This post is a little different than usual, because I have different jobs for you today depending on whether you're a male or a female reader.
If you’re a male reader – sit back, relax, and enjoy the following lines. Our post today is dedicated to you.
If you’re a female reader – let’s get to work!
We’ll use the opportunity that it’s Father’s Day today and think about all the wonderful, impressive, hard-working, inspiring MEN we have in our lives.
Of course, our lives are equally filled with impressive women, but our focus today is on our male counterparts.
Fathers, brothers, sons, husbands, boyfriends, uncles, grandfathers, neighbours, friends, cousins, co-workers, peers, teammates, roommates - it’s all about them today.
Ladies, here’s our task:
Let’s think of one (or more) male person, whose very presence in our lives is a gift, and who’s a source of joy and inspiration for us.
Our job today is to cherish the thought of having that person in our lives.
I’ve been blessed with a fantastic dad -who’s watching us from heaven, a loving husband, and a wonderful son, as well as with awesome male co-workers and peers whose kindness and dedication never cease to amaze me.
I could fill pages upon pages singing the praise of these remarkable men, but instead, I’ll summarize my thoughts in one sentence: I’m blessed to have them in my life.
It’s with this spirit of gratitude that I’m wishing you and all the dads, brothers, and boyfriends out there- Happy Father’s Day!

Mother’s day just passed, and I’m sure all the mothers out there received the most lovely cards and gifts and kisses. Some of us probably woke up to a homemade breakfast made by our beloved offspring, and some were treated to an awesome brunch. Many a selfie were taken with our children, I have no doubt. Me too, [...]
Hot today? I’d like to welcome summer with two of my favorite thirst-quenchers: the Mediterranean lemonade and green ice tea. A cinch to make, both are refreshing, hydrating, and… unsweetened! I often make a jug of chilled green tea (which I interchangeably call green ice tea) and hope it would last a few days. But then I sip [...]
Fresh summer flavors anyone? Today I’m inviting you on a culinary journey to the sunny shores of southern Italy, on the Mediterranean Sea. This salad takes its name from the isle of Capri -where it originates- and proudly features the colors of the Italian flag. Che bello! (How beautiful!) Juicy and fleshy tomatoes, paired with fresh sweet basil [...]
Ooh, yummy! What you see in the picture is an awesome homemade jam, made of fresh strawberries, raspberries and pears. No sugar or any other sweetener added. This jam owes its vibrant flavor to its cooking process. Cooking fruit down till most liquid has evaporated results in a concentrated compote which retains the lively flavors of the fruit. Freezing [...]
If you like fresh flavors, this post is just for you! Today we’re embarking on a brief culinary journey to the sunny Eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea. What a fabulous way to welcome summer! Fresh cucumbers, fresh herbs and plain yogurt are at the heart of this refreshing, simple dish. Greek Tzatziki is very versatile and -with [...]
Think of a group of people you know.Children, adults, at school, at work, in the community, in a sports-club, in a youth group.Is there anyone who’s an outsider? Wishing to belong but doesn’t quite fit in?Perhaps they’re new to the group, or don’t speak the language, or are slower than the others, or are struggling [...]
A couple of days ago I was offered a cookie at a get-together. When I kindly refused, I noticed the surprise on the person’s face. After all, the cookie was homemade and looked yummy. So why did I refuse?Truth is, I simply didn’t feel any need for a cookie at that moment. I had a [...]
“What do you have for breakfast?” I’ve spent the past few weeks presenting this question to just about anyone I could think of, and while I listened to the answers I learned so much! For example, I learned that many ‘early birds’ often take a homemade breakfast with them to work, rather than stop on the way [...]
Spring is finally here! It’s been a long, long winter, and I’m so glad it’s over. I’ve been dreaming about going outside to enjoy the soft sun for a while now, and today I finally did it! Armed with a bowl of fresh fruit (in the picture) and a group of kiddos -who kept snatching the fruit out [...]
