterday. Little did I know […]
