Welcome to Foodiscovery! :)

I LOVE food! I love to eat it. I love to cook it. It allows me to be creative and to do acts of kindness. It makes me and others happy. It is the most basic need of every creature and is one of the biggest pleasures in the world. But like almost anything, it must be handled well or it can cause problems. It can be used as a comfort, even when you’re not really hungry. Improper eating can cause sickness. Extra weight can lead to obesity, which can lead to diseases such as diabetes. Food is thus a neutral entity, and it is up to each of us to use it in good ways. I hope that readers will be able to learn from my blog to use food in good ways and to avoid using it in bad ways. I seek to inform and inspire as well as to entertain.
I welcome you, my fellow food lovers, to Foodiscovery – and invite you to join me on my journey.

Thank you, Maidel, for inviting me to post to your blog! :) So far, Foodiscovery has the following five posts:

Just a Banana?

Today's the day: I've gotta make three sales or this job isn't worth it for me. Why bother? Because you never know what can happen if you just keep trying! I'll go check out those big apartment buildings down the street....

Surprise On-the-Job Lunch

I'm loving my new job! It's my second day doing door-to-door sales for Culligan drinking water systems ( ) in my own territory -- I was training in other peoples' territories last week -- and while I haven't made any sales yet in Teaneck or elsewhere, I've sure learned a lot! The more "doors" (businesses such as stores, salons, or doctors' offices) I see, the more confident I become. I think I'll do just another block or two of Cedar Lane and then stop to eat my usual Luna nutrition bar ( ) and drink my Naked juice ( ) for lunch....

Our First "Date" Without the Baby

A new spark of romance kindles within me as my husband and I walk hand-in-hand around Inwood, the Manhattan neighborhood we call home. Strange as it is for us to be just a couple again for a bit, at the same time I feel free skipping along the sidewalk excitedly and joking with my Sweety-Pie....

Warm Your Belly

The howling winter wind bites at my face like an angry dog as I trudge through the icy white mounds on the ground. My whole body is frozen solid. Just one more block until I'm home, I tell myself. Finally I push open the door to my apartment building, and when I pass through the portal between the merciless open air and the secure shelter, my skin begins to thaw....

Our Quest Begins...

…at my late-childhood home in Cincinnati, Ohio.

December 2002.

I’m in 12th grade this year. Sometimes I can’t wait to get out of here, but now is one time I love being at home with my parents and five cats. The Jewish holiday Chanukah starts this evening. Festive music emanates from the living room as I dash up and down the basement stares to gather decorations that are stored there. While helping my parents put them up, I sing and dance joyously with the music. I search through drawers to find the dreidles, special spinning tops that are used for a game that is customarily played on Chanukah. I look forward to playing it again with my parents this year. Even the cats are excited, what with all the new toys for them that have appeared....
