What is your blog URL?
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am a freelance writer who writes anecdotally and honestly about the challenges of tweendom, food allergies, bathing suit phobias, dieting, wrinkles, and whatever other neurotic thing happens in the day of me, a writer, mother, wife and friend.

On a serious note, I write professionally about coping with food allergies/nutrition/recipes especially since my son was diagnosed with food allergies three years ago.
I have been blogging since...

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff...Not as Easy as it Sounds

Posted on January 17, 2014 at 10:00am 0 Comments

The adage Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff really isn’t as simple as it sounds.  Sure, I would love to let the non-sensical things roll off my back while shedding all the angst, contemplation and anxiety that goes along with it.  I agree that the heart on my sleeve deserves a day off, as it has been working overtime lately. Admittedly, I have been guilty of sweating the small stuff, the big stuff, and all the stuff in between. This past November was my daughter’s bat mitzvah. Those of…

Facebook Forgiveness…Yom Kippur in the Electronic Age

Posted on September 13, 2013 at 1:00pm 0 Comments

I thought about writing this in my Facebook status box this morning…To all those I have wronged, I’m sorry.  Then, I thought, how disingenuous and trite that sounded.   As a kid, I used to nervously think about Yom Kippur and all its implications. Of course, the YK liturgy usually compounded my anxiety with frightening descriptions of angels trembling, the book of life, who…


My Big Fat, Vegetarian, Food Allergy/Cholesterol Free and Low Sodium Rosh Hashanah

Posted on September 10, 2013 at 10:03am 0 Comments

The fact that Rosh Hashanah was so close to Labor day last week left me in a bit of a panic.  I'm not sure, but I think I heard my leather boots sniffling in the back of my closet, waiting to be called into high-holiday action. Yet, imagine their shock when I picked out something (gasp) sleeveless, not to mention that I went to high holiday services without... panty hose...(Please mom, don't judge me) still relying on my fading summer tan to complete…

Hi Rachel:

I'm not much on blogging yet either.  I write children's books about my bunnies in a series called "My Hare Line".  I didn't realize I would have to market them too, and I find myself spending all my time promoting my books.  Who knew???  What do you do?

Yes, I'm looking for a family and parenting blogger.  Complete information can be found here:

For that blog I'm looking for posts about 1) family or home safety; 2) family activities or parenting issues 3) something related to parenting and learning/teaching kids. The other days of the week is up to you. In fact, if you can think of some other subtopic you would like to write about, please let me know. Homeschooling topics are fine.
