Based on the headlines in the daily papers and the sometimes truly disturbing images broadcast from Israel, one might get the impression that the average Israeli must endure a gut-wrenching daily balagan (controlled chaos). However, Kassam missile strikes and suicide attacks have never stopped the average Israeli from working or living life to the fullest.

While "going kosher" has become the hottest trend in the Israeli fast-food and gourmet restaurant industry, unscrupulous kashrut certifying agencies are systematically offering their sometimes fraudulent services to store owners in open violation of state laws. This mushrooming phenomenon, which has taken root in both large- and medium-size cities such as Jerusalem and Modiin, has defrauded both local consumers and foreign tourists alike.

Pesach is a holiday where multiples abound. From the four questions, the 10 plagues and double dipping to the hodgepodge that is charoset or Hillel's famous bitter herb and matzah sandwich, nothing seems to be singular on this holiday. If only our unleavened bread were privy to such excess.

Kosher wines have improved greatly in the last 20 years. Much of the credit can be given to the Golan Heights winery in Israel, which ignited the quality wine revolution when they released their first wines in 1983. Stateside, however, it has been the Herzog family and their Royal Wine Corporation that has introduced U.S.-based kosher consumers to premium wines.

The economy is directing people towards cost-consciousness and dining in, rather than dining out. For many of these former restaurant-goers, especially singles who live on their own, the kitchen is alien territory. Perhaps they can prep a basic sandwich, or boil a box of pasta. But needing to feed a family or guests on an ongoing basis requires a bit more creativity and skill.

Few things say summer like a barbecue does. The sounds and smells
of grilling food shout summer so loudly, we think people are crazy if they
barbecue in the winter. So, what do you put on the grill if you want to eat
healthy? Grilled chicken is a great choice if you are looking to cut down on
fat and calories, but believe or not, so are franks. Abeles and Heymann
(OU glatt) has beef franks with less fat and sodium than turkey franks.

¡? Fruit Leather (Stretch Island Fruit, OK parve)
is a 100% natural snack. 100% natural means no
added sugar, no artificial colors or flavors, no fat and
cholesterol ¡? and great taste. The Wild Apple tastes
like a green apple, the Mucho Mango tastes like a slice
of mango, etc. But you get more than great taste and a
healthy snack. On each package of fruit leather is an
interesting humorous jingle about the flavor you are
about to eat, so you get something to read as well. For
Purim, include Stretch Island Fruit Leather in a box
with a bottle of water, a package of nuts and seeds
and call your Mishloach Manos "A Traveling Snack."
