Frozen + Passover = Chozen

by Michal Levison on April 9, 2014

I think I may have mentioned that this household is OBSESSED with the movie Frozen. We listen to the soundtrack at least once a day, and the movie gets a good 5-6 runs per week. We have even renamed our daughters Belsa and Annya.

We are now in the midst of preparation for Passover. We have begun the process of evicting Chametz (anything made from wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt, or their derivatives, which has leavened or risen) from the house. Unfortunately, we’ve been trying to eat it all up instead of throwing it away. Ugh, the carbs…We are also getting ready for the seder we are hosting on Monday. Bella Belsa has made place cards, I’ve begun the cooking and my parents arrived from Israel last night. We are all very excited for the holiday.

Anyway, this morning, I found an amazing music video. The a capella group Six13 has put together a medley about Passover set to “Let It Go” and “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” that will surely put a smile on your face.

HAPPY Hump Day

March 26, 2014

It’s Wednesday! It’s Hump Day! Halfway through the work week…Yeehaw! Last night, the girls and I had a dance party. We blasted some tunes and got our groove on right before bathtime. It was so much fun – full of giggles, silly dance moves and jumping. Mind you, this is not always how things go […]

Greatest Brownies Ever, and they’re Gluten Free!

March 6, 2014

I don’t love chocolate. Stop throwing tomatoes at me! Sorry, I don’t share in the passion/addiction of most human beings out there (my daughters included). One bite of chocolate is more than enough for me. I think I’ve said it too many times, but my weakness is sugar, plain and simple. I don’t need chocolate, […]

Best Falafel Recipe in the World

February 4, 2014

I know that’s a bold statement to make, but I really do think that the falafels I made for our Super Bowl party were exceptional. Everything about them screamed, “YUM!” Now, you have to understand that as an Israeli, I have been exposed to an inordinate quantity of falafels. I’ve had the good, the amazing, […]

What’s the Best Way to Start the New Year?

January 2, 2014

Happy New Year!!! Hope you all had a wonderful celebration of closing out 2013 and ushering in 2014. We certainly did! We started off the evening with the girls, popping champagne poppers and lighting sparklers. Then, we left our darlings in the care of a wonderful babysitter (I booked her 2 months ago!!!) and headed […]

Death by Exhaustion

December 19, 2013

The last 6 weeks have been a doozy and a half in which my children decided that I didn’t need to sleep. I guess they figured that I’m old and I can sleep when I’m dead… It all started when we took an incredible trip to Israel. It really was amazing – we spent time […]

It’s the snowpocalypse! Ok, it’s really not that bad, but it has been snowing like crazy since 6am. We have a ton of food and two kids to keep occupied. What’s better than cooking up a storm? Well, there IS something better – eating the results! I had a purple day at the market yesterday: […]

Happy Thanksgiving and Hanukkah!

What a special day today is – a double holiday for some of us. We celebrate the festival of lights as give thanks for all that we have. There is so much for me to be thankful for, especially this year. We are fortunate to not only have a roof above our heads, but a […]
